U.S. to Close 800 Computer Data Centers
The federal government plans to shut 40 percent of its computer centers over the next four years to reduce its hefty technology budget and modernize the way it uses computers to manage data and provide services to citizens. Computer centers typically do not employ many people to tend the machines, but analysts estimate that tens of thousands of jobs will most likely be eliminated.

Yes, and wars typically do not employ many people but tens of thousands are usually eliminated as their result. Yay?
