The Internet is still abuzz over a secretive barge located at Treasure Island.

The barge can easily be seen from the new Bay Bridge. It stands four stories high and is stacked with shipping containers.

Reports indicate it was built by Google, but the company won't confirm or deny it.

Techies point to a patent Google published in 2009 for a floating data center. It uses waves for power and sea water for cooling.

A similar barge has been spotted in Portland, Maine.
