I think Notch should think outside the box when it comes to picking a location! Maybe a location like Newfoundland! One of the best places to live in Canada! Great people, Great scenery, great food. Over all an Awesome place.
That won't do for America. We're in a economical crisis, they're even joking that our dollar could be the "new peso." All thanks to our looser two-party system; one side does everything wrong, one side does nothing at all. Once side comes up with bad ideas, one side makes them worse. One side has no brains, the other side has no balls/spine. One side breathes lies & makes **** up as they go, the other breaks all their promises & looses track of their goals.
for $90 you could....
*Feed a family of 3 for a week.
*Replace 1/3 of your old kitchen appliances.
*Make a two month student loan payment.
*A month of grama's or grampa's medical prescriptions.
*2 tanks of gas for your car, or maybe only 1.5...
As for location, I like em real small...The Red Lion & adjoining hotels in SeaTac, WA...far enough away from Seattle traffic. Though there is a hugenormous convention center in Seattle not far from a Cheesecake Factory & Pikes Place Market.
Most players are in North America and Europe, so by majority rules, it's most convenient to have it in North America or Europe.

The reality is, no matter what he does, as much content as possible should be uploaded live to facebook or Youtube. The cost of fuel and geopolitical realities of travel through various countries are not going away just because Minecraft is an awesome game.
