us-west-1 is Northern California (Bay area). us-west-2 is Oregon (Boardman).

Incorrect. GCE us-west1 is the Dalles, Oregon and us-west2 is Los Angeles.

What I said is correct for AWS. In retrospect I guess the context was a bit ambiguous.

(I will note that I was technically more right in the most obnoxiously pedantic sense since the hyphenation style you used is unique to AWS - `us-west-1` is AWS-style while `us-west1` is GCE-style :P)
