Creative Competition for Google Ultrafast Broadband

by jhwygirl

Cities around the U.S. are getting creative in attempts to score one of Google’s test sites for ultrafast broadband service.

Memphis Mayor A C Wharton, Jr. blogged…

Let me stop there. The Mayor of Memphis blogs to his community. It’s a simple wordpress site, just like the this one here. Just want to make sure ya’all take notice of that…and, come to think of it, didn’t Engen, in a past life, write for a paper?

Getting back on subject….

The Mayor of Memphis is going to his city and asking them to submit YouTube video. He talks about his vision of the impact superfast high speed internet would have on his city.

Topeka is renaming itself Google for a month,

Goodness, the pressure.

Do we need to put a Google up there on the hill?

Hasalyn Harris? We know you do film….I think you should do something humorous.

Jill Valley? You are assigned the perspective piece.

Who else can we call out here? Councilperson Jason Wiener? I’m thinking someone should put you on camera. Just about everything I hear you say is gold. Maybe get with Jill Valley. Mayor Engen? – you’d be great with Hasalyn’s piece.

Pete Talbot? You’re assigned a 7-10 minute YouTube – maybe a comparative piece of Missoula and Seattle? Go with the coffee, kayak, bike commuting and hiking the hill kind of stuff. The scenery – the people? You might even have some Seattle in your archives, no?

Any other ideas out there folks? Chop chop – get after it.

  1. It’s not too late…I’m just now reading this section of the blog…let’s make a “Moogle.” Oh. Wait. I think that’s a Final Fantasy Character. Anyway, keep me posted ya’ll…I’m on it.
