    Google Fiber 

    “So you’ve heard of Google, right? The single largest search engine and one of the leading software development companies in the world! They are offering to build an experimental network in a community with speeds up to 100 times faster than current internet speeds at an affordable price. It will change how communities access information and interact with the world.

    Google states in the Fiber for the Communities request for information that their goal is to experiment with new ways of making Internet access better and faster for everyone. Here are some specific things that Google has in mind:

    -Next generation applications: They want to see what developers and users can do with ultra high-speeds, whether it’s creating new bandwidth-intensive “killer apps” and services, or other uses we can’t imagine yet.”

    -New deployment techniques: They’ll test new ways to build fiber networks, and to help inform and support deployments elsewhere, they’ll share key lessons learned with the world.

    -Openness and choice: They’ll operate an “open access” network, giving users the choice of multiple service providers. And consistent with their past advocacy, they’ll manage their network in an open, non-discriminatory, and transparent way.


    Boulder, CO wants to be the first city and has set up a website to allow voting and get fiber in B-town. Check it:

    Boulder ranked #1 on “well-being” list 

    Some place in Michigan is 2nd, then Honolulu. Yeah, Boulder.

      I think I see you. Err nah, no one on this blog does anything related to DRUGZZZzz. LOL that video is hilarious. I like the microphone idea…

      Anyone going to Sonic Bloom this year? or seeing Tipper in a few weeks? Lineup at both is INCREDIBLE!!! Hoping so much that my P.O will allow me there.

      the kid eating the watermelon is priceless

      if parents saw this video prior to their kid going to college at CU what would they think…?

      what if we were actually doing something with these 10000+ people besides absolutely nothing?

      lots of energy, lots of love, not that much initiative

      lets make something real happen next year

      funny you should mention that …when I showed this to some friends one of them said it reminded them of the south park episode where they have the hippy jam fest. “Is there anything more selfish than listening to music and smoking pot all day” I think is the line

      When I think of ideas…I keep thinking of a stage (musicians to guide the collective consciousness there)

      but when trying to get more creative with it… I guess you could collect an object from everyone who was willing then building something out of it. I can’t for sure say where this would lead. But I bet a lot of trash is left behind at that :/

      Another thought is to pass a singular object around the entire crowd and everyone could write on it/add on to it ….what better place to pass around a signatures thingy for anti pot laws or you could walk around getting signatures instead of passing it.

      More ideas guys? 🙂 Max is right…I do however keep going back to a stage or music or something to really guide the whole collective that is there… it’s tried and true, it’s embedded in our genetics..music and dance are BRILLIANTLY BEAUTIFUL…art art art
