  • 1. Google fiber project RFI for Madison and interview of Preston Austin Imby.info by Wendy Soucie on March 19, 2010 When Google speaks, people listen. When Google offers to bring fast fiber networks into a city, people react. When Google suggest that we might all be able to work on a 1G network with a little cooperation, organization and commitment, people take action.

Town hall meeting educates the public I attended the recent town Hall style meeting designed to educate the public on the RFI that the City of Madison is pursuing to win the hearts and mind of Google. Community members of all flavors were present including city council, geeks, techies, grandmas, kids, business professionals, TV, radio, and newspapers eager to hear the opinions of the greater Madison community. Ice cream flavor makes for sweet deal Babcock Hall has even created a new flavor of ice cream to honor the Google Fiber interest. I tasted it and it was very good. I didn’t see it before it melted a little but it had candy pieces that were Google’s colors, granola for fiber, and nuts. I am sure it had chocolate or I wouldn’t have liked it so much!
