and Google says.......

No.  Not yet.  Relax.  

But Burgher Jon caught Mr. Google's first official comment last week on the competition for Google Fiber.   Below is their map of where they received popular 'nominations' from and we did well it seems.  The bigger circles are where they received 1,000 or more such resident inputs.  1,000 does not seem like a big threshold given the hype, but we are among a very small number of places to have even that.  Thinking like Jim R., I wonder how many folks nominating Pittsburgh were not actually residents here.  If Google would tell us it might be a diaspora story unto itself.

Anyway, the map.

I nominated Pittsburgh from my couch in Charlotte, NC.

Thanks for the mention. I hope they give out enough data for you to do something interesting with it.

anything that improves broadband speed has got to be a good thing. Google have plenty of money to help in this kind of thing.
