Congrats Provo! You got (fill in the blank)! That is truly epic! (The channel 17
link is down.)
Breaking news:A wall will be built rivaling the Great Wall of China
and the Berlin Wall. This will protect all our residence from the evils of the
"outside" world. We will be free of the growing popularity of the
PAC-12. All perceptions of how great we are will be reinforced and multiplied
as never before. As always, "The world is our campus." Only now the
world, as we know it, will be well defined and contained within the wall's
boundries. So be it.
So what was the epic announcement? I thought it was going to be an airport
Wonderful announcement, however Channel 17 stalled online just prior to the
"epic" announcement. This is why Google Fiber is needed! Glad I bought
10,000 shares during the initial offering . . .
You call that "Epic"?? REALLY??!Oh, Provo! You truly keep
the rest of us entertained; thank you.You guys sound like some
SUPER-NERD on Christmas morning, all excited about his new "128-zettabit
hyperchannel flux inductor with parallel infinity bandwidth!!!" Now you can
rule the world!The ProvoBuzz blog said, "Utah County Is a Tech
Hub".That should read, "Utah County Is a NERD Hub". 8^)
CONGRATS!! Utah has an educated workforce and is a wonderful place to live ~
I'm not surprised Google would want to be a part of it.
Are they seriously putting a B and U on the mountain? Wow, as if anyone was
really uncertain what that giant Y on the mountain represented.Ridiculous.Proud BYU Alumn.
@Who am I sir?Your sneer says more about you than it does Provo
They have it in Kansas City, Kansas & Mossouri which is a large area. Why
not all along the Wasatch Range between Payson to Logan?
If you are familiar at all with Google fiber, this really is "epic." I
don't suppose there's any chance they could expand it up into
northeastern Utah County while they're at it? We have much fewer options
than Provo for Internet connectivity...
InspectorCMore announcements regarding the Provo Airport are
forthcoming.Regarding Utah County, I find the perceptions of people
living in and north of SLC fascinating. Some seam to think of UC as rural and
less developed the way one might think of Santequin.The Nerd comment
is a new one though. Utah is in good hands if the state brain trust is housed in
happy valley. I've spoken business in Palo Alto who that have Provo on
their radar now that the business climate in California is degenerating.Three things about UC that I'm excited about--One could drive
from as far as Sandy to the Provo airport, be parked, checked-in and on the
plane in no less time than it would take to do the same through the Salt Lake
Airport. Direct flights to Phoenix, Oakland, LA and maybe LV in a few months.-Google's announcement. Cool any way you slice it. A solid
differentiator for those looking to establish or relocate a business. Is there
room for a data center in Provo? We may find out.-BYU returns a very
good defense. Decent improvement from the offense will make for a very fun
InspectorCIt's laughable that whiners still dialing in on 5600
baud modems would be disparaging folks who will soon be streaming 5 GB/sec.Nerds, btw, have all of the latest toys.LOL at your
I had to look at the timestamp on this to make sure that this was not an April
Faster internet. How epic.
Flashback-Yes, to both established and new start-up businesses,
"epic" is an appropriate term. We use the web for so much more than
looking at websites and checking email now. New ways of utilizing these networks
are being invented everyday. Some in happy valley. For a community that is
recognized and working to develop as a technology hub with a highly educated
workforce, google building its world class infrastructure in Provo is a huge
deal.Simply calling it "faster internet" is like calling a nuclear
submarine "bigger"Never mind that it houses its own nuclear
reactor and can cruise the world undetected for 6 months at a time before
needing to come up for air:)
So, does that mean that we can all end the practice of throwing tax money away
