March 26th deadline!!

Google wants to choose one or more communities to trial 1gbps fiber to
the premises.  They are asking local governments, and citizens, to
recommended their communities.

Gainesville seems, to me, perfect since we already have extensive
community owned fiber.  If Google wants to bring in truck loads of money
and expand that for us it seems like a good deal.

On the other hand perhaps they would be competing with GRU, which would
be very bad for GRU.

They are asking for local communities to submit RFI's with data about
why we could be a good choice.  I think a joint submission between
Gainesville, GRU, UF and Shands would be killer.  Unfortunately the
deadline is in 5 weeks.

PLEASE look this over quickly.  Ideally the tech guys from those
organizations can submit the RFI quickly.  Google estimates 4 hours to
complete the RFI.  The tech guys will only have to ask forgiveness from
the politicians if Google expresses interest in Gainesville.
