Hi Google!


GREENVILLE WANTS TO BE WIRED!

Google's announcement that it will select a community to be hooked up to next-generation fiber-optic 1Gb/sec Internet service brought out a bid from nearby Greenville.

Fortunately, we spotted the news in time to sign up to be among the 2,000 black-clad geeks who spelled out Google's logo in color in the beautiful downtown Falls Park for the benefit of a video made by helicopter.

No, the town council didn't rename the city "Google" for a day, as did another city in the running. But with this demonstration, we hope to show Google that there is enthusiastic support in Greenville to be Google's city of choice!

Mark,

I couldn't find an email address for you, but I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for all your work at Librivox. I've hugely enjoyed your readings and will continue to enjoy them for a long time to come.

Keep up the good work!

Regards,

Conrad
