Google smiles on KC

The Topeka gag turned out to be not so far off after all: Ultra high-speed broadband is coming to Kansas City, Kansas. I work in the informatics division of KU Med Center, which gets special mention:

We’ll be working closely with local organizations including the Kauffman FoundationKCNext and the University of Kansas Medical Center to help develop the gigabit applications of the future.

While I live in the KC metro area, I live in one of the 'burbs, not KCK, so this won't affect me at home much. But it should be a huge shot in the arm to the KC startup community.
