Perhaps this is the first communication of the company reflecting US AND THEM respect other countries in a competitive way. I'm sure about the "Don't be Evil" slogan but ...Thanks for your attention and sorry for my English from Spain.
This isn't really us vs. them. Google is a US based company, investment in the US broadband infrastructure is of direct benefit to both the efficiency of their operations, and their ability to connect with a large number of their costumers. The fact that the US is behind other countries is stated only as a way to inspire US readers to contact their representatives and insure a updated broadband is realized.
Google makes a bigger effort than any other company I can think of to engage other countries, cultures, or languages. Too bad their wireless robot warriors will one day take over every country. GGG; Google Global Government.
We have consistently underestimated the role that increased information can play in technology advancement. But faster information does not equate to a better society. For example, can and should your children progress at different speeds than their classmates? Not in today's educational system. There's more to change than the availability - it's the use of information. Less Farmville, more biology. Can you fix that, Google?
I think its about time! I look forward to the day when its not just the President who works from home but all federal employees who choose to do so. In order for that to happen, there needs to be hyper fast networks and hopefully, this initiative will achieve that.
Hooray!My office look forward to working with the wonderful “conversion” opportunity of the four-part mega opportunity: President Obama’s ARRA-American Reinvestment and Recovery Act +U.S. Department of Education Technology Plan 2010 + FCC/Federal Communication Commission Broadband Plan and Google's test-bed opportunities. Needless to say, I will provide a pitch for Milwaukee. However, based on recent experience I hastily caution Google to watch for "hype-rhetoric-spin" and demand transparency, customer care, best practices, accountability; and, most of all, INCLUSIVENESS of the People, especially People of Color, the Work-Challenged and families caught-up in Concentrated Poverty areas. Be sure to demand that planning, design, implementation, development and the BUY-In is from the very START. Anything less, is a cruel joke on the People and guaranteed results that will be far less than your goal.We can do so much to close the “widening” broadband gap - wireless, high speed, access, literacy, fluency, employment gap -to really make America more infrastructural and systemically sound in its core quality of life issues, economic development issues, environmental issues and global competitiveness. We can in short-order begin to raise the level of sustainability in the towns, villages, small cities and large urban cities by including neighborhood-level stakeholders/talents (child-youth-adult-senior) who have been traditionally and consistently left out of the success formula. This will help raise our global status/ranking from #20 to par and better than #1 South Korea.Now is the time, but it cannot be at the 30,000 feet level, it must be "ground-level" - "neighborhood-level", "End-User Level", “business owners/entrepreneurs at the neighborhood-level, “family-level”, “student level”, “senior-level” tied to the health provider-level, government level, etc.Mary Glass – Chair/CEOMilwaukee Professionals Association
