The Google Fiber network is said to be up to 100 times faster than the current speed of the Internet. That's a lot faster. That's incredibly quick. That's a time-saver.
But the Social Media Club of Kansas City is one of the first organizations to ask: "What would you do with that extra time?"
The Social Media Club of Kansas City (with sponsorship and help from Brainzooming, KCNext, the Kansas City Public Library, and Polsinelli Shughart) is hosting Building the Gigabit City on October 3rd, 2011 in order to seek input about how Google Fiber high-speed internet access in the home can change peoples' lives for the better.
Leading up to Building the Gigabit City, SMCKC is hosting an online survey so that Kansas City residents and Google Fiber fans could share their ideas on an online platform. Now, the survey is being taken to the next level through the development of the Building the Gigabit City event at the Kansas City Public Library on the first Monday of October.
At the event, attendees will be divided into groups--Living, Learning and Leading categories--so that ideas can be flushed out with like-minded individuals. The goal of the event is to bring together home-owners and community residents so that everybody can share how the Google Fiber network could potentially change the lives of KC residents and the world. This free event will start at 8:30AM and run until 8:00 at night.
If you're interested in attending Building the Gigabit City and giving input about how you think Google Fiber could change the world, be sure to take the online survey from the Social Media Club. The survey can be found here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GigabitCity. More information about the event will be announced soon. Stay tuned!
