Not only were participants full of amazing ideas, but they were full of unique ones. My small group, a group that was to discuss Google Fiber's potential for higher education, consisted of a variety of different people with unique backgrounds and experiences--a social media strategist, a small business owner, an SEO expert, a freelancer, a graphic designer and many others.
The event kicked off with the notion that Kansas City "can be the Creative Crossroads of the United States." And after sitting in with my group and brainstorming amazing (and some outrageous) ideas, I couldn't help but agree.
Check out some of my pictures from Building the Gigabit City. Hosted by the Kansas City Public Library, the event was also open to the public at 6:30PM for a reveal of the Gigabit City ideas.
