You've probably heard the news that Google is planning to build ultra-high speed broadband networks in a small number of trial locations across the country. And you've probably heard that Center Maryland's Tom Loveland (also CEO of Mind Over Machines) has been picked to serve as Baltimore's volunteer "Google Czar."

Now is the time for everyone who supports this initiative to show their support for Google picking Baltimore as one of the trial locations to deploy 1 Gbps, fiber optic connections directly to people's homes. Become a Facebook fan. Follow the effort on Twitter. Put yourself on the map and your company's logo on the list of supporters at www.bmorefiber.com.

Just yesterday, Constellation and BGE both signed on as supporters, and William Kirwan, chancellor of the University System of Maryland, sent in a letter of support. (Read it here.)

Google is judging cities on everything from the creativity of their ideas, to the level of support from residents, businesses and others. Center Maryland sees this as an amazing opportunity, not just for Baltimore, but for all of the state. Just a couple of minutes of effort can help demonstrate our commitment.
