What would you do for a Google network?

Apparently Twin Ports/Duluth is willing to commit to renaming all the kids Google or Googlette for the girls. It’s a good story for the weekend. Apparently Topeka, Kansas started the ball rolling by temporarily renaming itself Google. So according to the Christian Science Monitor, Twin Ports thought they “pledged Wednesday to name every first born male Google Fiber and every first born female Googlette Fiber. That’ll show Topeka.”

It’s silly – but anything that encourages an interest in broadband can’t be all bad!

On the Minnesota Google front, it looks like Dakota County is the latest Minnesota community to throw their hat into the Google ring. They have set up a Facebook page and are looking for fans, if you want to show your support for a Minnesota community.
