A City By Any Other Name

Our state capitol is doing something a little crazy this month. They are in the running for Google to install the highest speed internet ever(not the crazy part), along with several other US cities. In order to show that they are SERIOUS about wanting this internet, the city has decided to change it's name from Topeka, KS to...........................................

GOOGLE, KS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just for March. I know, it sounds stupid, but you know those other cities wish they had thought of it first!!! It is getting a lot of attention. Here are some links to read about it...
San Jose Examiner
Neowin.net
Topeka-Capitol Journal
Gadgetell
KTKA.com(with additional links)

Our local CBS affiliate has really gotten into the spirit by proclaiming they are broadcasting from Google, KS and when they give the weather report for the area, they say "Google" instead of "Topeka". It is hilarious!!! I love it. I have even taken to calling it Google :)

I love going to Google!!
