Is Google going to bath Juneau in Broadband?

I believe this would be great for Juneau.  Perhaps, we could really be the San Francisco of the north in tech respect.  Here’s the link to check it out for yourself.

Google has set a March 26 deadline for city governments to express interest, and the company plans to announce winners before 2011.

The Juneau Economic Development Council handled the city’s application, and its meetings generated excitement about the possibility that Juneau – though a longshot_ could be picked.

Jeremy Hansen, an information technology specialist working on the application, says Juneau has a chance because Google is looking for a challenge and the city presents a unique technical problem, given the mountains, the water and its distance from the Lower 48.
