Google’s Milo Medin Talks Google Fiber At Kansas Conference

Google’s Milo Medin provides some context for the Google Fiber initiative at Kansas Governor Sam Brownback’s Economic Summit on Life Sciences yesterday.

Tidbits:

  • When asked what Google expects to happen, he points backwards, not forward, pointing out all the apps we have today that couldn’t have been contemplated a decade ago.
  • When talking about a transition from megabit web to gigabit web, he uses words like “revolution.”
  • At first, the gig web will be about folks doing what they do today faster, but thinks that once it’s widely available, the Gig web will bring major transformation.
  • Medin also says he thinks the pioneer spirit is alive and well in Kansas City.
  • He elaborates on an example of interconnecting local institutions (particularly health care) with remote resources.
  • Hi-resolution video-conferencing is another specific example he lays out.
  • “We don’t really have all the answers. ¬†We want to invent the future, together, with you.”
