Google's Kirkland campus just celebrated it's 10 year anniversary with, of course, a par-taaaaay today where they announced they will be donating over $200,000 to bring free wireless to Everest and Houghton Beach Parks. Until now, it is has been a total drag not being able to play beach volleyball while checking email. ;-) The network will expand on our current fiber network and be owned and operated by the City of Kirkland.
Kirkland Mayor Amy Walen said, “The City of Kirkland very much appreciates all of the ways that Google continues to contribute to the local community and is grateful to Google for this wonderful gift of connectivity. Free and accessible access to the Internet from public places is important in our modern age, and helps to make Kirkland a special place to work and live.”
Thank you, again, Google. Can't wait to see what Santa will bring this year......??? ;-)
