Perfect for founder CEO types too. Especially the don't over-insert yourself bit.

Google Fiber rocks!   We are thrilled to have a local team in Canada working hard on delivering great consumer experiences to our customers for Fiber! http://googleblog.blogspot.ca/2014/02/exploring-new-cities-for-google-fiber.html
Over the last few years, gigabit Internet has moved from idea to reality, with dozens of communities (PDF) working hard to build networks with speeds 100 times faster than what most of us live with today. People are hungrier ...

If a local team is working on it in Canada (perhaps KW?), does that mean Google fiber is coming to KW?

Story
Tagline
Engineering Director and Entrepreneur at Google
Introduction

I've been Engineering Director in Google Canada since 2008 - building teams in Ads, Commerce & Shopping, Chrome, Social and mobile services of many kinds. I joined Google from NeoEdge Networks, an in-game advertising company I founded in 2005.  From 1999-2008 I lived in California where I founded Quack.com (acquired by Time Warner/America Online/Netscape in 2000) and Kinitos - a consumer internet infrastructure company.   I worked as a Vice President of Voice Service and Systems Infrastructure on the Netscape campus from 2000-2002 building such services as MovieFone.  I am proud to be associated with other amazing Canadian organizations facilitating startups such as Communitech and Hyperdrive in Kitchener, and  Omers Ventures in Toronto. 


I proudly hail from Melfort, Saskatchewan - and spend as much of my summer as I can in northern Saskatchewan fishing, golfing, boating and spending time with my family.

Bhima's is my favorite restaurant in K-W now for many years. The food is amazing, the staff fun and always enjoyable, and the kitchen is a non-stop source of watchable entertainment! The Pad-Ped is never served the same twice, and never anything but a fantastic fusion of spicy fun! Check it out!
