Hey Brain, what you want to do tonight?
take over the world?
No Pinky, Were Going to Map the Internet in Oregon.

Statesman Journal --

Pinky: what?

Brain: that's right pinky... I have a new plan?

Pinky: and what's that Brain?

Brain: the Obama administration created the American recovery and reinvestment act and were going to get $2.1 million of it.

Pinky: But Brain, that's an awful lot of money.

Brain: Absolutely Pinky. We will use $1.6 million of the funds to develop broadband service maps and $500,000 will analyze barriers and increase awareness of the technology and offer other digital literacy programs.

Pinky: that's wonderful Brain. Do you think they'll actually go for it?

Brain: they already have Pinky... they already have.



National Telecom and Information Administration American Recovery and Investment Act of 2009

"analyze barriers and increase awareness of technology..." like give me a break... this isn't some third world country out in the middle of nowhere. (well maybe, we are talking about Oregon with chief Kulongoski at the helm.)

And as for mapping the Internet... thanks to cellular companies such as Verizon I can connect my computer to the Internet just about anywhere in the state of Oregon.

and I would think that there is a pretty good chance that Verizon and others have already mapped the Internet in Oregon.

And finally the question that comes to mind... how many jobs is this going to create?

It's our money folks!

It is incomprehensible to me why the PUC would need do much more than call Oregon's telco and cable providers for existing coverage maps.

I could make one helluva map from telco and cable for a lot less than $1.6-million dollars. I could even make copies.

Of course, I'd only create one job, where the state will probably create an hundred.
