Google, finally shows its funny side

The world will get a chuckle out of Google’s April Fools prank, “TiSP.” But unless you’ve been following their plans with Earthlink to develop a citywide wifi program pretty closely, you might have missed the element of mockery.

You see, a competing plan proposed by San Francisco Supervisor Tom Ammiano proposed building out a municipally owned network by laying fiber-optic cable alongside the city’s underground sewers.

Local columnist Matt Smith called Ammiano’s plan a “boondoggle” in this weeks San Francisco Weekly, though also complained that Gavin Newsom’s lack of political skill is what’s keeping Google from giving away “what amounts to free beer.”

Touche, Google. Touche.
