Anticipation has been building deep in the heart of Texas as Google prepares to announce that Austin has become the second city to take part in its Google Fiber project to bring gigabit internet connections to the masses. It’s now official: the formal event kicked off at 9am PT, and I’ll be live-blogging the proceedings here.

In the meantime, check out our stories on what this could mean for Austin and broadband development in general.

    If there is Q & A, would you please ask if Google Fiber plans to offer short registration windows for specific houses within successfully rallied neighborhoods, like they have done here in KC?

    Again, I’m not talking about the neighborhood rallies that occurred in Kansas City last August, but the final (and incredibly short) registration windows for individual houses within those neighborhoods.

    It’s a big cause of frustration here in KC if you miss the final registration window.
