We’re doing this because we want to experiment with new ways to make the web better and faster for everyone, allowing applications that would be impossible today.
Wowzers. I know Google is
becoming already this monolithic company, but I have to say they do some pretty neat stuff. The mind boggles at the implication of a 1 GB/second pipe.
