Today is the day! Please nominate Asheville for the Google Fiber Project.Nominate Asheville for Google Fiber

Deadline: 8 PM Eastern, 5 PM Pacific.

A couple of tips about nominating:

  • It requires a gmail account
  • The big text fields cut off at 2000 characters but don’t warn you, so write lean.
  • Don’t be thrown off by the questions – the third question, for example, may not apply to you (“If you are responding on behalf of an organization or community group, please describe it”)   Just keep going and answer everything as best you can and then hit “send nomination.”

Is the 5pm deadline Eastern Time or Pacific Time? Google is on the West Coast, which would make their 5pm deadline be 8pm our time.

Also, I couldn’t find anything on the Google site that said 5pm was the deadline. Where did this come from? Is this coming from Google or just a rumor or assumption?

Bottom line: if you haven’t submitted yet and it’s after 5pm on Friday, I would encourage you to still submit your nomination. It can’t hurt and might help.

Pacific. And props for pointing that out.

The submission form is still up. It says in Google’s FAQ, they reserve the right to consider apps filed after the deadline. We should keep submitting!
