Chattanooga on the national stage!

Chattanooga is in the news! Last Wednesday, our Gig City contest made it to Wired Magazine's pages:
When we think of American tech innovation, places like the Silicon Valley and Seattle tend to come to mind more readily than Chattanooga. But maybe we should give Tennessee’s fourth largest city a bit more credit. Last year, the city-owned Electric Power Board (EPB) brought the country’s first gigabit-per-second fiber optic network to more than 150,000 households and businesses in a 600-square-mile radius.
Chattanooga also got a mention in last Friday's New York Times:
The good news is that there is great pent-up demand for walkable, centrally located neighborhoods in cities like Portland, Denver, Philadelphia and Chattanooga, Tenn.
  These are exciting times to be in the Scenic City!
