Google Fiber coming to Austin?

Rumors are rampant that on Tuesday Google will make an announcement with city leaders that Google Fiber will be coming to Austin. If this turns out to be true, the ramifications to the city as both a music and arts city as well as a high tech city could be practically beyond imagination.

What would you do with gigabit Internet if you had it?

The possibilities are pretty cool.
I use Clear (WiMax), because I just can't justify giving AT&T or Comcast my money. I'm in Houston, but if I had Google Fiber I'd leave the sandbox and do more online gaming, probably avail myself of more cloud storage, and, if Google gets its TV offerings sorted out, I could conceivably reattach that cut cord.
