Silicon Prairie was always a pipedream. It was laughable then and still comical now. Bye Sly...Let the doorknob hit you!

It was one big politically motivated con job.

My bet is Google sells off when the contract is up.

The one reply to the article is from some self-proclaimed "freelance mastermind" who doesn't even grasp the difference between silicone (the rubbery stuff they make fake tits and butts out of) and silicon, the crystaline element they make integrated circults out of. KC is too country & western to be the next anything.
