I've been following Google Fiber news for a while (and am still waiting for it to come to my neighborhood--Summer 2013, fingers crossed), and I read in Silicon Prairie News that the first houses in Kansas City are now being hooked up. It's becoming real.

The homeowners are part of a group of KC startups in Hanover Heights (the first Fiberhood) that call themselves KC Startup Village. These startups have specifically moved to Hanover Heights to have Google Fiber available for their companies, and are actively recruiting other startups to join them. They've provided some cell phone video of the technician's exterior work. The KCSV blog reports as of a few days ago the interior installation was still incomplete.
In the video, the technician states [speculates?] Google Fiber is going to Dallas next, but in the SPN article Google clarifies that the next Fiber location has not been decided.
