* @ Will: can you confirm which is the correct number for us to use in terms of:
** the NUMBER of winners we are announcing Tuesday (is it 14, or 22?)
** the amount of MONEY they are receiving as prize?

@ Will: can you fact check / confirm that 1 gigabit per second is approximately 70% of the speed of light? Don't want to make that claim in error

@ Erica: I incorporated your edits:
https://mofocomms.etherpad.mozilla.org/IgniteBlogPost

* @ Will: we need to clear the following final blockers to ship this:

1) FACT CHECK: "Gigabit  fiber is now able to move data at about 70% of the speed of light," 

2) Include a quote from NSF. Which Erica and I will hopefully get from Lisa in our meeting w. her this morning

3) Identify speakers. Need you to identify the speakers for the highlighted quotes.

1) Currently fiber optics are limited to link propagation speeds of about 69% of the speed of light. Though this group proposes a way to have hollow tube fiber optic cables that get 99.7% speed of light.  So we're going to have to do all of this cable laying again in a few years. ;) http://www.nature.com/nphoton/journal/v7/n4/full/nphoton.2013.45.html

2) I'm having dinner with Suzi and Farnam tonight, let me know if you still need me to grab a quote from one of them.

3) Speakers identified.  I'll try to get a quote from Glenn Ricart, CTO of US Ignite, as well.
