Broadband stimulus money awarded to U of MN project.

The University of Minnesota's Broadband stimulus proposal was approved and received $2,862,333 in federal funds yesterday. The University and its nonprofit partners will develop and improve 11 computer labs throughout underserved neighborhoods in the Twin Cities. The U press release states that the proposal was selected "from among 2,200 proposals received by the Department of Commerce." The reality is that all the eighteen projects funded were selected previously by their state. (Minnesota has not confirmed this yet so I'm assuming that the state did recommend the project. Minnesota has not yet publicly stated any recommended projects.)??
