Typekit and Google both use the same font loading technology. I’m on my iPhone at the moment but I’m sure someone can help you with finding it.
If the webfont is in Font Squirrel’s library, go for it.
Also, if you want to host the webfonts on your own server, there are a few distributors who allow you to do this. Of course it won’t be free which I find a good thing. We should support type designers just as much as we support developers or web designers.
