A Very Special Connect This! Show | Episode 65 of the Connect This! Show
Join us on Wednesday, March 1st at 7:30pm ET for a very special episode of the show, live from Net Inclusion 2023 in San Antonio, Texas. Christopher Mitchell (ILSR) will be joined by Kim McKinley (UTOPIA Fiber), Angela Siefer (National Digital Inclusion Alliance), Autumn Evans (City of Detroit), and ILSR's DeAnne Cuellar, and in front of a live audience at The Friendly Spot Icehouse. They'll talk pilot projects to reach neighborhoods long left behind by the monopoly marketplace, how to overcome stubborn digital equity and inclusion challenges, what it takes for cities to make forward-thinking, bold choices for better local Internet infrastructure, mobilizing local elected officials as an interested citizen, and much more. We expect a large audience and have a revolving seat for questions, comments, and jokes at Chris' expense. Join us!
