[ UPDATE: ]
One of the best forums I’ve attended in the last 6 years!
Kudos to Laurin for organizing the program, Casey, Lynda, Ray, Chad and Shannon! They all did fantastic presentations covering a broad range of muni-networking issues – NPO-model, governmental operational efficiencies, collaboration, school and community usage, etc.

The municipal networking forum has kicked off.
Casey Lide, of Baller Herbst , has started out with a broad overview of business models, technologies and reasons for municipal networking.
Casey brings up the “holy grail” of FTTH (fibre-to-the-home). It’s capital intensive, but as he says, “Fibre is future proof.”
Plenty of room and plenty of time if you want to come down….
