StateTech Magazine, August 16, 2012
StateTech Magazine named ILSR’s Blog, Muninetworks.org, to their inaugural list of the best technology resources for the public sector. One thing state and local governments have in common right now is a tight budget. Residents demand that their municipality employ the utmost efficiency with their tax dollars. And why shouldn’t they? Emerging technology has created an opportunity for these agencies to not only save money but also to innovate and engage with citizens.
These 50 state and local IT blogs will help government IT pros stay ahead of the curve. We’ve scoured the web and compiled an assortment of blogs that serve CIOs, IT workers, social media specialists and people who are interested in tapping technology to spur innovation and cost savings in the public sector.
Here is the description they gave our blog:
Community Broadband Networks
Telecom infrastructure has become the utility of the 21st century — essential to the health and vitality of the community. This blog by the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, an organization that encourages ownership structures such as public, coop or non-profit, provides news about broadband networks. Readers will find examples of localities sharing networks and success stories about access spurring economic development.
