On November 5th, we opened up the lines of communication for our first “Ask Us Anything: An Open Talk on Muni Networks” event. That event is now available on our YouTube Channel.
We find many communities and their citizens are interested in exploring municipal networks as a possible method to improve connectivity but don’t know how to get started. We approached the event with no agenda or expectations and spent the entire hour answering questions.
As we expected, participants asked about ways to grow support, what challenges to expect, and how to find resources to educate the community. There were many other questions that represented a broad spectrum of involvement in community network projects. This was our first attempt in this format and we are about to announce an invitation to a second discussion that will be held on Wednesday, December 17, at 3 PM EST.
