Streets.mn Interview With Christopher

Streets.mn Interview With Christopher

We received a visit in the Institute for Local Self-Reliance offices last week from Bill Lindeke from streets.mn. Bill came to interview our own Christopher Mitchell so he could learn more about our work at ILSR. The two talked about Chris’ favorite topic. In Bills’ words:

I sat down with him today in his office in Minneapolis’ Seward Neighborhood to talk about the monopoly-laden history of fiberoptic investments in the US, the frustrating failure of Minneapolis’s public/private wi-fi system, and what cities in Minnesota, small and large, can do to gain access to better broadband internet access. I hope you enjoy the conversation.

You can listen in to this lively conversation or subscribe to the podcast via iTunes.

While you have your headphones on, be sure to check out the Community Broadband Bits Podast. Christopher has interviewed network officials, community leaders, and policy advocates whose passion is spreading the benefits of broadband to as many people as possible.
