Talk Vs. Action: Broadband and Economic Development in AR, Including Workforce Education
Coming to you live from the Breakthrough Solutions Conference, sponsored by the U of A Cooperative Extension Service: we've been talking about, planning, and beginning to establish broadband across Arkansas for a few years now. Should be some interesting updates from today. Don Macke, Director of the RUPRI Center for Rural Entrepreneurship at the Univ. of Nebraska gave a dynamic keynote address. The crux of his message: supporting PEOPLE (aka citizens) who want to stay in their communities and helping them start their own small businesses. I'll be downloading his remarks to youtube soon.
