The newly named Minnesota Broadband Advisory Task Force should be meeting in the next few weeks to see how they can best lead the state to ubiquitous broadband coverage. It’s a good group with a hard job – but there are lots of smart people willing to offer advice and support to the Task Force. Yesterday I posted advice from former Task Force member Mike O’Connor. Today I’m pleased to post a conversation on the topic by Rick King and JoAnne Johnson – the Chairs of the previous Task Forces.
Both Rick and JoAnne have been in the unique position of leading the group that leads the state to more, better broadband. On a good day I think it was like leading an orchestra – on a bad day it was herding cats, but there were a lot more good days that not. I think their advice will help keep the music and broadband flowing to the areas in need.
