Talking about MN Broadband on Art Ware’s Gospel Hour Radio show

It seems like a funny mix – gospel and broadband. Except I’ve certainly heard people sing the praises of broadband and the blues of not having it. Either way, I had the great honor of bring on Arthur Ware’s Gospel Hour on Sunday morning today.

Art is a broadband champion in Albany NY and the radio show is out of Skidmore College. He is a founder of Technology Financing In Healthcare exceeding. He’s active in the Intelligent Community Forum as  juror. He is an ordained evangelical pastors and has great taste in gospel music. It was fun to connect with him – as I like to think of myself as a broadband champion and I have a radio show too – Mostly MN Music out of Macalester College in St Paul MN. (It’s more podcast now due to COVID.)

The conversation is retrospective of broadband in Minnesota, starting when I worked for MRNet in 1994 and up to the Blandin Foundation’s Broadband 2020 conference. We spoke about Blandin’s earliest work with their broadband vision nearly 20 years ago, MIRC (Minnesota Intelligent Rural Communities) initiative and the Minnesota Model.
