Local tech gurus

Posted By on Thu, Aug 4, 2005 at 10:24 AM

As a reporter who frequently writes about technology issues, I'm always looking for local "tech gurus" — sources who can explain some of the more confusing technical jargon in a way I and my readers can understand. What's interesting is that often the people I think of as "techies" don't think of themselves that way. This is a conversation we've had a couple times recently at Friday Coffeeblogging. Bill Simmon, who won the 2005 "Best Vermont Blog" Daysie, says he's not a real techie.

So does Michael LaRocque at techNtalk, owner of iampresentations. Writes Michael: "I never consider myself a tech guru, not in the slightest. I do write on this technology blog, and I do own a website design and development firm in Burlington, Vermont, but I still don’t consider myself a tech guru."

So who are Vermont's tech gurus?

  • Turning Point Center Fights Addiction With Crafts and Community

    Burlington's Turning Point Center is a refuge for Vermonters who are trying to find their way out of drug dependence. In the stairwell leading to the center, a mural depicts a giant hand reaching down to a solitary slouching figure. Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
