Vermont the E-state

Posted By on Mon, Jan 8, 2007 at 10:17 AM

Lots of people talking about Governor Douglas' announcement last week of his vision of Vermont as the first "e-state." I haven't quite parsed what he means yet, and if you haven't either, and you live in the Burlington area, you might want to catch this on Channel 17:

Join us tonight (Monday 1/8) at 6pm for a LIVE CALL IN to discuss: Vermont: The First E-State

Governor Douglas announced plans last week to transform Vermont into the first “e-state." What does this mean exactly? Is this a plan to transform Vermont or simply subsidize private telecommunications companies? What is necessary for Vermont to build a robust platform for educational and economic success in the Internet Age? Can other nations inform our efforts? What are the real investments that must be made? What are the real challenges we face? And, why do we want to be an e-state anyway?

Panelists:
Steve Shepard, Telecom Consultant
Maureen Connolly, NorthLink Project
Ralph Montefusco, Communications Workers of America

The moderator will be Lauren-Glenn Davitian. The format will be interview with live calls. Repeat airtimes will be announced.
