Burlington Telecom Meeting Report 

No, it's not an official Seven Days write-up. I was working while this meeting was going on. Not sure if one of the writers made it there.

But Haik Bedrosian showed up, and posted this meeting round-up on BurlingtonPol.

*Councilor Decelles spoke against keeping Al Jazeera on BurlingtonTelecom, citing veterans who live in Ward Seven. In a moment of muddledlogic, he said he would never subscribe to Burlington Telecom becauseof them. Actually, Paul will never subscribe because he doesn't believein the city owning a telecom company, whether they have Al Jazeera ornot.

*Several speakers including James Vos reminded the committee that Al Jazeera has a large audience in Israel.

*One lady reminded councilor Decelles that veterans fought for our freedoms, including freedom of speech.

*Owen Mulligan said it was pathetic that BT no longer takes cash payments.

The Free Press has a more thorough but less colorful account. There will be another public meeting in a few weeks. Stay tuned!

    Social Sentinel, a Burlington-based company that identifies threatening content on social media, was among the winners of the 2018 Tech Jam awards, presented last Friday at the 12th Vermont Tech Jam.

The awards ceremony was the culmination of a busy day at the free career and tech expo organized by Seven Days and presented by Vermont Works. Representatives from more than 50 companies and colleges talked with hundreds of attendees who walked the expo floor. Jeff Couture, executive director of the Vermont Technology Alliance, said he talked with job seekers from across Vermont and outside the state at the event, "including someone, suitcase in hand, who visited from North Carolina."
