eState Discussion Groups 

More live blogging from the eState Symposium:

Small group discussions are a big part of this day-long conference on Vermont connectivity. We just finished our second session. There are 9 of us in my group. It's a pretty diverse crowd. The youngest is in high school, the oldest is 76. We represent business, academia, the media and nonprofits.

During the first session, we talked about our communities — the ones we were part of growing up, and the ones we're part of now. We talked about how they're organized. Most of us said our communities focused around churches, schools or jobs.

In the second session, we brainstormed the opportunities and the challenges facing Vermont as it becomes a fully connected eState. We listed both, then voted on which we felt were most important.

Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
