They say the “finger of fate” is fickle, but this week it was our recording equipment that turned on us. Unfortunately, time constraints and prior commitments didn’t allow Christopher the opportunity to make a useable recording of his interview with Bill Coleman from Community Technology Advisors Bill was going to be our guest for episode 318. As a result, we’ve had to shuffle schedules and episode 318 will be available later this week. Thanks for your patience!
Bill has promised to join us for a future episode. He and Christopher plan to discuss the report he and his team published for the Blandin Foundation on CAF II and how the federal program is doing little to help rural communities in Minnesota. Read more about the report here.
That’s Not All
In the near future, we plan to also interview Hannah Rank, a Public Policy Intern at ILSR, who has worked with us over the summer and is finishing up a report on ISP Monkey Brains. The company is working with the city of San Francisco to bring high-quality connectivity to lower-income residents living in the city’s public housing complexes. We look forward to sharing the details of how this local provider and the metropolitan community are finding a way to connect those who might have difficulties obtaining the Internet access we all need.
Until then, you can listen to Christopher talk to Preston Rhea and Mason Carroll discuss Monkey Brains and their project in episode 264 of the podcast. Last year they sat down to have a chat with Christopher.
