Dr. Turner Lee mentioned Larry Irving, the person who coined the term the 'digital divide'. Larry spoke at our forum in February, you can watch his remarks here (after this panel of course!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2_5IS_RDg4&feature=youtu.be
Leslie Boney
28:57
Yes Dr. TL! Who's not getting broadband? Same group dying of chronic disease; same people suffering disproportionately with mental health challenges -- people of color, immigrants, rural residents. Broadband can help overcome many of those challenges.
Kimberly Evans

Sarah Langer

Preach!!! We have so much work to do!!
Leslie Boney

A new mantra: "No Child Left Offline"

Yeah Nicol! We need ALL options on the table. We have to remove these laws that stop communities from providing broadband to their citizens and businesses.

Stephanie Jane Edwards
58:55
Something I think I'm hearing from both the discussion time and the experts on this panel is that a multifaceted, holistic approach is necessary for success. And if one org can't bring multiple facets to the table alone, we need to move forward with partners who can combine facets to move forward comprehensively together.
Laura Fogle
01:00:57
Shout out to @Amy Huffman for providing the opportunity for us to form partnerships in NC around digital equity and inclusion through the NC Digital Equity and Inclusion Collaborative.
Kathryn de Wit

This problem of connecting a driveway is a common one--we're watching California's pilot line extension program, as well as Vermont and Tennessee allowing this with their CARES funds.
Leslie Boney
01:04:33
"Connect 313" in Detroit sounds great. We need to figure out a way to do "Digital 828" and "Digital 910" and "Digital 252" and "Digital 704" and "Digital 919" Who are the nontraditional companies like Quicken in each of those area codes that are going to start those?
Thomas Parrish
01:05:04
Yes, thanks for sharing Bill!
Hunter Corn
01:05:50
If the pandemic (after the Great Recession, after issue and issue) hasn't taught us to disturb or discard the ROI model... we have a larger issue. The utility mindset seems with folks. THe action hasn't caught up
Tracy Clayton Sexton
01:05:56
don’t forget “Digital 336”
Leslie Boney

Yes!

“He who has access will be ready for tomorrow”
Anne Bacon

Yes, we are not going to return to a pre-covid society. At NC Community College System, we're adding a whole goal to our strategic framework - "Flexible Learning." Investing $10M in Rural Broadband/Security for our CCs.
Deryl Davis Fulmer
01:11:00
Glad to see that the NCCCS is invested with the rural broadband/security!
