Some creative thinking saved the broadband dreams of 10 cities in two Minnesota counties. Could cooperatives (co-ops) provide the magic bullet for municipalities encumbered with funding and political hurdles?
Communities in Renville and Sibley Counties created the RS Fiber Cooperative to address rural communication needs. Recently the communities decided to lend the co-op funds they need to build a fiber and wireless infrastructure to cover the towns and farmlands in the co-op's service area. The arrangement resolves several challenges that a number of communities face:
it was easier for cities to pass a bond to pay the co-op to build the network rather then have the cities build it;
co-ops’ existing community relationships translate into faster network take rates;
Minnesota is one of the 21 states with a law restricting public broadband.
Mark Erickson, Winthrop, MN EDA Director and a key contributor to the project joins us to talk us through the complexities of the financial arrangement and the benefits of having the co-op take the lead on the network buildout. He also discusses the role of co-ops in the bigger broadband picture as they take aggressive action in deploying networks.
My new book, Building the Gigabit City, Vol 2, devotes significant coverage to co-ops and their increasing impact on broadband.

in Video Games
This week, it has been delay after delay notifications received from some big games. Namely Persona 5 and Star Fox Zero to name a few that are not coming out until 2016 at the earliest.
However, don't fret because it isn't all bad news we are discussing today. Some Nintendo patent leaked and the internet went wild with speculation, Final Fantasy XII Remaster may have been accidentally leaked along with a Bioshock Collection, and Michael Pachter predicts the death of gaming consoles again.
Marc discusses his trip to a used video game store and Sean discusses a retrospective he's writing that should debut soon.
Did you know there is a W2M Network Facebook Page? If you "like" the page, you will get any announcements about the podcast, anything the guys write, or other various things as well.
Almost 20 years ago, Tom Clancy and Steve Pieczenik created a new "techno-thriller" book series called OP CENTER. Designed to be shorter reads than Mr. Clancy's often nmassive Jack Ryan novels. So using ideas from the fertile minds of Mr. Clancy and Mr. Pieczenik, and employing the writing skills of some of the best action/adventure authors of the day, the OP CENTER book series was born. And for almost a decade until 2006, the OP CENTER books provided readers a timely and topical place to look at the developing an ongoing crisis situations around the world. Nearly a decade later however, the world and its paradigms have changed a great deal, and so St. Martin's Press and the Clancy state decided to restart the OP CENTER book series in 2005, with the release of OUT OF THE ASHES. Written by the impressive military history team of Dick Couch (@dickcouch) and George Galdorisi (@GeorgeGaldorisi), the new book was a critical and sales success, debuting to excellent reviews. Now, for 2006, Couch and Galdorisi have produced a second book in the new OP Center series, INTO THE FIRE.
So on this Memorial Day 2015, join best-selling author, journalist, historian, and documentary filmmaker John D. Gresham (@gresham) on Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EDT. Mr. Galdorisi will be his guest today, and together they will discuss both INTO THE FIRE and the OP CENTER series as well. So tune in today, and enjoy an eclectic hour on this Memorial Day 2015!
We will talk about the Star Trek Attack Wing episode OP events Peak Performance and A Matter of Honor and Romulan I.R.W. HAAKONA. During our second hour we will talk about Star Trek Deep Space Nine season one episodes Move Along Home, The Nagus, Vortex, Battle Lines, The Storyteller and Progress.
The fight is on when quiet Author and friend of Breaking News Journal. He doesn't like to fight, but when he has to he will. John will talk about his books, God's House, Privacy Wars, Raven's Revenge, Raven's Redemption, Soft Target and more.
John will tell you he discovered on his latest flights. He will talk about what is happening with the birds who are dying and tehir feathers are being burned off when they fly near any solar systems and how the rangers of America are losing their property to the Government so they can put up Solar Syatems, but he has really rolled up his sleave on something very close to home and that is the Healthcare problem. The Affordable Healtchare Act people have been hitting teh grounds of Las Vegas signing people up for this awful program.
The Government has been giving start up exchanges upwards of $1.1 Billion Dollars like Cover California who charged $6K upfront and $714.00 a month for premiums. That is the Tax Payers Money that is in someone else's pockets now. This exchange has closed it's doors , failed as a company and took off with the money. We can fight back now with www.100percenthealthcarenow.com which is a CO-OP Savings not an Insurance Company.
CO-OP is calling for AARP and AMAC Members and their families to sign up now. Companies who had to layoff or cut back hours or who had to close their doors need this to revitalize at $25 a month per adult, $10 per month for each child under 18 year sand even $8 a month for household pets, you cannot beat this and it's a stress reliever. Everyone gets a memebrship Card when they sign up. John is going to lay iit all on the line for you Please go to John's Page and purchase his books, read his blogs and more. http://johntrudel.com/ and browse.
