Digital inclusion - closing the technology gap between the have's and have not's - may be a priority for some federal and state agencies, but the delivery of measurable results happens mostly at the local level. This is particularly true for broadband. Too many variations between cultures, geography, economic priorities, languages and other factors exist for cookie cutter attempts to get underserved constituents online AND maximizing broadband technology.
A Broadband Technologies Opportunities Program (BTOP) grant to the City of Chicago launched activities to educate and motivate constituents within nine Smart Communities to use the Net. Karen Mossberger, Ph.D., School of Public Affairs, Arizona State University, describes the impacts of programs that included workshops, advertising, skills training, and community portals. Dr. Mossberger's team conducted surveys in 2008, 2011 and 2013 to compare adoption and usage between the Smart Communities and the rest of Chicago.
Listeners learn some of the how-to's for creating and implementing effective digital inclusion programs. In addition, Dr. Mossberger reveals some of the trendsetting methods she used to measure the results that adoption programs produce, as well as upcoming research that will shed more light on how to create successful programs.

Jeffrey Lin was born with a cruel, hyperactive immune disease with no cure. Literally everything in the world is toxic. There are no safe foods to eat and he constantly struggles to breathe. Every moment the world tears him apart inside and out by intense itching, infections, and swelling. Even his tendons and ligaments react uncontrollably, causing his physiology to be continually twisted.
For 10-years he couldn’t touch water. He’s battered by every weather change. The attacks never eased over 26-years to allow sleep. He has experienced countless mental and emotional problems as well due to unrelenting stress, chronic sleep deprivation, malnutrition, PTSD, and medication side effects.
Despite a world of opposition, he holds a B.S. in Engineering & B.A. in Mathematical Economics from the #1 engineering college, Harvey Mudd. He’s a self-taught stock trader, entrepreneur, video producer, and digital media consultant for Wall St. and Hollywood.

We will discuss the importance of linguistically based reality, culture, tradition, dogma and social interaction as well as science.
