If you are interested in the where the world is going with technology and how the North Coast could participate you might want to make time for Pulling Back the Redwood Curtain: Humboldt County’s Next-Generation Internet Opportunity, Wednesday, March 1, 5-7 PM at the Wharfinger Building in Eureka.

Joaquin Alvarado is a good speaker and has a great way of making the future seem tangible and practical. That is, of course, if we have reliable bandwidth, a big issue here in Humboldt County. The more we understand how much our economic and pesonal lives will continue to be tied to the global network, the more we will understand how important alternate fiber and broadband deployment is.

BTW, now that the Wharfing Building finally has wireless access, you can stay connected dureing the event!
