Connecting rural residents of Spokane County will take new thinking and new technology. This slide deck, put together by our Executive Director, Ariane Schmidt, shows how internet is essential for a developing economy, and how new wireless technology can connect financially unfeasible areas. Thanks to Garren Shannon of the Pullman School District for many of the concepts in this deck and for his work in connecting students to virtual education during the Covid shutdowns.
