  • I grew up on a small farm in Michigan – we lived 18 miles from town and we were disconnected – practically off the grid as they say.
  • Got our first TV when I was in the ninth grade and our first telephone shortly thereafter. Now we were connected – big time!
  • Fast forward to today – and don’t ask me to reveal the number of years I’m skipping over here -- and we are sending data through glass in a matter of seconds.- But we’re too often attempting to do the same old things despite access to new technology.
  • - Bought a helicopter to replace our car and we still drive it down the road because we don’t really understand what it can do. Well, things are about to change and change big time!
  • Tried to append technology onto existing models of education – including higher education.Need to stretch our thinking about how might use our tools.
  • BMW example: allows customers to pick features, car rotates on hologram, also projects interior (Not sure what you meant, here is 3-year-old video of BMW 7 Series Holographic Car Launch at http://vimeo.com/7082967 )
  • - Mariah Carey appeared before audiences in Germany, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro and Poland simultaneously on 17th November 2011 as a Musion 3D projection. Interacting with real dancers and live audiences in each location, this created a unique ‘life is for sharing moment', as part of Deutsche Telekom's 'Life is for sharing' campaign.Imagine studying Pickett’s charge at Gettysburg in 3D as though you were there – or watching Thomas Edison discover how to make electricity work to light our world.Or, to use this technology to simulate something in the future – we know that this kind of learning is the most effective when dealing with difficult issues and questions.
  • Colorectal surgery: Surgeon could have been at Mayo Clinic or across the world if he had reliable high speed broadband.
  • - One of our Small Business Development Center clients is Cineviz in Green Bay. https://vimeo.com/49940355Scott Koffarnus and his staff can serve clients like Tyco, Intel, Symantec, Nickelodeon, Nike, Bemis and global advertising agencies.The company’s main markets are corporate, retail, experiential (event) marketing and museum/exhibit design.Some educational experiences include interactive exhibits for the Children’s Museum of Green Bay,MOMA in New York andthe Detroit Historical Museum. Cineviz also is branching into agritourism through a first-of-its-kind Indiana pig farm tour and design of the related education center.The company motto is: Do the impossible.

  • High Speed “speed of light” connections are what makes all of this possible.
  • By the end of this year South Korea plans to have introduces 1Gbit service to every home in the country – are you kidding me?If you have cable and get your internet via cable, you are probably getting maybe up to 4Mbps.If you have DSL from your phone company, maybe you are getting 2-3MbpsThey are talking about 1 Gigabit – I billion bits/sec while we are struggling to get 2-4 million – they will have almost a million times the capacity as we will. Why do you think they are doing this?. http://www.gizmodo.com.au/2011/02/south-korea-target-1gbps-internet-connection-by-2012/ (Note: You reference a million times the capacity we have. The following article references 200 times faster than the speed most Americans have.)http://thisorthat.com/blog/1-gbps-south-koreans-internet-speeds-leave-america-in-the-dust
  • - Broadband enables economic opportunities and improves our quality of life, whether we’re small town or rural residents who access medical specialists via telemedicine….
  • Or we’re searching for and applying for jobs online...
  • -Or we’re building businesses in markets beyond our own communities.- High speed Internet is what allows a company like Doctors Foster and Smith in Rhinelander to be one of the largest pet supply companies in the entire world.
  • For their sake and for the future of our state, we can’t afford to quarrel about the little stuff.We have to focus on the big picture.I want to tell you about some people who are helping us do that.- First, I’d like to have a person stand up who deserves some recognition and thanks - Dave Lois.As most know, Dave is Executive Director of WiscNet, the organization that operates the Research and Education Network.And since the federal stimulus grants were announced now almost three years ago, Dave has been our active partner.We’ve relied on him for advice and counsel throughout our endeavor, we’ve leaned heavily on him and his staff’s technical expertise and we truly count him as a friend of UW-Extension.Dave could you just stand so we can acknowledge you?(If you want this photo, I will purchase it.)
  • -The next person is someone I truly admire - John Jamar:  president and CEO of CCI Systems.I haven’t made it up to see him in Iron Mountain, Michigan, yet but what I know is that he runs a stellar operation – employee owned, that has made it a business practice to serve very rural communities and that he truly believes in this thing we call collaboration.His staff in fact calls it Coopetition and when presented with this idea of working hand in glove with us -- public and private together – he jumped at it, a decision we have all gained from.Please welcome John, who will share his perspectives on our work thus far and going forward.  [speaks 8-10 min]
  • First up is Senator Terry Moulton from the Chippewa Valley.
  • Next we’ll hear from Senator Jerry Petrowski from the Wausau area.
  • Now we’ll hear from Senator Kathleen Vinehout, who is from Alma on the Mississippi River in Buffalo County.
  • Now we’ll hear from Senator Dale Schultz from Richland Center.
  • - The Public Service Commission for the last year and a half has been leading the state’s effort in broadband planning.- This has included an extensive mapping endeavor, creation of nine regional planning teams and working closely with the many stakeholders - all to benefit citizens, businesses and broadband providers in Wisconsin.- Most recently UW-Extension has joined this effort as Public Services Commission’s University Partner for measurement and evaluation – a role that we have enthusiastically embraced.- All of this has all taken place under the leadership of Commissioner Phil Montgomery. - We welcome the opportunity to hear from Commissioner Montgomery now.
