My blog’s theme is to connect the threads of Charlotte’s young professionals. Well this weekend, as a part of my day job, I orchestrated a melding of the minds called the Best Minds Conference 2015. This year’s theme was Charlotte 2025: the connected City. The theme comes out of the recent announcement from Google fiber that Charlotte would be one of it’s next cities to get the breakthrough product installed. To that end, we wanted to use this year’s conference to highlight the importance of coming together for digital literacy and inclusion and really get the conversation started.
With that said, yes, I’m totally using this project as an excuse to why you haven’t seen me post lately. I hope to post another PlaceMakers interview very soon 🙂 But in the mean time, check out our story on Storify.
