I’m struggling to get my head around video. I’m a book guy, not a movie guy—I have a face for radio, not TV. But I know people learn through stories and the oral storytelling tradition is far more ancient than the written word. As I’ve adapted to adopting broadband this last year, I’ve also been trying to open my mind to online video beyond the short-form music video.
The Blandin Broadband Initiative has produced a mini-documentary (documette?) telling the story of three rural Minnesota places working to bring broadband infrastructure to all members of their communities.
- Grand Marais and the Gunflint Trail, up in Cook County, MN
- Lac qui Parle County in the Upper Minnesota River Valley
- Deer River, up north in Itasca County
It’s a nice story, maybe you can learn something to take back to your community.
