Yes, Commissioner

This month I started serving on the City of Austin Telecommunications Commission. Tonight was the first meeting. I was all excited to come back and blog all the exciting geeky technology policy stuff we did.

But we didn't do any. It was just a worksession to markup the annual workplan document. *yawn*

So, instead I'll pitch the Grant for Technology Opportunities (GTOPS) program. This program awards matching grant money to local organizations that are doing cool things with technology. These are modest grants, ideal for small community projects. If you have some idea for a project or service that would benefit portions of Austin, you ought to look into it.
