Media Update: Meet our 2011 New Media Pioneers

Technology is one of the most basic building blocks of healthy economic development. It is doubling in power to do more with fewer resources every year. If the same pioneering spirit that gave birth to America’s rich agricultural wealth can be applied to harnessing technology in rural government, education, business, nonprofits and workforce, our rural economies can produce output at a much higher speed today than ever before.

In this six part series, real world rural pioneers will break it down and explain six new media platforms giving new power to leaders to shape their own economy; doing more with fewer resources.
