Broadband Breakfast Live Online on Wednesday, August 26, 2020 — Champions of Broadband: Don Means

  • Our guest Don Means, Director, Gigabit Libraries Network, will speak about the role he has played as a grass-roots activist, a broadband consultant, and an advocate for the role that libraries play in closing the digital divide.
    • Don Means is principal investigator for a grant, from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, enabling libraries to explore deploying their own community-scale wireless networks.  These secondary networks support new neighborhood public access stations and serve community inclusion and resilience goals. Since March, Means has hosted a 20 part series as Libraries in Response around the question, “What is a Library if the Building is Closed?” In 2013, Means created the Libraries White Space Project to advocate library leadership in utilizing public spectrum; the project is an initiative of the Gigabit Libraries Network, a project of Mean’s Sausalito, Calif.-based consultancy, Digital Village Associates. Means is founding chairman of the Schools, Health and Libraries Broadband Coalition, launched in 2009 as a Washington-based advocacy organization promoting government policies and programs to assure gigabit fiber to libraries and other community anchor institutions.
