Keewaytinook Okimakanak presents at Emerging Technologies Conference

Keewaytinook Okimakanak staff completed three presentations in Thunder Bay during the week of October 1, 2001. The first presentation about the development of the Kuh-ke-nah Smart Demonstration was to the Board of Directors of 807NorthwestNetwork on Oct 2 during their annual planning meeting. On Oct 3, a similar presentation was planned for Contact North's Emerging Technologies Conference. The panel discussion on "Bringing High Speed Networks to Small and Remote Communities" resulted a short presentation describing the work Keewaytinook Okimakanak completed to date and the challenges for all small communities to prepare their business cases to become "smart". The original powerpoint presentation entitled 'From Potential to Practice' is available for everyone to review. As well, the National Broadband Task Force presentation was given on Oct. 4 by myself and Carl Seibel of Industry Canada's FedNor program.
