Midcoast Internet Development Corp. vote is June 8

For operation and internet service, Midcoast Internet is built around a public/private partnership model, where the communities own the infrastructure, which is commonly called the dark fiber. The network is operated by an experienced professional contractor and serviced by experienced private providers (ISPs), who lease space on the open access system.

With opponents going after us, we wish to remind our communities of what we are working so hard to provide:

  • Community ownership
  • Professional operation
  • Professional service providers
  • Open access network
  • Fiber to the premises (residential and business)
  • Lower costs for service
  • Higher-quality service
  • Public-private partnership, focused on universal coverage for unserved and underserved
  • State-of-the-art fiber-optic technology
  • Local customer service and support
  • With no tax increase

Red Hat Summit: Edge Deployments Go Mainstream

“Until very recently, we’ve seen early adopters in edge computing building their own bespoke solution,” said Frank Zdarsky, a senior principal software engineer with Red Hat. “As part of this, they had to figure out some of the really fundamental problems of not only how to deploy compute and storage at the edge, but also how do you secure it? How do you do software updates? How do you manage at scale? These are all hard problems that were binding significant resources for them.”

Those problems have been largely addressed with edge solutions and services. Edge deployments have become commonplace enough that practically anything a company needs to accomplish has already been done by others, with best practices and software already developed. Even better, there is now an ecosystem of infrastructure companies that can offer expertise and guidance in all stages of staking out an edge location.

The rise of NFTs and what it could mean for the collaboration economy

Many new blockchains with much lower fees are gaining popularity and are expected to dramatically reduce the cost of minting and buying an NFT.
New platforms are simplifying the NFT trading process. For instance, transactions on NBA TopShot are not conducted in cryptocurrencies but regular dollars, making it easier for everyone to get involved.

Regardless of where we go, the future is very exciting and the decentralization movement will have a significant impact on how we interact and work together in the future!
