Editors Note: The Digital Inclusion Fund is much like a “Save the Unicorns” fund. People have no idea what its used for, and they’ve never seen any results other than the city of Minneapolis getting “grants” from the Minneapolis Foundation for $25,000 to complete a report about who does and does not have access. The reports all look the same – and basically say the same thing (Wireless Minneapolis Digital Inclusion Task Force- FINAL REPORT – Monday, July 17, 2006)/(City of Minneapolis Community Technology Survey 2012 – Overcoming the Digital Divide). Unfortunately, the city of Minneapolis has only figured out how to spend money on reports while community’s lack training and information on broadband services.
In January, 2013, the City of Minneapolis will again survey city residents to get their perspectives about how they use computers, mobile devices and the Internet to better their daily lives. About 12,400 households will receive the survey in the mail from National Research Center, Inc., an independent research firm that will conduct the survey.
Households contacted to complete the survey will be selected randomly throughout the entire city, with the goal of reaching a diverse cross-section of Minneapolis residents.
If you receive a survey in the mail, please take a few minutes to complete the survey and mail it back in the envelope provided. The City of Minneapolis will use the results to better understand technology use in the city and to help guide the City’s community technology efforts.
