Bold, Audacious, and Ultra-Broadband

In the recent issue of Campus Technology, Mary Grush and I chatted about OneCleveland and the relationship between universities and their cities. A growing number of contacts around the world have asked about Case and its relationship to OneCleveland. This link might be helpful for those who stumble on it.

From the interview:

Mary Grush: About OneCleveland: When you began as VP for IT services and CIO at Case four years ago, did you already have thoughts of developing a city-wide or regional broadband network?

Lev: I was attracted to Case because of the remarkable coalescence of higher education, health care, cultural, and arts institutions in the city. As I was discussing the possibility of moving from California to Ohio, I outlined a stream-of-consciousness thought process about the way in which a great university can leverage its core competency in information technology to help other institutions like museums and hospitals evolve together into something new, exciting, and maybe not yet fully understood.
