I want @JohnKingCNN to come to our house tomorrow and talk us through dinner. “Over here we have some peas. We have peas, some people don’t like peas. Let’s forget the peas for now. What do we have here, take a look, it’s pizza. It’s early, we don’t know if this holds up, but…”

Yeah, it really came at both a great and terrible time. A couple of things that we found about the important role of states. First, it reinforced the role that states are playing in bridging the digital divide. States are just slightly more nimble than the federal government, and broadband is complicated, which is the understatement of the year. And thankfully, more stakeholders are realizing that this isn’t a wonky tech issue. But that also means that more people need to be at the table in order to bridge the digital divide. So in ways, we found that state governments are slightly better positioned to facilitate that type of collaboration that’s really necessary. But what we really learned is that for the last decade, states have been quietly rolling up their sleeves and doing the work.
