MCNC, the private, not-for-profit operator of the North Carolina Research and Education Network (NCREN), notes that more than 200 educators, researchers, government officials and business leaders from all over the state gathered at Elon University late last week to "think big" about the future of high-speed Internet, networking and the applications broadband enables. This year’s "think big" theme highlighted both the current work of network constituents as well as the future of big data and broadband, health care, K-20 education, video, cloud computing, fiber expansion, shared services, and the role broadband plays in economic development and job creation in North Carolina. In addition, MCNC President and CEO Joe Freddoso provided an update on the $144 million Golden LEAF Rural Broadband Initiative, saying the second phase of the project is 90-percent complete, with the overall project scheduled to be finished in Spring 2013.
