Technology & The Community

Digital media technologies have changed many aspects of communication and exchange, opening new opportunities for businesses of all sizes, especially for small and new businesses and locally focused activity.

The following questions help gauge the level of local use of digital media technologies:

  • Have you bought something online from a local retailer (can you)?
  • Have you seen a local person on video?
  • Have you used local entertainment or information provided online, or on DVD or CD?
  • Do you do local business-to-business online (commerce, transfers, tracking)?
  • Where would you go for local digital media technology help?
