Greetings Family,(Contact Information At Bottom Of Page)It's your friendly neighborhood "Digital Drummer" again (smile)As an online activist, I'm always encouraging my readers...To Do Something!!! Call/email your congressmen, sign a petition, go to a rally.In this politically charged season, we must not forget that our voice (notice I did not say vote) means something.Currently before congress, are crucial issues to life on the Internet. Do you know, Obama or McCain's position on; Taxing the Net, Municipal Wi-Fi, or Net Neutrality???David Honig and the MMTC have been actively lobbying Congress and speaking up for minorities in technology. I'm encouraging you to support MMTC's efforts to bridge the Digital Divide.I'm always advocating minority participation in trade events and conferences, such as the MMTC’s Access to Capital and Telecom Policy Conference (see http://www.blackwebportal.com/wire/AuthorContent.cfm?PartnerID=57).Trade shows and industry conferences are the place to be if you want to advance your career or company. There you can meet decision makers; hear from leaders in the industry; and network with experts.Remember, We Must Share The Knowledge (Network)...To Share The Dollars!!!***************(Advertisement)*********************Need some great ideas for corporate or personal gift-giving?Then go to City Lights Software(http://www.citylightssoftware.com )and see some of the most unique afrocentric gifts available online!We Deliver ONLINE - Direct To Your Desktop for just $14.95Please take the time to purchase one our afrocentric screen savers TODAY!Don't Just Talk the Talk...Let Your Dollars Walk the WalkIf you have any problems with purchasing online contact me direct at sales@citylightssoftware.com or call (213) 944-4176******************************************************----- Original Message ----From: David Honig (dhonig@crosslink.net)To: Jim Neusom (jneusom@yahoo.com)Sent: Saturday, July 5, 2008 8:18:32 AMSubject: MMTC Access to Capital and Telecom Policy ConferenceMinority Media & Telecommunications Council3636 16th Street N.W.
