More than Corn in Indiana…

Technology is not usually the first thought that comes to mind when you hear “Indiana”, right? That’s okay, it’s “CORN!” The amazing thing is that Indiana is really a great place to live and the state is really growing into a world class city.

Examples:

Honda just announced last June that it is building it’s newest North American plant on 1700 acres of Indiana soil. The facility will begin production in 2008 and employ 2000 people. (blogged here)

In July, Gov. Mich Daniels announced the opening of the first of 3 BioDiesel plants in Indiana. The new facility will produce up to 250,000 gallons of biodiesel per day, which adds up to more than 80 million gallons per year. With this facility, two other biodiesel and six ethanol plants currently under construction, Indiana is looking pretty sharp when it comes to biofuel production. (blogged here)

A new blog, IChooseIndy.com, highlights why businesses and professionals are moving, and staying, here in Indiana. It’s full of remarkable personal accounts and insight into what makes Indy a great place to live, work, and raise a family. Highly recommended read.

As a Technology Manager for a large non-profit organization and two Charter Schools, I see technology used on a daily basis to educate at-risk youth, non-English speakers, physically challenged, deaf, blind, the list goes on. It’s amazing to see how technology can enable a person to accomplish things never before imagined and to witness a smile on the face of someone who just accomplished something on their own.This is my blog. My Day to Day Interactions with Technology.
