Albany -- How can South Georgia take advantage of rapidly expanding technology opportunities?

Business, education, and political leaders met in Albany Tuesday afternoon to discuss future developments in technology. The Technology Leadership Coalition discussed policy ideas, to formulate the best way rural Georgia can cash in on future economic development in information technology.

Chairman of the T.L.C., Carlos Cardoso, said "Not just keep it centralized in Atlanta. But to bring it to the different corners of the state. To work different communities. To bring forward the importance of technology. Technology is not just about technology companies, but it also about companies that use technology."

The Technology Leadership Coalition wants Georgia to provide education to take advantage of technology innovations. And to build the infrastructure throughout the state to work in the expanding digital age.
