The Microsoft Alliance

May 18, 2006 by

Found this on BayouBuzz just now:

“New Orleans has entered into an agreement with Microsoft Corporation to develop a “Phoenix Rising Initiative” which would help with public safety and emergency preparedness and to help create further education initiatives.”

The full article contains a statement by the New Orleans Chief Technology Officer, Greg Meffert, giving more detail and the party line.

Read the complete article here. I am still formulating my opinions. On the one hand anything that can help kickstart us technologically is a boon, on the other this is Microsoft…

I welcome your opinions and comments.
