Last week, we learned that Cleveland is the only U.S. city to be named as a finalist for the Intelligent Community of the Year award.

At the same time, we have one of the most dynamic blogging communities on the planet. Citizen journalists in Northeast Ohio leaders are reshaping markets and politics in our region. They are changing the face of communications and accelerating the development of new networks.

Join us Wednesday for an inside view of how citizen journalists are changing in NEO. Connect to opportunities in a new innovation network emerging in Midtown.
