Unlike the the response made by “Dagwood Bumstead” and quoted in the comment section of Bill’s Blog #81 – “All the Things We Collect” (bottom of the blog for 6-10-10), The Trio made a decision not to watch the History Channel as Dagwood did, until the “Clean Up the Garage” Campaign for 2010 got underway. Their game plan is to throw out “one box at a time” with weekly progress reports to their Petaluma360 readers. Here is their report for Week #1 – June 6-11-10: “Although there were three boxes placed in the trash for pickup, yesterday; not all the contents were thrown out. Three scrapbooks were retrieved by Me, Myself, & I and placed back on a shelf… in the garage.

Me was proud of the fact that he salvaged over 25 articles related to an earlier blog category titled, “Our Cyberspace,” and written by a blogger who called himself – Whammer. They were published on a community web site that preceded Petaluma360 named PetalumaOnline, and edited by Michael Estigoy, from October 2003 to February 2006.

Myself prided himself upon the fact that he saved a scrapbook about PetalumaNet and CyberCity Roundtable activities from 1995 to the creation of the Cyber Institute at SSU in 2002. (Unfortunately, the Institute never really got off the ground due to the Telecom Valley economic slowdown and eventual downturn over the following years.)

In spite of the continuing economic downturn over the past few years, I believed that the time might be right to revive the basic concepts underlying the original vision for both PetalumaNet and the Cyber Institute. Today’s citizens and community leaders are still learning about Our CyberSpace and how Information and Communication Technology can enhance their local CyberPlaces, by acheving their desired goals and objectives in a more effective and efficient manner. The Trio still believes that the greatest resource of any community is the collective wisdom, intellewct, and creativity of its citizens.

The establishment of the City of Petaluma’s Technology and Telecommunications Advisory Committee was the result of the efforts of the of the Petaluma CyberCity Roundtable, which creased meeting in 2005. Our “Information Highway,” however, has continued to expand and utilize newer technologies that need to be integrated into all sectors of our community, including: business, government, education, health care, and non-governmental non-profit enterprises. Such a revival has the potential of helping Petaluma recover economically as well.

The Trio has asked Eagle-Eyes to take a look at these “saved” scrapbooks and pick out those earlier initiatives that might be just as useful and valuable today, as they were 5-10 years; plus those new ideas that were never implemented for one reason or another. Hammerhead is standing by to strike his gavel if any of these projects “hits the nail on the head.” Stay tuned.
