"Still Revolutionary": New State Tourism Campaign & easymeeting.net
The state of Connecticut´s new tourism slogan is "Still Revolutionary" and was launched on May 14, 2012 by Gov.Dannel Malloy as part of a $27m two year campaign to promote the state of Connecticut. Tourism accounts for more than $11b in economic impact and 110,000 jobs in the state of Connecticut.
That being said what does it have to do with easymeeting.net and videoconferencing? A lot... with the state of Connecticut now heavily marketing it´s "revolutionary" nature it is not just focusing on the heroes of the American Revolutionary War that fought, supplied and died but it´s ability to change (revolutionize) industry. From the Revolutuionary War era with the Submarine (The Turtle) by David Bushnell to the Cotton Gin by Eli Whitney and on to the Industrial Revolution to Rubber by Charles Goodyear, the first telephone by Alexander Graham Bell, the Helicopter by Igor Sikorsky and so on Connecticut is small in size but big on revolutionary ideas. Easymeeting.net having chosen Connecticut for it´s North American Headquarters is part of the latest revolution in technology.
Videoconferencing is relatively new but is part of the latest and greatest wave of technological innovation of which easymeeting.net with it´s easy to use platform is an intricate part of. I often contemplate what Alexander Graham Bell did with his "revolutionary" Connecticut invention the telephone and how the market reacted. Surely there was a lot of excitement among the scientists of the time (our modern day version of IT) but what about "John Q. Public"? Like videoconferencing it took time for acceptance and adoption and most likely only after Bell introduced the operator which are our easymeetingExperts. The same with regard to the first White and Yellow Pages (both Connecticut Inventions) which is the same as our easymeeting.net directory. It must have taken considerable time to populate and eventually have "John Q. Public" to use it. There are many similarities between easymeeting.net and many of those great "still revolutionary" Connecticut Inventions.
While Massachusetts and Virginia have long profited off the "Revolutionary" time Connecticut should not be forgotten and as then, now continues to be a leader in "revolutionary" thinking and innovation. Easymeeting.net has choosen Connecticut due to this fact and with the great technology that already exists why should one have to work in the big city when they can have a better quality of life and use the techology we have already "revolutionized" while being able to be home for dinner with your family, or when they are sick? To me that is "revolutionary" and "Time Well Spent".
It is the wave that cannot be stopped and Connecticut again with easymeeting.net on the team is part of the technilogical revolution that is not only now limited to Japan and Silicon Valley, or to classrooms at M.I.T and Harvard but here in "Still Revolutionary" Connecticut.
