e-Vermont initiatives in Cambridge were spearheaded by a diverse cross-section of the community’s artists and businesses – Cambridge Artists and Entrepreneurs (CAE) – as well as representatives from the school, library and local government. In one short year, this team succeeded in bringing the following accomplishments to Cambridge:

  • Fifty netbook packages – along with weekly training for students and teachers – to ensure that every student in grade 5 receives a 21st century education;
  • A free online neighborhood forum at frontporchforum.com that 1029 subscribers in Cambridge continue to use to buy and trade household items, promote local events and volunteer needs, discuss local issues, share wildlife sightings, and recommend local businesses;
  • Three workshops on the topics of Basic Computer Skills, Internet Safety Basics, Health Care Information on the Web conducted by Vermont State Colleges’ instructors at Cambridge Elementary School for Cambridge residents;
  • The Snelling Center for Government municipal website template, Clearbearing web hosting for 2 years, domain name registration for 2 years to create Cambridge’s first official municipal website;
  • Financial support to build the Cambridge Artists’ and Entrepreneurs’ Community Portal: http://cambridgevt.org/
  • Read about many other accomplishments in the Cambridge Re-Cap (pdf).
