    Dublin Named One Of World's Smartest Cities
    Thursday, January 21, 2010 3:42 PM
    Print StoryE-mail StoryDUBLIN, Ohio — Dublin on Wednesday was named as one of only two U.S. cities among the world's top seven smartest communities.

    The New York-based think-tank Intelligent Community Forum recognized Dublin for its underground fiber optic network, DubLink, to establish the Central Ohio Research Network, linking government, businesses and schools to the Ohio Supercomputer Center.

    The city was also recognized for establishing of the Dublin Entrepreneurial Center, and partnering with the education and business communities to ensure a highly skilled workforce now and into the future.

    Dublin joins Arlington County, Va., as the other American city. Other smart cities include Dundee, Scotland; Eindhoven, Netherlands; Ottawa, Ontario, Canada; Suwon, South Korea and Tallinn, Estonia.

    "It is a great honor to be considered in league with these global communities, and to be recognized for our efforts to keep our citizens and businesses connected to the world," said Dublin City Manager Terry Foegler in a news release.

    "To be named one of seven international cities awarded Intelligent Community status further solidifies Dublin's reputation as a community where you will find a highly educated workforce, an entrepreneurial spirit and the infrastructure to support it."

    According to the ICF, intelligent communities are those which address the broadband economy and changing technology. The ICF defined five success factors of intelligent communities: broadband connectivity, knowledgeable workforce, digital inclusion, innovation, and marketing and advocacy.

    Dublin was named a Smart21 Community in 2007, 2008 and 2009. This is the first time it has been named to the Top Seven list.

    That's because all the doctor's and CEO's live in Muirfield. Brains and money. Brady Quinn is a Dublin boy. A smart, intelligent kid from Notre Dame, but a lousy NFL quarterback.
    May we never forget those in uniform who protect us night and day in lands far away. And those in all wars who paid the supreme sacrifice in defense of our country. May God Bless our Troops and First Responders.

    There is no danger of that happening in the Detroit area anytime soon.

    Down here in Texas we had an I.Q. test.
    They told me eat this pill and you'll be smarter.
    I ate what turned out to be a rabbit dropping, and said "THAT TASTES LIKE xxxx" and they said, "SEE, your smarter already"
    So, ...Just wait, we'll catch up to your town ....
