A compilation of Bloomington’s technological leaps and bounds is now available on the city’s website.
The city’s Information and Technology Services Department has published a timeline and history essay charting the top technological advances in Bloomington over the past 200 years. The city partnered with Martin Minner, a local historian and writer with a technology background, to conduct interviews and research how the public, private, nonprofit and education sectors worked together to spur innovation. The project is available online at bloomington.in.gov/departments/its.
“A fascinating account of our community’s accomplishments in IT, this project also showcases the innovative thinking, bold decision making and hard work that have launched Bloomington into the new economy,” Bloomington Mayor John Hamilton said in a press release.
