Get Internet! Learn how President Biden is reducing the cost of high-speed internet and find out if you qualify to sign up. As part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, President Biden and Vice President Harris worked with Democrats, Republicans, and Independents to create the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), which provides eligible households $30 per month off their internet bills. To deliver maximum cost savings to families, the Biden-Harris Administration has secured commitments from 20 leading internet providers to offer ACP-eligible households a high-speed internet plan for no more than $30 per month. Eligible families who pair their ACP benefits with one of these plans can receive high-speed internet at no cost. _________________________________________________ ✍ Please sign the Texas Technology For All petition today!

Apple, Google Among Top 9 Tech Companies Actively Scouting Talent For Crypto, Blockchain Positions
The interest among companies in blockchain and cryptocurrencies has been on the rise, and this bodes well for digital currencies. Big Tech companies are trying to capitalize on the potential these assets offer, as awareness and adoption increase.
Established companies are increasingly recruiting personnel to build their existing branches of businesses or create new ones to leverage the growing power of blockchain-based technologies, according to Business of Business.
Incidentally, the reverse is also happening. Crypto-focused companies are luring talent away from Big Techs, with the opportunity to work on the next big thing in tech, namely Web 3.0, being the pulling point, according to a CNBC report. Polygon MATIC/USD and Circle are among the blockchain platforms that have reportedly taken top talent away from big techs.
