This is our first issue of TEKnopolis Monthly, an electronic magazine for the Austin Technology Community. The information provided is by, and for the community. TEKnopolis will begin regular monthly publication shortly. Currently we are in the process of developing this website, and we hope to bring you more advanced web features in the near future. In each issue, we will spotlight a different Austin technology company. We are seeking out the leaders of the community to provide quality content that can help your business to succeed. In addition, we are trying to identify resources that Austin companies can use to improve their business. Ultimately, we hope to develop a collaboratory space here so that Austin companies can address their business questions in a time efficient way; and build consensus in issues that affect the whole community.

A technopolis is generally composed of private industry, educational institutions, and government. TEKnopolis Monthly seeks to improve the communication links between these different institutions so that the prosperity of the whole community might be improved. You will see in this issue that we have drawn from people in industry, education, and government.
