In your short time on the planet, you and other college-age adults have seen technology grow at breakneck speeds. You probably never have had the pleasure — or experienced the frustration — of blowing into an NES cartridge (Google it) to get your favorite video game to work.
And you’ve probably never had to cancel your plans in favor of sitting at home just to make sure you don’t miss an important phone call.
So, you’re used to technology keeping you up-to-date. That’s where we come in.
You might be away from home now, but just as you rely on technology to stay connected to it and the rest of the world, it can be your ally in navigating your way through Duluth. I mean, we even have a village devoted entirely to technology — well, sort of. The building’s called the Technology Village, but the place there that best suits your needs most likely is Pizza Luce.
Hash it out
Long ago — in 2008, or so — Duluth’s Twitter pioneers blazed a trail, assigning the city the hashtag #dlh as a designation for all things Zenith City (that’s our nickname, though this lifelong resident went an embarrassingly long time before knowing that). Search that to find the people, places and events in Duluth.
Give us, @duluthnews, a follow while you’re at it. We’ll keep you up to speed on all kinds of news, weather info and events taking place in your home away from home. We welcome your questions and interaction, too. Our A&E handle, @DNTAnE, also is a good follow.
And if you want, you can find us in your Facebook news feed, too, sandwiched between a friend’s selfie and those old-looking eCards with the clever quips.
For iPad users, the News Tribune app constantly updates news from Duluth and the surrounding areas, across Minnesota and around the world.
Download it from the App Store.
