Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has appointed 21 technology leaders — a third from the Bay Area — to a Broadband Task Force that will join forces with another new agency to engineer plans to remove barriers to high-speed cable and wireless access. At least $460 million soon will be available for Schwarzenegger and legislators to implement proposals to bridge the “digital divide” — the lack of broadband data transmission to rural and poor urban areas. The governor said a key step will be slashing bureaucratic red tape.
