  • POSSIBLE TECH PARK SPACE: Across from the Little Rock Convention Center.

The Little Rock Technology Park Authority board will go into executive session at its regular meeting tomorrow to consider applicants for the Tech Park director's job. The meeting is at 4 p.m. in the Pulaski County Regional Building at Markham and Broadway, across from City Hall.

There are eight candidates:  of Texas Candy Bouquet International CEO;  , director at FLEX360 Web Development of Little Rock;   of Brazil;  of TargetSmart Communications in Little Rock;   of Innovis Labs, Little Rock;  , consultant with the Arkansas Small Business and Technology Development Center at UALR;   of Arkansas State University's Small Business and Technology Development Center, and  , vice president of IT at NovaSys Health.  

The Authority, which has been searching for accelerator/programming space for Little Rock's first Ark Challenge, is now considering the former On the Rocks bar space in the Block 2 lofts across from the Little Rock Convention Center. The authority has apparently rejected a space on the 100 block of Main Street next door to Orbea Bike headquarters. The new location is just under 8,000 square feet. Board member Jay Chesshir is handling negotiations; the lease is also on the agenda tomorrow.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
