We eat, sleep and breathe Internet here at Cruzio, and we know that in Santa Cruz we're not the only ones.

Cruzio customer service has a challenging job. We need to help you with your computer, even though we aren't in the room with you. That means our staff needs to be very good at explaining things.
What does that have to do with Peanut Butter and Jelly, that classic of American Cuisine?
To keep staff up-to-date in our fast-changing industry, we spend a lot

However, in recent months, Santa Cruz is making waves in another way, following Kansas City, Chattanooga and Lafayette in creating a hyper-connected "Gig City."
