I am pleased to post two more shows for this quarter, just in time for United States listeners to sit and digest leftover turkey. Both shows focus on communications theory and policy, but with reference to different tools. The first show, Show #102, November 11 is my interview with Prof. Geert Lovink of the Amsterdam […]

I signed on to a letter drafted by Profs. Adam Candeub and Brett Frischmann (Brett has been on the show in the past) in support of the FCC’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (“NPRM”) regarding protecting the Internet as a free and open network.
