Inauguration Ambient Media Mix

Categories:

I can't simply watch anything anymore, no matter how anticipated or exciting. Such is my musical ADD that I can't listen to anything without mixing it with something else. You know you're a hopeless mix geek when you try to see if you can't plug more than one audio device into your car stereo at once.

So, when my workplace allowed us to watch the inauguration in the conference room, I decided to avail myself of my advanced (and largely unauthorized) A/V setup in my office to enjoy the proceedings in private.

Analyzing how to use science, medicine & technology to benefit society and keep it from harming us.

How do the latest technologies affect our communities? How can we use science to benefit society and how do we keep it from harming us?

KBOO's The Digital Divide attempts to answer these questions and ask a few of our own through interviews, recordings, and commentary. The show touches upon such issues as open source, privacy, transparency, intellectual property, free speech, accessibility, hacking, net neutrality, file sharing, piracy, social networking, pollution, bioethics and more.

The Permitted Coup

      It is the Season to  review. Review the past year and the almost past Bush administration, that is.. The media and many people I know seem eager to believe that the new Obama Administraion will bring a fundamental change to the functioning of the Federal government and the totalitarian policies it has been carrying here at home and the Superpower violence it has been visiting to people all over the globe. This is a hopeful view but not one I share. We have been living within a country taken over by a Coup. If you doubt my use of that word I refer you to  Jane Mayers Book, The Dark Side or Eric Lichtblau's Bush's Law and my interviews with them.
