i hope this is the case, i am not optimistic in u.s where. clear channel
corporation currently owns well over half the nation's radio content.
creepy shit. how did that happen?! the same way we found ourselves at war
with an enemy we didn't know existed, maybe. . .

perhaps some optimistic examples would be: streaming radio (which has been
nailed here on royalties infractions) and 802.11, which completely
surprised the telecoms.  so many new possibilities for invisible networks
utilizing various wireless transmission. if the intent of the u.s.
military in developing internet was to provide a decentralized
commmunication network for their operations, now it is a step further in
decentralized, adhoc, wireless and combined networks. let chaos reign!

apropos chaos, marc, hakim bey promotes exactly this type of people-run
communication network which thwarts governmental control.  relative
morality is practised by all not in control and fighting for a voice and
for self-determination, including "terrorists".  but i guess morality
shifts to suit the purpose, often unknowingly.

i can see this list is addictive. i have to stop for now, in the midst of
chaos here...looking forward to meeting people in manc.
