This is kind of geek news, but more interesting to me is that I used to work for this guy. He wasn’t a Mac-head then, though.

Although it’s not a done deal yet, according to this article, TV and newspapers may be deregulated just like radio stations were in 1995. Don’t you just love the nearly-identical radio stations you can pick up all around the country today, courtesy of such lovely people as Clearchannel (motto: Payola? We don’t know about payola.)? I particularly love all the “Kiss FM” stations you can pick up, with Rick Dees in the morning. Or, the oh-so-creative “Best of the 80s 90s and Today” breed, which is like quaaludes for the mind.

Strangely, the companies likely to be affected by this, the big networks, are not really covering it at all. What a shocker. If you appreciate having local news that is local, if you like the idea that your local newspaper is not just a satellite-cloned copy of USA Today, perhaps you might want to let your voice be heard? The FCC is soliciting comments from the public.
