We are the carriers.
Welcome to Friday. It's been a busy week for those in the news media, especially here in New York. I don't quite know what happened to me last night, but I was on some sort of rare music trip, populating the sites of Vimeo and YouTube. Then later, I think it might have been around 1am, I had the radio on in the bedroom and the network news boomed out "get ready to pay for those youtube videos." Once again I wonder if people would be that stupid. Certainly they would: especially the crowd brought up on that ridiculous AOL system. Especially the nuts used to shelling out over $100 a month for cable TV. TV was and should always be free. Just like the Net!
85 years ago today, according to what I think I saw early this morning on WRGB Channel 6 News, the first TV newscast was broadcast. The Schenectady station was once Channel 4 - you can google or bing it if you want to fact-check.
Coming over the weekend: a very special (nothing to do with Mother's Day) blog article. I'm not sure which of my blogs it will be published on. Maybe all of them. We'll see. Have a great day!
