Live, from the Seattle Public Library...

The Seattle FCC hearing is underway, with an over-capacity crowd in the auditorium of Seattle's downtown library. I'm motivated to post this live update just because I want to give props to two bloggers who are here covering the hearing live: Fernsehturm and Andrew from the the Northwest Progressive Institute. We're especially grateful to them due to some problems with our audio/video streams I've been getting email about--apparently an audio cable got kicked out of its connection for a few minutes!

For folks who want to tune in but are unable, fear not--KBCS and the Seattle Channel are recording the entire shebang, and we expect to have archived recordings available online relatively soon. KBCS will be broadcasting long excerpts of the hearing on Friday, Dec. 1.

The media's job is to interest the public in the public interest. -John Dewey
