Tonight on the Linx Show: Linux World Expo update, Webcasting made easy

jeff writes: Tuesday, August 20th, 2002 from the home of Wayne's World, Aurora IL, tonight LIVE on

At 6pm pt, 7pm mt, 8pm ct, and 9pm et.... Kevin Hill, Jeff Gerhardt, Doc
Searls (Linux Journal), Arne Flones and Russ Pavlicek; have another
strange and wonderful show lined up tonight on The Linux Show!!

Segment One- The News. We will cover THE HOT NEWS of the
last few weeks tonight. In particular, we will talk about the continued
growing political
atmosphere in the IT idustry. We will have a special update on all the
cool stuff at Linux World Expo (how about that water cooled PC).

Segment Two- Webcasting Made Easy- the start of a new era.
Tonight we are pleased to make a special announcement. The Linux Show
team has come to an agreement with William Goldsmith (and additional
parties) to manage a new Open Source project. This new project has the
working title of Radio Free Universe, and will have a web site in the next couple days. The name of the project is a knock off of the "Radio Free" network used by the US government during WWII and the cold war to broadcast pro-American messages. Radio Free Cuba still broadcasts today. However, our name is to suggest a release from the shackles of the monopolistic broadcast/entertainment industry.

William Goldsmith is better known in broadcast circles as Wild Bill one of the famous (infamous) folks at KPIG and Radio Paradise in California. This partnership with Bill was natural as he has developed a number of PHP-web based radio management tools for broadcasters, and we at TLS are very adept at manipulating streaming technology to our will. This is an ideal partnership.

The purpose of this project is to begin to assemble into a single unit all the open source tools required by individuals, organizations or companies; that they may need to do LEGAL webcasting in the post-carp era. Details about the project will be discussed on tonights show.

Do not forget the:
Tell Ten Friends Campaign

We ask that you tell 10 of your friends and associates about the AOTC and
GeekPAC and the need to contribute to BOTH organizations. Also ask them
to Tell Ten Friends of their own. This will make the AOTC nd
GeekPAC grow like an organic entity, like a political virus.

It is important that people contribute to both organzations, if they can
legally do so. ONLY US voters may contribute to GeekPAC. Anyone may
contribute to the AOTC, even our friens from around the world. Donation forms are located at

for the AOTC, and here
for GeekPAC.

If you are in a band or represent an artist, please contact us asap to be added to our play list.
Please join us on the show, and check our IRC
Chat( #linuxshow).
Remember tune in at 6pm pt, 7pm mt, 8pm ct, and 9pm et. NOTE: we are now on Daylight Saving Time in the US.
