Breaking your constituents tv is political suicide

MAKE: Blog: MAKE Audio show: Cory Doctorow on the Broadcast Flag

Hosted by: Phillip Torrone, Associate Editor MAKE Magazine.
Show details: 20 minutes, 10MB, MP3.

I thought that this podcast, which is mainly just Cory Doctorow talking about the broadcast flag was interesting. The take home point for me was, “Breaking your constituents’ televisions is political suicide”

This podcast is basically a narrative from Cory going over the history and timeline of the broadcast flag — how it’s been struck down over time in various forms and how we’re still not entirely out of the clear.
