Free Media and Bottom Up Media

Lot's going on in this area.

The Real Public Radio Network guys are up and running at www.rprn.org.

The Open Media Network is in beta (http://www.omn.org/)

And the podcasting world is taking over. Podcasting is as close to pirate radio on the internet as anything I've seen or heard of. A local company called clickcaster (www.clickcaster.com) is developing software for this. Adam Curry's making it real with www.podshow.com and a company called Odeo (www.odeo.com) is making something as off in Silicon Valley.

There's even a station (AM) in San Fransisco that's going to do all podcasts submitted by listeners. Now THAT'S Pirate radio, with a license. They're calling them selves 'KYOURradio - Open Source Radio at: www.kyourradio.com

The world is a changing folks. A transmitter isn't even required anymore to have a voice.

Of course, it would be nice, but, no longer required.
