why not international hacker radio network, connecting all public and 
private hackerspaces?


--who here wants to generate some hacker audio content for a hacker 
radio segment, even just once? show of hands....? This is the most 
important thing.

--who here would take the lead on organizing the project?

--who here would listen? how many hours per month/week would you tune-in 
to hacker-radio?

--who feels it should be a wireless hyper-local broadcast vs. internet 

--what kinds of content would people like to make? personally, i think 
hacker-radio programming should be hackery. which could mean a few things:
         -shows about hacking, making, building
         -audio instructables
         -shows about how to patent, market, and sell inventions
         -shows about how patents, marketing, and selling are evil
         -shows about censorship, freedom of information, surveillance, etc
         -radio-hacking, meaning shows which experiment with the medium 
of audio communication
         -info broadcast in the form of modem noises or other audio-encoding
         -music performed on built, hacked, coded, and hand-wired 

--what i personally think would NOT be hackery is:
          --published, commercial music, or any music played on 
non-hacked instruments (unless it's just background music for a 
spoken-word segment).
         --general political activist stuff. There are already many 
radio outlets for that, such as indymedia.org 
<http://www.indymedia.org/or/index.shtml>, KPFA, etc etc. We're hackers! 
Of course, one's definition of "hacking" can be very broad....

please see more stuff below:

i think a 30-minute segment per month is a realistic starting goal. 
(keep in mind those Burning Man stations are only on-the-air for one 
week per year.)

ha, thanks Gio.

But credit is due to NORMAN for inspiring us. Thanks, Norman! (Norm, if 
you still feel NB should pursue a federally-licensed FM station, don't 
let me stop you).

also, i could not personally organize a hacker radio show or network. 
too busy. but i would gladly contribute suggestions and audio content. 
How about you guys, Gio and Norman?
