A new voice on Future Tense

Posted: 04/30/10 09:30 AM

After 14 years, I’m stepping away from Future Tense. You’ll hear new host John Moe starting Monday, May 3.

I won’t be going far. I’m the new social media / mobile editor for Minnesota Public Radio News. You can catch my work on Facebook and Twitter, and lots of other places. See you online…

Study: Liberal blogs more participatory, conservative more hierarchical

Posted: 04/29/10 09:51 PM

A new study of the political blogosphere by researchers at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society finds conservative blogs are more likely to employ hierarchical structures that highlight the work of one author, and include limited community participation. Liberal blogs, by contrast, are more likely to be participatory, and include more calls to political action.

What will we do with all this "white space"?

09/26/10 11:15 AM

There’s a vote coming up this week in Washington that will have a big impact on how you use the internet, what’s available to you, how much faster you’ll be able to get things online. On Thursday, the FCC is expected to open up unused parts of the broadcast spectrum, a lot of people call it “white space”. This is space that was positioned to be something of a buffer between television stations but such padding is proving less essential since the conversion to digital TV.

On today’s show, we talk to Glenn Fleishman from Wi-Fi Networking News and The Economist about how the spectrum works and what kind of new space we’re talking about. We also check in with Tim Wu from Columbia Law School about the companies that will look to use the space and what it all might mean for you and me as internet consumers.
