This is news cast 94.

My DSL is out, again, so apologies if this adversely affects publishing of the show. Another reminder that BaltiCon 41 is fast approaching, May 25th through the 28th. Also, if your are curious, I’ve submitted an entry for the Public Radio Talent Quest. And finally in the intro, I spare a moment of silence for the double tragedy of VT and JSC this past week.

The news this week includes a teen pranking YouTube into taking down someone else’s content, caught in a maelstrom of infringement claims YouTube is finally rolling out an automated system to deal with it all, Microsoft announces a putative response to the OLPC project, and Thunderbird 2.0 and Ubuntu 7.0.4 (Feisty Fawn) were releases this past week.

I am happy to follow up on Jamendo, a DRM-free, CC friendly music service who announced a new discovery feature where you can search for music based on main stream artists. Ending on a negative note, protests of the CRB’s new higher webcasting royalty rates have come to naught.
