This is a feature cast.
In the intro a heart felt thank you to my good friend, Chris Miller, for his support and advice without which my recent experience at Balticon would not have been anywhere near as phenomenal.
There is no listener feedback this week. There is also no hacker word of the week due to the length of the feature.
The feature this week is the recording of the Peer Media vs. Broadcast Media panel at Balticon 43. I was joined by Earl Newton, Dave Slusher and Patrick McLean all of whom I owe a debt of gratitude for this great discussion. For clarification, the book Patrick mentions is “Against Intellectual Monopoly” by Michele Boldrin and David Levine. Patrick also sent me a link to an interview with Boldrin which led me to the web site, Against Monopoly, which furthers the discussion with contributions from several other scholars.
