Wandered into a press conference
Friday, May 18, 2007 by Dave Winer.
It was hard to find a place to sit down to eat lunch, wandering around I saw an open door in a room with some tables and an empty chair. Turns out it was a press conference announcing a movement to draft a "tech president." I sat down, asked if it was okay, started eating my lunch and listened.
Will something come of this? Well, there are a lot of industries that want to see the US networks for computers and cell phones to stay in the 20th Century. The cable and entertainment industries are scared of access being a free or relatively free thing.
