Rebel Radio

If we suck it’s your fault

By Captain America

What a jackass. Me, I mean.

A warm autumn evening, 1996. I was sitting on the front porch of the venerable Stanford House, home and hangout to various musicians from Word Salad, Logical Nonsense and Hell Hath No Fury. We were waiting for some Green Party mayoral candidate. “We” being the collective nonentity known as Rebel Radio, comprised of various activists, anarchists, musicians, freaks and weirdos.

Public Hearing on the Future of the Internet

By Marisa Demarco [ Tue Nov 16 2010 7:00 AM ]

Federal Communications Commissioner Michael Copps is coming to Albuquerque to hear from citizens about Internet access and net neutrality. Web freedom fighters argue that government and Internet service providers should not restrict access and speed. Opponents of net neutrality say companies should be allowed to develop tiers of access and to direct traffic away from competitors in the interest of progress. Congress, through inaction, has left the topic in the hands of the FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, according to Washington Post reporter Rob Pegoraro. So now is the time to speak up. Today’s hearing AT 6:30 P.M. at the National Hispanic Cultural Center (1701 Fourth Street SW) is presented by the New Mexico Media Literacy Project, Free Press and the Center for Media Justice. RSVP and find more info on Internet freedom at savetheinternet.com/abqhearing.
