Hi Mom! I'm on PBS!

Posted By on Thu, Sep 22, 2005 at 6:29 PM

It's been a slow blogging day here at 802 because I spent the afternoon in 518. The producers of a Mountain Lake PBS show called "Business Affairs" invited me to take part in a roundtable discussion today about broadband internet. I'm told it's on tonight at 8. Not sure when else, or if they'll even replay it.

I was on with three very cordial men, all older than me — the host, Bill Owens, a reporter from Montreal, and a reporter from Plattsburgh. I had fun talking with them, and was interested in the report they prepared to air before our chat. The Plattsburgh area is apparently considering setting up a network like Burlington Telecom's. In the pre-roundtable report, they interviewed Tim Nulty, who talked about what he's doing here. He actually said a lot of the same things to them that he did to me, in the article I wrote last May.

I'm not sure how informative the resulting program will be — I suspect that my fellow conversation partners are not exactly early adopters — but like I said, it was fun. And I hadn't heard about the Plattsburgh project before. I'll have to look into it more carefully.

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!
