This week's episode of Open Views is a re-broadcast of a talk from Cory Doctorow's Fulbright Chair Speaker Series, from the Center for Public Diplomacy. The talk features John Perry Barlow and John Gilmore, founders of the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
In the world of hacker culture, and by association, the open source and free culture movements, the most important official group is probably the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). This is the group that works to protect your digital civil liberties no matter where in the world you are. The EFF is ostensibly an American organization. Their focus on the Internet, however, makes them quite universal.
This Saturday we'll have generations of A Fistful of Dallers' music. The first KRUU live feed from Café Paradiso, 8-10pm, (see James' recent post), will feature Adrien Daller singing accompanied by her brother Dain Daller on synthesized tracks, and by me, Doug Daller on piano.
Then my KRUU show, A Fistful of Daller's, 10-12pm, will feature the history of rock 'n' roll in the Daller family. My oldest brother, Bill Daller, will bring in his collection of the first 45 records in the Daller household. This, and AM radio in Detroit, is how my brothers and I got introduced to rock 'n' roll when it first began in the early 1950's.
