Notes from the Electronic Cottage 12/15/22: December 2022 Headlines

Producer/Host: Jim Campbell

It is the season of Ho Ho Ho! While we do not enjoy being Grinches, we still feel it’s important to look at some current tech headlines as well as cheery holiday gift hints. So, for better or worse, here are a few things of import that might have gotten lost in the the holiday media punch bowl.

Here is a link to the article from The Markup mentioned in today’s program

About the host:
Jim Campbell has a longstanding interest in the intersection of digital technology, law, and public policy and how they affect our daily lives in our increasingly digital world. He has banged around non-commercial radio for decades and, in the little known facts department (that should probably stay that way), he was one of the readers voicing Richard Nixon’s words when NPR broadcast the entire transcript of the Watergate tapes. Like several other current WERU volunteers, he was at the station’s sign-on party on May 1, 1988 and has been a volunteer ever since doing an early stint as a Morning Maine host, and later producing WERU program series including Northern Lights, Conversations on Science and Society, Sound Portrait of the Artist, Selections from the Camden Conference, others that will probably come to him after this is is posted, and, of course, Notes from the Electronic Cottage.
