Syndicates Shows
(In addition to the previous mails )
After hearing 635 Dismal Science:: Cloudy Predictions I was reminded that
the speech Freedom In the Cloud: Software Freedom, Privacy, and Security for
Web 2.0 and Cloud
A Speech given by Eben Moglen at a meeting of the Internet Society's New
York branch on Feb 5, 2010 would be ideal for HPR. Then Fifty OneFifty
emailed to say "I noticed there hadn't been any recordings from LUG meetings
in a while. I thought you might want to ask for submissions where meetings
or talks (from various fests) are already recorded." With the scheduling
rules as they are at the moment, the syndicated don't ever get played.

   1. Time critical
   2. Scheduled Slots
   3. New Hosts
   4. HPR Content on a First in First Out basis.
   5. Syndicated shows on a First in First Out basis.

On the other side I've had comments that the "Flood Gates" had been opened
on the HPR feed.

So thinking about it I was thinking of reserving Tuesday and Thursday for
syndicated shows, LUG talks, Speeches and the like. Feedback to the mailing
