Media Network(s)

My friend Andy at Radio Netherlands has started up a new blog devoted to covering interesting news about the media, provoked by the speed with which things are developing in the Iraq war. The name Media Network was used for a long-running radio program (originally about shortwave radio, later expanded to cover all media) that Andy contributed to that went off the air a few years ago. The name has lived on in a section of the Radio Netherlands web site that covers media news and serves as the successor to the much-loved radio program. But things are moving so fast and changing so quickly lately that if anything happened outside regular working hours, they couldn't update the site. Hence the new blog. Nice to see the classic name applied to it. (Found via a post by Richard Cuff to the swprograms mailing list.)

Incidentally, this blog shouldn't be confused with Lou Josephs' blog, which also has the same name. Lou has also been a contributor to the Radio Netherlands radio program and now web site for a long time, although his site doesn't have any official connection with the station.

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio
