The group, called the Analog Reconversion Discussion Group (ARDG -- pronounced "Argh!") is hewing to the secretive principles that kept the Broadcast Flag negotiation out of the public eye. The press may not attend its meetings or sit in on its phone calls. However, anyone not working for the press with $100 and a plane ticket to LAX may attend the meetings and report on their proceedings.
So EFF has started a new blog to chronicle the negotiation, called "Cruelty to Analog." The blog will be updated with reports from each of the ARDG's meetings, its draft documents and position papers -- all the news that's fit to blog. These people are engaged in a horse-trading exercise with your fair-use and free-speech rights. If you can't make it to LA for the monthly meeting, shouldn't you at least be keeping track of what they're doing to your rights? Link Discuss
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
