Open Comms

I've been home sick the last two days and have been watching a lot of TV while I lay on the couch. Yesterday I watched "Pump up the Volume" for the first time since it came out on video. If you haven't seen it, it is from 1990 and Christian Slater is a high school student who causes problems for the school by starting a pirate radio station. Being in high school myself when the movie came out, I enjoyed reminiscing while watching it, I couldn't help realizing how the movie did not stand the test of time. Seriously, a pirate radio station! Nowadays one can just get a free account on Podbean or one of a hundred providers and start a podcast. Or create a blog like this one if you desire. The boundaries to creating communications today are down to almost zero.
