Howdy all! For about a year now I've been on the Benton Foundation's
listserv. As a subscriber, I get weekly (sometimes bi- and tri-weekly)
capsule headlines and story synopses from the national press dealing with
issues related to telecommunications policy (broadly defined): e.g.:

Airwaves Auctions May Hurt Military, GAO Report Says

FCC Is Turned Back in Plan to Reimburse Pay-Phone Operators

Clinton Minimize Internet Regulation, Seeks Free-Trade Zone Status for
the Web

Clinton Calls A Summit on Internet Smut

Library calls police about man viewing nude boys on Internet

As Reelections Curtain Time Nears, Senator From New York Changes Tune on NEA

Area Commuters Take Traffic Information Service for a Spin

At our VRT meeting in SF, I offered to extract the most relevant (to
media librarians) pieces and forward them on to the list. What I would
like to know is whether this would be of interest to the collective group.
Please take a minute and email me (NOT NOT NOT the videolib list) and let
me know if this is something you feel would be worthwhile. I'll use a
simple majority of votes to determine whether or not to proceed...
