These ISP's will also be allowed to charge fees to websites and online services for faster and more reliable network access. We will discuss the ramifications of this, in particular for artists, non-profits and other small-scale producers of online content.</p> <p>To sweeten this rather sobering topic for our final show for 2017, I am including some musical selections from my picks for the top 10 albums and songs for the year. Please join us for this live interview in a bustling downtown cafe surrounded by people sipping lattes, talking and playing with their phones, laptops and other devices.We close out this year by looking ahead to the challenges of 2018 for WPKN, creative artists and all who use the internet.</p> <p>featuring music by Iggy Pop, Wolf Alice, Ezra Furman and Nadine Shah.</p> https://archives.wpkn.org/https://archives.wpkn.org/bookmarks/listen/208941 Sat, 30 Dec 2017 11:00:00 GMT
