I have been reminded to let this forum know when 3RRR's Byte Into It
<URL:http://www.rrr.org.au/program/byte-into-it/> features discussions
of interest to free software advocates.
On Wednesday 2012-05-30, the show included discussion about ownCloud
<URL:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OwnCloud>, its latest release
<URL:http://owncloud.org/owncloud-4-release-annoucement/>, and further
exploring how software freedom is affected by cloud computing.
We had an interview with Senator Scott Ludlum. He is a Greens senator
who has been vocal about the need for Australian federal government to
protect the legal rights of Julian Assange, whose extradition hearing
was yesterday – yet Assange wasn't even in the court for any of it!
(Rallies this afternoon have been arranged around the world, including
in Melbourne <URL:http://justice4assange.com/Action.html>.)
We also talked about the resurrection of the Internet Underground Music
Archive, by scraping the web to find traces of it – which couldn't be
done if people respected current copyright restrictions.
