TheShu links to a BlogAds announcement about local blogging ad networks. Roch was talking to Henry Copeland about this at the Triangle blog con, don't know if anything came of it. But I guess we'll find out.

Downloadable electronic version of the University of Missouri paper. USA Today quotes lots of folks saying it's great. Hmm. Why? Marginal benefit to readers from formatted pages. And if it allows a paper to ship ads along with content, it makes business sense.

Sam Hieb went to the archives and read the N&R's early coverage of the St. James mess. Worth a look.

Roch says public access TV is showing some scary stuff. Yes, scarier than the usual stuff. "Homosexuals are 'supposed to be killed.' That was the message aired on GCTV, Greensboro's public access channel cable 8, on Sunday night."

Is that a threat of violence, as Roch says?

Back in the realm of merely scary stuff on GCTV, I could watch this guy for hours. And he's local, too.
