Probably one of the rare instances that I go with the liberal, but you never mess with the 1st Amendment. It is too precious of a gift from our forefathers!

Librarians Win as U.S. Relents on Secrecy Law‘ —’ After fighting ferociously for months, federal prosecutors relented yesterday and agreed to allow a Connecticut library group to identify itself as the recipient of a secret F.B.I. demand for records in a counterterrorism investigation.

There is a running theme. The Internet is the media and the technology has caught up to make it simple to create business models. And now established companies are comfortable experimenting in front of their customers in this media and maybe making mistakes.

USATODAY.com – Ad money lures established media into uncharted waters: “So, really, it all adds up to a tipping point or strategic inflection point or that moment when the coffee starts perking, if anybody can remember when coffee actually perked. The established industry has come to feel safe experimenting online. Ad sales have mushroomed. Technology has made experimentation cheap and easy. And a sense of fear — of not wanting to get Napstered all over again — has created urgency.”
