The Air Staff of Erie Looking Productions regrets that illness continues to prevent the production and release of programming this week. In the meantime we offer a story aired on X Minus One called "A Logic Named Joe" courtesy the Internet Archive. You can directly download the audio of such here in MP3 format. The story's original text by Murray Leinster can be found here courtesy Baen Free Library.
Barring further disruption, we expect to return with normal programming on or near May 14, 2012.
Due to illness, the release of LISTen: An LISNews.org Program is delayed until at least the evening of Monday, May 7, 2012.
This week's episode of LISTen looks at Terms of Service in the social infrastructure operated by the private sector and contemplates consequences.

Due to unanticipated computer systems failure caused by either quite above average air temperatures or a software upgrade regression, LISTen: An LISNews.org Program will post later in the day on Monday, April 16, 2012. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
This week's episode is most definitely NOT an April Fool's Day prank like last week's. We discuss an operational matter about the possibility of a live show in the English community of Liverpool and go through a news miscellany.
