LISTen: An LISNews.org Program -- Episode #166

Programming Advisory

NOTICE

Erie Looking Productions will not release new programming this weekend in light of Hurricane Irene's impending approach to the eastern coast of North America.

The potential for systems disruption impacting such a large portion of the United States population is something we must bear in mind. We remember the lessons of the 2003 regional outage that included us in an outage area that encompassed much of the northeastern United States as well as a major portion of the Province of Ontario. In light of recent local electricity reliability issues, we are preparing for the possibility of outages impacting us.

New episodes of LISTen: An LISNews.org Program and Ubuntu Ohio – Burning Circle are tentatively scheduled for release on September 5th, 2011.

2011 Summer Hiatus

It seems that LISTen: An LISNews.org Program will take a couple weeks off to tend to local politics.

As noted above in a notice posted to Identica, LISTen: An LISNews.org Program is going to be taking a couple weeks off. There are some matters of local government politics that the air staff will be tending to. There is a ballot access deadline coming up and we want to do what we can to help a particular local matter onto the ballot before then.

Barring unforeseen consequences, LISTen: An LISNews.org Program will return to air on 8 August 2011.
