And I don't think these societal systems are overseen by the ABA,
either. could that have something to do with the mind set that is
operating as well? You put a 'new' technology in the policy basket of the
broadcast "regulator" (sic) [or sick, whatever one's personal reaction to
the ABA and David Flint], and you're going to get similar constructs and
ways of thinking about that new technology.
Just thought I'd raise that as a wee addition to Robin's post.
