For the record, Lydon’s not bolting from Open Source and Open Source isn’t bolting from public radio. As many of you know, since UMass Lowell stopped funding Open Source at the end of the year, we’ve been talking with lots of possible partners and underwriters. We’ll keep you posted.
Chris emailed us a story from The San Jose Mercury News last night, describing a dinner David Halberstam attended the night before he died. He was with writer Mark Danner, Orville Schell, dean of Berkeley’s graduate school of journalism, and writer and NPR documentarian Sandy Tolan. The story said they closed down Chez Panisse in Berkeley discussing the similarities between the Vietnam War and the current quagmire in Iraq. “No one wanted to leave,” Schell recalled. “It was kind of like the last supper.”
We’re planning to remember Halberstam tonight and continue the dinner party conversation with Schell, Danner and Tolan. Any questions for them?
