The Film, D Tour, on Independent Lens, plus ISU Berlin World Cup Replay Package on Universal Sports Online

I have been out of touch for a few weeks after some long distance skating and the prep and skating and wrap (still ongoing) of our Roadskater.net team charity efforts. Last night was the awards dinner for the Tour to Tanglewood, and it was a transitional day for several reasons, all good. Then I came home wanting to get some computer work done and maybe watch some tele, mostly something meaningless and useless.

Watch Tour of California 2009 Bike Race Pro Cycling Live Free Internet GPS Maps Standings Finish Times Course Profiles

Yes it will be live on Vs. network, but I don't get that, having given up cable vision (though I still have cable internet, hoping to ditch that for fiber optic). It appears there'll be live video (at least one stream) plus gps tracking and timing and placement info on the tracker section of the official site... http://tracker.amgentourofcalifornia.com/ This article is about the technology used for the official tracker site...

Open Letter to UNC-TV Regarding Over-the-Air UNC-KD UNC-ED Public Television Broadcast Changes September 2008

I watch free TV, meaning I have an antenna (up in the attic no less, as I'm not sure I want to attract lightning, deal with installation woes, and risk the oak trees damaging the antenna when limbs land on the roof). I receive digital broadcasts, and don't pay for cable television (but do for internet). On good days I can get programming I would not get on cable, including broadcasts from Durham, Raleigh, Roanoke and more. Some days, however, I admit I have trouble getting WXII in Winston-Salem, or WUNC-TV from Chapel Hill or Winston-Salem.

Great Free Public Radio Website NPR PRI APR BBC CBC C-SPAN TV Podcasts

When you're on the road, or even at the local wifi spot, sometimes you can't get the radio programs you are used to. WABE is a fine radio station, but it drives me crazy not to have some of the great programs WUNC and WFDD offer during the middle of the day. And sometimes you might want to follow events in, say, Iowa or New Hampshire (bless your pitiful heart), or Britain or Canada. Maybe you just want to hear some music flavored with curry. Maybe you're silly enough to seek out C-SPAN live over iptv! Maybe you miss University of Michigan TV?

Well for some time I've relied on
