Hey kids, you know what frequency modulation radio is, don’t you? It’s like the Internet without pictures (but WITH multipath). On Tuesday, December 16th at 9:00 AM, tune into KQED-FM 88.5 to listen to Adam Jackson’s sad tale concerning the Adam’s Block website.
“When Adam Jackson pointed a web cam outside his apartment in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood, he says he just wanted to let his parents and friends see the crime and hear the noise that was keeping him up at night. But his website became a sensation, attracting national attention. In the first half hour, Jackson joins us to talk about the experience — and about why he shut down the site last week.”

Bonus! When Adam’s bit ends at 9:30 AM, Craig Newmark (he was like the Adam Jackson of the 1990′s) will come on to discuss the following:
“In the second half hour, we talk with Craigslist founder Craig Newmark. President-elect Barack Obama’s platform calls for a “Craigslist for service” that would “leverage technology to increase awareness of and participation in service opportunities.” Newmark joins us to share his vision for using technology to expand civic engagement.”
UPDATE: it turns out Adam got bumped by some breaking news having to do with Obama. Oh noes! But rescheduling appears to in the offing. Stayed tuned…
