Today's Save-the-Times-Picayune rally in New Orleans is another in a series of efforts to draw attention to the plight of the city's paper. Advance Publications announced it will publish the print edition only three days a week starting this fall and will focus more effort on its online site.

A big issue in the broadband debate is whether companies are delivering on their promises when it comes to connection speeds. Ookla, the Seattle-based technology company that I wrote about earlier this week regarding value, looked at this issue as well.
The results in the U.S. were surprisingly good. The survey shows that actual speeds were 93.02 percent of promised speeds in the U.S., ranking the nation in 11th place. That’s based on 258,227 surveys nationwide.

"It’s not a good recipe for the survival of the media" if radio is the last remaining analog technology in the broadcast industry, said Bob Struble, president and CEO of iBiquity Digital Corp.
Struble was talking to reporter Mia Steinle about the future of digital radio for the Workshop's latest report. iBiquity is the company that licenses the technology that allows stations to go digital.
It’s a sobering comment from the industry’s chief cheerleader. Only 14 percent of radio stations are broadcasting digital signals, according to a new Workshop investigation, and listenership amounts to only three-tenths ...
