For a few months I've been volunteering with a human rights radio show
(called, of all things, "The Human Rights Show"). For the past 2
months, roughly, every other broadcast of the show has been assembled
by myself using only open source software---including, of course,
NetBSD. The show airs once a week at 10am (U.S. Central time),
The most recent show that was put together with NetBSD, airing on
January 12 can be downloaded from:
...at a radiostation archive.
KPFT, the radio station, keeps these archives for download for
4 weeks. You can also get the stream "live" from http://www.kpft.org/
via MP3. (We'll be pre-empted for Condoleza Rice's confirmation hearings
this week; a few weeks after that, we'll be doing a fund drive for
the station (2 weeks, 4 times a year).)
NetBSD is not used by the radio station itself.
So, there you go. NetBSD is being used to prepare a broadcast
radio show and is trying to do something for human rights.
That's 2 for 1, which balances the fact that it's only used for
half the shows. (^&
