(When was the last time you BOUGHT a CD?). Btw, co-moderators are Andy Sternberg, director of Interactive, Live Earth (and LAist's news editor!), and Jackie Peters, founding partner, Heavybag Media.
9/11: We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the HAMMER Forum tonight at 7: “The War on Terror: Seven Years After 9/11.” Jonathan Turley, George Washington Law School professor, will ask if we are “retaliating against the 9/11 attacks by attacking our own freedom?” He’ll explore the effects on the Constitution and our civil liberties. The forum will be moderated by Ian Masters—journalist, commentator, author, screenwriter, documentary filmmaker, and the host of the radio program Background Briefing on KPFK 90.7FM.
