ok,

So we are beginning to see the fall of Facebook... it's going to be a slow moving disaster, but the foundation is crumbling, and this baby is coming down...

Now we need to address copyright.

When I started playing around with the idea of a radio station last week, I thought CC artists, because I can't afford a licsense... now I am faced with how many high quality artist are in CC licensing frameworks...

hackers.town:2600 is going to stand for the future that was lost.

As in all things we are going to restore the future. In this case, this means supporting only artists that release content in CC as they are taking risks and have skin in the game of bringing about the future we were once promised... with their art and their work.

You have my respect and dedication.

@phryk @TheGibson I used to drop pronobozo new releases on my show back when I ran my radio station! Used to hang out in our irc and shit, righteous cat.

@phryk @TheGibson we pretty much guaranteed that almost everyone playing The Matrix Online knew Full Flex with how much playtime that track ended up getting

@djsundog

Yeah, was really open about me mirroring their stuff on the archive and my own site. :)

@thegibson

@phryk @TheGibson used to be totally engaged with our listeners, really chill and fun and glad people dug the tracks

@djsundog @thegibson

I'm still waiting for the new album to drop, was slated to be released in 2018, but that obviously didn't happen. Can't wait to hear how they developed since 2013. :3

@djsundog @thegibson

You can contact them on the birdsite, that's where I asked how they felt about mirroring, too. ;)

@phryk @TheGibson dusted off my birdsona long enough to send 'em a note - we'll see how it goes ;)

@thegibson serious question here.. how do you envision these artists supporting themselves?

@thegibson because a lot of people think that artists should just give away their work for free. I mean for a programmer you can release some free stuff on github and it helps you get a job where people pay you to write code. Doesn't work that way for musicians. Being able to give away your labor for free is a privilege.

@intherain I don't believe that in the slightest.

I just don't have an answer yet.

If we were doing this commercially, I would offer up payment... but there is no revenue, and I am just trying to signal boost anybody who wants it.

@intherain @thegibson this. It's the same with programmers in the sense that if it's something you can show it makes you more popular but doesn't pay directly. If you can have big part of you life devoted to releasing stuff for free, that's wonderful and how it should be but you're privileged.

@TheGibson One minor issue with the webpage, likely caused by using port 2600 and not the default that the service provider uses (8000)

The playlist it generates uses the wrong url for the actual stream: it gives

File1=hackers.town:8000/;

The URL where I got actual audio output was:

hackers.town:2600/;?type=http&nocache=28

@Truck

yeah, I see what you mean... I need to PAT the port, so we may have this issue no matter what we do... let me see if I can figure out a way to fix it.
