The most recent edition of the PBS show NOW featured two segments of interest to librarians. One is a feature on Net Neutrality and the second is an interview with George Christian, the librarian who had a gag order placed on him for refusing to comply with a Patriot Act demand for records. The site offers information on Christian and his battle against the gag order, video coverage of the ACLU’s press conference after the gag order was lifted, a poll on net neutrality, and a discussion area on the Patriot Act. NOW also has a new podcast feature where you can listen to the program.
