Tonight on Point and Click Radio: Apple's Mighty Mouse, the Top Five Email Annoyances, and an Interview with a Copyfighter

I'm hosting another edition of Point and Click Radio radio tonight on our local public radio station, and it's going to be an interesting show.

I'll start off with a round-up of the week's news, including a segment on Apple's new Mighty Mouse (which Macworld likes and PC World isn't so fond of).

In our second half hour, we'll talk electronic activism. This month marks the fifteenth anniversary of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which has been involved in everything from privacy issues to the much-despised Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

My guest will be Derek Slater. He's an activist intern with the EFF and a fellow at the Harvard Law School-based Berkman Center for Internet and Society. He's also a self-described copyfighter, working to flesh out the "the future of copyright with respect to the Internet and digital media."

Point and Click Radio airs at 7 pm Pacific time on KZYX and KZYZ. We also webcast live via RealAudio; you can tune in by visiting the Listen Now page. And if you can't bear the RealPlayer or won't be awake at 7 pm Pacific, fret not. A downloadable MP3 archive of the show will be available by the end of the week.

Tune in!
