(1) For a change, WTTW Channel 11 will actually be discussing something of local importance -- namely, the campaign to save Senn High School. Watch Channel 11 tonight, November 30, starting at 7pm.

(2) Corporate media titans are running around with their pants around their knees. First, Big Media was long-rumored to appeal the June ruling against the FCC's media ownership rules. Now, Big Media is asking for and just got a 30-day extension. The delay is likely due to Big Media thinking that an appeal might not be in their best interests -- given the changes of technology and their business models not keeping up, not to mention their flawed logic that led to their bodyslam in June.

(3) There's a campaign to bring hi-speed municipal broadband access to the suburbs of Chicago to bring, much like a similar campaign to save municipal broadband in Philadelphia.
