The usual CNET Buzz Out Loud podcast crew is operating at reduced capacity this week. Molly Wood and Jason Howell are out; only Tom Merritt is in the office. He's too chicken to do the podcast all alone, so he roped me in. Normally, I wouldn't blog a BOL guest appearance, but today we spent a good amount of the podcast discussing Web-related issues, including American Airlines' attack on Google, the Skype outage, Comcast's sabotage of BitTorrent transfers, Japan's drive to build a replacement Internet, and a guaranteed net-neutral ISP, Copowi.
Give it a listen. And if you can stand it, feel free to tune in during the rest of the week, too.
