A Specter is haunting the low bankdwidth cybersphere-- the specter of the death of text.

Emptywheel at the Daily Kos tells me I must know what Arlen Specter said Friday and provides a link to video. My connection to cyberspace

is not up to streaming video.

I decided to browse the Congressional Record. 10 seconds to find it with google one minute to search it 2 minutes to remember he is Specter not Spector 2 minutes to go to browse and find the intollerable lag of one whole weekend before they put Friday's transcript on the web letting me see nothing sooner than Thursday.

This is intollerable. Why isn't the congressional record put on the web in real time ?
