Take the Radio & Tech Survey to help us connect on your terms
(PD)

There have never been so many exciting ways to connect with your favorite sources of news, music, and entertainment. But the pace of technological change and the sheer number of options can be distracting and overwhelming. Whether you're an eager early adopter, or you prefer radio the way you've always listened, your feedback is crucial in helping us cut through the noise and meet you on your terms. Take the media & technology survey to help us understand what these rapid technological changes in the media landscape mean to you.

Have coffee with NPR's David Greene — he'll be hosting Morning Edition live from the Feed Cafe in Bozeman tomorrow. And you are invited to be there — the only catch is it starts at 3:00 a.m. The side benefit is it's totally cool to wear your pajamas.

We just heard Senator Jon Tester will be there too, after 4:00 a.m.

We just received this dispatch from the Society of North American Cats & Kittens. It can mean only one thing: Pet Wars is coming. Keep your radio on, your lint-brush handy, and your shoelaces off the ground, because these cats are on the prowl.
