Granted, there may not be that many FCC hearings people around the world are dying to listen to. But today's hearing in Cambridge, Mass., on Comcast's throttling of upstream BitTorrent traffic is sure to be an exception. Orgs like FreePress are promoting their participation in the hearing and encouraging supporters to tune in at http://www.fcc.gov/realaudio/#feb25 That page, however, contains this notice:

Our media server is configured to support up to 200 simultaneous Internet users. Your RealPlayer will display a message indicating that the capacity has been reached whenever you attempt to access the webcast while there are already 200 or more other users accessing the webcast.
Real? 200 streams? Has this been upgraded since 1998? So much for meaningful public access over the Internet. Perhaps some helpful person will capture and upload after the fact.
