Did you happen to catch C-SPAN‘s "Washington Journal" Tues morning? Yes, that was NCTA vp Mark Bell appearing live via Webcam from the main branch of the New Orleans public library to chat up the CableCares initiative. Later in the morning, C-SPAN delivered 1300 non-fiction, public policy books on behalf of C-SPAN 2‘s "Book TV" and the cable industry. Remember to bring those books and videos to the Cable Show next week. Cash donations are also accepted, or you can buy a book from the on-site Barnes & Noble bookstore that will set up shop in the Convention Center lobby. The bookseller will donate a portion of proceeds back to the CableCares program. Cable in the Classroom and its partners are collecting titles for more than 60 New Orleans schools. If you aren’t headed to N’awlins, you can donate an entire classroom set by visiting: http://2008.thecableshow.com/CableCares/Libraries.aspx.
