New Media on Jim Lehrer News Hour

Today, at 3pm and 6pm PST on KQED.

I'm on the segment, with 3 others about 35 minutes after the hour. I just found out they are going to post it today. We shot it two weeks ago or so. I was in a little room, with an ear bud, only able to talk to the other people. I couldn't see any of them. There was a camera in front of me, and a camera man. I'm kind of nervous about this. I have no idea what sort of interaction that will produce. I tried to just watch the camera.

That was it. 13 minutes for a discussion, we were told. They shut off the ear bud talk and I was done.

I talked about how new media, rich media, online programming and how that is the real disruptor of traditional media. I'm working on an essay for that now. Will publish it here.

So.. stay tuned to PBS if you are interested. And I'll update here with a link to the online version as it goes up.

Jeffrey Brown moderated and the others on the show included:
Adam Clayton Powell III of USC
Mark Jerkowicz, Project for Excellence in Journalism
Nick Lemann, a New Yorker columnist and of Columbia University

Update: i just watched and i'm so relieved that i didn't look funny or sound too geeky. cool.

Another update: transcript is here (my new new year's resolution is to stop saying "you know" when I'm nervous.

And video is here: Part 1 and Part 2.

caught you last night, too, Mary. and you were great--cut right thru the b.s. and to the heart of the matter (and without offending the Establishment) :-)

Mary, great job! Did you get my screenshots?

Hi Chris,
Not only did my email software (ctyme.com) prevent your screen shots from coming through, but it also prevented the email notification of your comment on napsterization. Ugg.. the new spam thing is such a pain.

Anyway.. i'll have to get it from you later.
