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.
