About this Series

How are public media makers and outlets evolving in the digital, participatory age? Stories in this week’s special package examine how various players are rising to this challenge, from public stations, to community access projects, to citizen journalists. MediaShift contributors will report back from this weekend’s national Public Media Camp in D.C., where developers and community members will join public broadcasting staffers to brainstorm digital projects and engagement strategies. Kim Fox of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation will offer crowdsourcing and citizen journalism lessons learned from its coverage of the G20. And we’ll take a look at what viral public broadcasting spoofs tell us about what still needs work.
