Thinking Beyond Broadcast


I'm in Los Angeles attending the Beyond Broadcast 2009 conference at USC Annenberg School of Communication. I had a chance to learn more about the school yesterday and see how the broadcast and multimedia programs work at the school. Today I'm looking forward to learning more about how others use new media to reach the public.

The highlight so far was enjoying the opening keynote speech from Henry Jenkins. He spoke about his definition of "civic media" and the changing media landscape. I enjoyed hearing what he had to say about the changing directions of citizen journalism and public media. I took away many thoughts and ideas I've had but may not have fully verbalized. I look forward to even more great conversations and ideas to develop across the next two days!
