On Monday night, I'm cohosting the first of what we hope will become a weekly chat about public media 2.0. Karen Everhart of Current explains:
Public media advocates are experimenting with a new kind of forum: holding a live simultaneous chat using Twitter, the microblogging social network. The first chat is scheduled for Monday, Feb. 15, 2010, at 8 p.m. Eastern. To prepare, organizers are soliciting ideas for discussion via Twitter. Interested people can tweet their suggestions using the hashtag #pubmedia (and read others' ideas by searching for #pubmedia). To participate, follow @pubmedia for regular updates and to join the Feb. 15 chat. For the Twitter-averse, there are alternative channels: the blog PubMediaChat.org has a feed of the Twitter posts, takes comments and lets users subscribe to updates via e-mail or an RSS feed.
Hope to see you there!
