The room is filled with the collective anticipation of dozens of public media’s brightest, geekiest minds.
I’m blogging from Public Media Camp this weekend at American University in Washington, DC. The forward focused “unconferece” has brought together public media thinkers from around the country to seek out, sort out and figure out the promising future of publically supported media in the US.
Camp has been delayed an hour on account of an unanticipated bike race that has closed many of the roads, and the heavy rain, which will make that bike race extra exciting. So far its been name tags (name and twitter handle please), bagels and lovely strong coffee, that I am about to grab another cup of.
A quick disclaimer, I took the redeye here, arriving this morning. My spelling and punctuation are almost legendarily bad when I’m coherent, so please excuse any copy errors that follow as I move farther and farther from normal consciousness throughout the day. Its just another fun layer to my reportage from #pubcamp. Ooh, I almost forgot… If you care to follow all the public media action on twitter, you can search for the #pubcamp hashtag and get it all live, or just clic on the link to see it right away (thanks Apture).
