At IMA in Seattle

I am here at the Integrated Media Conference for Public Radio taking place in Seattle. Jeff Hansen and I headed over to his station KUOW on the University of Washington campus (well, pretty close to it) to watch a live airing of Radio OpenSource with Chris Lydon. The taping was great, and I had a chance to talk to Chris as well as Robert Scoble afterwards.

I have always enjoyed Chris Lydon since I met him in a chance encounter at the NextMedia conference in PEI almost 4 years ago.

The conference itself is very much a conference, but the message behind it is an important one for Public Radio, and we are all glad to see the conversation really getting started, what we hate to see is a competition starting at the same time. Competition and conversation don’t work very well together.
