Recently I was interviewed by Stephen Feller from NewsForge. The interview focused mostly on the new site that my client/previous employer North Country Public Radio recently put up with my assistance, PubForge.org. NewsForge published the article yesterday.

NewsForge logoAs it is noted on the PubForge site, "PubForge is maintained by North Country Public Radio in Canton NY as a free resource for the public broadcasting community". Basically we wanted to put up a space to offer and demonstrate Public Media Manager, when it occurred to us that we could use the domain name we had registered a while back as a new home for not only that project but also any other open source project for public broadcasting.

I guess Dale Hobson (my once partner in all things NCPR-web) talked it up a bit at the Integrated Media Conference, which Stephen Feller happened to attend. There was apparently a fair bit of interest in such an endeavor, so this looks good for PMM-CMS as well as PubForge.

It will be interesting to see what happens with PubForge as time goes on. This is especially true as we begin to discuss a new project with the Integrated Media Association, in which we will build a new website intended to provide "A True Community Resource" (check out my suggested project scope posted at the IMA web site).

You see, the IMA project will likely also offer some sort of mechanism for sharing open source projects. Will this make PubForge obsolete? I hope not. My preference would be to see this and other projects in pubcasting/new media land cooperate rather than compete. There must be a way for us to work both independantly and as a team.

In any case, the article at NewsForge talked about how we started working on content management back in 2000 as a result of our need to get every news item NCPR ever produces online somehow, and the resulting 7,000-plus news stories that are now archived there (almost six years later).

It also talks a bit about some of our thoughts on building a community within the pubcasting system. Can this be done? I think so. In fact, I think if we get over some of the initial humps and obstacles that seem to be mostly coming from folks who don't want to lose their independance, we'll have one of the strongest media communities online.
