I’ve now been to two tweetups at WBUR, my local NPR news station. I’ve enjoyed each immensely, meeting new people, enjoying deep discussions about the place of social media in public radio and how the delivering the news is changing.
I’d meant to write both experiences up but had necessarily pushed that effort down the list of priorities. Earlier today, I noticed that Chris Brogan had posted about the WBUR tweetup on his blog and had mentioned me. Once I was at the post, I found myself writing a long comment. Chris decided to make the comment its own post, Alex Howard on Public Radio, and published it.
Needless to say, I was surprised and deeply complimented. I’d been thinking about how social media and public radio might relate since the last tweetup; this response reflected many of those musings. Thanks for giving those thoughts a platform, Chris.
