The Weekly SPI Debrief - September 23, 2011

By Marla Krueger, Station Products & Innovation 

Welcome to the Weekly PBS Interactive Station Products & Innovation Debrief, designed to give PBS stations a rundown of product updates and opportunities announced this week on our blog.

Prosper Portal usernames and passwords were issued this week to everyone who has confirmed their Portal Manager contact. If you have confirmed your station contact and have not received your username and password please contact .    

This week on The SPI Files,  we spoke with the incomparable Jessie Sampson, about her work as the Senior Associate for PBS Interactive and working directly with Senior Vice President of Product Development & Innovation, Jason Seiken.

Also this week, in Mobile Station Stories, we caught up with Lynne Pollard, Vice President of New Media, at Oregon Public Broadcasting and new grandmother. OPB has developed both an OPB News app and an OPB Music app for iPhone and Android; these apps offer live streams of radio content, feeds of local headlines and podcast subscription capability. They also manage the app for KMHD, the jazz radio station in Portland, Oregon.

In our FYI Corner this week we examine the importance of  COPPA (Children's Online Privacy Protection Act). At PBS one of primary demographics is children and is therefore, important that stations' online kids presence follows COPPA's guidelines. How can your station create kids modules that maintain a fun and safe online space? Follow the link below to learn more.  

Finally, PBS Interactive will have a presence at NETA 2011. If you’re in town, swing by and say hello at the PBS Interactive Station Products & Innovation booth or drop by a PBSi session.

As always, the SPI team appreciates all of your valuable comments and participation on our site this week and every week.
