The Weekly SPI Debrief - September 30, 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.

Wanna become a member of the PBS Interactive Station Advisory Council (SAC) or nominate someone whom you believe would be an excellent candidate for the council? There are currently openings and we are looking to fill them with station smartness. 

For more information on the role of SAC members visit the SAC Charter in Station Remote Control (station login required). 

To nominate someone or nominate yourself visit:   
Nominations must be submitted by October 14th, before 5:00pm ET. 

This week on The SPI Files, we interviewed Jess Snyder, Web Systems Manager at WETA.  Jess has worked at WETA for over 9 years and recently had a hand in launching web features related to the Prohibition experience in the DC-area, including an interactive, make-your-own Prohibition-era WANTED poster. 

In our FYI Corner,  this week we bring you recommendations for a Social Media Handbook and Benchmarking Tools. Social media continues to fascinate us. We research it, study it, measure it, love it, and curse it. We still have a hard time figuring out the latest trends before something new comes along that we then need to research, study, measure, love and curse.

And finally, the THIRD Webinar in the Project VoiceScape Webinar Series will be Thursday, October 6,   12:00-1:00PM ET, The Best of Free: Share/Freeware Lightening Session. This series of five webinars introduces PBS stations and educators to the how and why of integrating youth media making into public media.

RSVP to Leslie Rule at   She'll provide the phone number for each webinar.  The registration link for each webinar is
