The Weekly Debrief, March 2, 2012

By Joy Loving, Station Products & Innovation 

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

This year's iMA conference will take place March 7-8, 2012, in conjunction with SXSW (March 9-18, 2012). With tightened travel budgets, PBSi is excited for this opportunity to learn and talk with stations. The SPIs will be tweeting and blogging to share some of the conference experience with those who can’t make it. If you are attending, be sure to stop by the Station Products & Innovation booth. 

This week, Joy Loving talks about her experience as a writer and the future of writers in a digital world. This blog post touches on the relationship between writers and public media. To read the entire post, follow the link below.
