Whatever Happened To Kristin Calhoun?
A conversation with the new Executive Director of the Public Media Platform
Q: Kristin! You don’t call, you don’t write, what’s been happening with you since you left the super awesome SPI team?
A: SPIs! I do miss you, but I’ve been having lots of fun at my new Public Media Platform gig. I’ve been learning about
How to run a Board Meeting:
And how to set up an all in one copy/fax/print/scanner!
Q: Wow, we’re jealous. What’s up next for you and the Public Media Platform?
A: The PMP partners and I have been working hard to establish the PMP. Work has begun on the PMP API. NPR is building this new API and they’re using the existing NPR Story API as a starting point. The PMP API is like its engine and, once in place, rights management and business rule layers will be added to it.
Q: Kind of like a cake?
A: No, but it will be sweet!
Q: Does the PMP like the Bento B.I.T. Robot?
A: Like B.I.T.? Of course! The PMP's even going to be able to talk it's language, so if you're using Bento, you'll be able to easily search/surface content available via the PMP (and share your content via the PMP if you so chose). It's that easy.
Q: We’d like some cake..
A: That is not a question, but how about this – we’re holding a system wide webinar about the Public Media Platform next Tuesday (March 19th) at 4pm ET. Here are the deets:
