Greetings Fine Media Makers,

NPR and our JUNE meetup:
Big thanks to guru media maker at National Public Radio – Andy Carvin – for hosting us.

DC Media Makers and you:
When it comes to making media, DC Media Makers’ preferred MO is “have fun, learn, create, share, repeat.”

So are you passionately interested in all things digital education i.e. online video, podcasts, mobile blogging, screencasting, and more?

If so – don’t walk but RUN to join in.

No matter what your level of experience with digital tech or media, there’s a place for you here. Share a favorite online video clip from your personal or professional portfolio or a new editing software or other production tips or a new project idea.

Bottom line:
DC Media Makers is the ‘big tent’ for peer learning and promoting digital literacy in DC.

Presenters for our next meetup (…they’re great!):

1.) Lucas Cioffi with http://www.DeepDebate.org

Passionate about ideas, Lucas and team are exploring new ways to improve online conversations. In order to do this, they’ve built a framework which makes it easier for a very large number of people to create a structured conversation.

2.) Adam Bonnifield with http://www.Contribune.org

Contribune enables users to post all kinds of content — including news items, videos, and journal entries. Then it lets you aggregate and filter the stories that motivate people most, based on which stories actually lead people to donate, sign petitions, volunteer or complete other custom conversion activities.

3.) Speaker pending (hopefully to be announced soon!)


To present at meetups – (casual style, we’re not anal) – please comment below or contact Jill Foster directly to share your professional or personal digital tech project (and the tools you’re using too!) with the group.
