NPR and our January 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.

What’s up for our next meetup:
A few folks will share their cool media projects-in-motion, including:

Gabriela Schneider, Sunlight Foundation

Jill Foster on public presentations, tech, & your opinion

And you?

…it’s casual sharing yet with enthusiasm at the core. So share with us what you’re creating with digital tech.

And remember our feedback community:

–Do you want feedback on any particular media project or concept on your mind? We’re glad to listen and offer suggestions in that frank yet friendly way.

Will there be snacks?
…likely!
