Gary Kebbel on “The Knight News Challenge and Digital Innovation”

QuickTime Video

Gary Kebbel, journalism program officer at the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, was the guest speaker this week at the Berkman Center’s Luncheon Series.

Kebbel’s presentation, entitled “The Knight News Challenge and Digital Innovation: Challenges Posed by Intellectual Property, International Giving, and Grant Administration” discussed the foundation’s grant program. Just ending its third year, the Knight News Challenge is a $25 million contest to find digital news innovations that are used to create community in a given geographic area. At Knight Foundation, Kebbel also helped create the Knight Citizen News Network and the Knight Digital Media Center.

The contest was recently revised to meet new and evolving goals, such as making grants to individuals in foreign countries or focusing the wisdom of the crowd on weak applications so that they could be strengthened and resubmitted. Additionally, $500,000 was set aside for the ideas of people 25-years-old and younger. These changes create new problems of grant administration, intellectual property and having a minor win a monetary award.

Berkman.tv Presents a Conversation with Jake Shapiro, Executive Director of PRX

QuickTime Video

Berkman.TV is back with its latest episode! This week Berkman’s managing director Colin Maclay discusses public media in the digital age with Public Radio Exchange‘s Jake Shapiro.

Together, they address the future of public broadcasting through the lens of the Beyond Broadcast conferences, demographics, business models, web interaction, and more. Jake also makes his prediction for the biggest news in public radio this year.

 

While Jake and Colin discuss the needs and challenges of the public broadcasting industry, Doc Searls help wrap things up by bringing the perspective of Project VRM (Vendor Relationship Management) into the fold. As Doc explains, it is through this inverted relationship that he hopes institutions, such as NPR, PBS, and others will be able to encourage and streamline participation with their audience, giving them a sustainable “business model,” of sorts.

For an extended, uncut conversation between Colin and Jake, click here and stay tuned for the next episode of Berkman.TV!
