We are excited to present Webisode #2 the True North Media House story. When content consumers become content producers, what’s next? How about a place for them to all hang out, share and publish their content together. Join the TNMH folks as the invite the world to join them in Vancouver for this very large meetup called the Olympics. Watch Here
We will continue to document this story during the Games and are hopeful to capture social media’s next wave. Bringing like minded folks together to share content can only lead to something special. New tools, new technology, new ideas, what will it be?
In this video you will meet ‘Techartist’ Kris Krug and ‘Social Media Guru’ Dave Olson. I first met Kris and Dave on Feb. 3rd 2009. There was a shout out on Twitter about a meetup at a Gastown tech company for those who were interested in exploring social media’s inclusion in the 2010 Winter Olympics. There was quite a buzz in the air that night as folks were excited about the idea of creating a non accredited media center. That buzz has continued through the year and is reaching its peak as Citizen Journalist from around the world gather in Vancouver.
“The way media is gathered and delivered continues to change – tools like YouTube, blogs, wikis, Twitters, RSS, FaceBook … etc. are several years old and all over the mainstream news now while newspapers close and TV seeks new revenue streams. Major stories break by amateurs with media capturing devices on their phones and important work is created by talented under-the-radar writers, photographers, filmmakers etc. who have significant online audience.
We feel the tools are mature, the bandwidth abundant, the creators eager and the world is watching.”

Thanks and check back for Webisode # 3.
