PubCampWest project pitch: Integrating Online by ianhillmedia

PubCampWest is a collaboration of KPCC, Southern California Public Radio, PBS SoCal and KQED.

PublicMediaCamp, or PubCamp for short, is a nationwide series of gatherings focused on forging greater collaboration between public media organizations and their communities. Inspired by unconferences such as Foocamp and Barcamp, PubCamps are informal opportunities for techies and community media makers to get together with NPR and PBS staff and develop projects together.
