My Plan for this site in 2011

Happy New Year. Currently working on a new series of presentations researching into the integration of social media with traditional broadcasting. A lot of international media seems to be collapsing at the moment, but the ways of storytelling on emerging platforms has never been more exciting than now. Would like to work with more creative companies working on the next steps for storytelling… I also really enjoy organising break-out sessions (2-3 days) to come up with a media strategy for the next three years. Trying to do more of that. I am using this site to share the stories that I find on my travels. It’s kind of like what I used to do on Media Network, but more visual. So what are your plans?

In Search of Radio’s Future
In Search of Radio’s Future – the trailer from Jonathan Marks on Vimeo.

For the last five years I have been doing interviews with people around the world tracing radio’s switch from analogue to digital production. These are challenging times for the medium, the future seems to be different for every single country. This documentary in the making takes some case studies explaining where radio understands it’s role in society, and therefore why it’s needed in the future. Interested when it’s ready? Drop me an e-mail and be the first to know.
