New Media Interchange

New Media Interchange is changing and growing!

New Media Interchange is turning into its very own podcast for the 3rdPass Media network.

Starting April 15 — and then weekly after that — New Media Interchange will be a new media news podcast focusing on “the media world beyond mainstream television and radio, including podcasting, YouTube, live streaming, gaming and more.”

Upcoming stories include:

Netflix programming investments
TubeFilter on best time to release your videos
Essay Attracting Attention to Yoursef
Fragmentation in the TV industry
Meerkat, Periscope and other live streaming alternatives
…and more!

Watch for more information and release of upcoming shows!

I’ll be setting up a new MailChimp mailing list for NMI and removing the GoogleGroups list, so you’ll see more full-featured email newsletters in the future.

Looking forward to kicking off another great project and podcast!

Former NPR newscaster starts podcast

If it’s true that a New Media ‘can’t get no respect’ until the Old Media types begin to populate it, then we’re about to get a boost from former NPR Day to Day newscaster Madeline Brand who is beginning a Mommy blog/podcast this weekend according to this story in today’s LA Times:

Parenting on the Edge: Madeleine Brand casts a critical eye on classic kids’ books

Why am I throwing yet another (b)log on the towering inferno of mommy blogs out there? There must be at least a gazillion of them, to use my son’s word for anything larger than 10. And yet there also seems to be an unquenchable desire to talk about parenting, as if we’re the first to experience it. Turning “parent” into a gerund would have been alien to our parents, which says a lot about where we are.

I used to host a radio show on NPR called “Day to Day.” Whenever we did a story on parenting, the response was big. I thought, “Wow, this is really connecting with our listeners; wouldn’t it be great to do a whole show or series of podcasts on this topic?” But being a mom with a full-time job, I couldn’t really find the time.

Soon, I had all the time in the world: NPR canceled the show, and I lost my job. So I downsized from NPR’s swank Culver City studios to my closet, which my husband gallantly soundproofed. I bought some audio equipment, and “Parenting on the Edge” was born. Earlier episodes, which I posted at, covered topics such as what children should not be learning in preschool (their ABCs); the social dilemmas faced by stay-at-home dads; why a family gave up everything (car, home, retirement fund) to travel the world; and how to have a good conversation with your child. (Start by not asking, “How was school today?”)

I suppose this one caught my eye ’cause I liked her work on Day to Day – and I liked her first topic since I so disliked The Giving Tree myself – though Runaway Bunny I could spend some time defending!

Forbes: Ask An Expert: Advertising With New Media

Now if we can just get some of this Yellow Pages advertising income to come into the New Media advertising market.

Question: Is advertising in the Yellow Pages book still of any value? Should I replace my listing in the Yellow Pages with online advertising? And if so–with what? Local paid search?

Answer: Throw your telephone book away or use it to level your piano. The original promise of the Web was geographically relevant information. Over the last two years the ability for marketers to target locally has become easier and more effective.

Elsewhere Online: Here’s one way you can use video in your real estate blog

Real Estate has a great post on how realtors can make use of new media in their work.

“One question I get from folks is, “how can I use video?” Well, the first thing I would say is– Don’t do video tours of your listings unless you are getting a professional to put it together. We tried doing our own listing tours in our brokerage, and it was a colossal waste of time and effort. The folks at REShows and MLBroadcast are able to put together a much better presentation of your listing using photos and music than you are able to make with video (unless you are a videographer).”

News: Joss Whedon’s New Media Musical

I saw this story today in the LA Times. While, again, it is someone who has lots of money to invest, it does show somw movement into the new media world by traditional media folks.

Another story on this show — Whedon’s Web Musical Fanboy-tastic!

From The Los Angeles Times…

Joss Whedon’s ‘Dr. Horrible’ trailer hits the net
11:26 AM PT, Jun 25 2008

Below is a short trailer for “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog,” the much-anticipated three-part musical from “Buffy” creator Joss Whedon.

“Dr. Horrible” stars Neil Patrick Harris, Felicia Day and Nathan Fillion, and Whedon describes it as follows: “It’s the story of a low-rent super-villain, the hero who keeps beating him up, and the cute girl from the laundromat he’s too shy to talk to.”

The series, comprised of three 10-minute episodes, is poised to premiere on the Internet–most likely next month. Whedon began working on it during the writers strike, and it represents his first major experiment with Web-original programming.
