NPR Digital ThinkIn: Live Stream On Friday

On Friday, I’ll be attending a Digital Think In hosted by National Public Radio and Frog Design. The goal of the gathering is to brainstorm ideas about the future of NPR. I was honored to be asked to join. And my self aside, the line-up of participants is very exciting:

Craig Newmark, Founder of craigslist; Reid Hoffman, Chairman and co-Founder of LinkedIn; Roger McNamee, Managing Director and Co-Founder of Elevation Partners; Chris Beard, Chief Innovation Officer of Mozilla; Krishna Bharat, Principal Scientist and creator of Google News; and Sue Gardner, Executive Director of Wikimedia Foundation, among many others.

Tim Leberecht, frog design’s vice president of marketing and communications, sets the stage with this post today:

“The Think In will explore five main topics that are significant to NPR’s ecosystem and its future: social media and connection to the audience, the organization’s national network of more than 800 stations, the potential of its open API, expansion of platforms, and its diversified revenue model. After an NPR overview and an opening session, participants will break out into small groups to develop concepts that NPR can incorporate into its organizational roadmap.”

It’s a relatively small group of only about 60 or so folks. But the good news is that you can follow along either through this Web site set up by NPR for the event or on Twitter by following #nprthink.

And if you have any thoughts of your own about the future of NPR, please share them below and I’ll bring them along with me to the event.
