Public Media

Welcome to the Public Media group. This group is an umbrella group for supporting and discussing the various uses of Drupal in public media. This is a place to discuss the issues that arise with Drupal implementations, open data formats, station specific configurations, and industry specific requirements.

If you work for a public media organization, please add your name to the list of Public Media Stations Using Drupal. If you have built a module for a public media organization, please add it to the list of Public Media Modules. If you are looking for an audio player, check out this list of Modules that Extend the Media Module.

Catch us on IRC in #drupal-pubmedia on irc.freenode.net. Join us there to ask questions, propose ideas, let us know about your projects, and more. Check out Drupal.org for more info about IRC and Drupal including how to start an account and connect.

We also maintain a list of Drupal developers with public media experience.

Station Module Requirements

The purpose of this wiki page is to develop a list of functional requirements for the Station module as development proceeds. The list is divided into Must Haves, Nice to Haves, and Future Considerations. Please add your own station's requirements to the list under the appropriate category with your d.o username next to each that you agree with. Please consult the group before demoting any requirement.

When a general consensus direction is reached on each requiremnt, these can be turned into issues at the Station issue queue http://drupal.org/project/issues/search/station

Welcome!

We had a great discussion in the Public Media Drupal Developer's Clinic at the Integrated Media Association/SXSW Conference. Everyone in attendance agreed that we need a place to continue our discussion about Drupal in public media. There are many places where could share information and we decided this Public Media Drupal Group would be the most logical place. We felt that we could use this group to post questions, make announcements about modules we are developing, and more.

If you work for a public media organization that that uses Drupal, please add your name to the list of Public Media Stations using Drupal.

Let us know what's on your mind!

OpenBlock Geolocation Hack-a-thon at MIT Media Lab

MIT and Hacks/Hackers are hosting an OpenBlock hack-a-thon Oct. 30 at noon. Why should local Drupalists care?

OpenBlock by itself is an interesting news aggregator, but it's various components, which can be de-coupled, could be very cool, doing everything from auto-geotagging content, very customizable mapping, and much more. Tapping into these components could help a lot of Drupal sites I've seen.

RSVP here for the meetup:
