A portion of the active conversation around the Community Media Drupal Project has moved over to a Slack group over the past month. In the true spirit of open source this is a less than ideal means for planning and discussing a project. I acknowledge that. But, it has been a rather active conversation which has stimulated some new thinking about the project and where organizations need to take it in 2016 and assessing where the capacity is to take it.Read more
Is anyone down south of 128, west of 24, south 95 - ish?
I'm located down in Easton, Massachusetts and doing some work with Drupal 7 and community media. Some of the adjacent communities are as well.
Are there any deep south of Boston meetups?

The Alliance for Community Media Northeast Region is accepting proposals to redesign, and further develop the regional web site. This will be a concept to completion production. The purpose of this RFP is to provide a fair evaluation for all candidates and to provide the candidates with the evaluation criteria against which they will be judged.
The existing http://acm-ne.org web site was originally designed and produced in 2008 on a Drupal 6 and modified slightly in 2010. The site is maintained with in-house resources.Read more
As part of the effort to refine the useful documentation for non-developers I am trying to expand kreynen's 12 step program for an OMP install. I was tempted to post this as a wiki - but it is very rough, incomplete working path at a public access TV station that just has two staff. For those who have gone through the process or my be farther along - please feel free to comment and provide any feedback. What's missing - really help us break it down. We're moving slow and steady here. - Jason
I've been doing some work recently with the Miro Community software. It creates a community video website which can center around a geographic location or topic. It is very awesome. I have begun pulling video from PEG TV stations and got off the ground pretty quickly (see ACMNE.mirocommunity.org .)Read more
I am looking to help try and do a few tutorials or screencasts for administrators in PEG Access community who have Drupal sites. I am trying to cater these types of tutorials to Drupal sites that might have 1-3 contributors in addition to a site admin. I don't expect the admin to have knowledge of php. This is more just about - let's get a site up and running. These screencastst should be very basic. I also will pull from existing screencasts so I am not reinventing the wheel. Do you have any suggestions?

Do you have any ideas for how work being done between the Drupal community and the PEG TV community should be handled at the 2009 Alliance for Community Media Conference in Portland, OR in July? Any ideas of how it should NOT be handled? A workshop panel, a working session, an Open Media Update? Should we focus on "how to" or "what's new"? Should the focus be more on the Open Source model? Questions, questions.......Read more
Imagine there is the potential to put some resources into an "Access" theme. What sorts of considerations, ideas, caveats cross your mind? OMP has enough on the plate but John suggested I cross post to here and PEGspace.Read more
I might be in a position to initiate a regional database for PEG Access stations in my neck of the woods. Given the work that is being with CiviCRM, Mapping Access, and the KDI PEG work - does anyone have any suggestions on how to approach this task using Drupal tools? What questions do you think I should be asking myself at the outset to get the most out of this project? What is the most effective use of Drupal/CiviCRM in this instance? Can it be done on the cheap as a single person project? What does it sound like to you?
Much like living organisms are classified into groups (say, spiders) where many individual species (say, daddy long legs, black widow, tarantula) exist, we still have some distinguishing characteristics (eight legs, no wings) which separate it from other similar living organisms (say, bees).
I'd like to hear about what you would define as the distinguishing characteristics of a community media organization.Read more
