Pod Blog Vod Part 2

sonar2

2nd training gig for the BBC.

(GBR) Yesterday MediaSnackers was delivering three 90minute training sessions to another group of BBC journalists/production staff. Our bit focussed on young people and the changing media landscape plus ‘RSS 101 for noobies’—this was part of the second internal BBC ‘Pod, Blog, Vod’ day.

The session was aimed at those who had little or no knowledge of RSS feeds and how they could be used. DK pitched his session just right and engaged so well with each of the groups. They all benefitted from his relaxed but highly informed style.

Jane Kinghorn, Creative Producer

Thanks to all the participants for making the day great and for challenging me with their questions.

The MediaSnackers Meme #3

meme

[SUMMARY—Keeping track of the growing MediaSnackers Meme.]

(WORLD) We weren’t the first to apply the ‘snacking’ metaphor to media. Although there seems to be a growing adoption in terms of describing the new youth-media landscape—we thought it would be good to keep an eye on the growing MediaSnacking meme:

Start selling ‘snack sized’ pieces of content on sites like iTunes—think 20cents, not $11.99
Branding and trends blog Influx on how to market the second Borat movie.

Are we now grazing media as if we were gathering digital blackberries in an electronic forest?
Antonio Lopez, Media Educator from his blog post exploring the MediaSnackers Meme.

Thinking about this, I begin to wonder if this is truly “snacking”. While I’m constantly searching for small bits of information, I’m also getting something much more substantial: highly personalized content all delivered to my inbox. It’s not just bits, because there’s a wealth of substantial material.
Brad Levinson commenting on the recent Wired feature on his blog.

The MediaSnackers Meme #2

meme

Keeping track of the growing MediaSnackers Meme.

(WORLD) We weren’t the first to apply the ‘snacking’ metaphor to media. Although there seems to be a growing adoption in terms of describing the new youth-media landscape—we thought it would be good to keep an eye on the growing MediaSnacking meme:

Here’s an article discussing how MediaSnacking has biult momentum through user-generated video websites.

Those clever girls and boys from Wired write their Snack Minifesto:

In the morning, we check news and tap out emails on laptops. At work we graze all day on videos and blogs. Back home, the giant HDTV is for 10-course feasting—say, an entire season of 24. In between are the morsels that fill those whenever minutes, as your mobile phone carrier calls them: a 30-second game on your Nintendo DS, a 60-second webisode on your cell, a three-minute podcast on your MP3 player.

Disney Channel Worldwide president Gary Marsh sums it up superbly:

What we’re really trying to do is be all the places that kids are. Kids are media snackers. They will consume media in many, many different places. We want to make sure that when they are hungry, we are available.
