MEDIA in TRANSITION? / why start another group?

I'm starting this Group since I have not seen anything anywhere where there has been an attempt to gather media professionals in one place where we can exchange ideas, projects, strategies, etc.

This will be a PLACE where editors, musicians, artists, playwrights, filmmakers, journalists, novelists, directors, producers, news people, poets, reporters, and videographers can gather and offer their profiles and ideas. Of course they must have an inherent and compelling urge to communicate the message of Transition, not necessarily about the Transition movement but to engage in the ideas, feelings, intuitions and directions of the evolving times that are ahead of us.

So, if you are one of these media professionals, please join this Group and see what we can make of it.

Hi Bob, I am posting a link to one of my latest shows. While it is primarily content about U.S. foreign policy, Dahr Jamail does say something along the lines of the environmental issues facing us are the greatest moral issue of our time. Thaks, cindy

Hello, all! I joined here even though I live in New Mexico because I learned of this discussion of media matters. I believe the success of the Transition Movement here in the US depends a great deal on reaching non-choir members on radio, tv..., films at film festivals, etc.... Oh, and let us not forget print. So I'm glad to be here to help think through -- and work with -- making that happen even moreso.

And while I'm here, I might as well say that I'd like the US to have its own Transition Radio, as they do over in the UK (now online, and podcast). -- I'd love to have regular audio podcast stories, news, etc. from around the whole US. Local communities could produce their own podcasts and zip it to, say, the folks at Transition US, who could put it all togehter in one place. ... Something like that. What do you think?

I enjoy listening to "radio" (broadcast or podcast) while cooking and washing dishes and such. And I'm not alone.

I'm a writer, editor and occasional public speaker, very much inspired by the Transition movement, so I look forward to helping out.

Hello Media-philes :

This message is especially for those around the Bay Area. You may have seen my postings today about the Commission on a Green New Deal for the North Bay.

We are looking for folks to help record and/or broadcast these Community Forums. If you have the availability to do so or can point to another resource to help this happen, please let me know!

Conclusions from our discussions with Les Squires: keep an eye out for a 1-page flier to promote a monthly video subscription to timely video episodes from More info to come!

This is a comment on the victory garden at the White House. I signed this petition but I also added something else I think we need at the White House. We need a permanent National Christmas tree. I thought this could be a project for Obama's daughters. Find a tree on the grounds and dedicate it as the National Christmas tree so we can stop this nonsense of cutting down and mutilating a tree every year. Also with a National tree the seeds it produces each year could be sent to each state and they could grow a Christmas tree from the Mother tree and plant it on the State Capital grounds. I just hate the idea of killing a beautiful tree every year for the White House Christmas tree. What a waste of a great tree and the expense. It just is not necessary. Maybe we could get a petition started and send it in if anyone else agrees.

Hi Grant,
when I read your previous comments I had this idea that if you wish tom screen films in the bay area... you could possibly link up with all the various transition-post-carbon clubs/orgs and create a massive weekend film festival buy having all sorts of films screened all over the bay area. so people could watch cool films in their own areas. This would give the movement a big push and get the other orgs into stabilizing venues to show films and put the cash into a pool for other gigs.
an idea whose time has come....
