Spring Forward :)


Where to begin? Well I am much better since my last field report. I have come to peace with my work and have come to accept that I just need to take it one step at a time without pressuring myself all the time. It has worked so far. :)

Wait, it's fall already?


Hey Dascorps folks! The time is zooming by, as several of you have mentioned. Things are good here, though very busy! A few things that are gong on:

-PCF just launched a new project today - - it's a collaborative Q&A site related to video production, so I'd love it if you all would stop by and ask/answer questions, and spread the word!

I'm excited for you to be going to the thing in DC. I wanted to go, but I had scheduling conflicts. Def keep us posted on what you learn.

it should be interesting - you can also check out the #nprthink hashtag on twitter for related stuff: - from this event - .



Well it's been awhile since I've posted, and I know I could just copy and paste from my CCTV blog, which I'll do eventually (once I get back to writing longer blog posts instead of just the snippets I've had time to do lately). For now I must say: I am beat.

Rest up and definitely post the orientation materials to the wiki. I created a Citizen Journalism space on the wiki at You should be able to edit the main description and upload files. I hereby dub you the moderator of the citizen journalism section!

Hey Julie! How's everything? My organization has a fledgling citizen journalism program that has existed for several years. I am aggressively seeking funding to hire a news editor to head up/jump start our operation and provide stipends to citizen journalists whose articles we publish. I'd be quite interested to see what your training program looks like. Ours is quite unique, since we publish print articles on our "web portal," and we also broadcast citizen journalism pieces on various radio shows our volunteers produce. Some have professional journalism experience, but most are local DJs who love music and support independent media. Those are the kind of folks who I think would benefit from the training program you described.

Hey Meegan, what org. are you at again? We should definitely talk! Email me at julie.m.adler at gmail.

Bad Link


Ooops.  My last blog had a bad link.  The website is


I had originally typed the link as just "" (which works in your browser, but not in this web software).   

Setting up your account and blogging on the new site



  1. Begin at (On the right, you should see ‘user login’)
  2. Before you can actually login you need to click the link to ‘request new password’ just below the user login.
  3. Fill in your name and/or email address, click ‘email new password’, and you will receive an email with your password.  The site will direct you to a login page, but instead check your email and use the second link (the longer one) provided in the email to log in. 
  4. The link should take you to a page that says ‘reset password’.  Click the ‘log in’ link and find yourself at the ‘account settings’ page under the ‘edit’ tab of your account (your name should be at the top of the page and let you know that you’ve ‘used your one-time login link’)
  5. Set up your account by entering your email address and creating a password for your account.  You may also upload a picture for your account if you’d like and/or create a signature.  When you’re done, hit login at the bottom of the page.  
  6. Still under ‘Account Settings’ you will see two other sections ‘Organization’ and ‘Personal’
  7. Under ‘Organization’ fill in as many fields as you can.  When you’re done, press ‘submit’.  ****you must hit ‘submit’ at the bottom of the page before moving to a different tab in order to save your info******
  8. Under ‘Personal’ ********you must fill in your name, address, and a number where you can be reached.  The Project needs this information for their records and payroll.  If you would like to make this information private, you may do so at the bottom of the page.***************  Directly below zip code, and just above submit, you can check a ‘make private’ box so no one else outside of headquarters/administrators can see it.

Hey Erin,

These directions look great! I'm thinking we might want to set up a resource portal for site help...let's sit down on Wednesday and do that.
