Downtown Sacramento: Cycling enthusiasts in Sacramento California have enjoyed the support of Sacramento Area Bicycle Advocates, or SABA, for nearly ten years.

ACM West features AccessLocal.TV by Foxyea

Reno NV: Over the weekend community media enthusiasts from all over the western United States, along with a few from the east, gathered in Reno Nevada for the Alliance for Community Media Western Region Conference. The ACM West oversees the prestigious WAVE Awards, which are awarded to Community Access television and film producers for their work in a wide range of categories. Along with the award ceremony, the conference hosts workshops on a variety of community media related topics. This year, Kristian Manoff from Foxyea Web Media spoke at two of the workshops in which AccessLocal.TV Beta was featured. Along with WordPress MU, Buddypress and VideoPress, the workshops also covered Miro

Community, a great way to aggregate video from multiple web sources into a single RSS Media feed. Another popular topic of the conference was the emergence of Neighborhood News as a way to incorporate citizen reporting into community media centers the way that Access Sacramento is doing with their Neighborhood News Bureaus program. Development is underway for the next release of AccessLocal.TV, which will continue to bring together all of these technologies and concepts into a Hyper-Local focused web media system.

Neighborhood News at the Neighborhood Summit 2010

May 21st 2010 Sacramento CA: The Sacramento Convention Center was the site of this years Neighborhood Summit. Attended by Sacramento health and service vendors, the summit also featured a presentation from Access Sacramento’s Neighborhood News team, AccessLocal.TV. The presentation included an overview of the campaign by Ron Cooper from Access Sacramento, and Kristian Manoff from Foxyea Web Media. They showcased the new AccessLocal.TV website and WordPress MU interface to a packed conference room, and fielded questions from budding journalists and interested community members. While some in the audience had a lot of questions about the security needs of site with this scope, the majority of the audience wanted to know where to sign up.

Access Sacramento has identified five locations that will host Neighborhood News Bureaus in South Sacramento County. The NNB’s will report their stories using AccessLocal.TV built by Foxyea Web Media and powered by WordPress MU. Along with providing an interface for NNB Reporters, the website also includes the social networking plugin BuddyPress which allows the Reporters and Subscribers to be part of an online community.

Currently in its beta phase, AccessLocal.TV is hoping to build popularity and adoption into the community as an outlet for those voices often overlooked by commercial media.

AccessLocal.TV Beta Released!

Access Sacramento continues to gather support for their Neighborhood News project. In a recent move prompted by a consultation with the CSUS Digital Media department, the domain name was changed from AsIsOnline.TV to AccessLocal.TV.

“We liked AccessLocal.TV because it communicates what we are doing, stewarding media access to Sacramento’s South County area.” Said Ron Cooper, Executive Director.

While the project is initially focusing on the South County area, due to its ethnic diversity and lower economic demographic, the site will feature content from all over California, and beyond. Check out the beta site at:

The need for a Public Access Vlogging option, the BuddyPress Difference.

A vlog is a website that contains posts with video typically organized in reverse chronological order. Blogging and Vlogging have become a popular past time of many people. Technorati currently states it is tracking over 112.8 million blogs. When the term was first introduced in 1999, web blogs were mostly online journals. Today blogs are used for everything from journaling, to promoting businesses and local news content. With the emergence of this new form of media as an effective way of building idea recognition, there is a rising need to steward blogging to all demographics, ethnic groups, and economic levels. AccessLocal.TV and the Neighborhood News program begin to meet this need, while extending to its members the opportunity to benefit from Local Access Television and Radio resources and audiences.

While blogging gives Internet users a way to quickly publish their ideas, social media gives them a way to communicate with each other. Social media website FaceBook boasts that it has reached over 300 million members. While the level of privacy provided by social media websites is often debated, there is no question as to popularity or the ability of a social network to create a lot of exposure for its users ideas. Thanks to BuddyPress, a plugin for WordPress MU, AccessLocal.TV is also a social media community allowing its members to connect with each other, comment on each others work, as well as leave each other public and private messages.
