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.
