PodCorps Halfway To Volunteer Goal

Jan 12th, 2008 | By | Category: Audio Podcasting, Citizen Media, General

IT Conversations founder and Conversations Network head Doug Kaye sends word that his latest community project, PodCorps.org, is halfway to its goal of 1,000 volunteer audio “stringers.”

PodCorps.org is a team of independent audio/video producers who record and publish important events and interviews anywhere in the world. PodCorps.org is a new project of The Conversations Network, and was announced last fall at the Podcast and New Media Expo (PNME).

PodCorps is building a database of volunteers in different geographic locations who are willing to step in as stringers, tape sync experts, and event producers.

In his latest update, Doug Kaye reports:

“Last night we reached a major milestone. We now have more than 500 stringers in the PodCorps.org database, half way towards our goal of 1,000. Thanks to all of you for joining. We’re getting close to the critical mass we need.”

In an unrelated note, Doug asks:

“Did you know you can earn ‘wine money’ (a little more than beer money) by producing programs for The Conversations Network? We’re looking for
both writer/editors and post-production audio engineers to join TeamITC, the worldwide team of people who produce our programs in their spare time.”
