Hard News by Russell Brown


Reading Material

I'm probably en route from Wellington (for the New Zealand Open Source Awards) to Auckland (for the New Zealand Music Awards) as you read this, but I've left you some reading material.

Firstly, there's my Listener column on the pathetic behaviour of some New Zealanders on Wikipedia after the All Black loss in the World Cup.

But mostly, NZ On Air has posted We're All in This Together: Public Broadcasting in the Digital Age, a discussion paper I wrote with the assistance of Andrew Dubber. It's big -- 17,000 words in a 235KB PDF -- and it took a long time to finish, but I'm quite pleased with it.

As part of the research (and the deliverables), you may recall that I ran a survey to gather ideas about the future of public broadcasting. More than 800 people, from Scoop and Thing, but mostly from Public Address, participated, and there are some great comments on it. Just click the "view" button to read them.

You can find the survey results here.
