Rob Bole, CPB’s veep of digital media strategy, is working to bring together public media folks at the upcoming SXSW event. “I see an opportunity to help get out of parochial grooves, network, make connections and generally be more collaborative,” he told Current in an email. He’s gathering a list of interested pubmedia types that he’ll redistribute. There’ll be a call for “SXSW newbies” with Kevin Dando, director of digital and education communications at PBS. Bole is also planning a Sunday evening social event, a #pubsxsw Twitter hashtag for back-channel communications, and a post-SXSX briefing via WebEx conferencing. Interested?
