I feel compelled to share my view of the events that led yesterday to the resignation of Vivian Schiller as CEO of NPR. I don't know if they add up to a coherent response. Maybe not. In these notes I make no attempt to conceal my feelings on the matter, or to neuter myself politically.
A pre-conference post. Ideas in motion. These are notes in preparation for my talk at South by Southwest in Austin next week. And you can help me make it better.
