This came in the other day…
My name is Lowell Deo and I am a producer for a Seattle Channel program called Neighborhood News. We visit neighborhoods around Seattle twice a month and spotlight the positive goings-on there. David Keyes told me about your wiki program. I would love to learn more about it for a possible story to air May 22nd.
Please check us out and let me know if you might be interested in showcasing your work through us. You can see previous stories we've done in other neighborhoods by clicking on the following link.
Anyway, I do look forward to hearing from you and seeing what your program is all about. If we're able to work together, this would probably need to be shot the first or second week of May.
Thanks in advance for your consideration.
Host/Producer "Neighborhood News"
My first thought is — great! Here's some new support for all the cool things happening in the neighborhood.
My second thought is — it can't be done. How do we project the spirit of a community-driven website on TV? If they interview the site admin, that would go against the grain of the thing. Columbia Citizens is all about what neighbors care to share with neighbors.
Columbia Citizens needs its Citizenry to help show what it is we're doing here.
What if a bunch of us showed up at the farmers market toting our canvas bags and a pithy sentence or two to share with Lowell? Something simple like — How do you take part in Columbia Citizens?
Any other suggestions?
