Live Streaming National Conference for Media Reform 2008 This Weekend!~

Aloha

The National Conference for Media Reform 2008, will draw to Minneapolis this year more than 250 presenters and thousands of attendees interested in creating a "more accountable, democratic and diverse media." 

Free Press (the nonprofit hosting NCMR) is streaming the conference on its website: http://www.freepress.net/conference.

 

Tune into the feed this weekend to hear the perspectives of a wide range of media mavens, from PBS broadcaster Bill Moyers and Democracy Now!'s Amy Goodman, to Arianna Huffington of HuffingtonPost.com and Greg Watkins of AllHipHop.com.


Since Creativity Cafe is all about creating conscious media and experientials for helping to "reprogram" the mass mind, we find this to be a significant conference.  I suggest that all interested in creating meaningful media watch and listen to the voices of reason!

Blessings and Peace

Peter

Calling Business Visionaries for Creativity Cafe LA, an Edutainment Venue Startup

Hi Friends,

I discovered a community in alignment with Creativity Cafe intentions and I made contact. I was delighted to discover resonance in one Deborah Boyd who wrote in response to my words:

Organizational architect, eh? We would probably use folks like that in our development team for CREATIVITY.COM. I am currently its steward with a goal to make the domain useful to all who visit it, as well as lucrative. I envision authentication, validation, digital distribution, royalty compensation, colloraboration tracking, etc..

I envision C.com serving to be a compendium of creativity with a focus on healing, interpersonal communication and spiritual redevelopment of spaceship Earth.

I have been given more than I can handle and being a dreamer, just can't stop creating. However where most people stop (at the idea) I take action... a one man band able to mimic the top 10 roles in a company with the help of my skills, tool set, vision, passion and Apple Computers! Now if only I could find like minded venue operators and visionary business folk to help architect the Creativity Cafe Consortium and Founders Team, poised for action in LA.

It seem's like you might be a good person to ask? BTW, I almost grew up in Arlington... visiting my cousins. I crawld every mile of sewer pipe when they were laying it.

Thanks for your comment viz a viz CCafe.

Well I think that sounds like a plan. Let us negotiate. How can I help you? What stands in the way of what you want to do?


Hi Deborah, I would say finding a seasoned business visionary of spiritual bent, who has a firm grip on the technology and implications of social networking, who has access to the several millions of start up dollars needed to put a prototype venue in place (all the market research has been done and systems/programs proven in prototype installations. Someone dedicated to serving a creative constituency (in Los Angeles initially with global reach) for fine tuning our business package (for franchising) and setting up to business side of our mentoring, edutainment, and public/member services. I have amassed several great teams in the past but without funds, the folks left the fold. Therefore we (I) need a person seasoned in "old" business with a mindset for innovation and innovative business practices (I want all who associate with CCs to derive social as well as economic benefits, someone with a passion and dedication to being of service. Someone aware of general systems design, mass media on the cutting edge of education and entertainment. Ideally the person would be (know a good entertainment-business lawyer who can help protect intellectual property, create co-branding agreements with existing companies; a negotiator for establishing relations with other entities to protect our brands-extend our reach, position our projects and help secure other needed resources. A good PR and Marketing Communication person is also being sought for the founders team. I hope that answers your question? I have many documents explaining energy flows, target markets, (and old spreadsheet with 10 of the 25 envisioned profit streams), etc. We are talking about broadcasting from the venue(s) on the Web, via mobile devices and terrestrial television as part of each community venue's game plan, so a background in mass communication would be very helpful as well as licensing and franchise law knowledge and organization. Wheew! :-)

Thanks for you interest and care. I hope that helps?

So there you have it. We are gathering energy for beginning production on a regular basis in Los Angeles. Please make contact if this work touches you in any way? We are seeking artists, business folk, venue operators, legal eagles, etc to be on the founders team.

Blessings and Peace,
Peter
