Talking new media publishing at Uncapped Live

Why was I involved with the Vitamin Water #UncappedLive event series Sept. 6? Part of the 16-day celebration of music, media, arts and other niches was the New Media Unplugged event hosted by magazine and Technically Philly at Philadelphia’s Sigma Sound studio.

I joined editors from Geekadelphia, Drink Philly, Naked Philly and Generocity, among others for a pretty informal discussion about my work with NEast Philly.

At 3 years old, NEast Philly was one of the older independently published sites represented at the event, but I ended up learning a lot and, I think more importantly, meeting my goal of connecting other small-time publishers with Northeast Philadelphia to drive more varied coverage to that huge but little-known part of the city.

It was great event with great people who are publishing or looking to publish news about everything, big and small, all across Philadelphia.
