Robert Paterson in an article about the future of public radio and the use of technology:
In my 2 years of work with stations it is now clear to me that technology is not the barrier to the New Media Reality that we have to reach. There are a number of barriers – none of which are mentioned in the release.
A very high barrier is cultural – a 2.0 world cannot be trained for – it has to be lived. There has to be enough people on staff who are digital natives. It is people that will make the difference not technology.
Excellent. We can only move into the worlds of connection and collaboration by doing and not training. It requires a new way of learning, that is native to some of us, but entirely foreign to others.
