Radio-to-Go, a Workshop on the Future of Radio
The Radio-To-Go workshop was created to develop “new radio experiences”, combining old techniques with new. The workshop was put together by Mediamatic, a cultural institution in Amsterdam, and it covered broadcasting, online radio, micro transmitters and user generated content.
The best projects were transmitted live yesterday by Radio Rietveld, a temporary radio station broadcasting directly from the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. If you missed that chance, don’t worry, because you can still build your own micro transmitter to broadcast your podcast directly from your iPod.
The workshop was centered in had speakers like the media designer Lotte Meijer, who developed the Broadcast-Your-Podcast and Wifio projects. Her work and research shows that you can always create something new, even in an old media like radio. Among the other speakers were Klaas Kuitenbrouwer, programmer of the former Radio 100, Radio Patapoe and VPRO, and the girls from Cut-n-Paste, which presented their innovative radio projects LoveControl, Teletap and CallCenter that mixes podcast, broadcast and mobile phones in unexpected ways. With initiatives like this, I’m sure radio has still a long way to go.
