2nd part

Martin Zimper shows pure sensia consumer review: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HXTxury70xc

DAB, FM, IP, Media Player + Aux Input Radio

includes touch screen

"touch screen is a little bit flaky"

improvements by software updates

Twitter, weather, facebook applications

general impression: "awesome and innovative product"

250£, 450$

What should the kitchen radio look like?

is the kitchen radio dead?

thought of interaction doesn't flow into product design, radio is hands free, possibility to interact suits not to every form of program

study by "global", people do not want to type, visual branding is important, private broadcasters could sell adds, tagging feature (information via email about program)

people can also use other devices to give feedback

people decide how they will use a device

Pete Downton talks about http://audioboo.fm/, you can use your phone to create your own audio reports

Schultz: if you add a small change to something as formatted as radio (add interaction, visual radio), it's not radio anymore

Schultz: user culture will come out of mobile devices

Doug: "People will update to better"

Radio is a homebase, sense of belonging is very important in radios

Coinchon: visual radio shouldn't become bad tv

Downton: uses Sensia to display pictures of his son

Downton: Audio is a very personal and powerful form of delivery

Use case for kitchen radio: listening while cooking, you hear a track and can tag it for download

Downton: it's the content that matters

What is the nature of content

realtime

local

personal

life(style) of listeners

habitual medium

all mediums converge in the internet, it's a new world

convergency changes the medium

time magazine on the ipad is not the time magazine anymore

what content will we listen to in the future and how will this content be created?

interactive community

quality journalists

regional content, local news

when you start unpackaging traditional media you learn what's important

Doug: cultural glue: citizen fm in sierra leone: every car, every store was tuned to this station. you could hear it everywhere

radio can produce a cultural glue

credibility of content is important

context matters when presenting music

what are the formats?

we don't talk about records anymore, we talk about music

almost no music in the form of albums anymore

london pirate radio developped new music styles

enable platforms where people are free to develop new formats

allow listeners to become producers

fm station with 20000 listeners are still more than the most popular netradios

what content?

Bürkler: news, technology, uncut interviews – music i can get everywhere

Troxler: open source radio could be understood to get access to the whole uncut interview

Schorno: two mysthiques about radio: cultural glue & choice. what if there was a jukebox of your favourite content

Doug: homophilia "if i like country music all which will be on my jukebox is country music".

Doug: Trust you have into the radio dj

Doug: curation is a very important part of radio

linear vs. on demand

live aspect of linear medium like world cup is still important

Schultz: DJ is the master of the archive

Niesser: news from the city, local music wtih local moderators

will we need professionals or "users" to create quality content?

Bürkler: we need both

Community can say what is good and what should be broadcasted

Schultz: radio is an old and conservative medium

Schultz: Show called Talking point on BBC world service. people can phone in from the whole world. moderator has to find a flow in the show

Radio can facilitate the content that gets produced by users

Doug: no devision between users and professionals

Doug: cult of professionalism often prevents content to be shown.

Doug: often tools don't allow for innovation

Downton: getty images is crowdsourcing image production

Downton: new business models are necessary

Gilgen: research and truthchecking is expensive

Conclusions

Zimper

new age of empathy begins

radio is about people showing empathy to other people

it's about people showing empathy to other people and to their lifes

it's not only about music or formats

showing people empathy from different lifestyles and different cultures

the new radio maybe has to find its new meaning (also paraphrasing McLuhan)

Coinchon

it must stay simple and free to air

you don't need a subscription, you can get it for free

internet streaming is good, but it's not free

content is king

radio broadcasting won't disappear completeley

Bürkler

quality content

radio is an emotional thing and should stay that way

computers playing music is not emotional

Troxler

broader spectrum of formats

radio presenters should be stewards to content and community

radio should be in the role of facilitating discussions between experts and people who are fascinated by a topic

sources of content should be linked

Baranowski

independent radio content

Gilgen

just creativty

Niesser

invest in people

go out and interview people

enable the listeners to be active

Arellanes

every new medium developped makes old mediums become artforms (paraphrases McLuhan

we shape the tools then the tools shape us

Schultz

wants to get a fm license in berlin

Schorno

human expression shouldn't die out

Downton

discuss more about content and not about distribution
