I started writing Thursday afternoon about the NPR purchase of Public Interactive, but I figured I’d better stop. I have experience with both entities, I’ve read the press release, but I’m going to give the NPR and PI community 24 hours to express their thoughts first.
Because, at face value and based on the PR piece, I’m baffled as to why this is such great news.
The only way this purchase makes sense is if there’s something new NPR is planning that didn’t get described in the press release.
Please, public media blogosphere and Twitterverse, educate me! Can you complete the equation in this post’s title?
