Interview with Melissa Ulbricht from the

I was recently contacted by the very lovely Melissa Ulbricht from the website requesting a Skype interview. Melissa had previously contacted me via the blog after I posted my mobile journalism editing workflow in Budapest last October which was subsequently included in some of the resources on the MMT website..

The MobileMediaToolkit is a brilliant resource site, one of the definitive ones in my opinion and I was very flattered that they would request an interview. I must compliment Melissa on the breath and scope of the project – it is well worth a visit to get a global perspective on the evolution of MoJo.

Heres an excerpt from the ABOUT US section of the website.

The Mobile Media Toolkit is a project of

“… The Mobile Media Toolkit is a collection of  tools and resources, as well as examples of how mobile phones can be and are being used in the media industry.

The simple fact is that using mobile phones in media production isn’t always as easy as it seems. Finding the right tool and using it correctly to reach the broadest possible audience requires knowledge of the mobile landscape. The need for guidance in the industry is apparent.

The Mobile Media Toolkit provides guidance on tools, resources, and case studies of how mobiles can be used for reporting, news broadcasting, and citizen media participation on a variety of platforms and in a variety of circumstances. 

The project is funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and run by Melissa Ulbricht, Project Manager of the Mobile Media Toolkit.

She holds a master’s degree in journalism from the Missouri School of Journalism in Columbia, Missouri. At Mizzou, she produced a weekly international radio program called Global Journalist. Melissa’s studies focused on international communication and issues of press freedom. She attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison for her undergraduate studies.
