11/4/06 Fleck.TV assembles Blue Ribbon panel
about User Generated Content for Academy of Television's
longtime chum from the frozen North, Kay Sumner has a strong
streak of "hey, let's make TV better, eh?" As co-creator
of National Geographic's "The Dog Whisperer" she
has good instincts. Soooo, when she dragooned us into convening
a panel to kick off the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences
(they give out the Emmy award), we said OK.
thousand phone calls later, we wrangled the bunch above to
speak at the NextTV conference on the topic of "User
Generated Content" or as Wayne Goldstein put it, "everything
including video of the cat barfing on Santa Claus."
