2010 Meeting Minutes

Hello, my name is VJ, and I'm the new Web Coordinator


Hi KBOO peoples!

I've been at KBOO as a staff member for a little over a month now, and I am loving it. Thanks for the warm welcome!

I've been a web designer/developer for 15 years, working at OSU, NWREL (now Education Northwest) and Washington County Coop Library Services on their websites. I'm really interested in usability, and findability. I have been working with Drupal (the software that powers KBOO.fm) for a couple of years.

What's so great about KBOO?


It seems that there are as many answers to the question as there are listeners and web surfers. The tapestry of culture centered in Portland that propagates the world is rich and vibrant with passion, purpose and peculiarity.

We want to know what keeps you coming back for more. There's so much variety that it's hard to imaging someone not finding something interesting or down right fascinating.

Is it the music, news, public affairs or other? As we approach the dry season, we invite you to share your perspective with us. Thanks for participating!

Web Coordinator 2.0


As KBOO's new web coordinator, one of my top priorities is to continue to encourage inclusive and decentralized contributions from the many. We want you on our team as we continue to build rich content, accessible functionality, unique design and interactive opportunities. The potential for growth is tremendous when we consider all that we have to share.

Goodbye to KBOO and Welcoming our New Web Coordinator


I'm sad to announce that this is my last month here at KBOO, as I will be moving away to be with family. I've found a wonderful second family here at the station and I hope that my time here has been a positive contribution.

While leaving will be difficult, I'm very happy we have selected Dan Gurin to take over my position and continue taking KBOO into the digital realm. The hiring committee had a tremendous amount of highly qualified candidates apply for the position, which made our selection process very challenging. But Dan stood out for a variety of reasons.

Creating Community Online


We've recently adopted KBOO's house rules to apply to our website and have posted our community guidelines.  Please read these so you are aware of our expectations of those participating in discussions on this site.

Best of the Free Music Archive 2009


At the beginning of the year, KBOO joined WFMU, KEXP and a handful of other stations for an experiment that challenged the basic rule of the recording industry since its foundation: you must pay for music.

I wasn't quite sure how musicians would react to the premise of the Free Music Archive - an interactive online library of free high-quality, legal audio downloads. Only a few big names like Radiohead are known for embracing this idea. But I did know that music lovers - the only reason a music industry exists - would be all over it.

Job Opening - Web Coordinator


Do you have a knack for online social networks, experience building websites, and a passion for community media?  We're looking to hire a new Web Coordinator to help redefine what radio can become in the digital realm.  KBOO is home to hundreds of volunteers looking to share their programs online and we need someone who can excel at working with diverse groups.

The position is half-time with excellent benefits and would begin in March.  Details on the job and the application can be found on our employment page.  Applications are due February 10th.

For Posting: Images


Make your post look great by inserting an image, or multiple images, to be displayed with your text.  With the new KBOO website, users will have a new way to upload images into their posts.  I've created this video to demonstrate.
