As I was exiting Consumer Health World in Washington, D.C., to catch my plane back to Seattle a few weeks ago, Peter Cervieri who serves as Director of Business Development for New York based ScribeMedia / ScribeStudio grabbed me for an ambush interview. We covered a lot of territory in a short amount of time, including some thoughts about private sector vs. public sector healthcare. If you'd like to take a look, you can find the interview here.

Whether or not you find my interview interesting, you might want to look around the ScribeMedia site and sample some of their other content. As explained on their web site, Scribe Media:


delivers speeches, lectures, roundtables and interviews of thoughtleaders across a number of subject areas that includes current events, media, business and the arts.

The goal is a neutral forum for intelligent dialog and debate uncluttered by soundbytes, instant punditry and shoutfests that have become our national dialog.

We achieve this by working with partners such as publishers, associations and think tanks to film their events and distribute that content across a variety of channels that include this site, television, radio, mobile devices, or a combination of all of these. In short, we deliver content to the people who want it in whatever form they want and need it.

This is another great example of the digital media explosion. Now anyone, anywhere can set up a "studio" and broadcast to the world on demand. Organizations and individuals can be heard and seen as never before. Call it the great equalizer. It is truly an exciting time to be alive. The challenge, of course, is to develop sound business models around this plethora of information.

After watching my interview standing next to Peter, I commented to him that I have only one regret (maybe two). It would be nice to be a few inches taller, and maybe a few years younger again too Smiley
