Consultant Rob Paterson is a thoughtful observer of the public broadcasting scene in the U.S. and posted some observations gleaned from that experience and from listening at last week's Public Media 2009 conference in Atlanta. He writes of an emerging transformational plan for public broadcasting:

- Become Vital to America - important is not good enough in these time
- Fully Use the Network Effect to lower costs systemically and to attract Resources beyond Money
- Speak only with one voice - speak as a "Whole" system ..
