29 Media Metamorphosis - Part 2
More from Kennebunkport, Maine, where I met up last weekend with Jim Long, the veteran NBC News cameraman and emerging new-media mogul through his startup, CraftyNation. I first met Jim on Twitter, and it was terrific to visit with him in person and to get a look behind the scenes at media coverage of the French president's visit with the Bushes.

Click To Play
Jim Long, an NBC News cameraman who has founded Verge New Media and is active in several social networks, showed me around the media work station in Kennebunkport, Maine, this weekend during a Bush family stay at Walker's Point. I met Jim on Twitter and was glad to hear he would be within an easy drive from Ocean Park. In this Part 1, he talks about how he first got into broadcasting, and when it dawned on him that something else big was afoot. Jim's personal journey provides an enlightening look at the huge transformation taking place in media via new social networks and tools for creating and distributing content.
