Yesterday I spent one of the most exciting 30 minutes of my week talking with Lila King and Karyn Lu of Echo. Echo is an art and civic journalism project that will produce and collect stories tied to physical locations throughout Atlanta.
Karyn and Lila believe everyone has a fascinating story to tell. The interview below gives a little peek into the Echo story.
Karyn and Lila won $10,000 in seed money from the New Media Women Entrepreneurs. During the day Lila leads the online team behind CNN's iReport.com where Karyn is the user experience lead. It's great to see this kind of big thinking emerge from the people behind the scenes at the established media companies in Atlanta.
