What's Harry Been Doing Lately?

What have I been doing? Well, I have spent most of my waking hours working on LexMedia the non-profit corporation that runs the Public Access cable channels in Lexington, MA. In the last year we have completely reinvented LexMedia by:
  1. Getting rid of the last Executive Director who was on a course of making LexMedia fail
  2. Recruiting a new Executive Director who brings a lot of talents to LexMedia that we don't already have, and is a pleasure to work with. What a change!
  3. Building a new studio at Kline Hall in the Avalon Lexington Hills residential complex.
  4. Outfitting that studio with a completely new all digital broadcast system.
As Chairman of LexMedia, I have tried to foster an open organization where there are no pockets of unwarranted private information -- the kind of information inept people use to insure their job security. Rather we value people by what they accomplish.

Having said that, I represent my work at LexMedia by our website (lexmedia.org) which I manage. Take a look, and if you live in Lexington, check out the three channels we produce.

Hi Harry - I apologize as this is not the appropriate forum but all email attempts have bounced. I wanted to notify you that Reeling is now available at PegMedia.org for download - would this be a preferable avenue? You could have the episode faster...

Great blog by the way!

Hi Harry,

This is what I'm getting:

harry@forsdick.com:
74.208.5.4 does not like recipient.
Remote host said: 421 invalid sender domain 'reelingreviews.com' (misconfigured dns?)
Giving up on 74.208.5.4.
I'm not going to try again; this message has been in the queue too long.

From your lex email as well. I sent this off to my web hosting peeps, although the error implies its your end not liking something (forgive me, not a guru on this stuff).

In any event, I see someone at Lex downloaded our most recent show - we had also mailed a DVD and can continue to do that if the download isn't a workable option - I just thought it would save time and money - it'd be great if a 'fresh' show could be broadcast Thursday night as opposed to a week later....

Best, Laura
