Frontline’s Year-Long Look at the Digital Nation

PBS’ Frontline has been awarded a $1 million grant from the Verizon Foundation for a multi-platform initiative called “Digital Nation: Life on the Virtual Frontier.”

Digital Nation will explore the impact the Web and digital media have on our lives in the 21st century. The year-long project will unfold through a series of online video reports and user-submitted stories that will springboard to a national PBS television broadcast next winter.

The project is headed by Producer/Director Rachel Dretzin and reported by correspondent Douglas Rushkoff. They give a preview in the video below:
