The 30A Company’s Mike and Angela Ragsdale recently traveled to Moscow, Russia, after Mike was invited to speak at the 3D Journalism conference – Russia’s largest media forum – about “the power of good news.” The goal of the two-day conference was to help Russian journalists, media executives and hyperlocal entrepreneurs grow their brands and revenue streams in a rapidly changing market. Over 1,000 attendees participated in the forum, with hundreds of thousands of professionals and students across Russia watching live broadcasts online.
Here are some videos and photos of this extraordinary city, and just a few of the wonderful people we met along the way:

Following his presentation, Mike sat down for interviews with Russian media:
Mike Ragsdale – создатель портала позитивных новостей 30A в маленьком городке на юге Флориды. У проекта уже более 600,000 подписчиков в Фейсбуке, а деньги он зарабатывает на продажах продукции с логотипом бренда – например, футболок из переработанного пластика.
Мы побеседовали с Майком в рамках конференции “3D Журналистика” о том, зачем людям нужны хорошие новости, и как на новый тренд реагировать компаниям и независимым журналистам, авторам и блогерам.
