Reporting has always been about digging for facts, finding people to talk with, and gathering visual and aural accounts. Now that broadband is widespread, the tools have changed.
This Saturday, I’ll be in South Florida teaching an Online News Association workshop on where to go and what to use to mine, crowdsource, and distribute stories. It’s part of ONA’s free all-day Parachute Training program. Today’s the last day to register.
As I put the finishing touches on my talk, I’d like to know:
- Which tools and methods are most effective for you? Twitter and Facebook for querying, discussing, and linking are two. Others?
- Are there specific tasks you want to figuring out? For example, how to filter through many streams of information to find gold?
