Ha… revisited something I wrote from three years ago,
The second point that interests me from a practical point of view is how a combination of twitter/blog/flickr/crowdsourcing can aid the reporter in best reporting the raw facts and then help develop a story. I think the idea of a Twitter network has legs for journalists/editors. Blogs are well proven as are Flickr, YouTube et al – and remember if I hadn't uploaded these pics to Flickr I might never have found out (or it might have taken me longer to find out) that the police were actively deleting digital images in Toulouse on Sunday. For the journalist, the skill is in meshing all these tools together in a meaningful way. link
Ha… Like that was ever gonna happen.
