OMG! I have only done one of these, folks! Still, Benet and I chatted last week about it. She wanted to know why I chose to capture the discussion using Storify and how I chose which tweets to use. The answer to the first question was "homework," I told her, referring to my graduate-school independent study effort this summer. As for the second question, I tried to use tweets from as many Twitterers as possible, while ensuring to keep the story moving.
Benet, online managing editor of the Business Aviation section of Aviation Week, agreed to hold off writing about my Storify conquest until I could duplicate it at least once or twice. I thanked her for calling and for her leadership of the task force and stewardship of its daily blog. Frankly, I'm not sure I knew of the blog before getting her email last week. That's OK – I am now. I spent more than three hours one night last week soaking in its content and printing most of its postings dating back to December. I also bookmarked for further study more than 150 links to matters related to digital journalism, conferences, social media, multimedia, technology, blogging, training, etc.
The task force's blog also introduces visitors to people of color who are blazing trails in digital journalism, entrepreneurship, blogging and branding. It's all very inspiring and I'll be visiting NABJDigital regularly from now on.
