Missed #NABJ12? Check Out Storination!

By Benét J. Wilson, DJTF chair & freelance aviation/travel journalist and blogger

We know that everyone couldn’t join us for this year’s fantastic convention in New Orleans.  In a perfect world, we would have had live streaming of the workshops, similar to what they do at the Online News Association’s annual convention.

But since that wasn’t an option due to budget considerations, NABJ went all out with social media.  So many of our members and attendees were on Twitter that at several points last week, we were a trending topic.

Right before the convention, I learned about Storination, a cool web-based tool that allows you to put all the Storifys from a single event — like #NABJ12 — in one place for folks to read and share.  I went on Twitter and begged for a beta code, then sent an email explaining exactly what I wanted to do with the tool. 

I want to thank all those members who did Storifys on key sessions, along with two plenaries, the board meeting and the business meeting.  Click here to see all the Storifys done from New Orleans.  If you did one and it wasn’t included, please email me and I’ll include it. Enjoy!
