Above is a snapshot of my Storify story about Quasi-Con 2012.

You can read the whole thing here.

I first learned about Storify last year while working for a news website, and I’ve watched it take off since then, with many major news organizations posting regularly — it’s a great way to follow the web chatter on elections, protests, and other swift-moving news events. While Storify is primarily used by journalists and news bloggers, I think it’s got a lot of potential to curate social media conversations happening around other community institutions like libraries.

Meanwhile, I also made my first screencast last week! The topic, natch, is about using Storify for library outreach. You can watch my screencast in the little VodPod widget in the left menu bar on this page. Or click here to watch it full-screen on Screencast.com.
