I have been having a play with Storify, which is a platform to pull in material from public sources to create a story.
And this is what I came up with: a comment piece on Slutwalks.
I don’t think that using Storify actually saved me time in the end to write my post, as it’s in Beta at the moment and I found it a bit clunky to move the pieces around. But, I can see that if you were liveblogging an event it would be a brilliant way of pulling in tweets, video clips and images into a chronological stream. Or, I also think it would work as a kind of notepad to plonk articles on different subjects that interest you for future reference.
I also recorded a report on Slutwalk London for the Pod Delusion podcast (about 11.25 mins in).
UPDATE (21:10pm BST 17/6/2011): Storify tweet to tell me: ”You can select individual elements and use the arrow keys to move them around - we are adding a help menu for shortcuts”
