10,000 Words goes to UNITY!


I will be in Chicago next week at the UNITY: Journalists of Color conference where I will speak on multimedia storytelling. All next week, I will be either liveblogging and/or video blogging the conference and as many multimedia journalism-related sessions as possible. I will also be Twittering about UNITY starting July 21 (Follow 10,000 Words here!). I promise to leave no new media stone unturned.

I’ve written about liveblogging before and am considering using either CoverItLive or ScribbleLive which I have yet to test. If time permits, I will also post a conference day wrap up on YouTube and embed the video here. All in all, it promises to be an action packed week.
