I am waiting for a breaking news event to happen while I’m around so I can give Meporter a shot! Also will be interesting to see which news orgs. are the ones who try and adopt/make use of Meporter!
I don’t really think this is that artsy but I guess it’s an interesting idea.
Hope mine is one of them! ;)
I think I find a healthy balance of social media involvement and actual work-related productivity throughout the day! Also in the case of a media job, I think social media can really count as part of the work day’s productivity anyway!
Dang communists. If my dad was a cop in Vietnam, he would not be happy with this – given that he LOVES his sunglasses, lol.
Which are you? I guess I’d be “Busy Betty” distracted, etc, lol. :(
Extremely unfortunate. Way to de-volve, Iran.
My commute is a half hour – which is not long enough to kill me and/or cause me to divorce my yet-to-be-married husband. Is yours?
It certainly tugged at my heartstrings!!!!!! SO CUTE.
Just another item to add on the growing list of events contributing to the demise of our world as we know it, lol.
Oh no! I love cucumbers..
I wonder if micro-recruiting will take off!
So interesting! I think students would definitely be more motivated using those techniques!!
