There are so many new tools out there that I can’t absorb even a few of them. But occasionally, something comes along that promises to be useful. Storify allows users to collect pictures, articles, websites, and other detritus from the internet and link it together into an online story.
I could think of dozens of ways to use Storify in arts organizations. What about a presentation for a prospective donor, or background for the media? Or, a website posting giving detail on an upcoming exhibit? The format emphasizes the links, which keeps writing and design minimal. It’s very user-friendly — although based on my limited experiments, using it on a laptop works better than on the iPad at this point.
Here’s my first attempt. I’ll be sharing this with my Seminar students next week — and I’ll let you know how it works. Click on the Fortune cover to begin.
