Hats off to Molly McDonough of the ABA Journal online and Ron Sylvester of the Wichita Eagle for their whirlwind tour of useful sites for journalists at last week’s SPJ convention. Among their recommendations that I don’t think we’ve mentioned here before:
Qik: Live streaming from your cell phone. Great live news potential. Doesn’t work with all phones.
Cover it Live: Excellent way to do a live chat or live blog with a source or multiple subjects in various locations.
YOUSENDit: Great way to send very large files without having an FTP site.
I can vouch for YOUSENDit–it works like a charm. The full list of 60 sites is online here.
