  1. Thanks – some valid and useful points. . Would have loved to have read a post without all the tweets plonked in there – don’t think they are particularly useful and they make it hard to read. Maybe one or two particularly insightful or witty ones could work.


    • Thank you Jackie. I think the benefit of using Storify to share a story is the inclusion of many different points of view. I know it’s not the easiest tool to navigate, and the conversation can sometimes be difficult to follow, but I do think it serves a purpose. I am planning to write a post about the panel I participated in. It will have excerpts from my notes, and will also include the Storify tweet stream for those who want to hear from more than just me. I very much appreciate your comment, thank you!
