Ever heard of Storify? It's a great way to collect tweets, posts, and other social media blurbs and photos into a single story about an event.
So, of course, I Storified the Great Basin Conference this year. I only did this to highlight the fact that I was about the only one (with one notable exception) that was tweeting the conference. Why tweet you ask? Well, I had more than a few conversations on Twitter regarding some of the things I tweeted. It was a way to engage others that couldn't be there but had valuable input regardless. Check out Twitter if you haven't. It's a great academic tool is used properly. Just don't follow sports figures and celebrities. You'll regret it in the morning.
This week I'll be posting more about what I saw at the conference. Come back if you're interested.
Thanks for reading and I'll see you in the field, or on Twitter!
