Archiving John Walsh's comments on Storify

A reminder that after tweeting general thoughts and quotes from ESPN's John Walsh on Tuesday, you're now being asked to create an archive page of them on Storify. You were each asked to tweet at least 10 times under the hashtag JohnWalsh. When you create your Storify page, you may use two of your tweets or all of them. Or you may use a mixture of your tweets and others' -- if you trust their veracity. I am requiring each of you to write at least a strong, big paragraph of text to open the page, and to walk up/explain some additional social media with your own text. Also remember that Jason will be posting some pics, with captions, to Flickr for you to pull into your Storify template. (Jason, please put a comment below this post to let us know how to access your pics.) and Jessica will be publishing audio -- some clips, and perhaps a longer feed -- to SoundCloud, for possible embedding on your page. (Jessica, please note in a comment below how students can find these on SoundCloud.) All of you should be using good judgment, as you would when writing a story, so that you don't slander anyone with your posts. And all of you should be archiving only what you believe to be absolutely accurate. Once you've completed and published your Storify page, please link to it below, so I can easily find it to grade it. This counts as an in-class story assignment. Thanks!

Jason, Jessica, thanks for your photo and audio posts, and for your quick turn-around on these.

A couple of points:

Jason, please post a caption and a photo credit for your group of pictures, as you would for a news assignment.

Jessica and class -- please be careful when using tiny audio clips taken from a larger session with our invited guest, that the clip doesn't misrepresent the larger point of what was said. I caution you, for instance, in the "what is print" joke; the comments that followed that should be included to put it into context, if it is used. Same for the "don't work at ESPN" comments, which Mr. Walsh elaborated on later to make clear he meant students fresh out of college would be better off working at a smaller organization, where they could accrue lots of clips, than at a larger one, where they would have less of an impact.

Gotchya, Chris. The photos are now a "set," titled Dec. 4, 2012. The caption and photo credit are available once you click the link. Photos are more accessible this way.

Chris, just wanted to let you know that Storify limits your word count in the top paragraph section. So there ends up being room for only about two sentences.

Sean and I had a problem with this, when on your storify account searching on the flickr tab for photos make sure you click the tab "user" and search for "jtruiter" otherwise nothing comes up under basic search.

Allie -- the limit on the two sentences is the subhead area of Storify. There's plenty of room for text below that. See: http://storify.com/harveyonline/fox-terriers
