Talk about a tangible new skill to start using today. I just returned from a great workshop by the Knight Lab called "Up your storytelling game with these free tools for journalists."
We learned about:
* Timeline, which is an easy way to build beautiful timelines quickly. So quickly and easily, in fact, that I built a timeline of the Timeline workshop live while watching the workshop. See below.
* SoundCite, which allows you to insert audio clips directly into your text, like this clip from the workshop.
* twXplorer, a new way to search Twitter, broken down by common terms, hashtags and links related to the term you want to search.
