Link: Streamlining mobile journalism

Zac Echola lists online services
to organize mobile workflow

Zac Echola has an impressive post on tools for streamlining mobile news gathering and newsroom work flow. The tools—mostly free programs such as Google Calendar and Reader (both of which I recommend highly, especially the sharing feature), Ning and—can help reporters, photographers and editors keep track of their work and each other on the run. Today’s post is the first of two parts.

Echola says:

“In order to truly become a mobile newsroom, internal communication becomes much, much more important. The first post in this series deals with how to build an internal communication infrastructure. It will help reporters stay on top of their sources and help editors stay on top of what their reporters and other editors are working on. The second post will deal with how to radically transform your news gathering process, generate more traffic and discussion on your sites and build better, more relevant top-tier products.’‘
