  • "A more stringent copyright regime would probably be a bigger threat to newsgathering than that of any blog. A less cumbersome way for newspapers to head off the threat of blogs would be."
  • Before the event, I went to the site to create the #fairmont5th story and invited about half of the event's guests to participate. Currently, guests must be added individually, which is rather time-consuming for an event like this, with 80 RSVPs. Note: could we combine somehow with EventBrite or the event's TwitVite to simply import the guest list?

    However, once I arrived at the event and logged in to the nifty Whrrl iPhone app, my created story didn't appear anywhere on the app, so I had to create a new one, with no guests. And I quickly discovered that photos and captions posted via Whrrl didn't cross-post to Twitter. So let me get this straight: I have to Tweet a photo and then send it to the Whrrl story separately? That's too much work for this Gen Xer with a bent towards efficiency. I'd much prefer that Whrrl simply be able to import all the Tweets and photos that I've tagged with the event hashtag automatically. Now THAT would be useful!
