Twitter Board for Newsroom
It was nice to see the Boston Globe follow our lead and get a Twitter Board for the newsroom.
OK, a bit tongue in cheek. But ours went up in the Carolina Reporter newsroom this summer.
Also, while they've been up for over a year now, we haven't really shown off our digital signs. I worked on getting these specifically to show off the work on Dateline Carolina, the sign on the right. The left sign shows announcements in both graphical form and a ticker and has a video feed that we automatically switch among CNN, the Weather Channel, ESPN and the local news depending on the time of day. During the academic year, it also switches over from 4-4:30 p.m. to display the nightly newscast produced by Carolina News for local cable.
Thank to the dean and director for the $$.
Now, what I want to do is set up a second one for Facebook and some important local websites. Firefox has a plug-in that allows you to cycle among tabs - but it doesn't refresh the tabs. Suggestions?
