Sticky: Event: Liveblogging with CoverItLive’s Keith McSpurren

May 12th, 2009Posted by in Events, Handy tools and technology

UPDATE (May 12) – The session with Keith McSpurren will kick off at 1pm tomorrow – if you’re attending it’s in Room AG03 ground floor, College Building, City university – that’s 280 St John St, London EC1 (map here)

Liveblogging – the format of choice for news sites to cover events it would seem given recent examples.

Times Online did some great work during the G20 protests; the Financial Times’ Alphaville blog has long used a real-time approach for reporting the markets; while Trinity Mirror’s regional titles have joined forces to produce group-wide liveblogs in the past – to name but a view.

Liveblogging tool CoverItLive was first profiled by Journalism.co.uk in April 2008.

Next week its founder Keith McSpurren is in the UK and will be coming to City University in London to talk about the good, the bad and the potential for liveblogging and news.

This is an informal and free event, from 1pm next this Wednesday (May 13).

Spread the liveblogging word.
