  • I’ll mention Ushahidi as a new tool with great possibilities for mobile engagement.

  • I’ll encourage questions during the webinar, but will also field them, time-permitting, at the end.
  • I’ll end with a discussion of how the culture of newsrooms is one to get the job done on the big story (this photo is from the Cedar Rapids flood of 2008). We need to take the same no-excuses approach to mobile-first strategy.
