The story I’ll be telling my grandkids.
laurenmichell: I love when an article feels super hopeless and then that perfect source with all the right info basically falls into your lap
laurenmichell: Anyone know how to make the page peel ad rotate? Too busy to think about it at the moment, perhaps a weekend project.
laurenmichell: Haha, let’s do a full-page spread @bradyteufel @dannytree RT can we include an article on this for tomorrows paper? http://bit.ly/cVZNt
laurenmichell: Just got the e-mail alert for Ted Kennedy. (First time in a long time that mainstream media broke it to me before Twitter). RIP
laurenmichell: @magnoli Good job on your coverage of the health care panel. Sooo many comments.
laurenmichell: Off to shoot some photos for the @pacbiztimes!
laurenmichell: I’ve been complaining all day about sources not returning my calls. But then I noticed the 5 voicemails. Apparently it’s just not ringing?
laurenmichell: Check out the great work @gaufre and the @uatrav team has done on their new WordPress site: www.uatrav.com Congrats! #copress
laurenmichell: @andrewspittle By “moderate” do you mean fact-checking? Or just erasing profanity?
laurenmichell: Ah, I hate time differences. Totally missed most of the first TWiC, but there are still a few mins left! Listen here http://bit.ly/twics2e1
laurenmichell: What would journ be like if Knight-Ridder had followed through with its 1994 version of the Apple Tablet? http://bit.ly/9FjY0
laurenmichell: @andrewspittle Is the pio wiki going to be open to the community or internal contributions only?
laurenmichell: You know the summer is over when #copress calls and #collegejourn are weekly again :) Too bad it’s here before I’ve even had a summer break
laurenmichell: Overheard in the #copress call: “I just want the crickets to stop, please!”
laurenmichell: Finally getting great interaction on @mustangdaily Facebook page http://is.gd/2s0xe I seriously suggest adding a FB fan box to your sites
laurenmichell: Win a new Canon 5DMKII (or $2500 Gift Cert) from @OPGear & Scott Bourne. Pls RT. Details here: http://bit.ly/BqU8N
laurenmichell: @copress re: CMS, @emorywheel was designed by Red Clay Interactive http://is.gd/2qTbV (according to the footer). Custom CMS?
laurenmichell: @LatinoToday You can try this http://is.gd/2qymM for updating your Facebook/Twitter status at the same time
laurenmichell: @Walldo D’oh! If only Premiere had spell check. I’m re-exporting it right now… #copress
laurenmichell: RT @glassesgeek It’s amazing that a community of developers (Firefox) has advanced Web browsers 10 times more than a billion dollar company.
laurenmichell: @ericabashaw Definitely not! Our reporters barely know how to hold a video camera, much less close caption a vid. They’ll have to learn soon
laurenmichell: Thanks for the last minute interview @velanches. http://bit.ly/xbW7L If I’d known you’re on Twitter I would have been in contact earlier
laurenmichell: @maxcutler We didn’t make a slideshow version, but we do have a transcript. I can have a slideshow version of it in the next few days
laurenmichell: @BofA_help I have questions about your e-commerce system on a site I’m designing for a client. After setting up SSL how do I sync bank acct?
laurenmichell: @andrewspittle Thanks and DUDE, andsp.net short url = awesome.
laurenmichell: @bradyteufel Just did a little experiment for my article: 17 minutes to close caption 1 minute of video in Adobe Premiere.
laurenmichell: Woo! RT @copress: New video by @laurenmichell: A case for innovation in college newsrooms http://tr.im/wHqX
laurenmichell: RT @mustangdaily If we post our editorial calendar every week would you (readers) comment & suggest angles/sources for upcoming articles?
laurenmichell: RT @greglinch And check out the sweet redesign!RT @copress: Introducing Managed Hosting, the next phase of CoPress http://bit.ly/vDIOm
laurenmichell: @danielbachhuber I get the pattern on the team page now. It’s whichever way we’re facing, yeah, yeah? I thought about it all night
laurenmichell: @andrewspittle Well Miles’ photo was flipped horizontally so now I’m all confused. That must not be the pattern. I still haven’t slept yet
laurenmichell: hah RT @greglinch What did the <div> with an id attribute say to the <div> with no attributes? I thought you had class! #lamehtmljoke
laurenmichell: Hour eleven of the workday. Jamming with @danielbachhuber, @joeybaker, and @andrewspittle on @copress #versionthree redesign.
laurenmichell: @danielbachhuber Soon it’s going to be a 24-hour work day.
laurenmichell: Do you discourage your reporters/editors from posting political/religious affiliation on social media profiles? Why or why not?
laurenmichell: Another After Effects tip! RT @danielrandolph If you push the period button on your number pad the audio will preview from your playhead
laurenmichell: @wez Wow, I’ve never seen such nice pre-made stuff. Do you think that’ll be the new trend?
laurenmichell: Install Lightbox plugin. You know text on images isn’t searchable by Google? RT @omsanche any suggestions for my portfolio? www.omsanche.com
laurenmichell: To hear audio in AfterEffects w/o rendering, hold CTRL (pc) or Command (mac) while you scrub the timeline. Took me forever to figure it out.
laurenmichell: @omsanche Also, you misspelled “journalist” in your logo.
laurenmichell: @codytoshiro @journalistnate I hoard notebooks from journ conferences like no other
laurenmichell: Reminiscing upon my first attempt at WordPress for @mustangdaily this time last year http://rabaino.com/lauren/cms/ My how far we’ve come
laurenmichell: http://twitpic.com/dlf4g I may be a digital journalist but looking through old notebooks to find an interview sure makes me feel traditional
laurenmichell: Interesting RT @mashable: Big news right now: “BREAKING: Facebook To Launch Facebook Lite” - http://bit.ly/B0MtF
laurenmichell: Construction people likely cut my Internet cables. Won’t be fixed until tomorrow evening :( booo
laurenmichell: Internet at home out for 20+ hours and all Charter can’t tell me when it’ll be fixed. I’ll be at school the rest of the night.
laurenmichell: @Umatter2ChtrG I’ve already talked to customer service & you’ll likely give me the same BS. If I wasn’t moving soon I’d switch to AT&T
laurenmichell: Would you ever DM personal information to a “customer service rep” on Twitter? Seems so easy to fake a cust. service account & steal info
