Timeline Tools in the Newsroom

Last week the KDMC-talk listserv had a lively discussion about timeline tools like Dipity, Timeglider and Capzules.

Wendy Norris (Jan '10) an investigative reporter for the Western Citizen created the Complete Ted Haggard Sex, Drugs and Hush Money Timeline.  She used Dipity to create a concise explanation of a saga that lasted for over two years. 

The Seattle Times made timelines with Dipity about the Police Shootings in Lakewood, Wa and Officer Timothy Brenton's memorial procession.

If you'd like to try out timelines for size the Dipity video tutorial is a great place to start.
