Put A Bird On It: What I Learned About Community Engagement From the Hawk Cam
Using the New York Times’ Hawk Cam as her case study, Emily will discuss the journalistic challenges of covering a live streaming event that required 24/7 monitoring and where the subjects were not available for comment. Without a strategy and content approach the Hawk Cam could have been just another Yule log, as bill Keller, then the executive editor of the times, called it in an essay. But what she discovered instead was an opportunity to leverage the wisdom of the crowds to build an engaged, active community that took the story to unexpected places/levels.
