Thomson Reuters hosted a NewsMaker event on the present economic crisis and in addition to it’s regular text, streaming video and picture coverage, they opened up their doors and minds to social media.
In addition to making live and edited video content available worldwide over the web, myself (@Documentally) and Mike Atherton (@sizemore) were given unprecedented access to the event and asked to utilise some of our favorite social media apps in order to facilitate conversations around the day.
In addition to the following places I will no doubt attempt to blog what else we did as soon as i know what exactly what it was. 😉
Documentally on Twitter.. Phreadz.. 12Seconds.. Qik.. Plurk.. and Seesmic
Sizemore on Twitter.. 12Seconds.. and Seesmic
(Video sadly no longer available)

Excellent work to both you and Sizemore. The inclusion of Social Reporting will be the way forward. Ground breaking stuff!
Congratulations on bringing politics to social media (or vice versa) in an unprecedented way. Simply brilliant. Thanks.
Thanks for all of the comments guys. It was nice of the @downingstreet twitter dude to give @documentally and @sizemore a shout out.. a lot of traffic came from that direction.

Excellent – Much Kudos Christian.
Hugely impressed with this project and very I’m glad that you and Mike(@sizemore) used the arcane acts of JFDI.
An amazing inspiration and a real world example of Social Media Reportage. I really like the linking up of all the tech, with Twitter, qik, blogs, Seesmic, Phreadz et al.
Keeping it real. That is the order of the day.
All my best,
good work Christian!
