Join us on February 11th at TechSoup for what’s sure to be a great session with Burt Herman, co-founder of Storify. Burt will walk us through how to tell great stories using Storify and share examples of what individuals and organizations are doing on the site. Burt is also the founder of Hacks/Hackers, a worldwide organization bringing together journalists and technologists. He previously reported from around the world for The Associated Press over a 12-year career, heading AP's office in Korea and founding a bureau covering the five countries of former Soviet Central Asia. (Read more about him and Storify on their about page.)
