NewsTrust assignment

I want to thank Rory O'Connor for the terrific presentation/workshop he led on NewsTrust today. As promised, here, in writing, is what I'm going to ask of you for the rest of this week into Monday.
  • You may put your blogging on hold. Exception: I asked each of you to post a blog item about NewsTrust in advance of today. If you haven't done that yet, please do so now.
  • O'Connor has asked us to submit (and rate) at least one story a day to NewsTrust on the featured topic, the global economy. A lot of you are very good at scouring for information from mainstream and non-mainstream news sources, the Web sites of nonprofit organizations and the like, so this is a chance to put your skills to work. Please rate a few stories that are already on NewsTrust, too.
  • You've all been very busy with pulling together your final projects. So I'll give you a chance to catch your breath on Monday by spending the last hour submitting a story or two to NewsTrust and rating articles.
Have a good weekend.
