Sharing via Other Media
- Ustream.com is a great way to live broadcast your experience at the tweetup.
- Storify.com and Scoopit.com are useful if you want to arrange the elements of a story directly from social media elements (including tweets, Flickr images, YouTube videos, etc.)
- Is your mobile device feeling unloved? Maybe it needs some awesome space apps. Great multi-platform list of apps from at @Spacevidcast wiki.
