As this story shows, it is being used to cover live events of all sorts; it was used extensively by reporters covering the NCAA tournament.
eam Coverage of Events with CoverItLive PublicResource.orgNext week, Tidbits contributor Kim Pearson will be part of a team liveblogging speeches by the three major presidential candidates. Next week, I'll be a credentialed blogger covering speeches by the three leading presidential candidates at the joint conference and expo of the American Society of Newspaper Editors and Newspaper Association of America. While the opportunity to report on the appearances of Sens. McCain, Obama, and Clinton before the nation's newspaper executives is interesting enough, I'm also excited because I'll get to test the capabilities of CoverItLive (CIL) for collaboration and multimedia coverage of spot news.
