Creating the People's History of 2010: Accredit Yourself and Start Reporting, Partying, and Schmoozing with the World
What do you plan contributing to the future?
Strong, Free, Social
While some are quick to polarize attitudes about the Games into pro or con, I am convinced that embracing a variety of opinions about the Olympix events is of significant value. While IOC and VANOC policies may be sources of personal frustration, by documenting the people's history of the arts, sports and civic issues around Vancouver, we can effectuate positive change in our community and pass on knowledge for future events.
With this spirit in mind, the True North Media House campaign encourages social media education, aggregation and collaboration. My cohorts and I assembled a toolkit of practical resources to help find, tell, and share stories:
- Social Reporter Toolbox - articles, publishing outlets, journalist workspaces, free events, transportation
- Media Guidelines & Summary of Regulations - best efforts guide-sheet about relevant legislation and regulation
- Official Olympic Links - includes VANOC, IOC, Live Sites, Vancouver, BC, Canada governments, etc.
- The Cans and Can’ts of Media During the Olympics - a best efforts notebook of relevant regulations and laws
- News Desk - firehose of all TNMH self-accredited news feeds also available via RSS and @truenorthmedia
Stellar Work! The lads behind With Glowing Hearts - the Movie demonstrate the importance using creative art to document the social transitons and civic landscape which otherwise go under-noticed. Their ongoing film project includes a segment about the True North Media House evolution which Scales also discusses at Vancouver Access.
Good Idea! Like predictive back-to-school essays, some of my cohorts have published posts about how they will spend their Olympics - consider doing the same. Meet: John Biehler, John Bollwitt, Rebecca Bollwitt, Duane Storey plus the crew at Vancouver Access 2010 who are providing epic info resources for fans and props to event mapmaker 2010VanFan AKA Andrea.
