Update: I’ve added some digital storytelling links to the end of this post (more to come).
Update: Thanks to Steve Klein for curating today’s digital storytelling examples provided by my tweeps. And thanks to Mindy McAdams (I lost count of how many examples she provided) and others who responded with examples. I will be blogging more on this topic, with links to examples in the blog and sorted by topic. But right now I am unwinding in the canyons of southern Utah.
Update: The workshop is over. Thanks to all who shared examples. I will update later with links to the examples, but you should be able to see most of them on the Twitter hashtag or the liveblog replay.
I’m leading a workshop today on digital storytelling and mobile strategy for a meeting of editors of Pioneer Newspapers.
I will be asking on Twitter for examples of different types of digital stories, using the hashtag #digitalstory. I will be collecting those examples in this liveblog:

This post has links to mobile strategy posts I will be citing in the workshop.
Here are my slides for the workshop:
These are some links I used in the workshop (or gathered for possible use) and some links submitted by Journal Register and Pioneer editors. Some are not necessarily great examples, but I present some routine examples to show that small staffs can use these tools and that they can and should be used routinely:

Examples of lists as an alternate story form:
Examples of still photography used in ways that take advantage of web technology:
Panoramic photo of Inauguration (zoom in to see how clearly you can see President Obama and the people behind him).
Jay Westcott’s time-lapse photos from Redskins-Cowboys game.

Flooding Crowdmap from the Ellensburg Daily Record
TBD examples of breaking news live blogs and community engagement:
