v6.2.3 - moving along, a point increase at a time

Adieu Storify

Seems like today's news comes in the form of the demise of Storify - a tool that I don't often use, but many in my academic circle tend to love.  The tool allows you to aggregate content from other social media sites, like facebook, twitter, instagram, the web (and more) and put those in collections called...Stories!  I've used it a few times for conferences, but the last time I really used it - according to my most decent stories, was six years ago. I guess the tool wasn't as useful for my own day-to-day work as it is for others.

I've downloaded my stories for posterity (the HTML5 export was so-so).

Here's the announcement(ish):

Storify End-of-Life
