The idea comes from thinking about the future of journalism and the fact that everyone now is creating so much content. We’re flooded with Tweets, YouTube videos, Flickr photos and everything else. Everyone can be a « reporter » when an event happens. But not everyone is a « journalist » — making sense of an issue and giving the context. So we built a system to help people do this, take the best of social media and make it into a story — to « storify » it. The word itself is actually in the dictionary, and also comes from my AP days when editors would send messages to bureaus asking them to « storify » something.
