Storify: Sites collaborate for better reporting on Strauss Auto closing

Using Storify, an online curation tool, that lets the editor/reporter search selected social networks by keyword or hash, BlockbyBlock took a look at the hyperlocal collaborative scoop between Sheepsheadbites.com and CliffviewPilot.com when local business Strauss Auto closed, leaving an estimated 700 people unemployed. WordPress now has a Storify tool that lets editors create a story directly in a blog or import from an online Storify account. In addition, editors can now add online sources of their own choice to the source material searched.  Nifty!
