Another important tip was to plan ahead and think about what kind of multimedia package you want to make, and not think of the web as a place you put the 'left-overs' of a story.

The most important take-away I got from Rosa's presentation is that, when possible, give away your content...that doesn't mean work for free, but once something is produced and up on your news organization's website, make it available for other people in your community. In the case of the audio slideshow of Zaballa's kidney donation that I just produced, that meant finding a way to make it embeddable so that other people could put it up on their own websites or blogs (and we did! ).
