I was a part of the WKU iMedia team that went to Hong Kong for the Global Editors Network’s NEWS! 2011 World Summit. We were hired to cover the conference and run the social media, the website, conduct interviews, and so on. You can check out our work here:
Here’s a video created by some of my classmates that explains our role at the Summit: http://vimeo.com/westernimedia/hk
From Nashville I flew to Chicago on Black Friday. Then we all met up in ChiTown Airport (you know it as O’Hare International Airport) and we were on our way to Hong Kong.
And on the way, we were blessed to view the beautiful ice and snow of the Bering Strait and northern Russia. Then, our first greeting in Hong Kong was in French. Ha!
