Breadcrumbs for August

Sometimes it is fun to just tell a small story about the breadcrumbs you follow in the wild, wild Net. Here is one such.

I gather stories every morning for my newsletter. It’s fun. I get to keep my curating hand in good practice. In the end I added three links to today’s Nuzzel newsletter. One was about a journalism conference, one was about the reverse lookup image search engine TinEye, and the last was about a blog about booze in movies. Here’s how that happened. I think we need to share practice. I often have students do a similar breadcrumb exercise for class.

  1. Nuzzel feed for Newsletter (my facebook + twitter feed)
  2. Mediashift article about journalism conference ()  I love these because of the sheer density of useful tools and practical ideas, especially in disciplines like journalism and library science. Education, not so much.
  3. I find a Storify that sums up the conference

 

…and a tweet in the Storify about TinEye, a reverse image lookup tool I had totally forgotten about.

I upload it to TinEye and, yes, it does search gifs.  Here are the results.

25 results – TinEye

Please note that this search engine came up with 25 hits from over 21.2 billion images in 0.5 seconds.

Filtering for the oldest example of a jpg I find one on the site, Boozemovies.

 

P.S. Here are all the links in one place using the ultraneat web archiving tool, Webrecorder:
