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.
- Nuzzel feed for Newsletter (my facebook + twitter feed)
- Mediashift article about journalism conference (#AEJMC17) 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.
- I find a Storify that sums up the conference

4. I go to TinEye and wonder, “Will this work with gifs?” I pick one of my favorites, Jimmy Cagney in Public Enemy.
I upload it to TinEye and, yes, it does search gifs. Here are the results.
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:
