The instant online snowstorm photo gallery you created for the Chicago Tribune
In the second of my two posts about Chicago’s first real snowfall of the winter, I want to call out readers and social media friends for their help in documenting this week’s storm and its effects.
Last year, the Groundhog Day Blizzard of 2011 was really our first social media storm — and a compelling case for how social media can be helpful.

And earlier this week, I responded as a reporter to the common question of why news organizations report so much about big impending weather events.
Today, I just want to tip my hat to Trib Nation and your fast camera work.
The Tribune social media team of Scott Kleinberg and Amy Guth created an online photo gallery using Olapic at chicagotribune.com that updated each time someone tweeted a photo of Chicago’s Jan. 12-13, 2012, snowstorm with the hashtag #SnowNTell.
And boy, did you come through.
Great work, all. Thanks for the images.
