Toronto’s ScribbleLive launches new version

Journalism-friendly content management system ScribbleLive, a Toronto
start-up, hopes to change the way news articles are written.

The program is designed to give journalists a wide range of upload options: flexibility is key for on-the-ground reporters covering events, natural disasters or sports, where computers aren’t the ideal tool.

Journalists can upload content — text, audio, video, photos and comments — to story pages and easily add to developing stories in real time. The latest version allows users to update or edit a ScribbleLive story via email, Twitter, SMS or even by leaving voicemails that will be posted on the site.

Technology blog Tech Vibes reports that ScribbleLive is used by Reuters, Hearst, The Score and Citytv. Newspapers like The Toronto Star are also experimenting.
