Poynter Online centerpiece on Multimedia Obituaries

Mallary Tenore's months of research on the subject of multimedia obituaries culminated in the centerpiece, Linking to Life with Multimedia Obits, at the Poynter Institute Web site on Jan. 28, 2008.

She addresses linking obits to video, audio and slide shows, as well as obit blogs, Legacy.com's online data base of paid obits from many American newspapers and online tributes.

Mallary also gave the Society of Professional Journalists its first media exposure. The Professional Obituary Writers Workshop scheduled for May 8-11 at The Oregonian in Portland, Ore., was promoted in the centerpiece's comment field.

Thanks, Mallary.
