Take a seat Live Blogging. We will be Storifying the Apple event.

As we know we are hours away from Apple’s launch event of the iPad 2. We can definitely confirm it will something related to the iPad, come’on the event poster is a dead giveaway.

Like most of us, we will be waiting in anticipation.

This year we will be taking a different approach in covering the event, instead of Live Blogging, we will be Storifying, collecting Tweets, Facebook and pictures from the web as the news break. We have been impressed with the power of Storify and how it makes for easy consumption, especially when it’s events related. A perfect case study of this was when the good folks at New Zealand Herald used Storify to collect Tweets, Facebook updates, Flickr photos and Youtube videos of the Christchurch Earthquake.
