The very first AAJA meet-up in Bangkok is set for Thursday, January 24 at the AP offices. Introducing Storyful: an organization that helps newsrooms find content on social media websites. They partner with ABC News, Reuters and the New York Times, and social platforms such as YouTube.

We’re gathering foreign and local media based in Bangkok to join us. We’re also hoping to get Asiaworks’ Craig Knowles to present his ideas on the use of social media and blogging specifically for the Southeast Asia region.
