Take a 360 degree look at the O+ Festival murals

Tania took some photos of this year's murals as they were being painted for the O+ Festival in Kingston and we thought it would be fun to get them in 360 degrees as well.

We posted some to Google Maps.

If you have the StreetView app, you can also see them in virtual reality, which is pretty neat if you can't make it to Kingston (but you should). I always carry a Google Cardboard viewer with me, so if you see me, just ask me. You get a really good sense of the scope of the work.

The festival kicks off with a parade on Friday and runs through Sunday.

DFM chat: What skills will journalists need as their jobs evolve over time?

Digital First Media friends and other journalists, members of the community and fans of journalism are invited to take part in a Twitter chat Wednesday at noon, Eastern Time, to talk about all things journalism.

Today we're talking about the skills needed to keep up with tomorrow's journalism jobs. What skills will you need? What will newsrooms need? How do you keep up?
This is an exercise that's thinking ahead but also one that's looking at today's environment to determine where it's going, and what can we do about it now. Let's be nimble. Also, let's Daydream.

If you want to be in the post chat archive, post a comment in the container or a tweet with the hashtag "#dfmchat" so it can automatically appear below.
