Meet the new boss: Jill Abramson’s NYT ascent and its potential impact on the digital side of the Times

Meet the new boss: Jill Abramson’s NYT ascent and its potential impact on the digital side of the Times | Brand & Content Curation | Scoop.it
The New York Times will have a new leader in the newsroom. Jill Abramson will replace Bill Keller, who is moving to a writing job at the paper. What will her ascent mean for the digital side of the Times?

We can only guess what Jill Abramson’s promotion will mean for the Times’ digital strategy — but to the extent that she’s carved out an outward-facing identity on the subject, it’s been notably pro-web.

Jennifer Preston, former Times social media editor, chimed in after today’s announcement: “Jill has always been highly supportive of our real-time Twitter publishing/curation efforts.”

The Twitter Trap - Basically, we are outsourcing our brains to the cloud. - Bill Keller, NYTimes

The Twitter Trap - Basically, we are outsourcing our brains to the cloud. - Bill Keller, NYTimes | Brand & Content Curation | Scoop.it
Basically, we are outsourcing our brains to the cloud.
My mistrust of social media is intensified by the ephemeral nature of these communications. They are the epitome of in-one-ear-and-out-the-other, which was my mother’s trope for a failure to connect.
I’m not even sure these new instruments are genuinely “social.”

The Google Loophole Has Become The Facebook/Twitter Loophole

First, this action says that spreading virally on social networks like Twitter and Facebook is more important to them than the resulting traffic from Google. And second, this is a strategic bet that they likely believe will result in the most vocal people on the web being less pissed off.

Bill Keller Accuses Me of "Aggregating" an Idea He Had Actually "Aggregated" From Me - Arianna Huffington

Bill Keller Accuses Me of "Aggregating" an Idea He Had Actually "Aggregated" From Me - Arianna Huffington | Brand & Content Curation | Scoop.it
Bill Keller describes HuffPost's offerings as nothing more than "celebrity gossip, adorable kitten videos, posts from unpaid bloggers and news reports from other publications." I wonder what site he's been looking at. Not ours, as even a casual look at HuffPost will show. Even before we merged with AOL, HuffPost had 148 full-time editors, writers, and reporters engaged in the serious, old-fashioned work of traditional journalism.

Exclusive: An Early Look At News.me, The New York Times’ Answer To The Daily

Exclusive: An Early Look At News.me, The New York Times’ Answer To The Daily | Brand & Content Curation | Scoop.it
Tomorrow, all eyes will be on the launch of News Corp's iPad newspaper The Daily, but huddled away in a downtown loft in New York City's meatpacking district a team from betaworks and the New York Times are busy putting together their answer to what an iPad news app should be. The collaboration will be called News.me, and it won't look anything like The Daily. I know because I've been playing with an early version of the app, which I will describe in detail below along with the first-ever published screenshots of the app.

News.me is a social news reading app that presents the news that the people you follow on Twitter are reading, and filters it based on how many times those stories are shared and clicked on overall. It pulls in data from not only Twitter but also bit.ly, the betaworks company that shortens billions of shared links every month. In contrast, The Daily will produce its own articles and videos with a staff of 100 journalists. It is not clear how many social features will be included in The Daily, but the emphasis seems to be more on the original content. We'll find out more tomorrow (I'll be covering the launch).

Could Twitter make me stupid? Absolutely. But I don’t only follow funny cats that speak with poor grammar. Nick Bilton

Could Twitter make me stupid? Absolutely. But I don’t only follow funny cats that speak with poor grammar. Nick Bilton | Brand & Content Curation | Scoop.it
Before I embraced the social flow of information on the Web, the bulk of my news came from the printed newspapers and magazines that arrived on my doorstep. Now this news is sliced and diced by my social circle, with the most important pieces of content from around the Web being presented to me like a neatly wrapped present each time I check my feed.
Could Twitter make me stupid? Absolutely. If I only followed funny cats that speak with poor grammar, I’d be on my way to a vapid state of mind in no time. But I don’t.
