Robin Good's curator insight, March 30, 2014 1:37 PM



This short but quite interesting video update looks at emerging news curation apps designed to gather and select the most relevant news for their users. 

Circa's David Cohn, Inside's Jason Calacanis and Newsy's Jim Spencer provide key insight into what their news discovery services are offering and how they use curation to achieve this result.  


The video covers also the value of curation over original journalism and issues of copyright and fair use.


Interesting. Informative. 7/10

I cannot use my scoop.it because I am following you and I do not have adobe flash installed, and I do not want adobe flash installed. But the video will not let me access my scoop.it.

Cigarette smoking has decreased over 20% among American adults since the 1960s. This doesn’t mean, however, that we’ve turned our back on our addictive tendencies. Instead we’ve found other vices to consume us.

Hali Aileen Barron's comment, August 31, 2014 11:19 AM

Going through a paradigm shift into the technology era definitely has multiple changes and reactions to such technology when it comes to the human brain. Such as constantly using technology from the time we wake up to when we go to bed. In this article, “8 ways Tech has completely rewired our brains” by Rebecca Hiscott shows how even when we sleep we dream differently. Showing how individuals that grew up with black and white televisions which more so dream in black and white to the younger generation who dream in color due to our progress in technology. This distinct example shows how the paradigm shift for our generation is just beginning.
