Re-writing News Stories Is Not Content Curation

Re-writing News Stories Is Not Content Curation | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning | Scoop.it

Interesting topic, considering this is an ongoing topic with what is & what is not Content curation. I'll admit I actually agree with Robin Good & his assessment. At the end of the day if all you are doing is paraphrasing or just linking without insight, then why not link to the article and be done with it. 

 

 

Robin Good: Good article by Rex Hammock on RexBlog.com highlighting the confusion arising from using the term curation when it is not really appropriate. 

 

He writes: "Somewhere along the way, the inherently-confusing metaphor of curation being applied to content on the web went from something like, finding relevant content and pointing readers to it to something like, find content on other sites and simply re-write what they say and place it on our site and that’s okay, as long as somewhere you credit the source.”

 

He has several more interesting points. here a few key excerpts from it: "While I believe “curation media” can be a helpful service to readers, the act of writing a story that rehashes another story — without adding some insight or background — is a disservice to all involved.

 

"...I’m not suggesting that the act of sharing articles you run across is anything but good. I’m not even suggesting that websites like Huffington Post or Business Insider are nothing more than re-writing services. (I’m not “suggesting” it, as it’s well known.)

 

This is the bottom line: To be of any value (or to prevent you from appearing foolish), your curation needs to be more than merely re-writing something that has already been re-written one or two times.

 

If you feel the need to do that, just link."

Curated Content Delivery Formats: Beyond News Portals and Magazines

Curated Content Delivery Formats: Beyond News Portals and Magazines | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning | Scoop.it

This article was written by Robin Good, one of our amazing curators on Scoopit. All I can say is it's about as good as it gets on this topic!

 

Intro:

 

Curating content and news is not just about the selection, editing and contextualization of stories about a specific topic or theme, but it is increasingly about how these information items are (collaboratively) gathered, organized, grouped, displayed and in which ways they can be accessed and browsed by those interested in them.

 

For me, one of the most fascinating aspects of this exploding content curation trend, is the speculative exploration of how "curated" content collections could best benefit from alternative and more effective delivery formats than the classic linear, top-to-bottom, chronological, river-of-news sequence.

 

Nothing wrong with this format, but it is a good format only if you want to give relevance to curated news stories in chronological order. Just like most news sources have done until today. The more recent, the higher in the list.

 

But anytime you are working to curate content according to non-chronological parameters, you are off into a largely unexplored and uncharted land.

 

At least for now.

 

As a matter of fact, there are positively more content types than the "breaking news" and the typical curated list, as much as there are a lot more ways to look at a curated set of information items beyond the habitual following of a linear vertical sequence.

 

In this article I lightly explore some of the reasons why I expect an explosion in content curated delivery formats, and then provide an extended list of both existing and new, emerging curated content delivery formats, that I expect you will start to see and use more frequently in the near future.

 

Here is what I see:
