Researchers mine 2.5M news articles to prove what we already know

Researchers mine 2.5M news articles to prove what we already know | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
A group of British researchers recently analyzed 2.5 million newspaper articles in order to prove that new data analysis techniques, such as machine learning and natural-language processing, can accurately classify media content.

This research underscores the common big data maxim that knowing the right questions to ask is now the biggest challenge in gleaning insights from data. It’s increasingly easy to get data, analyze it and visualize it, so humans really just need to hypothesize and be able to explain the results. (This also seems like a good place to plug ScraperWiki as a great source for gathering potential research data from websites.)

Organizing P2P Organizations

Organizing P2P Organizations | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Security, dignity, civic/legal/moral equality, justice, education, love, fun…all these are common-sense, plain language values that almost every sane person shares. This is where any thought about the politico-economic arrangements of society, especially the “commons”, should begin. We should build up from these in the simplest and most direct fashion possible. And perhaps with as little theory and philosophy as possible.

Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir - based on Virtual Collective Empathy?

Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir  - based on Virtual Collective Empathy? | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Britlin Losee was a breakthrough for Whitacre's musical creative mind, not only through her dazzling admiration to the artist but most important through her deeply intimate and spontaneous endeavor. Her sensational YouTube video message is a load of emotional cues. This young girl inspired what is now referred to as Eric Whitacre's virtual choir. The hundreds of vocalists who responded to Whitacre's online appeal had to follow his "silent" directing gestures and provide their own tinge to the performance. Thus, the psychological phenomena underlying such amazing virtual collective action are worthy to be addressed.

How to build a killer content marketing strategy « Content Marketing Blog by Newsvend

How to build a killer content marketing strategy « Content Marketing Blog by Newsvend | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

All of a sudden, content marketing is bandied about everywhere online. But what does it really take to build a killer content marketing strategy?

 

Excellent article with some great take-aways for companies looking to drive more leads through online activities, especially content marketing. I particularly liked the quote from Hubspot:

 

Add more content

According to inbound marketing company Hubspot, businesses that add at least 20 articles a month to their website get five times more traffic than those businesses that write at most once a week.

 

I also liked the chart showing the broad range of content marketing you could be doing aligned along an axis of inexpensive and easy to expensive and time consuming.

Collective Intelligence

Collective Intelligence | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

As all the people and computers on our planet get more and more closely connected, it's becoming increasingly useful to think of all the people and computers on the planet as a kind of global brain.

 

THOMAS W. MALONE is the Patrick J. McGovern Professor of Management at the MIT Sloan School of Management and the founding director of the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence. He was also the founding director of the MIT Center for Coordination Science and one of the two founding co-directors of the MIT Initiative on "Inventing the Organizations of the 21st Century".

 

Pretty much everything I'm doing now falls under the broad umbrella that I'd call collective intelligence. What does collective intelligence mean? It's important to realize that intelligence is not just something that happens inside individual brains. It also arises with groups of individuals. In fact, I'd define collective intelligence as groups of individuals acting collectively in ways that seem intelligent. By that definition, of course, collective intelligence has been around for a very long time. Families, companies, countries, and armies: those are all examples of groups of people working together in ways that at least sometimes seem intelligent.

Sources and Tags: Dennis O'Connor's Curating Secrets | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

There's no question that Dennis O'Connor has found much success on Scoop.it. It wasn't all coincidental, though. Dennis shared with us two of his best curation secrets and tricks:

 

1. Develop multiple sources for your topics
It's important to carefully think through the keywords that you set for your topic so that Scoop.it can crawl the web and provide you with interesting and relevant content and inspiration. In addition to taking full advantage of this, Dennis also uses other tools like Twitter, StumbleUpon, and Prismatic to find content to share on Scoop.it. Once he finds the content he wants to share with his audience, he uses Scoop.it as his social media hub to add value to that content and share it everywhere.

 

2. Tag your posts
Dennis takes a lot of time to tag each of his posts. This allows him, he explained, to assemble publications based upon his tagged topics. When he's using his information on Scoop.it for his E-learning classes, it's easy for him to filter his Scoop.it pages based upon different subjects and easily compile a list of posts and articles on appropriate topics to provide to his students. Something interesting that Dennis does with his tagged articles is to pull them by subject and create "special editions" of his topics on his blog for special classes and events that he is teaching.

Knoco stories: 50 shades of KM - online mind map | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

"Following my recent post on "50 shades of KM", I have created this online mindmap to try to map out some of the sub-domains under the Knowledge Management umbrella.

 

You can view this map online here, and if you are a mindmeister user, I believe you can edit it (I am a bit hazy about how the editing works)

 

I have almost certainly left out areas where you have more knowledge than me, so please feel free to edit the map, if you can work out how to do it.

 

I have omitted the whole area of KM implementation, as I am trying to look at the topic itself, rather than how you introduce it."

   If you never took the opportunity to read these almost 14 year old 95 theses, it is about time. They more or less regulate the entire Internet and give you the directions you need to change your: business model, branding, marketing approach, customer orientation, community building, sense of humor, and humility.

Social Learning and Knowledge Management

Social Learning and Knowledge Management | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
For about five years around the turn of the century most of my days were spent helping clients manage their knowledge. Back in 2000 knowledge management (KM) was really big. Every year I’d head off to Amsterdam for the obligatory industry conference, KM Europe. We even had our own home grown conference, KM UK, with pretty much the same people but with less impressive venues. Then suddenly things went quiet – KM Europe was suddenly cancelled in 2005, KM UK limped along (and is still going today). KM had lost its way. The promises hadn’t been fulfilled. Of course KM just didn’t disappear overnight – it just degraded gracefully. One client, a very large UK multinational, shed their KM teams and announced that KM was now ‘embedded in the business’.

KM still goes on but it’s likely to be on the margins and not essential for peak organisational performance whereas in 2000 KM really was positioned as a game changer.

So what happened?

The Value of Our Digital Identity

The Value of Our Digital Identity | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Increasingly, we are living double lives. There is our physical, everyday existence. And there is our digital identity, the sum of all the digitally available information about us. As this information grows in volume and variety, the picture of us that it creates is becoming surprisingly complete. And valuable.

 

For organizations, the opportunities digital identity presents are enormous. Applications that leverage personal data can boost efficiency, help focus research and marketing efforts, and spur the creation of personalized products and services that, in turn, spur revenues. For consumers, the benefits are compelling, too: faster service, lower prices, and products better suited to their needs, to name a few.

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, December 20, 2012 12:23 PM

The Boston Consulting Group did a survey among 3000 customers. The main conclusions are that, although the economical benefits can be enormous, they will not be realised if people do not want to part with their data. And increasingly people do not want to unless sufficient privacy controls are in place and the benefits are clear to them. This, I am sure, also applies to organisations that provide learning opportunities, such as universities. They too need to act responsibly, in transparant ways and, most importantly, give the user control over his or her data. Universities and commercial elearning providers talk more and more about learning analytics, wanting to know all they can about learners online behaviour, but I hear nothing about privacy other than offhand remarks.

Are You Doing Content Marketing All Wrong?

Are You Doing Content Marketing All Wrong? | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
Content marketing has been hailed as ‘King’ for some time now. Content marketing is one of the strongest online marketing tools but for many small businesses, knowing how to use content effectively...

 

The author of this article presents a great case for how to use content marketing. I particularly liked his ideas about using to educate your clients, customers, contacts, connections, followers, and network.

 

Do those who follow you trust you? Do they hang on your every word? Do they see you as a reputable fair source of information and advice within the niche you serve?

 

Leveraging content to make sales, nurture leads, and find opportunities is solution selling in a digital age. It's about asking questions, providing answers, solving problems, and doing it in a non-sales manner - more from the perspective of coaching and consulting.

 

Do you have a success story about how you've leveraged content to build a relationship?
