The Guardian Crowdsourcing Newslists Their Readers Help Make News

The Guardian Crowdsourcing Newslists Their Readers Help Make News | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This post was written by Dan Roberts, National News Director for The Guardian UK


Curated by JanLGordon covering "Content Curation, Social Media & Beyond"


This is a large up step in use of crowdsourcing for a major news organization and will surely be followed by others if it works.


Excerpt:


The newsdesk at the Guardian is planning an experiment in opening its doors.


**The idea is to publish a carefully-selected portion of the national, international and business newslists on a daily blog, which will launch on Monday morning, and encourage people to get in touch with reporters and editors via Twitter if they have ideas.


Obviously, we're not planning to list all our exclusives or embargoed content and we'll also have to be careful not to say anything legally sensitive or unsubstantiated.


**Nonetheless, we think there are lots of routine things that we list every day which might provoke interesting responses from readers: everything from upcoming press conferences, to stories we need help uncovering.

Best Thinkers Series: Is Curation the New Journalism?

This is a reminder - starts in just a few minutes......


If you're serious about content curation or just want to know more about it, you shouldn't miss this.......


An exclusive, live webinar from Social Media Today


October 4th at 12pm EST / 9am PST


Where journalists used to be the trusted agents for reporting on the ground and fact-checking stories before publication, every Web user is now a potential journalist.


And as the deluge of user-generated information gathers strength, finding out what's important to people in their private and working lives becomes more and more challenging. How to sort between truth, half truth and falsehood?


Technical filtering can't (yet) match human capacity to discriminate between useful content and garbage. This is the increasingly vital role of the online curator. The discussion will examine to what extent curation is becoming integral to journalism, and whether bloggers and tweeters can adequately play the the reporting role of journalists.


We'll cover the following questions, as well as your own:


What's the difference between curation and journalism? How does factchecking work in the blogosphere? What are emerging best practices for online curators?


Can the hive mind of the Internet match the formal editorial structure of a traditional news organization when it comes to producing accurate reporting and analysis of current events?


Maggie Fox will host the webinar, her wonderful guests are Steve Rosenbaum and Tom Foremeski. (Bios on the article)
