Important article raises the question of an organization's "unified content strategy." Content strategy must go way beyond the website to address organization, accountability, operations and production processes, standards and policies, internal enablement of the numerous "new producers" of content, and centralized management and support of shared elements: tools, infrastructure, content assets. We've only just begun.

Capture, Organize and Publish Your Curated Content Collections with Clipboard

Capture, Organize and Publish Your Curated Content Collections with Clipboard | Content That Sells | Scoop.it

Robin Good's curator insight, April 1, 2013 10:52 AM



In my humble opinion, Clipboard is the best capture and clipping tool for curation work that you can use today.  This is the real Pinterest on steroids. This free web app allows you to easily grab any text, image, area or full web page from any web site and to save it in your collection.


To be specific "you can clip text, photos, animations, videos, or all of the above mixed together. You can clip entire web pages or strip them down to just text. You can drag-and-drop images and text files from your desktop to Clipboard. You can create your own notes directly in Clipboard and save them as clips. You can also - if you are using a Google Chrome browser - bookmark entire PDF web pages (but you cannot clip sections of PDF files)."


The Clipboard browser extensions for Chrome and Firefox and the generic bookmarklet which can work on any browser is a little technology gem, making the capture work an absolute breeze.


Clipboard allows your collections to be set for public or private use, and it makes it easy to invite you other people that you want to contribute to your curation work.


Clips can be tagged, commented, annotated and shared with specific users (via mentioning their name handle). Clipboard collections can be easily shared on all major social networks, or embedded in any web site or blog.


On the display and navigation front good news too. Collections can be viewed in one of three possible modes (tile, item and list view).


Free to use.

Curation: The Future of News Is All About Separating Junk From Gems

Robin Good's curator insight, April 1, 2013 11:39 AM


At the start of 2012 Steve Rubel, EVP of Edelman, published a very interesting slide deck entitled "Insights on the Future of Media" - Volume 1.


In it he analized five key trends that had emerged from his numerous talks with CEOs, startup founders, technology vendors and reporters about what would be the key, most important best practices to emerge in the near future.

The first such practice analyzed in his presentation is "news curation" under the heading "Curate to Dominate.


Steve Rubel writes: "...what I discovered is that vertical curators like SBN may soon play a larger role in how we consume content than many of us may realize.


This has ramifications for both journalists and communicators.


Sports is one of the largest and oldest online interest verticals.The category is dominated by large brands - sites like ESPN.com and Yahoo Sports, which rose to prominence during the 1990s.


Suddenly, however, the edges are fraying.


First, athletes and teams are becoming their own media channels. Beyond that, new curators are moving in and disrupting the business. SBN, for example, rolls up the best independent blog voices covering individual teams into a carefully curated network.


The Bleacher Report, meanwhile, takes a more open, crowd- Jim Bansourced approach. Today its the 12th largest sports site, koff, Vox Media according to comScore.


Both SBN and Bleacher Report are demonstrating that there's a huge opportunity for new media brands to emerge that focus on separating art from junk.


This is all a result of too much content and not enough time."


And if you are asking what's the future of a curator as a paid resource or as a business per se, here is his answer:


"...what about breaking news, which is more of a commodity these days? Can a curator win in news too?


According to the 3.3 million people who follow the MSNBC- owned @breakingnews account on Twitter - the sub-140-character answer is "yes."


That's where we pick up the story. To learn more, I sought out fellow Hofstra University alum Lauren McCullough. She recently joined @breakingnews from AP as a Senior Editor.


...MSNBC has turned it into a 24/7 news operation that curates links faster than anyone else."


Find more valuable insight, names and brands already "walking the talk" on slides 4, 5 and 6 of this very interesting deck  (Insights on the Future of Media - Volume 1, January 2012).

This is why we love these guys. Practical and realistic. Content marketing, especially for bigger orgnizations, is complex, difficult and new. The skills and resources described for the COE are what EVERY content team needs -- just not every day. And the list is undoubtedly not complete.

 

Now that we realize that content is a key enabler -- as well as a constraint -- to go-to-market success, it's time to take a professional approach to content publishing.
