This is an interesting video of a talk by the Guardian's award winning journalist Paul Lewis . When every mobile phone can record video and take pictures, everyone is a potential news source. Lewis talks about two stories that give us a glimpse into the future of investigative journalism .

 

Paul Bradshaw has written a great piece on Lewis's work in the excellent Online Journalism Blog.

Thoora: The Intersection of Aggregation, Search & Curation

Thoora: The Intersection of Aggregation, Search & Curation | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

This is a great tool for curators!

 

Intro:

 

"With a Web full of stuff, discovery is a hard problem. Search engines were the first tools on the scene, but their rankings still have a hard time identifying relevance the same way a human user would."

 

Excerpt:

 

Digging For Content

 

Thoora was founded in 2008, and it originally launched as a real-time news aggregator, which we covered back in 2009. But this new iteration is about much more than scanning the news.

 

This is a toolkit for users to explore and research topics, and it learns more about them as its users sort out what matters to them. It is a social tool - users can share topics, and the Thoora site features highlights - but the purpose of the tool is to turn up the most relevant content on the topic, no matter how deeply it's buried in the Web.

 

"We like to say that we're at the intersection of aggregation, curation and search," says Carrie Shaw, head of product at Thoora. As far as users are concerned, that's a good description, but the real value of Thoora comes from the learning algorithms at work behind the scenes. As users create topics, discover content and clean up the results, the Thoora engine gets better at recommendations.
