"How The Huffington Post ate the Internet..."

This is a long read but a worthy one: one that mixes entrepreneurship, publishing and the story of the Web itself.

It's fascinating to see that the starting point for what became a controversial success but an undisputed revolution for publishing is the social web. Michael Shapiro does a great job at explaining how the HuffPost started from a network problem: how to connect people with stories.

A problem that curators all feel sympathetic with.

5 (less traditional) ways to create and share knowledge online

5 (less traditional) ways to create and share knowledge online | curation | Scoop.it

The communication of knowledge and ideas is intrinsic to the human condition. Our earliest ancestors had a rich oral tradition, through which they passed on what they knew about the world, often across great distances.

 

Today, the avenues available to our quest to gain and share knowledge are boundless, but I’d like to share with you five of my own personal favorites.

I love it when others share information with me, whether it be business, political, in which I am not all that much into, but it still helps to know what's happening in the world of politics, or whether it be history of old or new, knowledge is the key to life and especially education.

Conversation Agent: The Five Rs of 21st Century Content Curation

Conversation Agent: The Five Rs of 21st Century Content Curation | curation | Scoop.it

Interesting post by Valeria Maltonia where she touches upon what I call the curation cycle (something we're trying to address with the various features of Scoop.it). This is not just about publishing: discovery is tightly linked to that as well, hence the need for research, etc...

"Why do I constantly update my Google Reader RSS feeds? Adding categories, fine tuning reading lists, then upsetting them all over again when I stumble upon several great sites. That's because I rely on information discovery to push my own thinking."

A Curator Code to recognize curators' authorship

A Curator Code to recognize curators' authorship | curation | Scoop.it

Yesterday, Maria Popova (@brainpicker), one of the Web's prominent curators proposed the idea of a curator code.

As she's said before, curation is a form of authorship and should be recognized as such.

Hence the need for this code to improve the way we attribute content.

Hello Guillaume, as I wrote in my short piece about Curator's Code, you and Maria should get together and see if there is a simple way to make the two bookmarklets work together, as for now they don't. Have you tried?
Guillaume Decugis's comment, March 11, 2012 9:48 AM
Hi Robin. I just talked to her yesterday on that matter in Austin. We're going to have a look at it. Keep you posted!

Is Medium a way for new bloggers/authors to find their voice by mixing it alongside famous ones? | curation | Scoop.it

"We’re rethinking publishing and building a new platform from scratch. This is a preview." 

 

Interesting to see how Twitter co-founders' (Evan Williams & Biz Stone) new initiative - Medium - will develop into.

 

From what I could read - for instance on This Happened to Me - it seems to be a way to mix contributions from several authors on some editorialized collections. I set up a title, you can contribute.

Martin (Marty) Smith's comment, June 7, 2013 11:09 PM
This post is related to your post about should social networks curate their own content. A: No and They Can't. The fire hose is too large, the speed of content development too fast and the old "editorial" stance too dead to play gatekeeper. There won't be any rekindling of the "mother may I past'. All "programed" content is becoming free form and WE are the schedulers, curators, and,l thanks to tools like Scoopit, capable of curating our own lives thank you very much :).

Entropy Is Our Content Marketing Future
Guilluame Decugis has some great insights. I wrote about how disruptive platforms were to "websites" and by extension any other for of information aggregation several years ago (platforms vs. websites http://scenttrail.blogspot.com/2011/09/internet-marketing-platforms-vs.html ).

Now I think platforms are in danger. Platforms aggregate User Generated Content. That aggregation creates a virtual cycle - the bigger it gets the bigger it gets and faster and faster.

Entropy is what will undo even the most stalwart platform. When I wrote How Entropy Is Creating Web 3.0 Right Under Our Noses (http://scenttrail.blogspot.com/2012/11/how-entropy-is-creating-web-30-right.html ) I wanted to share a LESS defined and more TAGGED future.

Look at the Huffington Post. As they push the boundaries of content co-opting more and more writers into their fold they also begin to untangle their own web. As any platform reaches some "point of diminishing returns" point it must begin to eat itself.

Once any website is HUGE becoming that much more dominant doesn't make financial sense. Sure there are virtual cycle rewards. The compound interest of the web is LINKS and the bigger you are the easier links are to accrue.

As any content play becomes HUGE its ability to create a relevant relationship with any new or existing customer is under greater stress. The Huffington Post can keep adding writers but then you are just reading my blog with their masthead (makes no sense and adds no value).

Our old friend entropy says Huffington is about to regress to some lesser mean In fact, I think the creation of mega-platforms as a concept (despite my love for it up until TODAY lol) is over.

Let's call our emerging "lean content" trend rich mobile snippets with gamification. By mashing up what is already out there in the water tomorrow's hubs will curate in multiple dimensions: writers, keyword density and rich tagged snippets. All of this curating will create more free-formed "mesh-like" structures (to quote Lisa Gansky).

What is the difference between a mesh and a platform? Platforms aggregate UGC, curation and content creation to a PLACE. Meshes are less proprietary. Meshes will trap anything from anywhere based on the algorithms used.

Being content agnostic but tag specific is a Google-ization of content, a flexible keyword and behavioral (who cares about what content and why) mesh more responsive, open and flexible than even the most aggressive and currently dominant hub (like the Huffington Post).

The future will be as hard on the Huffington Post as it has been on the New York Times. As an aggregator Huffington may have more pivot capacity than their print cousins, but no one ever expects the Spanish Inquisition :).

TED Becomes a Publishing Platform

TED Becomes a Publishing Platform | curation | Scoop.it

"TED has become a publisher (curating content and disseminating it) and a publishing platform (a format designed to attract and disseminate more content). The platform is akin to other new forms of publishing such as blogs or tweets. A TED talk is something that can be described and that gives it informational power.

TED could have done the traditional publishing thing — put up walls and sold exclusivity. Instead, it has chosen to embrace the notion that information has the most value when it is shared widely. Perhaps traditional publishers of other forms of media should take note"

 

 TED is now one of the most powerful and visible brand in the world. Not only because they produce qualitative content, but curate, select and spread ideas they believe in widely.

 

Pretty inspiring. And convincing.

So, who wants to be a publisher ?
