Watch Out CNN: New Twitter Search Capabilities Will Rule Breaking News | ReadWrite

Watch Out CNN: New Twitter Search Capabilities Will Rule Breaking News | ReadWrite | Digital Consumption | Scoop.it
If Twitter can now assemble the raw materials of news into a meaningful place to see and understand what's happening anywhere in the world, on any topic, the instant it starts to matter, why would anyone get breaking news from another source?

 

Twitter Tuesday announced new search capabilities that give it the upper hand as a breaking news destination over basically every other news organization on the planet, from newspapers to cable networks to websites and everything in between. 

 

When a new search begins to trend on Twitter, Twitter's new API will send the query toAmazon's Mechanical Turk service, where humans will categorize it to help make it more relevant to readers. Then Twitter can populate its Discover section with live, topical streams of news.

 

If they want to keep up, other organizations that exist to break news need some new ideas, and fast...

We Need Technology to Help Us Remember the Future | Wired Opinion | Wired.com

We Need Technology to Help Us Remember the Future | Wired Opinion | Wired.com | Digital Consumption | Scoop.it
If you want to recall moments in your life, you’ve got thousands of photos and emails to help you. Forgot the details of a news story from last month? Google’s got your back.

-

The high tech dream of lifelogging”—capturing everything important to you—is increasingly becoming real.

But there’s one big area where our digital recall falls short: prospective memory.

Today’s tech helps mostly with retrospective or semantic memory, events or facts we’ve encountered in the past. Prospective memory is different. It’s our ability to remember to remember something—like stopping to grab the dry cleaning on the way home.

As it turns out, this is where our pain really lies.

Sure, it’s embarrassing when our retrospective memory fails, like when you space out on a colleague’s name. But failures of prospective memory can wreck your career or life: Forget to attend a crucial meeting or file a tax document on time and things go downhill from there. Microsoft researcher Abigail Sellen has studied everyday memory lapses, and she found that people didn’t complain much about forgetting the past. What really killed them was forgetting the future. Prospective memory is about getting things done.

Unfortunately, buffing your brain with memory-training tricks won’t necessarily help. Some studies have found that people who are better at remembering facts are actually worse at remembering tasks. Call it the absentminded-professor effect.

Why does prospective memory fail? Partly because it’s tricky to cue. Prospective recall is about doing task A when we’re in place B or at time C. But place B or time C on its own doesn’t always clearly indicate that you have to do something.

The thing with prospective memory,” Sellen says, “is giving you the right trigger at the right time and place.”

I Eat Oatmeal, But I’m Not Friends With It  | Torque, Ltd. | Digital Consumption | Scoop.it

...No. It’s no longer good enough to force the customer to rationalize with their inner self why they’re friends with a laundry detergent. You have to give them another reason to like you, to be an online resource in their daily (or weekly) life, and to serve a need that is above and beyond your actual product benefit.

 

In a word: content.

 

Content marketing is the key to building not only links, but enduring popularity. While some may say that content marketing has been forced upon SEO’ers by Google’s recent updates, it simply flies in the face of human nature NOT to focus on quality content. Which is exactly why Google updated their algorithm in the first place - to get people what they really want....

Spotify's European rival, Deezer, is growing paid subscribers at a faster rate. | Digital Consumption | Scoop.it

A recent report by DigitalMusicNews has shown that Deezer‘s paid subscriber rate is growing faster than that of Spotify.

Deezer has seen a growth of 114% from December 2011 to December 2012, versus Spotify’s 86% growth. This is surprising, given Spotify’s positioning as the #1 paid subscription music service; however, it’s important to remember what has happened in the past year.
