Content Curation through the Eyes of A Journalist

Content Curation through the Eyes of A Journalist | digital journalism tools and topics | Scoop.it

I was just looking on google+ & ran across this wonderful article. (I don't know why I didn't see it yesterday). 

 

It's full of good observations and information seen through the eyes of  journalist, David Brewer, who is also a media strategist from mediahelpingmedia.org.

 

Here's an excerpt:

 

Who to curate for?

 

It's important to know who is going to benefit from your curation efforts. This will help you decide what to curate, what to invest time and effort in developing, and how to present the resulting material.

 

A journalist covering a specialism or working a beat will be probably find it easier to decide what material to curate.

 

A general reporter may find it more difficult. But all journalists should have areas they are interested in and all should understand the needs of their audience. So gathering material based on your interests and the needs of your audience is a good starting point.

 

"Journalists have been curating content for years. It’s always been an integral part of newsgathering. We may not have called it curation, but we were doing it all the same. In fact curation is an essential part of our job.

Vie nuove per il giornalismo - LIVE, un esperimento che viene dalla Francia

Vie nuove per il giornalismo - LIVE, un esperimento che viene dalla Francia | digital journalism tools and topics | Scoop.it
Il sito web di le Monde sta esplorando due vie promettenti: il Live, un difficile esercizio di equilibrio nel trattamento dell’ informazione a caldo, e una forma di ‘’giornalismo umano’’ attraverso una catena di otto blog iperlocali, lanciati in vista della campagna presidenziale, in un progetto denominato ‘’Un anno in Francia’’ – Due direzioni apparentemente opposte, visto che la prima lavora sull’ attualità immediata e la seconda è la riabilitazione di un giornalismo che si inscrive nel campo della ‘’durata’’, ma l’ esigenza di fondo è la stessa: il giornalismo evolve e deve continuamente reinventarsi – Un interessante articolo di Marc Mentré su Mediatrend.com

Automated News Curation: Create a Killer DIY Hyperlocal Publication in 5 Minutes

Automated News Curation: Create a Killer DIY Hyperlocal Publication in 5 Minutes | digital journalism tools and topics | Scoop.it
For anyone who owns an iPad, it’s no surprise that Flipboard is a breakthrough. The one-year-old application allows you to instantly turn any news site, social feed, or photo stream into a slick, tablet-optimized, ad-free magazine — a pretty neat parlor trick.

Apple selected it as their app of the year and Time listed it as one of their top 50 innovations of 2010. Some people see it as a clever new way to browse their Facebook and Twitter content; others see it as an affront to copyright law; and a few even envision it as the future of publishing. I prefer to think of it as sliced bread.
