What's the Right Toolset for Digital Humanities? | Documentalista o Content Curator, purchè X.0 | Scoop.it

There are many tools available to help academics be more productive, and we have spent, now, almost two years in talking about them. We have mostly concentrated on tools useful to any academic, or librarian. Now, however, I would like to start a series of posts discussing the tools for specific disciplines. Why? While most of you in our readership are academic librarians, we do have some researchers and other kinds of librarians. Any of you researching or helping a researcher find and use information might benefit from finding out what tools are useful in a particular discipline. The truth is that different areas of studies differ widely in what they are trying to accomplish and so in the tools they need to get their work done.

Facebook's Paper vs. Flipboard: Comparing Mobile News Curation Apps

Facebook's Paper vs. Flipboard: Comparing Mobile News Curation Apps | Documentalista o Content Curator, purchè X.0 | Scoop.it

Excerpt from article by Mashable:
"How each story is told is as important as the story itself," begins the promo video for Facebook's new much-hyped Paper app.
The app mixes curated news feeds with your Facebook timeline to create a platform that integrates news discovery and sharing into your timeline.

With its tiled layout and gesture-based user interface, it feels very similar to Flipboard's suite of apps. We put both apps side by side to see how the two stack up. Here's how they compare:

Design: Tiles And Gestures

Both use a tiled layout that displays news in a grid. But while Flipboard's design puts content first, Paper puts Facebook first, emphasizing interacting with your Facebook friends and timeline whenever possible.
Both apps rely heavily on gestures for navigation.

News: Curation vs. Aggregation

When it comes to finding and reading news, the two apps take very different approaches. Simply put, Flipboard is an aggregator while Paper is a curator.
Flipboard, with its customized RSS, topic-based feeds and themed magazines, places importance on personalization first, discovery second.
Paper puts discovery first, telling users what stories they should pay attention to, while emphasizing interacting with friends on Facebook.
Users can subscribe to the app's topic-based news sections, create customized "magazines" based around their interests, or use the app like an RSS feed to subscribe to specific sources.

Getting Social

Sharing and social media integration is at the heart of any news discovery app. Unsurprisingly, social media integration with Flipboard is much more subtle, while Paper puts Facebook front and center.
Facebook may be venturing into the news curation business with Paper, and it may be one of the first of many standalone apps from the social media giant, but the company is still very much emphasizing Facebook as the vehicle for news curation and discovery.

Wrapping It Up

Flipboard is great for collecting all the news you want to read from the sources you like. And if you rely on Flipboard as an aggregator, Paper won't be a replacement. Paper is more of a Facebook app than a "news" app, and it's best suited for those looking to share and discover content with friends.

Flipboard is available for web, iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8, BlackBerry, Kindle Fire and Nook. Paper is currently iPhone only..."

Using Tweetdeck you can created curated collection of tweets from an event, theme, or whatever you want.


Custom timelines are a new type of timeline you control: you create the timeline, give it a name, and select which Tweets to add, either by hand or programmatically using the API. Timelines are public, have their own pages on twitter.com, and can easily be embedded on your website.


Tweetdeck can be used to set it up

C'è chi avverte la necessità di maggiore accesso ai frutti della ricerca scientifica. E chi si organizza per ottenerla.
Alessandro Mazzoli's insight:

C’è chi avverte la necessità di maggiore accesso ai frutti della ricerca scientifica. E chi si organizza per ottenerla.

 

È in questi casi che diventa utile il pulsante open access, un arguto progetto open source supportato da Medsin-UK e dalla Right to Research Coalition. La mission di Open Access Button, sintetizzabile nel motto tracciare e mappare l’impatto dei paywall un clic alla volta, è articolata in tre obiettivi fondamentali:

Uno strumento che dettaglia in quantità e qualità la carenza di accesso alla letteratura scientificaUno strumento per il settore pubblico e per i professionisti che consenta di accedere più facilmente all’attuale panorama della letteratura scientificaCreazione di una piattaforma per ulteriore innovazione

Dal punto di vista tecnico, il pulsante altro non è che un bookmarkletda aggiungere al proprio browser e su cui cliccare tutte le volte che ci troviamo davanti a un accesso riservato. Cliccando, il browser apre una finestra laterale in cui è possibile inserire alcuni dati essenziali sull’articolo e sul motivo della nostra esigenza di leggerlo, per inviare tali dati ai gestori del servizio. In questo modo, da un lato Open Access Button permette di tenere traccia dei casi di closed access, dall’altro si riserva di rispondere alla nostra segnalazione con informazioni più precise per reperire comunque l’articolo, come ad esempio un link sconosciuto ai motori di ricerca.

 

 

'Quando lo strumento si diffonderà saranno tempi duri per gli editori di riviste scientifiche a pagamento. Va detto infine che, trattandosi di un progetto open source anche dal punto di vista della tecnologia sottostante, è ovviamente possibile collaborare e segnalare bug e migliorie.'

Tools and Best Advice on Verifying Content in Breaking News: The Verification Handbook

The Verification Handbook, released two months ago by the European Journalism Centre, features tools and advice on verifying content in breaking news situations.

From book intro:
"The Verification Handbook is a groundbreaking new resource for journalists and aid responders, which provides step-by-step guidelines for using user-generated content (UGC) during emergencies.

In a crisis situation, social networks are overloaded with situational updates, calls for relief, reports of new developments, and rescue information. Reporting the right information is often critical in shaping responses from the public and relief workers; it can literally be a matter of life or death.

The Handbook prescribes best practice advice on how to verify and use this information provided by the crowd, as well as actionable advice to facilitate disaster preparedness in newsrooms.

While it primarily targets journalists and aid providers, the Handbook can be used by anyone. It’s advice and guidance are valuable whether you are a news journalist, citizen reporter, relief responder, volunteer, journalism school student, emergency communication specialist, or an academic researching social media."

Index (I only mention the chapters here):

Chapter 1: When Emergency News BreaksChapter 2: Verification Fundaments: Rules to Live ByChapter 3: Verifying User-Generated ContentChapter 4: Verifying ImagesChapter 5: Verifying VideoChapter 6: Putting the Human Crowd to WorkChapter 7: Adding the Computer Crowd to the Human CrowdChapter 8: Preparing for Disaster CoverageChapter 9: Creating a Verification Process and Checklist(s)Chapter 10: Verification Tools


Editors of the Handbook:
Editor: Craig Silverman, The Poynter Institute
Copyeditor: Merrill Perlman, the American Copy Editors Society (ACES)

Each chapter is analyzed with information, tips and many case studies.

The Future Of Content Curation Tools - Part I

The Future Of Content Curation Tools - Part I | Documentalista o Content Curator, purchè X.0 | Scoop.it

Excerpt from article written and curated by Robin Good and first published on MasterNewMedia:
"Content curation tools are in their infancy. Nonetheless you see so many of them around, there are more new curation tools coming your way soon, with lots of new features and options.

Enormous progress has been made since the early days of the first news curation tools to what is available today, but yet, I feel we have only barely scratched the surface.

To illustrate what I expect to see on this front, here is a panoramic tour of the traits, features, patterns and trends that I expect will characterize the future of digital content curation tools, organized into specific feature areas.

1) Display Formats of Curated Content Collections
The first area in which I expect to see lots of improvement and innovative ideas is the one of how a curated collection or stream can be displayed to the user.
This is one of the most underestimated and underutilized areas of improvement for content curation tools.

2) Slicing and Dicing
Some of the present-day content curation tools, including Scoop.it, Spundge and several others, do allow you to tag and filter content but none provides a direct facility to easily create sub-sets that gather together collection items with the same characteristics.

3) Micro - Macro
One other badly needed feature, that I hope will see its way in some of the leading content curation tools, is the ability to instantly switch from a bird’s eye view of a topic to the detailed view of a specific information item.

4) Recurate
Another area that offers great opportunities for innovation and for the introduction of new useful features is the one covering the ability to assess, managing inventories, organize and curate one’s own existing assets.

5) News Discovery
The main problem with news discovery arises from the fact that quality filters and algorithms capable of both fully understanding the topic of interest, not just by way of a keyword or a hashtag but by semantic inference, and capable of identifying the relevant sources among so many noise-making content marketers reposting other people stuff, are not easy to build.
The best way to uncover, identify and identify new quality sources and content items may be to employ a balanced mix of automated search filters augmented by human curators that can supervise, edit, refine and improve on what is gathered by the algos.

6) Ownership
The main benefit offered by content curation platforms that require you to curate and publish first via their systems (Scoop.it, Pinterest, etc.) is that they provide you with an existing broad audience readily interested in your content. For someone just starting out online, this can be a huge booster.
The con side of the equation is that your rights on what you have curated as well as the physical ownership of that content is not under your control anymore. And for those already having good visibility and reputation online, this may not be the most attractive proposition.

7) Credit and Attribution
For professional curators the need to properly and systematically credit and attribute the content and sources utilized is not a secondary matter. Discovery of new interesting content is at the heart of the curator job, and facilitating the exchange on meta-data that provides credit and hints as to who has been of help in discovering something will increasingly be a highly valued activity..."

With billions of people connected through social media and directly connected with email traditional curators of news and other content have had their business models destroyed but it has not surprisingly taken many years for better models to emerge. 

 

The widsom of crowds is well known but so is their stupidity (stock market crashes, group think, lowest common denominator in election outcomes...). Better curating tools and systems are beginning to show that valuable curators of the worlds content are able to find their audience and enrich the world with deep insight that replace the extremely low numbers of curators of the past (news paper barons).

 

Some of these curators will be paid and others do it just for the joy of it. Collectively they will reshape thinking and ultimately the world.

Robin Good's curator insight, November 26, 2013 10:46 AM


Google Living Stories is an experimental project by Google that showcased (over a brief period between 2009 and 2010) how technology could be used effectively to provide a new, richer and more effective way to organize, serve and present news stories online.


In the Living Stories model, each story is a stream that is continuously updated over time with new updates, additional stories, images, and other multimedia resources that are published over time. 


These are organized on the page in a way that provides maximum accessibility to the reader, allowing him to skim, explore, filter or dig in depth into any category or specific item.


Nonetheless abandoned by Google, Living Stories remains a very inspiring example of how automated news aggregation and manual curation, both required in heavy doses to achieve this type of results, could provide a truly innovative mode of producing and offering access to news information.

The greatest news of all is that Google has left the model, examples and infrastructure for using and improving upon it available to everyone for free.


"The Living Stories code is available as open-source for anyone to use on their own sites at: http://code.google.com/p/living-stories/

Excerpt from article by Robert Rose and published on Content Marketing Institute:
"Content curation is a means by which we either supplement or promote our brand’s point of view to our specific audiences within the context of how the “world” is talking about that particular topic. We see it as a spectrum of activities that evolve from one point to the next:

- Simple aggregation and collection of content (with or without a distinct point of view)
- Active curation and promotion of a point of view using that collection as a source
- Aggregation and curation of user-generated content and social conversation around reported events or news in order to build an engaged community
- Active real-time coverage of events and “newsroom” coverage of events around trending topics

If you want to use curation but are not sure how it could fit into your content marketing strategy, consider these four business benefits.

1. "Taming the firehose of content"
Many content marketers still struggle with “feeding the beast” of content and look to content aggregation tools to help them filter — and provide topical relevance to — content they may want to deploy for any of the approaches mentioned above.

2. Faster, more agile content marketing
Beyond social listening tools, content curation and aggregation tools (especially those that also pull in conversations) can help a brand be “in tune” with what’s happening in real time.

3. Adding points of view and distinct experiences
Many content curation tools approach the curation idea from this perspective — where the content marketer has not only the capability to aggregate the content in a “portal” type of interface, but also to organize and add new content, and package it all in a way that may create an entirely new type of experience.

4. Empowering and engaging target audiences
Jeff Ernst, Vice President of Marketing at Forrester Research, has been quoted as saying, “Consumers don’t buy your product or service, they buy your approach to solving their problem.” This is certainly a core tenet of content marketing, and the idea of giving audiences both the incentive and the power to aggregate around a branded approach to a particular topic is an attractive one.

Evaluating content curation solutions
The content curation space has extraordinary diversity in differentiating technology. While some are, quite literally, just using basic web searches to aggregate content based on themes, other solutions have incredibly sophisticated semantic and indexing technologies that could ultimately provide true differentiating value to the business — or an acquiring company.

We recommend developing a more thorough evaluation of the benefits a curation and conversation management process should achieve for your business.
Here are some questions you may want to ask:
- What sources can the tool curate content from? RSS feeds? Twitter? LinkedIn? Facebook?
- How can the tool help me filter the best info?
- Can it curate content that’s created in-house across different channels?
[...and many others]..."
