Twitter Co-Founder Evan Williams Lays Out His Plan For The Future Of Media | TechCrunch

Twitter Co-Founder Evan Williams Lays Out His Plan For The Future Of Media | TechCrunch | E-publishing | Scoop.it

Twitter Co-Founder Evan Williams has an ambitious new plan: to shift our daily reading habits away from consuming incremental news bites and towards engaging with enlightened ideas curated by an intelligent algorithm. Ordinarily, such a goal would seem utopian, were it not for the fact that Williams is among a handful of Internet pioneers who have disrupted the media industry multiple times.

Make your own magazine for the iPad with PRSS | Maak je eigen iPad-magazine met PRSS

Make your own magazine for the iPad with PRSS | Maak je eigen iPad-magazine met PRSS | E-publishing | Scoop.it

(...)

 

De insteek van PRSS is eigenlijk doodsimpel. De web-based magazinesoftware maakt het in elkaar zetten van magazines veel eenvoudiger.

(...)

In zijn huidige vorm doet PRSS denken aan het opmaakgedeelte van blogs als Tumblr: simpel maar doeltreffend. Ik zie rijen foto's en lappen tekst. "Je gooital je materiaal in een grote bak", laat Elings zien. "Dan kies je een template en", hij klikt op een knopje, "boom!" Seconden later zie ik een nog te verschijnen editie van TRVL, helemaal opgemaakt zoals ik gewend ben.

 

"Nu heb ik in een keer 90 procent van de layout gedaan. Foto's, tekst, links en gps-data stonden al gesorteerd, PRSS deed de rest." Elings zegt de opmaak van een editie TRVL nu in een uur te kunnen doen, tegenover de dagen die hij vroeger nodig had. Er zijn meer voordelen. Vroeger was een nummer TRVL honderden mb's groot, nu weegt TRVL per editie zo'n 35 megabyte, een besparing van 80 procent. "De tekst van alle edities is al gedownload op het moment dat je de app opent. Afbeeldingen laden pas wanneer je gaat bladeren, toch gaat dat zo snel dat je er niks van merkt." Opslaan voor offline lezen kan ook, downloaden duurt dan luttele seconden.

 

Publiceren met PRSS heeft nog een groot voordeel: wijzigingen zijn makkelijk door te voeren. Een spelfout kan maanden na publicatie alsnog verbeterd worden. "Ook voor adverteerders zijn we aantrekkelijk. We kunnen zorgen dat reclame altijd actueel is, zelfs binnen nummers van maanden geleden en kunnen we advertenties op leesgedrag, land en smaak aanpassen."

 

(...)

 

TRVL staat als een huis, volgende stap is het polijsten van PRSS. "Ik omschrijf PRSS graag als de iBooks Author voor magazines die Apple is vergeten te maken", zegt Elings. "Ik wil dat het er ook zo uit gaat zien."

PRSS wordt gratis voor iedereen en door de gebruiksvriendelijkheid een democratisering voor de digitale tijdschriftenmarkt. "We hebben afgelopen zomer al uitgebreid met Apple gesproken, ze waren erg geïnteresseerd. Toch weet je nooit wat er gaat gebeuren en dus blijven we schaven tot we vinden dat het perfect is." Ik vraag Elings wat er nog te verbeteren is. "Details, honderden details." Ik vraag of dat geen ondankbaar werk is: de meeste mensen zal het niet opvallen, ze nemen het voor lief. "Dat is het grootst mogelijke compliment dat lezers en gebruikers ons kunnen geven."

 

Dit artikel is verschenen in Bright 49. Beeld door Milan Vermeulen.

Niels Biersteker's insight:

For English readers; this is an interview that explains the ideas and workings of PRSS, a new (free) tool to make magazines for the iPad.

This Simple Data-Scraping Tool Could Change How Apps Are Made | Wired Design

This Simple Data-Scraping Tool Could Change How Apps Are Made | Wired Design | E-publishing | Scoop.it
Kimono is a web app that lets you slurp data from any website and turn it instantly into an API.

 

For the last five months, Rowe and Ranade have been building out Kimono, a web app that lets you slurp data from any website and turn it instantly into an API. Using a bookmarklet, you highlight the parts of a site you want to scrape and Kimono does the rest. Those with programming chops can take the code Kimono spits out bake it into their own apps; for the code illiterate, Kimono will automatically rework scraped data into a dynamic chart, list, or a simple web app. In essence, it’s a point and click toolkit for taking apart the web, with the aim of letting people build new things with it.

Dean Meyers's curator insight, June 21, 2013 8:02 AM

Successful innovation tends to feel simple and clear, or provide a more direct path to resolving a dilemma. Visual information that supports innovation should be just as transparent in giving us the facts, the story or the drama. This article points out straightforward design principles with a focus on producing graphics for news or journalism, but can be applied to revealing or explaining any kind of story visually. Reading through them you won't find the need for advanced technical skills, just good judgement and attention to details.
