Are You a News Aggregator or a Content Curator? | Fractoscópio | Scoop.it

A few weeks ago I read an interesting article by Barry Feldman about whether content curation is news or noise. He made some good points. As he notes, “In the end, the acid test is to ascertain whether or not people like what you’re doing.”

Are you noise or context to your audience needs

Chuck Devers's curator insight, June 4, 2014 7:07 AM

The one thing common to every human on the earth is this - TIME.  No matter how rich, powerful, beautiful, or intelligent every single human has the same 24 hours in a day- no more, no less.

 

Content curation can be a blessing to time-challenged people, who have many eyes sifting for content relevant to their own as well as their fellow professionals - so curation can benefit many by, in effect, giving us all "more time" to see those salient and important topics that help us grow.

 

You can be a part of this process, as well, through content curation.

Jaron Lanier on Transhumanism

Les transhumanistes sont bien obligés de reconnaître les dangers d'un "totalitarisme cybernétique" que brandit Jaron Lanier.

luiy's curator insight, July 10, 2014 5:30 AM

Here are the most important beliefs of cybernetic totalism:

 

1) That cybernetic patterns of information provide the ultimate and best way to understand reality.


2) That people are no more than cybernetic patterns.


3) That subjective experience either doesn’t exist, or is unimportant because it is some sort of ambient or peripheral effect.


4) That what Darwin described in biology, or something like it, is in fact also the singular, superior description of all creativity and culture.


5) That qualitative as well as quantitative aspects of information systems will be accelerated by Moore’s Law.

 

And finally, the most dramatic:

6) That biology and physics will merge with computer science (becoming biotechnology and nanotechnology), resulting in life and the physical universe becoming mercurial; achieving the supposed nature of computer software. Furthermore, all of this will happen very soon! Since computers are improving so quickly, they will overwhelm all the other cybernetic processes, like people, and will fundamentally change the nature of what’s going on in the familiar neighborhood of Earth at some moment when a new “criticality”is achieved- maybe in about the year 2020. To be a human after that moment will be either impossible or something very different than we now can know.

The Internet, a Tool for Art? - Karen Eliot

The Internet, a Tool for Art? - Karen Eliot | Fractoscópio | Scoop.it
In the early 90s, when the internet became open for the public and first online communities were founded, the "Cyberspace" was called a "total work of art". (Rötzer, Florian; Weibel, Peter: "Cyberspace – Zum medialen Gesamtkunstwerk" 1993.)I like this vision of the internet as one great artpiece, but to define Netzkunst in the context of art history I firstly would like to distinguish between "art on the internet" and "internet art". When you browse the web you find thousands of online galleries and portfolios of artists showing documentations of pieces which are based on other media and don't need the internet or any network for presentation.Internet art is characterized by using the internet not only as a presentation platform, but also as a raw material. Reflecting on the medium's specific general conditions , qualities, technical and social issues (not only in an artistic sense) internet art contemplates the communication form itself in a critical way. Furthermore a piece of internet art can only exist within or by use of the internet. That means it does not nessecarily have to be displayed online, but needs the medium to be realized (like for example flashmobs are organized on the internet, but happen in real public space). ...

Partitura - Realtime sound visualization by @quayola and @abstractbirds

Partitura - Realtime sound visualization by @quayola and @abstractbirds | Fractoscópio | Scoop.it
Created by Abstract Birds and Quayola, Partitura is a custom software for creating realtime graphics aimed at visualising sound. The term “Partitura” (score) implies a connection with music, and this metaphor is the main focus of the project. The main characteristic of the system is its horizontal linear structure, like that of a musical score. It is along this linear environment that the different classes of abstract elements are created and evolve over time according to the sound.

Big Data não é tecnologia, embora se trate disso. Também não pode ser definido simplesmente como um grande banco de dados. Para compreender Big Data, de fato, é necessário fazer uso da Ciência das Redes Complexas, que aborda os dados do mundo digital [e, por extensão, do nosso mundo]  de uma forma sistêmica e holística.

Nesse vídeo do PBS Idea Channel, Mike Rugnetta pára para questionar se tudo e todos que estão a nossa volta estão conectados com a rede de uma forma ou de outra.
Rosy Feros's insight:

Verdade. Não existe mais o mundo "off-line". On-line e off-line são apenas conceitos didáticos, que se prestam para explicar mundos diversos mas que se interconectam. Na prática, é tudo uma só e mesma coisa - que alguns chamam de "mundo on-line", "vida digital", "mundo virtual", outros chamam de "mundo conectado".

 

Mas tudo isso é o ciberespaço diário em que vivemos: um grande ciberespaço que congrega e contém  inúmeros outros ciberespaços menores, conjuntos concêntricos e excêntricos, altamente permeáveis, conjugáveis  e que alimentam uns aos outros.

 

Mas até a própria idéia de ciberespaço acaba sendo também um termo didático, que ajuda a explicar as inúmeras e altamente dinâmicas variáveis culturais a que estamos expostos, variáveis essas que ajudam a nos formar e a nos moldar enquanto indivíduos sociais e cidadãos digitais.

I think that is very important, mainly in times of so many conversations about Digital Humanities: "Digital Archaeology (...) the very first browser, WorldWideWeb, created by Tim Berners-Lee at Cern in 1991. It's in the nature of web pages and other digital documents that they are fleeting; the original version of the Cern website was never saved, just updated and overwritten as time went on. As a result, Boulton writes, "while 48 copies of the Gutenberg Bible are known to exist, printed over 500 years ago, no evidence of the first web page survives, not even a screenshot."

10 Pieces Of Music Created With Brainwaves | By Becky Chung

10 Pieces Of Music Created With Brainwaves | By Becky Chung | Fractoscópio | Scoop.it
“These tech-aided, brainwave-created music experiments bring a new meaning to "straight off the dome."”EEG (electroencephalography), is a hardware technique long-used to diagnose and study epilepsy, sleep disorders, and brain death. Only recently, however, has it expanded into the prosumer realm; within the past decade companies including Emotiv, Neurosky, and iWinks (who we have an upcoming documentary on their EEG-based exploration of lucid dreaming) have honed in on the usability and accessibility of the technology, creating and distributing consumer-friendly prototypes like lightweight skeletal headbands and even cat ear EEGs. Pushed beyond the medical world, this rise in these brain-wave measuring devices coincides perfectly oncoming wearable revolution, and for artists, EEG technology has become a new medium; a tool for realizing near-perfect translations of creative ideas, and to observe creativity in action, straight off the dome.

"(...) eu acredito que se os profissionais da educação entenderem as práticas educomunicativas como alavancas para resgatar o potencial de criação do aluno, tornando-o agente e participativo no ambiente da escola e no seu processo de ensino e aprendizagem, a educomunicação pode incentivar a frequência da leitura, pois os alunos produzem (escrevem) mais quando sabem que serão lidos, quando terão o seu conhecimento, a sua criatividade e a sua criação conhecidos, e a leitura é uma consequência da escrita.

Another great article by Darin Hammond. It's an interesting way to look at the history of social media, but I'm sure this is just one snippet of the big picture, although I like the angle that Darin's taken on this one. It's actually a much bigger picture than even this, but this is a big part of the foundation of social media, for sure. Take a look at this article. It definitely gets you thinking about it.

Is Your Content Curation Noise or News? | Fractoscópio | Scoop.it
I expect I’ll take some lashings for this opinionated piece, but I have to get this off my chest. You see, I want to help you be a successful practitioner of content marketing.

Rosy Feros's insight:

Parece-me aquela velha história de humanos versus máquinas.  Ou, em outras palavras, a diferença entre informações e conhecimento.

 

Agregação de conteúdo pura e simples pode ser feita tanto por humanos quanto por máquinas. Mas edição de conteúdo é gerenciamento autoral de conhecimentos, e esta tarefa talvez seja melhor realizada por humanos. Isto porque editar conteúdos e contextualizá-los, direcionando-os para um público-alvo específico, requer habilidades que dependem essencialmente do background sociocultural do seu curador.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, May 16, 2014 6:12 PM

Following a rant against some forms of noisy automated publishing that he calls content curation (and that I wouldn't even call that), Barry Feldman provides a great guide to value-adding content curation.


The truth is that content curation has been associated by some to automation. And yes there are tools that will automatically build some content feeds for you. From early on, I've always thought that curation was fundamentally human and that while technology could empower people, replacing them is going a step too far in many domains as this post brilliantly explains. When it comes to content publishing, algorithms are useful to discover content, but deciding on what to publish, how to publish and how to editorialize it are not things a robot could do well. 


Which is why on Scoop.it, we automate content discovery and facilitate distribution but let our users in full control of the publishing stage.


So don't be a robot and to make the most of your content curation, read the great tips Barry that he develops in this article: focus on a topic, add value (“Be meaningful. Add your insight or opinion when sharing the content."), target, condense, etc... And of course here's also our own top 10 best practices on SlideShare to understand how to concretely do that on Scoop.it in a very visual way.
