Robin Good's curator insight, April 2, 2013 5:59 AM



If you were wondering how likely it is that news curation may become a key strategy for offering quality local news, you should check out this three-year old project called The Breaking News Network.


BNN, founded by Pat Kitano, already covers 350 cities worldwide by curating the most interesting local news stories from indigenous blogs and RSS feeds and having a unique focus on supporting community voices and interests.


BNN, in its own words is an active, community-sourced and locally driven information network, that uses curation to provide just-in-time relevant info and news to its communities.

From the official site: "The Breaking News Network delivers social media sourced news and information to over 350 cities and neighborhoods worldwide.


We’re unique to local publishing because we curate and publish the most interesting media and blog feeds in each city (that means less petty crime and accidents, more events, opinions and commentary) to create an aggregate real time ticker tape of literally everything happening in a city.


Every city’s WordPress based website (example: BreakingSFNews.com) broadcasts more than just the usual daily news; it curates news by category: Things to Do, Sports, Food, Culture, etc. so users can find breaking news by topic of interest.


We utilize the curation and presentation tools by Rebelmouse to display content in a visual format.


We deliver localized news streams through Twitter and Facebook for each city and have amassed over 400,000 fans/followers who appreciate our real time local content."


One interesting aspect of The Breaking News Network is its strategic positioning, throughout all of its instances, as a collector and amplifier for the news coming from relevant local institutions and communities providing them with extra visibility and a very relevant context to reach out to interested people.


From Journalisaccelerator.com: "When BNN was launched three years ago to give voice to community causes, Kitano brought a unique knowledge from early experiments using Twitter (2006 – 2009) and social media to develop hyperlocal community information networks for the real estate market.


Focusing on social at the outset, Kitano was “cobbling together” segmented lists on Twitter before Twitter had even created “lists.” (For context, Twitter launched in July of 2006.)


Kitano sees BNN providing a shared social channel – one community, one voice, one cause at a time – with promise of doing good for others by supporting civic groups, local causes and arts organizations."


Here, in more detail, some of the community support they provide: "We provide free access for local institutions to our 350+ Twitter feeds via our unique Community Retweet Program.

We also provide this access to local politicians and local media so they can broadcast their most important messages to our communities.


We create national campaigns and build brand advocate networks for good causes.


We create unique ways for our readers to interact with their local institutions, like the National Aquarium and Chicago’s International Beethoven Festival."

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 News Is Not About Facts: It's About Context, Relevance and Opinion

The Future of News Is Not About Facts: It's About Context, Relevance and Opinion | Futuro do Jornalismo | Scoop.it

"News sources can't just give us the facts. They must tell us what those facts mean."


Via Robin Good

Robin Good's curator insight, February 24, 2014 4:55 PM



Here's a refreshing look at the future of news that highlights the importance of going deeper into creating value for readers by providing more focus, relevance, context and opinion.

These are the characters that properly define what we now refer to as "curation" when it comes to content and news.


The following passages, extracted from the book, The News: A User's Manual, are by Alain de Botton, and have been excerpted from a lengthy article on The Week entitled "The Future of News".


"News organizations are coy about admitting that what they present us with each day are minuscule extracts of narratives whose true shape and logic can generally only emerge from a perspective of months or even years — and that it would hence often be wiser to hear the story in chapters rather than snatched sentences.


They [news organizations] are institutionally committed to implying that it is inevitably better to have a shaky and partial grasp of a subject this minute than to wait for a more secure and comprehensive understanding somewhere down the line.


...


We need news organizations to help our curiosity by signaling how their stories fit into the larger themes on which a sincere capacity for interest depends.


To grow interested in any piece of information, we need somewhere to "put" it, which means some way of connecting it to an issue we already know how to care about.


A section of the human brain might be pictured as a library in which information is shelved under certain fundamental categories. Most of what we hear about day to day easily signals where in the stacks it should go and gets immediately and unconsciously filed.


... the stranger or the smaller stories become, the harder the shelving process grows. What we colloquially call "feeling bored" is just the mind, acting out of a self-preserving reflex, ejecting information it has despaired of knowing where to place.


...We might need help in transporting such orphaned pieces of information to the stacks that would most appropriately reveal their logic.


...it is news organizations to take on some of this librarian's work. It is for them to give us a sense of the larger headings under which minor incidents belong."

 


The call for understanding how much greater value can be provided by curating news and information in depth, rather than by following the shallow, buzzy and viral path beaten by HuffPo, Buzzfeed and the rest of the gang, is clear.


But beyond context and depth, real value can only be added if we accept the fact that going beyond the classic "objective fact reporting", by adding opinion and bias in a transparent fashion, can actually provide greater value in many ways, as Alain de Botton clearly explains:


"Unfortunately for our levels of engagement, there is a prejudice at large within many news organizations that the most prestigious aspect of journalism is the dispassionate and neutral presentation of "facts."


...


The problem with facts is that there is nowadays no shortage of sound examples. The issue is not that we need more of them, but that we don't know what to do with the ones we have...


...But what do these things actually mean? How are they related to the central questions of political life? What can they help us to understand?


...The opposite of facts is bias. In serious journalistic quarters, bias has a very bad name. It is synonymous with malevolent agendas, lies, and authoritarian attempts to deny audiences the freedom to make up their own minds.


Yet we should perhaps be more generous toward bias.


In its pure form, a bias simply indicates a method of evaluating events that is guided by a coherent underlying thesis about human functioning and flourishing.


It is a pair of lenses that slide over reality and aim to bring it more clearly into focus.


Bias strives to explain what events mean and introduces a scale of values by which to judge ideas and events. It seems excessive to try to escape from bias per se; the task is rather to find ways to alight on its more reliable and fruitful examples. 


There are countless worthy lenses to slide between ourselves and the world." 


Overall, these ideas offer a truly refreshing look at the future of news and at the relevance that context and opinion could play in transforming this medium from a vehicle of mass distraction to one of focused learning and understanding for those interested.

Ever wonder why Google is installing extreamly fast gigabit internet infrastructure when the average person needs 200x less speed? It is because of the future of the Internet of Things. In less than 10 years, the internet will not just be for your phone or laptop, everything will be online.

 

I’m talking about your car, fridge, tv, blender, air conditioner, front door, and even your wallet. This inevitable future is why google is starting today with affordable gigabit internet. This new wave of device overload will open up revenue and advertising streams to a whole new level.

 

Today’s infographic states that in 2020, every human being on earth will be connected to 10 separate devices.

 

I know I’m already using five and I bet one of the most prominent technology coming up soon will be wearable tech. If its for exercising, sports, general information or just making phone calls, wearable tech will be an exciting addition today’s digital arsenal.

Why The Web Needs Human Content Curation [INFOGRAHIC]

Why The Web Needs Human Content Curation [INFOGRAHIC] | Futuro do Jornalismo | Scoop.it

We are living in a sea of information. Content marketing has become the buzz word in every marketing strategy.

Although content marketing is nothing new it has never been easier to create and publish content.

Which has lead to a dramatic rise in the amount of content we consume.

Google’s Executive Chairman, Eric Schmidt, stated that: “Every two days we now create as much information as we did from the dawn of civilisation up until 2003.”

That’s an enormous amount of data, and a large amount of that data is surplus to requirement.

Search is Not Enough

When we search the web we are looking for specific information. The search engines are doing their best to help us find the best and most relevant stuff.

But like all automated processes they can only do so much.

Continually gamed Head of Google’s Search Spam team, Matt Cutts, has a fight on his hands to return the “good stuff”. In a recent statement Matt even suggested even guest blogging may not be a good practice.

There is one thing Matt Cutts and Google are for and that is value added content curation. The reason is that curation helps filter the web.
