Howard Rheingold's insight:

Robin Good is my mentor in using tools like RSS and filter apps to tune incoming information streams about specific subjects. He calls these combinations of streams and filters "news radars," and knowing how to put them together is important for journalists, researchers of all kinds, and any consumer of online information who wants to find relevant information without being overwhelmed.

Another excellent personal information management tool, HT to Robin Good for spotting.

News Curation - Back To The Future [2006]: Marshall Kirkpatrick and the Human News Aggregator Interview [mp3]


I was an eager enthusiast for Robin Good's early work on curation, which he called "newsmastering" in 2006  -- Howard




Robin Good: Digging back into my article archives I have just run into a special gem, dating back to 2006.


Thanks to the curious and entrepreneurial spirit of Marshall Kirkpatrick, in this short audio interview (6':21"), I get to explain what was my vision then (six years ago) for what we now call "news curation".


Missing any better term for something that had no previous history of practice, at the time I had labelled "newsmaster" the news-curator professional, and "newsradar" the final output (a finely-tuned thematic news channel bringing you the best from many different sources).


The interview had been done for the web magazine NetSquared and you can find more info about this and a full transcription of the interview right here:


Let me know what you think.


Update: Right after I had posted this short story, I went to check a bit how my old friend Marshall Kirkpatrick, author of the above interview, was doing, and headed to his blog... and what I discovered left me startled and enthusiastic at the same time. Read it by yourself:


Isn't the world amazing?

Robin, that is too funny that we were both thinking of that old interview! I still love your vision from back then of curation specialists inside companies. Hope you're well, old friend!

Hi Marshall, great to hear from you! Yes, we seem to be still in sync after all these years and for good reasons too.

I am well and I wish you all the best in what you are doing! Keep it up.
