Enterprise-Level Content Curation and Auto-Publishing: Lingospot | Mediaclub | Scoop.it

Lingspot is an enterprise level content curation platform capable of automatic content aggregation, filtering and in-depth content editing.

 

The Lingspot platform is made up by two key components: 

The Mixer, which allows you to aggregate unlimited content sources via RSS or via direct API hookup and to filter them according to your own specific criteria. More info: http://corp.lingospot.com/products/algorithmicpublishing/mixer/  

 

The Editor, which makes it easy even for the non-technical publisher to turn the curated content streams into complete self-updating pages. More info: http://corp.lingospot.com/products/algorithmicpublishing/editor/ 

 

Key Features:

 

a) Through a variety of third party relationships, Lingospot can aggregate topic-targeted multimedia, including photos and videos from professional sources (such as the Associated Press, Bloomberg, NBC, CBS, Forbes, etc.), as well as user generated photos and video, such as from Flickr and YouTube.

 

b) Whether it's books on Amazon or auction items on eBay, Lingospot can aggregate product information related to a specific topic. This topic-specific merchandise can be purchased by your readers with only a few clicks.

 

c) Lingospot allows your readers to initiate a conversation about a specific topic on the page where you are aggregating content about the topic. This turns every Topic page created by Lingospot into a micro community, where readers can connect with other readers interested in that topic.

5 Reasons Content Discovery Tools Need a Human Touch

5 Reasons Content Discovery Tools Need a Human Touch | Mediaclub | Scoop.it

 

I really liked this article by Romain Goday from Darwin Ecosystem about content discovery tools and particularly the way he described the element of the "human touch" and why they go hand and hand.

 

His description of the human part of the equation eloquently describes the process of a content curation.

 

Intro:

 

Content discovery tools have been trending towards taking over an increasing part of the selection process by filtering out information.

 

Content Selection Should Remain a Vital Part of the User Experience

 

Excerpt:

 

While tools carry the advantage of computing and aggregating information quickly on the user’s behalf, the user possesses a number of natural skills that tools cannot adequately take the place of.

 

Here are a few of the most important ones, as they relate to selecting and identifying relevant content:

 

Users are contextual thinkers:

 

The relevance of a piece of information depends highly on the context of the informational need.

 

The motivation and goal of the user determines what information is important and what information is not.

 

Users possess relevant expertise: The user’s expertise helps them to predict the implications of a particular event.

 

It also allows the user to identify anomalies that take place in the usual development of an event based on their experience with the topic.

 

Users make sense of patterns: The human brain can easily understand the relationships between multiple events.

 

This ability to interpret patterns is critical to understand and identify what is going on and how it’s developing.

What Curators Need: Finding More Of What They Are Interested In - Technology Forecast | Mediaclub | Scoop.it

In issue 3 of PwC’s Tech Forecast there is a great video illustrating what is going to change in the near future when it comes to finding the right information.

 

"The Navigational phase of online information is just now emerging.

 

Within three to five years, finding more of the information we need--not to mention opportunities for more effective collaboration--will become possible. Social tools will help."

 

The animated video explains how making network and interest-based connections more visible will allow easier and more effective filtering and navigation of information spaces in the near future. 

 

Insightful. 8/10
