Robin Good's curator insight, May 8, 2015 5:03 AM



Silk is a web tool to publish online spreadsheet-based data on a specific topic.


The service, which just released a new version of its offering, allows to easily convert any existing data-set into professional-looking data displays, charts, grids, and lists that can be embedded on any site and which can be viewed in multiple ways.


The value of Silk is specifically in making it easy and immediate for anyone to elegantly display and publish data sets in one of several alternative formats which include:

  • Table 
  • List
  • Grid 
  • Mosaic
  • Groups
  • Bars
  • Map
  • Donut
  • Line
  • Pie
  • Scatter
  • Stacks 


How it works: Import a table from Excel, Google Sheets or any .csv file, select the fields you want to import and Silk does the rest offering you tools to filter, edit and select your preferred visualization approach.  


You can also create data sets and displays from scratch inside Silk, and set each Silk either as public or private.



Why it is relevant for content curators: Silk provides a unique and powerful opportunity to leverage existing data and information assets, spreadsheets and databases and to convert them into highly legible and visually impactful data displays on a very specific topic. 


My evaluation: Paired with the power of Kimonolabs or Import.io to convert any website or page content into a spreadsheet, it offers great potential in creating value by providing multiple professional formats to display, present and interact with such data.
Great tool for curating data-based information assets.
 


Free forever for public Silks of up to 3000 pages.

The Future of News Journalism Will Be Built Around Curation and Trust

Robin Good's curator insight, February 3, 2015 4:45 AM



Valuable insight for those interested in seeing how news curation and editor's choice approaches in journalism can benefit both the publisher and its audience a lot more than simply picking and aggregating interesting stories from other sites.


One key relevant difference between aggregating news stories from other sources and editorially curated content is the role of the curator, a tangible person with specific value and ethics who readers come to respect, identify with and ultimately trust for his / her choices in what they should be paying attention to.


"Editors could become curators, cultivating the best work from both inside and outside the newsroom. 
...
We can form a relationship with a good curator, sometimes even a two-way relationship when we can use social networks to start a conversation with them at any moment.


Curation and trust may indeed form the basis of a new symbiotic relationship between information seekers and subject-matter expert curators that will gradually displace the value of traditional algorithmic search.

"...some have even predicted that the future of finding content on the web will be through editorial curation, not search engine optimization.

In 2013, Brittany Botti, co-founder and social lead of the digital marketing agency Outspective wrote, “In the future, people will look to other people instead of algorithms to find what they are looking for.” 


The paper includes valuable links to examples of curated newsletters and other news publications. 


Truthful. 8/10

 A bit of a lengthy read but certainly worth a look and the thoughts it provokes.

Great tool to quickly save web pages, including social media pages with hashtags.  Don't forget to grab the bookmarklet and move it onto your browser, too!

Alison Hewett's curator insight, February 28, 2014 4:01 PM

This could be handy to use with students looking at how internet based media can change and a story be altered. use this tool to preserve current ate of a story at a particular day/time.

The Evolution of the Word “Curation” - Buzzword Tracker

The Evolution of the Word “Curation” - Buzzword Tracker | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

Robin Good: From 500 B.C. to July 2012, here is a short and quite skippy selection of key dates in the evolution of the word curation. A good idea but running a bit short in terms of execution.

I think there is a lot more to be surfaced there that is of relevance and that has been omitted, but then again this is a great opportunity for some other curator to pick up on this theme and go a bit further.

Interesting. 6/10

Pinterest: Everything You Need to Know About the Hottest Niche Site [INFOGRAPHIC]

Pinterest: Everything You Need to Know About the Hottest Niche Site [INFOGRAPHIC] | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

I rescooped this from my topic Pinterest Watch, because I feel this infographic really gives you some insight into what's really happening on Pinterest and it's definitely something I want to bring to your attention.

 

If it makes sense, this site is a great mix in your marketing efforts. Niche sites, especially ones that are visual with less text are becoming more popular everyday and Pinterest is definitely leading the way. Take a quick look at what's happening.......

 

Intro:

 

"How fast is Pinterest growing? How many people work there? This infographic lays it out.

 

**Pinterest has emerged as the runaway social media hit of early 2012. You probably knew that already. But did you know the company just has 12 people? Or that 97% of Pinterest’s Facebook fans are women?

 

**Lemon.ly, a visual marketing firm, took a deep dive into the data to catalog Pinterest’s stunning rise and produced the infographic below.

 

**What’s clear is that with 10 million users, Pinterest has already made its mark in terms of web design influence, if nothing else.
