A New Real-Time Curation Platform: iFlow

A New Real-Time Curation Platform: iFlow | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

iFlow.com offers everyday web users the ability to discover, create, curate, and share realtime information on any subject — in a filtered and contextual way.

 

Like next-gen RSS. 

 

iFlow allows users to follow ideas instead of individuals, in contrast to Twitter and Facebook, for example, taking the next step beyond the kind of realtime info streams we see on social networks, to apply that to rich data from any and all sources.

 

The consumer platform is built using Flow’s APIs and really functions as an example of the kind of realtime stream processing functionality developers can take advantage of when building their web and mobile apps.

 

Find out more or sign-up for early access here: http://iflow.com/

3 New Digital Solutions For Capturing and Sharing Content

3 New Digital Solutions For Capturing and Sharing Content | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Of these three, I think that "Tha Trunk" is the coolest.  No USB?  No problem.  Share files with others in the room quickly if they all have this app.

The digital coupon clipper (of real coupons) will be cool when stores start accepting digital coupons

 

The middle one just looks like a weaker version of scoop.it

Humanities in the Digital Age | MIT World

Reports of the demise of the humanities are exaggerated, suggest these panelists, but there may be reason to fear its loss of relevance.

 

VERY SLOW START.  It gets interesting around 35 minutes into the video.

Education Across Borders: The India Perspective | MIT World

An eye-opening and important lecture to MIT students from an Indan perspective.

- near-future research from students will require local-solutions to global problems

-viruses are like terrorists.  They are science's example of waiting for right time, right conditions, and vulnerable victims.

 

Rickshaw drivers in India are frequent victims of tuberculosis after just a few years inhaling traffic fumes. This near-epidemic went unacknowledged until Kapil Sibal demanded a solution.

The 5 types of stories that make good Storifys | Poynter.

I've enjoyed following the story of Storify.  Thank you to Terry Elliott's for posting this resource.

 

Poynter.org sums up five case uses for Storify.  As I was reading through these it occurred to me that the 'storifying' process might be used as prep for the writing process.  Writers could use Storify as a newfangled outlining/brainstorming process.  

 

The structure of  Storify fits in well with the idea that all text is story and conversation.  I  also like how it introduces students to the idea of curation and research-as-filtering.
