Drag and Drop News Curation: Storify for iPad Is Here

Robin Good: The new Storify news curation tool is now available for the iPad, bringing the ease of drag and drop to the curation world. 


"Founded in 2009, this seven person company has done a remarkable job surviving the market and being one of the major players in the world of content curation.


...


[Storify has been adopted by] 22 out of top 25 news sites in the United States...


Just like Twitter has their trending topics, Storify’s service allows people to keep track of the relevant social media trending topics. Users are able to tell their own story about these major events (like Whitney Houston or Greece’s economic downfall or even Madonna’s Super Bowl halftime performance), and embed them on their own website.


Be your own crowd-sourced storyteller, by dragging in tweets, status updates, photos, and videos from a variety of social networks in order to help you create a better story and telling experience."

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

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: http://www.masternewmedia.org/news/2006/05/24/the_human_news_aggregator_an.htm

 

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: http://marshallk.com/were-entering-a-golden-age-of-news-geekery

 

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.
