From Curator To Publisher: When The Community Becomes The Book Editor

From Curator To Publisher: When The Community Becomes The Book Editor | Prionomy | Scoop.it

"Longreads crowdsources and curates its way to its first-ever ebook by pulling together the best long read articles from 2011 and making those into a commercial publication."


Megan Garber at The Atlantic has a great story on how an online community of long-form articles readers has moved its natural skill one step up by, making of its most valuable curated list, a commercial ebook.


From the article:


"At the end of last year, Longreads, one of the curators of lengthy, magazine-y stories that has sprung up to help fans of long-form journalism find great stuff online, released a list highlighting the top ten longreads of 2011.


The list included such savor-worthy pieces as Maria Bustillos' examination of David Foster Wallace's private self-help library, for The Awl; Jeff Wise's investigation into the crash of Air France 447, for Popular Mechanics; and Amy Harmon's exploration of adult autism, for The New York Times. The list was, in other words, fantastic.


Today, the list is taking a new form -- as an ebook, which is available for $6.99 on Amazon.


The folks at Longreads have licensed seven of the original collection's stories, working out a revenue sharing arrangement between the pieces' authors and the stories' original publishers to ensure that -- in vague IP-ese -- both content creators and rights-holders benefit from the book's sale."


Insightful. 8/10

Drive More Traffic To your Blog by Submitting News and Articles

Drive More Traffic To your Blog by Submitting News and Articles | Prionomy | Scoop.it

After several experiments and tries, I finally did a setup for a community news section on FamousBloggers.net that I am satisfied with. So, I think it’s a good time to share this on the blog and announce the new Community News section for bloggers.

 

Also, I will give you some information on how I created the news section in case you are interested in implementing it on your own blog, however I won’t get deep into technical stuff, but I will point you to the right direction.

 

What is a Community News?

 

If you don’t know what community news section is, then let me give you a quick view…

 

The Community News section is a way of sharing knowledge, basically you have a section dedicated to receive links submissions from the community and publish it on your own blog. It’s so close to the idea of social bookmarking sites, but the technique and tools are different.

Science on the SPOT: Open Source Creativity - Hackerspaces

Inspired in part by the open source movement, public spaces are emerging where people congregate to share ideas, make cool projects, teach, and brainstorm with collaborators on everything from coding to cooking. With no leaders, they have one rule: "Be excellent to each other."

Why Pinterest is Like No Other Social Network

Why Pinterest is Like No Other Social Network | Prionomy | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Reb Carlson for 360 Digital Connections.

 

Why Pinterest Is Like No Other Social Network?

 

Here's the answer:

 

What Google did for organizing information, Pinterest does for curating inspiration.

 

****Pinterest differs from social networks like Facebook and microblogging platforms like Twitter and Tumblr because its focus is not a real time, up-to-date stream of status updates, but rather a curated collection of content that inspires a user enough to think “must pin this.”

 

**There is no paid advertising or media (yet), so all engagement has been purely organic.

 

**Pinterest also ties into multiple current social trends: image sharing, tagging, mobile, curation, visual self-expression and browser plugins.

 

**It has the same content marketing potential as Tumblr for community and ease of sharing and is similar to Google+ in terms of link aggregation.

 

**Beyond amplifying brand presence within search, Pinterest can also build community among people passionate about inspiration and self-expression.

 

Here's a takeaway

 

****This platform provides a rich opportunity for people to share life’s most important events, and therefore gives marketers a chance to create emotional connections with people around their brands.

I'm wondering if this could be a way for students to collaborate as curators and then publish an eBook as a community of learners. Just an idea!!
