Robin Good's curator insight, November 26, 2013 7:46 AM


Google Living Stories is an experimental project by Google that showcased (over a brief period between 2009 and 2010) how technology could be used effectively to provide a new, richer and more effective way to organize, serve and present news stories online.


In the Living Stories model, each story is a stream that is continuously updated over time with new updates, additional stories, images, and other multimedia resources that are published over time. 


These are organized on the page in a way that provides maximum accessibility to the reader, allowing him to skim, explore, filter or dig in depth into any category or specific item.


Nonetheless abandoned by Google, Living Stories remains a very inspiring example of how automated news aggregation and manual curation, both required in heavy doses to achieve this type of results, could provide a truly innovative mode of producing and offering access to news information.

The greatest news of all is that Google has left the model, examples and infrastructure for using and improving upon it available to everyone for free.


"The Living Stories code is available as open-source for anyone to use on their own sites at: http://code.google.com/p/living-stories/


Must see. 9/10

Free to study, use and adopt.

Here's a good real-world example of good content that could become one hundred times more useful and valuable for readers if it was just "curated" a bit more.

A company called ClickConsult has had in fact the great idea of culling together all of Matt Cutts' videos (the Google Spam team evangelist), in a one-page collector, while complementing all clips with a summarized text answer.


Great idea and cool execution: http://www.theshortcutts.com/


but...


It's impossible to find what you are looking for or to browse in some kind of intelligent way, because all of those 100 video clips are all mixed together. Yes you can search, sort by newest, but there are no groups based on common questions and topics (and there are a lot), no sets, no playlist on any of the hot topics covered.


This is why I thik this is a perfect example of a some good content where if you only add a simple layer of curation, by organizing and grouping related items, this same collection becomes instantly one order of magnitude more useful.

What do YOU think?
