Scoop.it's curator insight, April 7, 5:36 PM

Long before Upworthy or BuzzFeed started to explode, the success of TechMeme have been an inspiration to many curators and the envy of many news publishers.


Interestingly, TechMeme evolved from being a fully-automated aggregator to being curated by a team of humans recruited by Rivera and informed by algorithms. "I usually just say "fifty-fifty" when someone really wants to hear a number for automation versus human, but it's actually difficult to quantify." says Rivera when asked about the split between both.


A great case study for humanrithm showing how publishing by curation can empower professionals to become the go-to media in their niche.
