Robin Good's curator insight, May 21, 4:53 AM



The leaked New York Times memo of less than a week ago is making the round on the Internet, as it touches upon many of the key issues and opportunities any news journalism operation is facing today.


From my personal viewpoint the most interesting aspect of this lengthy 97-page memo is how much curation, news and content curation specifically, are part of the future view being described in it.


Since, even trying read the in-depth curated version of the leaked NY report done by the excellent Nieman Lab it may take you in excess of 30 minutes, I have extracted and highlighted here below only the points that are specifically relevant to curators and to anyone researching the future of content curation within the context of news and journalism.

Here, six key points to pay strong attention to:


  1. ...resurfacing archival content. The report cites this passage: "“We can be both a daily newsletter and a library — offering news every day, as well as providing context, relevance and timeless works of journalism.” 


  2. ...restructuring arts and culture stories that remain relevant long after they are initially published into guides for readers.


  3.  ...consider tools to make it easier for journalists, and maybe even readers, to create collections and repackage the content.


  4.  allow readers to easily follow certain topics or columnists.


  5. better tagging of the info and content being published.


  6. focus on the less glamorous work of creating tools, templates and permanent fixes that cumulatively can have a bigger impact by saving our digital journalists time and elevating the whole report.

"Convergence Journalism? Emerging Documentary and Multimedia Forms of News" - MIT TechTV | Stories - an experience for your audience - | Scoop.it

"Hybrid forms of multimedia, combining aspects of newspapers, documentary film and digital video are a notable feature of today's on-line journalism.

How is this access to the power of the visual changing our journalism? What current projects are particularly significant?

What will this convergence mean in the future?"

Real Newsgames are rare. This is a good introduction on the topic. IMHO newsgames has to mix with mobile nd social to be really attractive.

When journalism meets dataviz and gaming.  One day instead of reading it, we'll play our NY TImes Saturday Edition ;)

Storyplanet review: A promising digital multimedia storytelling tool

Storyplanet review: A promising digital multimedia storytelling tool | Stories - an experience for your audience - | Scoop.it
Create and share a digital story with texts, photo, audio and video - quick and free; it lacks support for embedding interactive features

"My test drive of Storyplanet shows a few bugs and a lack of features that I hope the developer can address in the official release. But I would still recommend instructors and students adopt this tool in classroom teaching/learning of digital journalism."
