Why Human Filters are the Future of the Web

Why Human Filters are the Future of the Web | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

Karyn Campbell wrote this piece for Sparksheet - Great Observations and so true!

 

Intro:

 

"Before news aggregators, content curators, and Google’s omnipotent algorithm, the world’s information was sorted by real human beings."

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

It comes down to trust

 

The web has offered us incredible options for how we buy products, talk to our friends, or experience media. Remember that adage “quality over quantity”? We can take that phrase literally online – quantity won’t go away; quality will just sit atop.

 

Sometimes we want someone to tell us, consistently, what’s true and what’s good. No wonder YouTube just relaunched its music page, enlisting writers for Vice, Spin and other major vloggers to curate its featured content.

 

**As Steve Jobs more radically put it, “It’s not the consumers’ job to know what they want.”

 

It comes down to trust. Because we are all so well trained in the art of branding, arguably at the expense of crafting things worthy of distribution,

 

**it becomes hard to trust the advice of a Wild West web.

 

Still, we’ll continue to take the word of our favourite industry insider, celebrity or uncle.

 

**Likewise, the smartest companies in this space will calibrate expertise with automation, math with emotion.

 

**Whether she’s a kid writing code or a poet in-the-making, look for the next generation Steve Jobs to carry on building, hiring, and perfecting these filters.

 

Absolutely!

How can we build better filters for growing flows of information?

How can we build better filters for growing flows of information? | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

 

 

Nicola Bruno, cofounder of Effecinque and a journalist fellow at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford) goes the startup route "with the intent of being relentless hunters of news and human filters of information."...

 

Heres what got my attention:

 

As the digital flood sweeps into our lives every imaginable kind of information, much of it offering nothing more than a smoke screen to blur or distort our view, figuring this out is crucial.

 

Who or what can help us see beyond the smoke? Will software like Stats Monkey give us reason to believe that we are swimming only in facts with its mechanical certainty? And what will be the role of journalists in a media landscape in which reporters and news items are little more than commodities, and, in the case of reporters, a soon-to-be redundancy?

YouTube: Easily create video intros and outros

YouTube: Easily create video intros and outros | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

If you use YouTube playlists, to organise and manage videos, you may wish to try out a new feature which will enable you to add intros and outros to  the videos in the playlist to " weave individual videos together into a bigger story"

 

You can create these either as recorded 'to camera' pieces using your built in webcam or as text intros, there are a number of different styles and background effects to choose from. There is also an option to add background music.

 

The tool can be found in your Playlist settings in the Video Manager, click: Edit Playlist to use.

 

If students are creating playlist this facility might help them to think crtically about the content and sequences in a playlist.

Relationships and Recommendations Soon More Valuable Than SEO

Relationships and Recommendations Soon More Valuable Than SEO | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

Jan Gordon: "Here's what caught my attention:

 

 Axel: As long as people search for a product not knowing their name or a technology, not knowing its source or a solution not knowing who is a potential supplier SEO is an important part of the marketing mix...

 

However, this is slowly and steadily changing.

 

Today 60 – 80% of the so called educated purchase decision is based on recommendations by trusted individuals or groups that have no or no significant interest in the sale but helpful and experienced people using or knowing the product or service in need.

 

And the number of recommendation based purchases is steadily growing. I'm sure it will hit the 80 – 90% range in the next 5 to 10 years.

 

Now – what does that mean to SEO?

 

Why should a business invest in search engine optimization if most of the purchase decisions are based on recommendations?

 

Wouldn't it be smarter to invest into the "recommendation chain" instead in SEO?

 

Wouldn't it be more effective and successful to make sure people recommend a product than hoping to come up higher in the list of search results?"

You made my day! I always love reading and curating your articles this was definitely no exception. Thank you for always raising the bar and making us pay attention to what's really important.
janlgordon's comment, June 17, 2012 3:53 PM
Thank you for this Robin, it's greatly appreciated. It's exciting to watch and be a part of all this change, I'm sure you agree:-)
Robin Good's comment, June 18, 2012 2:28 AM
Yes Jan... I don't know exactly what you are referring to, but this the only sure thing we have today: this is time of fast and continuous change... so I am certainly enjoying the ride.

On another note: I would humbly suggest to consider posting shorter stories, especially when you are also pointing to the original, as what I am looking for from you, is not a rehash of what's in the article - outside of a 1-3 para excerpt - but the reasons why you are recommending it. You are already doing both, but it is overwhelming for me. Too much stuff, and I haven't even seen the original yet.

I would also gently mute some of the visual noise you create by heavily formatting with asterisks, bolds and big font sizes. In my case that doesn't help much. It actually hinders my ability to rapidly scan and check whether you have something good there.

I suggest to limit greatly the formatting options you use and to highlight only what is really relevant, because when too many things are highlighted, bolded, asterisked, none has any more an effect on me. It's like a crowd screaming: who do you help? :-)

Don't Underestimate the Power of Social Networks

 

This piece was written by Oscar Berg (@oscarberg) for CMS Wire and curated by JanLGordon covering her topic "Content Curation, Social Media and Beyond" on Scoopit.

 

I was especially drawn to this article in relation to Scoopit, as I know from discussions I've had with Guillaume Decugis, this very much speaks to his vision of what this platform could and should become.

 

**By sharing content and helping each other source, review and curate topics of interest, we stay informed, expand the conversation and contribute to others. It's like a collective intelligence of sorts.

 

**An essential part of community building is giving others credit if you repost their content and thanking them for posting it.

 

Intro:

 

"Since the dawn of time, primates have relied on social networks to help the whole group with their environments.

 

This of course applies to humans and our enterprises as well."

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

Understanding the Dynamic of Your Networks

 

Today we also have information technologies such as social software that anyone can use to build, nurture and make use of their informal networks.

 

**And as the informal networks become visible, they become more usable to both individuals and organizations

 

**as we can better understand their dynamics and how to make proper use of them.

 

**In an environment where change is business as usual and being

 

**more responsive, agile and innovative is the only way to adapt to the environment, who can afford not to understand the dynamics of networks and harness their power with the use of social technologies?

 

Why and for how long?
