What Is Corporate Curation? IBM Is Making It | Forbes

This is an excerpt from the article by Steven Rosenbaum and published by Forbes.

 

"It used to be that company communication was all top down.

Today, things are changing fast – as the tools and networks for communication are broken wide open.

 

Within the world of corporate communication, there are new school of thought that say there are the thinkers who are looking to turn this big noisy mess into value for their brands and corporate parents.

 

Ben Edwards the VP Digital Strategy and Development for IBM explains: "“I think there are some emerging roles, potential roles for you know, coms professionals to think about. One of them I think a lot about is this notion of curation.”

 

At IBM, the voice of the company is increasingly coming from the intranet, known internally as W3. W3 has been leading a transformation from professional to user-generated content within IBM.

 

The IBM vision is to embrace, rather than ignore the growing voice and knowledge of their community. “One of the measures that we like to talk about is called ‘Professionally Produced Content versus Employee Published Content’.

 

“We think we have a role in bringing the external perspective into the employee base” says Edwards. That makes IBM a curator as much as a communicator.

Discover News According To Your Preferred Interests: Prismatic

Discover News According To Your Preferred Interests: Prismatic | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Prismatic is a news discovery tool allowing you to select and specify the "interests" and topics on which you want to be kept up-to-date.

 

Once configured Prismatic offers a well laid out web-based magazine format in which you can pick and look at any of your preferred news topics.

 

Prismatic automatically provides detailed information about each news story it will present you, including the number of times it has already been shared and the relevant tags associated to it.

 

Initially Prismatic connects to your main social networks (FB and Twitter) to learn about your interests and then gradually learns with your help what kind of content you are most interested in. 

 

Prismatic has two ways to discover new interests: search and links to related feeds. Search can find topic and publisher feeds or you can create a new feed from a query. Each story has links to related feeds, which you can follow to explore new interests.

 

Check out more News Discovery Tools here:

Have you tried it? How is it different from ScoopIt?
Robin Good's comment, April 10, 2012 5:44 AM
Hello Otir, yes I have.

Nothing to do with Scoop.it. This is good either to create a page where to see all of your preferred RSS feeds in a visual fashion, or to create out of your feeds a visual page that displays them all.
Otir's comment, April 10, 2012 2:25 PM
Thanks for your reply, Robin! I will look into it more in depth then! Seems really interesting... (so many new tools, so little time, though :-)

Publishers Hustle to Make E-Books More Immersive

Publishers Hustle to Make E-Books More Immersive | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it

"...“The conversation a year ago was, ‘Oh my god you’re going to kill my book sales’ and ‘You can’t release e-books simultaneously’ and ‘Don’t do an app, no one will buy my book if the app is $2.99!’” said Lorena Jones, the publishing director behind Chronicle Books‘ digital initiatives, in an interview with Wired at the company’s San Francisco office.

Now book publishers know they must evolve: 21 percent of Americans say they’ve read an e-book, according to a Pew Internet study released last week, and the Association of American Publishers says 114 million e-books were sold in 2010 (the most recent year for which numbers are available). Some 48.3 million iPads, Android tablets and e-readers were sold to U.S. consumers in 2011, and about half that many were sold the year before, according to NPD Group. With so many tablets flooding the market, demand for e-books is only going to grow.

Though the rewards promise to be great, the adaptation book publishers must make is far more complicated than that faced by the music and movie industries, which essentially needed to digitize their current products. Bookmakers must become multimedia companies — creating audio, video and interactive components for their immersive, built-for-tablets offerings..."
