Crap detection for content curators. Is it time for everyone who shares stuff they find on the Internet to think of themselves as content curators. Beats being a rumor monger or Typhoid Mary of misinformation.
Sarah McElrath's curator insight, May 10, 2013 5:14 AM

Could be used when teaching evaluation of online content / critical thinking skills.

'Role of journalist is changing in semantic web' | Comments

'Role of journalist is changing in semantic web' | Comments | Tools for journalists | Scoop.it
David Amerland, SEO expert and author

 

The true effect of any change is measured by the depth of its impact rather than its scale. When it comes to semantic search and the semantic web however, both depth and scale become important.

Google has famously announced that semantic search is the transition of search and the web from "strings to things" and "websites to people" respectively.  To quantify this change, consider that the web is being transformed from a place where anonymity and unaccountability were virtually synonymous and practically guaranteed, to a place where trust, authority and reputation are the only attributes that really matter.

You may want to argue here that as far as journalism and journalists were concerned these are attributes that have always been in play and yes, offline this is certainly the case. It did not, however, carry well to the digital realm. Certainly, star players have always been sought after because the quality of their writing has always carried weight, but good writing is (still) easy to find and a journalist's reach and impact was always achieved through the power of the platform they were on.

I mean, I’m not talking the last twenty minutes of Rudy inspired, but rather inspired to read more, and maybe buy something. We have a challenge. A question. A need or even a want. And we're looking for that moment of inspiration to help make our purchase decision easier.Somewhere along the way of this mass information age, many forgot this. They forgot that storytelling is the main ingredient for inspiration.It’s why we cry at the end of Forrest Gump. It’s why we cheer at the end of Rocky (all six of them). It’s also why some of us buy Dunkin’ Donuts over Starbucks (or vice versa)....
