Circa's David Cohn, Inside's Jason Calacanis and Newsy's Jim Spencer provide key insight into what their news discovery services are offering and how they use curation to achieve this result.  


The video covers also the value of curation over original journalism and issues of copyright and fair use.

The Future of News Is Not About Facts: It's About Context, Relevance and Opinion

The Future of News Is Not About Facts: It's About Context, Relevance and Opinion | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

"News sources can't just give us the facts. They must tell us what those facts mean."

Robin Good's curator insight, February 24, 2014 4:55 PM



Here's a refreshing look at the future of news that highlights the importance of going deeper into creating value for readers by providing more focus, relevance, context and opinion.

These are the characters that properly define what we now refer to as "curation" when it comes to content and news.


The following passages, extracted from the book, The News: A User's Manual, are by Alain de Botton, and have been excerpted from a lengthy article on The Week entitled "The Future of News".


"News organizations are coy about admitting that what they present us with each day are minuscule extracts of narratives whose true shape and logic can generally only emerge from a perspective of months or even years — and that it would hence often be wiser to hear the story in chapters rather than snatched sentences.


They [news organizations] are institutionally committed to implying that it is inevitably better to have a shaky and partial grasp of a subject this minute than to wait for a more secure and comprehensive understanding somewhere down the line.


...


We need news organizations to help our curiosity by signaling how their stories fit into the larger themes on which a sincere capacity for interest depends.


To grow interested in any piece of information, we need somewhere to "put" it, which means some way of connecting it to an issue we already know how to care about.


A section of the human brain might be pictured as a library in which information is shelved under certain fundamental categories. Most of what we hear about day to day easily signals where in the stacks it should go and gets immediately and unconsciously filed.


... the stranger or the smaller stories become, the harder the shelving process grows. What we colloquially call "feeling bored" is just the mind, acting out of a self-preserving reflex, ejecting information it has despaired of knowing where to place.


...We might need help in transporting such orphaned pieces of information to the stacks that would most appropriately reveal their logic.


...it is news organizations to take on some of this librarian's work. It is for them to give us a sense of the larger headings under which minor incidents belong."

 


The call for understanding how much greater value can be provided by curating news and information in depth, rather than by following the shallow, buzzy and viral path beaten by HuffPo, Buzzfeed and the rest of the gang, is clear.


But beyond context and depth, real value can only be added if we accept the fact that going beyond the classic "objective fact reporting", by adding opinion and bias in a transparent fashion, can actually provide greater value in many ways, as Alain de Botton clearly explains:


"Unfortunately for our levels of engagement, there is a prejudice at large within many news organizations that the most prestigious aspect of journalism is the dispassionate and neutral presentation of "facts."


...


The problem with facts is that there is nowadays no shortage of sound examples. The issue is not that we need more of them, but that we don't know what to do with the ones we have...


...But what do these things actually mean? How are they related to the central questions of political life? What can they help us to understand?


...The opposite of facts is bias. In serious journalistic quarters, bias has a very bad name. It is synonymous with malevolent agendas, lies, and authoritarian attempts to deny audiences the freedom to make up their own minds.


Yet we should perhaps be more generous toward bias.


In its pure form, a bias simply indicates a method of evaluating events that is guided by a coherent underlying thesis about human functioning and flourishing.


It is a pair of lenses that slide over reality and aim to bring it more clearly into focus.


Bias strives to explain what events mean and introduces a scale of values by which to judge ideas and events. It seems excessive to try to escape from bias per se; the task is rather to find ways to alight on its more reliable and fruitful examples. 


There are countless worthy lenses to slide between ourselves and the world." 


Overall, these ideas offer a truly refreshing look at the future of news and at the relevance that context and opinion could play in transforming this medium from a vehicle of mass distraction to one of focused learning and understanding for those interested. 



Must read. Rightful. Insightful. 9/10

#mashboard #startup #curation tool make sense of your bookmarking jungle #edtech20 #pln | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Mashbord puts your favorite links into a customizable dashboard that you can actually use.
Nowadays are tons of bookmarking sites out there already and we love them. The problem is, they don't really do exactly what we need them to. So we made a better one. We needed structure, not a bewildering list of tags; and we needed a superfast way to visually recognize a bookmark and go there. Mashbord is this solution.
Because mashbord is task-oriented, it′s more than just a bookmark site, it′s a productivity tool. Just create a mashbord for a specific task and then add only those bookmarks that make sense. Your additions display as thumbnails, not just text. This lets you visually scan what you′re looking for and go to it... quickly.
Features :
Create your very own, customized mashbord.
Create a Mashbord just for cooking websites and recipe resources. Or create an online shopping-related Mashbord with bins for electronics, clothes, and music. Create a Mashbord for all your most used websites so you're always a click away from what you need.
Access your mashbords anywhere.
Mashbord is always available, as long as you have an internet connection and a browser.
Make Mashbord your homepage
Everyone has a bunch of sites they ALWAYS access. Stuff like Webmail, Twitter, Facebook, the bank, you name it. You can set up your Mashbord with "Social Media," "Personal Finance," or even "Favorite Blogs" bins. By making Mashbord your private "Mashup Dashboard" you'll have direct visual access to all your favorites in one place.

Curation At Work: The David Rumsey Historical Map Collection | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Robin Good: The David Ramsey Map Collection is an historical collection of thousands of beautiful maps and atlases organized and made freely accessible to the public online in unique and unprecedented ways.


This is a stunning example of a visual curated collection, offering thousands of beautiful images at very high quality, and multiple ways and tools to navigate this ocean of maps.

 

This online collection offers in fact no less than 12 different ways to navigate its contents by providing dedicated browsers and visual imaging tools ranging from 2D-GIS to SecondLife and virtual QTR panoramas. For example, with the Google Earth visualization, any map in the collection can be seen perfectly mapped on the globe, or by using the Luna Browser one can create collections, save and download images, annotate maps or even create embeddable presentations.

All of the images in the collection have been published online at full resolution and are available to download at different quality levels under a Creative Commons License for non-commercial uses.

This is truly a spectacular collection with marvellous maps and atlases enriched by complementary data, visualization tools and a formidable array of navigation devices.

 

Possibly the best online curated collection I have seen so far.

 

Must-see. 10/10

Clip, Collect and Organize Anything That Interests You: Clipix | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Clipix is a Pinterest-like clipping and collection app which allows you to capture images and content from any web page and to organize it in custom visual boards.

One key feature that differentiates Clipix from Pinterest (though it is likely that Pinterest will add this feature soon as well) is the ability to organize together multiple sets into a "multiboard".

 

Other key features include a "Price Drop Alert" which emails you when the price of one of the commercial products you have clipped drops and 

"...For example you might have a multiboard that you call “Recipe Ideas” and inside you’d have 3 clipboards: Baking Recipes, Soup Recipes, and Health Recipes.

 

The easiest way to create a multiboard is by dragging one clipboard from the icon in the lower right-hand corner into another clipboard."

Thank you Lelapin. The world is beautiful because it is varied. Pinterest will soon lose its "mojo" to many of these more specialized clones, which will provide more immediate value to those specifically interested in that specific area or application. I may be wrong but this is what I expect to happen.

Reduce Information Noise Through Social Curation and Collaborative Discovery: Calm Technology

Reduce Information Noise Through Social Curation and Collaborative Discovery: Calm Technology | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Among the five digital trends presently shaping the consumer experience economy, according to Macala Wright who first wrote about this on Mashable, there is one that has as its key objective the reduction of "information noise", distractions and approaches to digital communication that make it harder to grasp and understand a message or to complete a key task one is after.

 

It reads like there is more to information curation than people scanning feeds and selecting relevant items to write about.

 

From the original article I have extracted a few passages: "Calm technology refers to applications that cut down on the digital noise of high-volume data to show the user only enough information that he or she needs to complete a task.

 

...It refers to technologies that do not disrupt our workflow.

 

The whole idea is to reduce distractions to our work flow without losing functionality.

 

Calm technology fights against many of the principles of digital marketing: instead of screaming for attention with flashing banner ads, technologies and applications politely take a backseat to the user’s primary focus...

 

...

 

Examples of calm technology can be found in the growing popularity of social curation and discovery.

 

Social product discovery sites such as Lyst, Mulu.Me, Buyosphere, Svpply and Discoveredd are essentially social filters that enable their communities to curate the products that are most relevant to them.

 

Moreover, the rise of interest networks and the idea of following someone who has similar likes and shared interest topics are examples of the principles of calm technology driving user behavior.

 

Google Circles, Pinterest and Chime.In, even location apps such as Sonar, Glancee and Highlight, can all be classified under the “term interest network.”

 

Excellent reading. 8/10

Creative Commons Licenses and Attribution: How To Embed Them Inside Your Digital Content

Creative Commons Licenses and Attribution: How To Embed Them Inside Your Digital Content | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Robin Good: JISC provides a very well documented guide to the use of Creative Commons licences (also referred to as CC licences) which can greatly facilitate the copying, reuse, distribution, and in some cases, the modification of the original owner’s creative work without needing to get permission each time from the original rights holder.

 

In addition to this the correct use and embedding of CC license may greatly help in the effort to make original sources more transparent to the final reader, in many context, including news and content curation efforts of many kinds.

 

Creative Commons licences can be embedded into a variety of resources, such as PowerPoint, images, Word docs, elearning resources, podcasts and other audio visual resources.

 

While specifically prepared for UK public sector organizations this document can be quite useful for anyone interested in the use of CC licenses to distribute digital content online.

 

Key Benefits of embedding CC licences for content curation and attribution:

It can help the user see that the resource is an 'open' resource and licensed under a specific CC licence terms
  It can help reduce the future 'orphan works' (works for which the rights holders are unknown or cannot be traced), and assist in creation of appropriate attribution, citation and potential negotiation for further permissions. By embedding the selected CC licence to the licence details even if the resource gets detached from its metadata. This is particularly the case if the resource is found via a search engine instead of the original website platform which might host specific copyright restrictions.

Bento is a website that, thanks to its author Jon Chan and the many user contributions, has gathered, organized and curated the very best resources available online where you can learn how to code.


From html to javascript, ruby, php, Java, perl, Bento offers learning guidance for over 80 different technologies and coding languages. 


Here is how Jon Chan, a 23 years old who launched this project in September of 2013, describes Bento: 

"Bento is what I would have liked to have when I was learning to code.


I started learning to code when I was very young - about ten years old. Then, the only things I had available were what I could find online and through a few dense books.


Now, people have the exact opposite problem: how do you break through the noise and find what's actually valuable to learn?


This site is here to help you figure that out."

 

Bento is a perfect example of effective content curation as it does not simply collect and list all of the resources available to learn each language but it only suggests the very best ones, organizing them in easy, medium and hard and providing also "best of" / direct solutions that save readers lots of valuable time.


Free to use. 


Useful, simple and immediate to use. Well organized. 9/10

Digital Curation: A Comprehensive Resource Guide

Digital Curation: A Comprehensive Resource Guide | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Excellent guide to digital curation resources by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.. It includes alphabetically organized lists of digital-curation related resources from academic programs to file formats, guidelines, organizations, blogs, and a very rich list of digital curation software tools.  

 

From the site: "This resource guide presents selected English-language websites and documents that are useful in understanding and conducting digital curation. It is also available as an EPUB file (see How to Read EPUB Files)."

 

Excellent. 9/10

More than just a pretty picture? How sociologists (and other social scientists) can use Pinterest | Impact of Social Sciences

More than just a pretty picture? How sociologists (and other social scientists) can use Pinterest | Impact of Social Sciences | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

      According to Deborah Lupton, who did research work on Pinterest, this social media platform has the potential to be of great value to sociologists and scientists.  Some school teachers are already using Pinterest as a pedagogical resource, but this does not apply to academics.

      Pinterest is relevant for the purposes of curating, displaying and (we could add) sharing images related to the topic being researched or taught about. The purposes mentioned by Deborah Lupton for the use of Pinterest by sociologists are suitable to a mere student or professor. 

 

      Broadly, you can use Pinterest boards as:

 - Disclosure and promotion of your academic work (your published material on books, blog posts and the websites) and material on the themes you are studying (like infographics, tables, mind maps). You can also use boards to promote research and teaching initiatives at an institutional level.

 - Repository of images on a specific learning topic;      

 - Aggregation of images from other users which are relevant for your working topic.

 

      To use Pinterest as a pedagogical tool:

-  Create a board on a subject you are teaching, use somebody else’s board or reuse pins from other boards;

-  Ask students to create their own boards (or preferably a collaborative one) so that this might trigger comment, analyses, discussion and writing of texts (essays, etc.);

-  Collaborate with other academics to share ideas and resources for teaching.

Curate and Organize Visual Collections: NotesCloud

Curate and Organize Visual Collections: NotesCloud | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Robin Good: NotesCloud is a new curation service which allows you to collect, organize, and share any type of content you have into beautiful magazine-like layouts.

“Imagine a tool that is always at hand when you stumble upon or dream up something interesting,”

NotesCloud uses the metaphor of a multi-section notebook to organize snippets and notes. People can create their own hierarchies of notebooks, sections, and pages as they curate their topics.

Unlike Pinterest or Evernote, NotesCloud’s structured storage metaphor encourages some organization, so it’s not just a “shoebox” full of random clippings."

(Source: Venturebeat)

Notescloud is equipped with a set of browser-based clipping tools for Chrome, Safari, and Firefox, that make it possible to easily grab and save any content you’re looking at online with just two clicks.

The content curated and organized with NotesCloud can be accessed from tablets and smartphones as well as desktop browsers.

Free to use.

Aggregation and curation: two concepts that explain a lot about digital change

Aggregation and curation: two concepts that explain a lot about digital change | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

This is a Mike Shatzkin article published in 2009 that I discovered through Robin Good.

"Every time I read a story about why newspapers are failing that doesn’t mention the role of aggregation and curation in their troubles, it reminds me that something very fundamental is being missed, even by very sophisticated observers." he starts.

Having been an actor of the digital disruption in the music business, the comparison of publishing with the music industry (and subsequently of the newspaper with the 12/15 song album) is dear to my heart.

The Music Industry lost a lot of time and effort blaming piracy while not realizing albums had stopped making sense and that they had opportunities around curating playlists or compilations that they didn't exploit.

Likewise, the opportunity to create new relevant media through curation has never been that big.
