5 Reasons Why Web Publishing is Changing | ReadWriteWeb

5 Reasons Why Web Publishing is Changing | ReadWriteWeb | Workplace Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

"We're witnessing another sea change in Web publishing.

There's a new edge and it's populated by the likes of Medium (a kind of categorized Tumblr), Branch (the sister site of Medium, for discussions), App.net (a microblogging platform) and Svbtle (an elite network of indie bloggers).

 

Here are five key drivers for this new wave of publishing services.

 

1. Publishing Is Getting More Casual:

The publishing process less onerous. It's now less about composition (being a writer or blogger) and more about expressing your thoughts as simply as possible.

Not only is the type of content less formal now, the design is stripped back too. All of the latest web publishing tools have minimalist, in some cases almost naked, interfaces.

 

2. The Web Is Moving From Pages to Streams:

This new wave of tools is looking for ways to deliver content in a more flexible way.

Veteran blogger Anil Dash declared that he wants "a clean, simple stream of my writing, organized by topic and sorted with the newest stuff on top."

 

3. Topic Organization Is Finally Happening:

This is essentially what Medium is attempting to do, with its "collections" - which are posts by various people organized by topic or theme. Content on the Social Web has become far too chaotic and it desparately needs organization.

 

4. Quality Is In Vogue:

The Web is awash with content - much of it poor quality. Medium is explicit about wanting to change this:

"Our philosophy is that quality begets quality, so we will grow Medium smartly, ensuring that our platform is valuable to everyone in this increasingly mobile, connected, and noisy world."

 

5. Startups Are Searching For Non-Advertising Business Models:

Finally, the new wave of publishing services are all seemingly anti-advertising. There is experimentation happening again on the Web - which is a very positive sign..."

Why Twitter Matters: Tomorrow’s Knowledge Network

Why Twitter Matters: Tomorrow’s Knowledge Network | Workplace Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

Great pick by Jan Gordon and a vribrant defense of Twitter as way to do research, mutual curation and smart... cocktail parties! 

 

Nigel Cameron says in this post he doesn't like "the thought of “one great inter-connected world brain,” language proposed by the editors of a National Science Foundation volume a decade back." But reading him (and as he also admits), I couldn't help but think about this previous post on how curation might be shaping the global brain.

 

Thanks Jan!

Curate Your Own Web Magazine by Picking the Best from the Web with Zeen

Curate Your Own Web Magazine by Picking the Best from the Web with Zeen | Workplace Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

Robin Good: I have just received an invitation to test the new content curation platform Zeen, and here I am with some early impressions on what I have seen.

 

Zeen is a content curation tool designed to create good-looking magazines on a specific topic or theme. Setup and configuration is very easy and straightforward and it allows you to connect your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.

 

Once you are in, you can immediately set up a Zeen magazine, by selecting a title, a description and a cover image. From there on you are free to use the integrated search feature to find web articles, news, images, video clips or tweets relevant to your magazine. You just start a search after having selected what kind of content you are looking for and Zeen presents you with a set of relevant results. One-click on any of them and they are inserted instantly in your magazine.

 

You can also create as many "tags" (Zeen calls them "labels") as you like and assign each content item to a specific label.

 

The final magazine issue offers an automatic visual table of contents, in which you can organize by dragging and dropping the order of your selected contents.

 

A Zeen magazine can be made of multiple issues, instead of being like Scoop.it, a continuously growing content holder. You select the content items and you produce an issue (which can be still edited after publication).

 

N.B.: There is no way to edit or modify the content picked and added to your magazine, including the use of images.

 

You can't create new content but only pick and organize existing resources.

 

Here is an example of a Zeen magazine: http://zeen.com/read/ODgO94/toc

and here is another one on barbeques: http://zeen.com/read/KuJoAW

After receiving an invite yesterday and also gave it a try. They have a long way to go as far as a mobile user using the site to currate content.

In find when viewing a magazine the layout has to much going on around it that takes away from the content.

Brian, I agree with you 1000%!
