Excerpted from article by Search Engine Land:

"Bit.ly announced a new set of APIs named Social Data APIs.

The new APIs allow you to search for top stories in real time over the Bit.ly URL network. You can quickly see the top URLs and stories for any specific query right now, in real time.

 

The three types of functions include:

1) True Realtime Search: Search for top stories and URLs in real time by query and geographic area.

2) Attention Spikes: This doesn’t require you to search by keyword, instead the “bursts API” returns the current phrases that are receiving a burst in attention beyond what we would expect.

3) Metadata about URLs: Bit.ly will provide the metadata on URLs based off of keywords, topics, content, language, and location relevance..."

The Human Algorithm: Redefining the Value of Data | Brian Solis

The Human Algorithm: Redefining the Value of Data | Brian Solis | All about Web | Scoop.it

Excerpted from this interesting article by Brian Solis:
"While the amount of personal and ambient information churned out by SoLoMo is often inundating or even perplexing, it is this “big” data that will help businesses evolve and adapt in a new era of connected consumerism. More importantly, the study and understanding of relevant big data will shift organizations from simply reacting to trends to predicting the next disruption and adapting ahead of competition—thus, marking the shift from rigid to adaptive business models.

Without interpretation, insight and the ability to put knowledge to work, any investment in technology and resources is premature. But, by investing in human capital to make sense of would be ominous data, organizations can modernize the role of business intelligence to introduce a human touch.

The reality is though that how organizations connected with customers yesterday is not how customers will be served tomorrow. Meaning, the entire infrastructure in how we market, sell, help, and create now requires companies to not only study data and behavior but also change how it thinks about customers.

I refer to the confluence of data and interpretation as the human algorithm—the ability to humanize technology and data to put a face, personality, and voice to the need and chance for change. Data tells a story, it just needs help finding its rhythm and rhyme.

The human algorithm is part understanding and part communication. The ability to communicate and apply insights internally and externally is the key to unlocking opportunities to earn relevance. Beyond research, beyond intelligence, the human algorithm is a function of extracting insights with intention, humanizing trends ad possibilities and working with strategists to improve and innovate everything from processes to products to overall experiences.

The idea of the human algorithm is to serve as the human counterpart to the abundance of new social intelligence and listening platforms hitting the market every day. Someone has to be on the other side of data to interpret it beyond routine..."

L'algorithme de l'homme: Redéfinir la valeur des données | Brian SolisDe www.briansolis.com - Décembre 21, 2012 13:33

Extrait de cet article intéressant par Brian Solis: 
«Bien que la quantité de renseignements personnels et la température ambiante égrenée par SoLoMo est souvent inondé, voire perplexe, c'est ce« gros »des données qui aideront les entreprises évoluent et s'adaptent à une nouvelle ère du consumérisme connecté . Plus important encore, l'étude et la compréhension des données pertinentes grandes organisations se déplacera de se contenter de réagir aux tendances de prédire la rupture prochaine et l'adaptation d'avance sur la concurrence ainsi, marquant le passage d'rigide pour les modèles d'affaires adaptés. Sans interprétation, la perspicacité et la capacité d'appliquer les connaissances acquises, tout investissement dans la technologie et les ressources est prématurée. Mais, en investissant dans le capital humain de donner un sens serait de mauvais augure de données, les entreprises peuvent moderniser le rôle de l'intelligence d'affaires pour introduire une touche humaine. La réalité est cependant que comment les organisations liées aux clients d'hier n'est pas la façon dont les clients seront servis demain. Signification, toute l'infrastructure dans notre façon de commercialiser, de vendre, d'aider et de créer des entreprises exige maintenant que les données de l'étude et le comportement non seulement, mais aussi changer la façon dont il pense les clients. Je me réfère à la confluence des données et l'interprétation que l'algorithme de la capacité humaine à humaniser la technologie et les données de mettre un visage, la personnalité et la voix de la nécessité et de possibilité de changement.

New Visual Storytelling Tool: Storyplanet Lets Users Package Content Into Interactive Experiences

New Visual Storytelling Tool: Storyplanet Lets Users Package Content Into Interactive Experiences | All about Web | Scoop.it

Excerpted from review article by Journalism.co.uk:

"The platform enables users – such as journalists and photographers – to build interactive and visually captivating packages of content, which can then be embedded within a news site.

 

We discussed the concept with founder Bjarke Myrthu, who describes Storyplanet as "a packaging or a wrapping or an interface tool", which journalists can use to bring together collections of their work in a great user experience.
"So if you have a bunch of different media types, some text, some video, some photos, you can create a really nice package out of it that people can navigate in different ways," Myrthu added.

 

Each story is built on a grid, which users can then add "tiles" to, which effectively form each page of the story, and appear like slides in a presentation.
The grid format means tiles can be arranged in different structures based on the desired flow of the story and navigation between pages can also be applied.

 

Using the builder tool each tile can be laid out, edited and have content added to it, whether that is a photo, video, piece of audio or just text.

The content of a tile can vary from featuring just a photo to acting as an index page with a list of sections, like chapters, which can be clicked on by the viewer to reach different parts of the story.
Users can also edit transitions between tiles, the order of the tiles and other details such as changing the background colour of the tile.

The final product is viewable via a URL and can also be embedded, and played through the Storyplanet player. Currently this is a Flash player, but Storyplanet is currently working on a HTML version..."
