Advanced users employ Blender’s API for Python scripting to customize the application and write specialized tools; often these are included in Blender’s future releases. Blender is well suited to individuals and small studios

I guess you can never have enough curating, in this digital age anything that can keep you up to date and help visibility is worth a try. I like the way the simplify everything. I'm not sure but even with all this info I still may feel like I'm missing something and go to the individual sites anyway. But to see what the landscape looks like in a quick view Qwant is pretty cool.

The Future of Mobility [Infographic]

The Future of Mobility [Infographic] | Social media and new journalism | Scoop.it

An astounding 80 percent of the world’s population now has a mobile phone—and 84 percent is unwilling to go a single day without their phone. About 45 percent of Americans say they can’t go more than a few hours without checking their phones. In 2012 there were five billion mobile phones in the world—1.8 billion of these were smart phones.


Facebook now reaches 76 percent of the smartphone market, and it accounts for 23 percent of total time spent using apps each month.

The next five most used applications are Google apps, and they account for 10 percent of app usage time. One of the latest smartphone trends is that things are getting less touchy but more sensitive. Gestures and other non-tap inputs are on the rise. Casting a sidelong glance, for example, can pause a video. Some apps are being developed that will switch from manual to voice to text to gesture, depending on what you are doing...

Voor een ieder die zich nog afvraagt waarom mobile content belangrijk is.. 

Mobile is dé manier om in cotact te blijven. En of je nu een commercieel bedrijf bent wat graag een product aan de man brengt, of je bent dienstverlener of overheid. Het maakt niet meer uit. Geen mobile ontent, geen engagement. Niet meer boeien en binden. Tja.. Wie kan zich dat nu nog permiteren?

Mobile Commerce: 

 

> "Mobile Shopping accounted for 11% of e-commerce in the 4th quarter of 2012 (up from 3% 2 years earlier)."

> Roughly 58% of smartphone users have made purchases on their smartphones.

> These Mobile Shoppers typically use smartphones for 50 to 60% of the Shopping."

Seeking to manage our attention and avoid distraction is one thing, but first we need to be aware of where our attention is going. As smartphones are increasingly used, this infographic highlights in just what way we use our phones. 1 in 5 people check their phone every ten minutes... something tells me that the smartphone may be one of the biggest sources of modern distraction!

A Day In The Life Of The Internet – infographic | Social media and new journalism | Scoop.it

'There are close to two and-a-half billion people online around the world – this number has grown 566 percent since the year 2000 – and 70 percent of them use the internet every day. As you might imagine, with that kind of presence, which amounts to more than a third of the global population, quite a lot happens over the course of each 24 hours.

The Internet never sleeps.  Is it possible to even fathom the idea of any given moment without someone in the world being connected to the Internet for one reason or another?  It wasn’t that long ago that the Internet wasn’t even a thing, but anymore it’s something that we can’t do without.  ztake a look at “A Day in the Life of the Internet”...

Dr. Karen Dietz's comment, May 24, 2013 5:15 PM
HI Barbara and thanks for your input! When Cowbird originally came out, I too thought it would not work for business folks so have ignored it. I thought the focus on personal stories not related to business wouldn't work. I really didn't think Cowbird would be attractive to businesses because of the type of stories people were sharing plus the stories stayed on Cowbird's site. But because they've added new functionality where you can now embed your stories on your website, blog, etc. I think businesses could use it today. The best business stories are personal. I've poked around Cowbird and it seems a simple enough tool to use so I think biz folks could definitely leverage it now to their advantage. I am sure businesses will come up with creative ideas for how using this tool if they want.
Jeff Domansky's comment, May 24, 2013 6:32 PM
Hi all, I agree Cowbird is not for most businesses yet. But imagine if your business wanted to connect with customers and encourage them to share their personal stories in a contest, to illustrate a concept or support a charity? I'm with Karen. It's not the tools, it's the creativity that counts.

If you are looking for an effective tool to keep yourself update on your favorite web news, social media and RSS feeds this Chrome extension can provide an effective and free solution.



From Cnet HowTo: "Newer versions of Chrome spruce up the New Tab page by adding some shortcuts to your most-visited Web sites or Chrome apps.


A previous extension I wrote about, New Tab Page adds the weather, some headlines, and links to Chrome apps. Onefeed does all of this, plus a custom newsfeed and social media updates from Facebook, Google+, Twitter, and Instagram. You can also attach your Dropbox account, if you really want to.


To get started, just install a copy of Onefeed for Chrome by visiting their Web site, then click the Get Onefeed button. You won't see a new icon appear, but you should see an alert from Chrome saying that the extension has been installed."


Free to use.

Aggregate, Filter and Publish RSS Feeds On Your Site with FeedWelder

Aggregate, Filter and Publish RSS Feeds On Your Site with FeedWelder | Social media and new journalism | Scoop.it

Via Robin Good

Robin Good's curator insight, July 11, 2013 6:16 AM



Feedwelder is a new web app for news and content curators that allows you to easily aggregate, mix and filter two or more RSS feeds and then to get a reliable JavaScript code to publish them on your website or bog.


Feedwelder does an excellent job of simplifying the need to mix multiple RSS feed together, eliminating duplicates and filtering the resulting mix according to your own specifications.


See part of the "mixing" interface: http://o7.no/154QOLH


Here is how it works:


  1. Find the feeds you would like to show on your web site. (For example, BBC News has a page that lists all their feeds.)

  2. Click on New Mix and give your mix a title (only visible to you).

  3. Click "Add a Feed" to paste in each of your feeds.

  4. Click "Save and Get Code" and you'll see the Javascript or PHP code that you can paste into your web pages.


The key benefits of using Feedwelder to aggregate and publish RSS feeds on your web site are:


a) Faster - Cloud cached feeds for maximum page load speed on your site


b) Simpler - Easy to mix and display feeds


c) Better looking - White label customizable look



My comment: For anyone doing news curation this is as useful as oxygen for humans. Aggregating, mixing and filtering RSS feeds is one of the basic activities of a good news curator and FeedWelder provides a simple tool to do it.


The only limitation of this approach remains the one that you are posting a JavaScript code snippet on your page and not the actual content of those RSS feed items. So, if you are doing this with the specific intention of improving the quality of content that search engines will find on your site, this is not going to help you. On the other hand if your first concern, - as it should - is for the end reader, the service provided by Feedwelder can provide a really useful and easy solution for publishing RSS feeds on your site while keeping control on their look.

The Future is Data

The Future is Data | Social media and new journalism | Scoop.it

At a time when journalism is undergoing a profound crisis as a result of the rise of social networks, financing difficulties, and increasing layoffs in the media industry, the 1st Data Journalism Conference organised by the Spanish chapter of the Open Knowledge Foundation opened up a new direction for the profession; a future that paradoxically goes back to its origins: to the search for new sources, to objective accounts of events and to data analysis.

Great summary about the speakers talk given on the 1st Data Journalism Conference by Mar Cabra, Eva Belmonte, John Burn-Murdoch and Manuel Aristarán.
Through the data analysis today we can speak about Data Journalism, Smart Cities, Open Government. The use and exploitation of any data source, proprietary or external (Open Data or not), shows a change that allows processes for understand what happens and the development of others oriented to the business. The companies are the main interested on the acquisition and exploitation of this data to gain competitive advantage. But they aren’t the only ones able to use this data. Users can also maximize the creation and use of information for the creation and development of politics that allows a better management of our resources and benefits for the citizens.
