Comprehensiveness, Context and Presentation Are The Three Keys To Effective Curation in Journalism

Comprehensiveness, Context and Presentation Are The Three Keys To Effective Curation in Journalism | The Wonderful World of (NEW) Journalism | Scoop.it

Robin Good: I agree and I have said it before: Curation has nothing to do with personal expression or sharing nor with collecting links, tweets or blog posts that you may find interesting.

 

Curation is all about "taking care" of something in the sense  of helping someone "else" be able to dive in and make sense of a specific topic, issue, event or news story. It is about collecting, but it is also about explaining, illustrating, bringing in different points of view and updating the view as it changes.

 

Adam Schweigert captures the essence of it elegantly: "...[curation] it almost certainly involves broader responsibility than just tracking a big story and putting together a Storify of how it unfolded.

 

It’s more than blogging a daily roundup of the stories our audience cares about but our publication is not going to do original reporting on.

 

It’s more than becoming the Twitter account that people look to because we’re not afraid to retweet our competitors if they have a story that matters to our followers before we can report it ourselves.

 

Naturally we should continue to do all of those things as well, but I would argue that it is important that would-be curators of news go at least one step further.

 

Part guide and collector, part interpreter, part researcher, part archivist, the curator of news does all of the above:

 

a) collects and organizes information,

 

b) places it in a broader context,

 

c) mines the archives to surface bits of historical information, advances our understanding of the story and the driving forces behind it and, perhaps most importantly,

 

d) takes care to ensure that a story is properly maintained and told in the best possible way for our audience to take it in.

 

...

 

Curation is not really about reducing costs and operating more efficiently (although aggregation certainly is).

 

Curation is about taking care to ensure that our audience has the best possible information, context and presentation for that information."

 

Rightful. 8/10

Are aggregation and curation journalism? Wrong question

Are aggregation and curation journalism? Wrong question | The Wonderful World of (NEW) Journalism | Scoop.it

There's been a lot of debate about whether a Forbes blog post that excerpted and summarized a New York Times story qualifies as journalism or not -- but to some extent that's a red herring.

What I Think I Know About Journalism

Next month I will have taught journalism at New York University for 25 years, an occasion that has led me to reflect on what I have tried to profess in that time.

 

Or, to put it another way, what I think I know about journalism.

 

It comes down to these four ideas.

 

1. The more people who participate in the press the stronger it will be.

2. The profession of journalism went awry when it began to adopt the View from Nowhere.

3. The news system will improve when it is made more useful to people.

4. Making facts public does not a public make; information alone will not inform us.
