Create A Multimedia Timeline To Curate Stories That Have Strong Chronological Narrative: Timeline

Create A Multimedia Timeline To Curate Stories That Have Strong Chronological Narrative: Timeline | Curation, Copywriting and  ... surroundings | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Timeline is a Javascript open-source solution that allows anyone to create a visual timeline that integrates text, tweets, images, maps, audio recordings and video clips on an infinite scrollable bar. 

 

A project funded by the Knight News Innovation Lab, Timeline works great with stories that have a strong chronological narrative. It does not work well for stories that need to jump around in the timeline.

 

Mashable Sonia Paul writes about it: "Timeline is similar to Storify in that it allows users to aggregate media on the web, it differs in its operation.

 

With Storify, users can drag and drop content into a post.

 

With Timeline, users can either embed the code onto their website using JSON, or — if they don’t want to mess with any coding — they can fill in a ready-made Timeline template on Google Docs.

 

The project is currently hosted on GitHub, and users can find specific directions on how to both embed the code and use the Google Doc template there, too.

 

Future plans for the project include support of more media type, as well as iPhone compatibility, B.C. time support and better seconds and milliseconds support." 

 

Here is the GDoc ready-made template: https://docs.google.com/previewtemplate?id=0AppSVxABhnltdEhzQjQ4MlpOaldjTmZLclQxQWFTOUE&mode=public&ndplr=1&pli=1# 

 

Download: https://github.com/VeriteCo/Timeline/zipball/master ;

 

More info, including how to embed it on your site and what file formats are supported: http://timeline.verite.co/ ;

I Blog for Content, Not for Comments. Surprised?

I Blog for Content, Not for Comments. Surprised? | Curation, Copywriting and  ... surroundings | Scoop.it

Here’s whyhttp://bit.ly/HGEQgA 


1) I am Not Blogging to “Engage” You

To me, the value of your +1, Facebook Like, or ReTweet is far more valuable than a mere comment

 

2) I’m More Interested in a Community of Readers and Sharers, Not Commenters

I’d rather have you in my community as a reader, a subscriber, and hopefully someone who shares my content with your networks


3) I Want to Engage Where Everyone Can See It – Not Just on My Website

Don’t you want to take the conversation to a bigger forum where more people can jump in and add value to the conversation?

 

4) This is a Business Blog, Not a Personal Blog

The objective of this blog is to provide insightful content for businesses, not people

 

5) Blogging Comments an Important KPI for Social Media Strategy?

With the advent of social media, providing resourceful content is still the best way to “engage” with other businesses – and blogging is one of the best formats in which to do it by

 

Neal Schaffer - http://bit.ly/HGFpHd - reminds us that he is here to offer you content, content that is as unique as it is hopefully insightful, shaped by professional experiences and sometimes personal passions.

 

The goal is to educate and hopefully become one of your primary sources for social media for business insightful advice that you won’t find on those “other” sites.

Why “Infographic Thinking” Is The Future, Not A Fad -- Visual Storytelling

Why “Infographic Thinking” Is The Future, Not A Fad -- Visual Storytelling | Curation, Copywriting and  ... surroundings | Scoop.it
We get a lot of infographic pitches. Almost all of them suck. Why?

 

Here's a lovely video and great article about infographics and narrative as a form of visual storytelling.

 

What is an infographic? You will see plenty of examples here.

 

What does this have to do with narrative? The best infographics tell a story or trigger stories within our minds. The designer being interviewed on the video, Francesco Franchi explains how and why.

 

I hope you like the video (5+ min.) and the insights Francesco shares with us. Very interesting!
