Why Curation Is Important to the Future of Journalism

Why Curation Is Important to the Future of Journalism
Josh Sternberg is the founder of Sternberg Strategic Communications and authors The Sternberg Effect. You can follow him on Twitter and Tumblr. Over the past few weeks, many worries about the death of journalism have, well, died. Despite shrinking newsrooms and overworked reporters, journalism is in fact thriving. The art of information gathering, analysis and dissemination has arguably been strengthened over the last several years, and given rise and importance to a new role: the journalistic curator. The concept of curating news is not new. But with the push of social media and advancements in communications technology, the curator has become a journalist by proxy. “Curation,” says Sayid Ali, owner of, “gathers all these fragmented pieces of information to one location, allowing people to get access to more specialized content." Curation as an Intermediary Andy Carvin, senior strategist for NPR who runs their social media desk, finds meaning in the word "media." Related:  CURATION

YouTube: a treasure-trove for professional journalists and curators Beet.TV interviewed Olivia Ma, manager of YouTube News, about how professionals and non-professionals are using YouTube to communicate on world events. The site was founded 6 years ago as a distribution platform to share videos, and this forms the basis for what the website does still today: YouTube does not vet uploaded material. As a platform, the website is more and more used to share videos from significant events around the world. According to Ma, people seem to be most motivated to communicate via YouTube in countries where media presence is weak. For professionals, the site offers a source for raw footage that can be incorporated back into their stories. With over 35 hours of video uploaded every minute, it is no wonder YouTube is becoming a kind of cornucopia of raw material for journalists seeking first-hand video documentation of remarkable events around the world.

Online Content Curation: The Key To Building Visibility, Authority And Value As you are increasingly submerged by an endless flood of information, online content curators may provide a new, valuable service to anyone looking for quality information online: a personalized, qualified selection of the best and most relevant content and resources on a very specific topic or theme. Curated in real-time. When I first wrote about this, six years ago, I called this type of work newsmastering and newsradars, but now that the real-time element has come into play, as much as social media, video, Twitter and other new content sources, the original idea of what a newsmaster / content curator is and what tools and features are really needed has certainly started to change. Photo credit: Erkin Sahin Robert Scoble has recently posted on his blog a fascinating article entitled: Seven Needs of Real-Time Curators. But let's hit on the brakes for a minute and clearly point out what content curation is and why a "new media guide" like Scoble felt the need to make things clear.

Gates, USAID, World Bank Invest $50 Million to Save At-Risk Mothers In Africa, pregnant women are 135 times more likely to die during childbirth than their counterparts in developed Western economies. That's a statistic that a new $50 million initiative focusing on maternal health and medical innovation for women is looking to change. Saving Lives at Birth: A Grand Challenge for Development was launched yesterday by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Bank, USAID, and others. Over the next five years, the initiative will invest $50 million dollars in sustainable, potentially high-growth enterprises. "To make advances in maternal and newborn health, our real opportunity lies in harnessing the power of innovation--scientific, technological, and behavioral--to build a continuum of invention from bench to bush," said USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah. Innovation has emerged as a central theme for USAID in recent months, in line with President Obama's emphasis on innovation since his State of the Union address.

Lessons from the Osama bin Laden coverage | Technology One after the other, the news cycles of momentous events keep reshaping the digital information landscape. The latest example of such alteration is the bin Laden story, it just set a new reference point. For traditional media, this raises the pressure yet another notch; they must rethink everything: organisations and processes – as well as business strategies. First, a quick recap of the Sunday 1 May events (all times Eastern Standard Time; add six hours for western Europe and five hours for the UK): 4-4:30pm – 79 navy Seals raid Osama bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. 7:24pm – A former navy intelligence officer name Keith Urbahn, currently Donald Rumsfeld's chief of staff (we all discovered the former defense secretary indeed has one) shot this tweet: In Washington's political game, this is a way to say: We, too, are in the know, we maintain our own network of sources within the military. Within one minute Keith Urbahn's shout was retweeted 80 times.

The Library of Babel The Library of Babel by Jorge Luis Borges By this art you may contemplate the variations of the 23 letters...The Anatomy of Melancholy, part 2, sect. II, mem. The universe (which others call the Library) is composed of an indefinite and perhaps infinite number of hexagonal galleries, with vast air shafts between, surrounded by very low railings. dhcmrlchtdj which the divine Library has not foreseen and which in one of its secret tongues do not contain a terrible meaning. Notes 1 The original manuscript does not contain digits or capital letters.

Why Syria Is not Next . . . so far [With Arabic Translation] As millions of Arabs stir their respective countries with demonstrations and slogans of change and transition, certain Arab states have been generally spared, including some oil rich countries and Syria. Syria stands out as a powerful regional player without the benefit of economic prosperity and with a domestic political climate that leaves a lot to be desired. Some say it combines the heavy-handedness of the Tunisian regime, the economic woes of Egypt, the hereditary rule aspects of Morocco and Jordan, and a narrower leadership base than any other country across the Arab world. Why, then, is all relatively quiet on the Syrian front? We can delude ourselves by resorting to facile explanations related to the threat of severe coercion facing a potential uprising in Syria—which certainly does exist. “Syria is not Egypt” This article is now featured in Jadaliyya's edited volume entitled Dawn of the Arab Uprisings: End of An Old Order?
