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

Montage – A Cool Social Online Visual Digital Scrapbook From Microsoft But one thing still stays the same in the researching business – we still have to compile search results manually, whether it’s in the form of stacks of photocopies or bytes of information. Montage from Microsoft tries to change that – in style – by giving us access to an online visual digital scrapbook. More Acquainted With Montage Some might say that Montage is a nice looking web magazine where you can consume information comfortably. The website gives a brief description of itself: Montage is a flexible web-based service that makes it fun and easy to create and share a visual album of the web on the topics you care about. Montage is also editable and social. The basic use of Montage is as simple as writing down the search string and hitting enter. Managing Montage Even though anybody can use the basic features of Montage, more advanced features – like sharing, saving, and publishing – will only available after you log in. And this is what the result would look like. What about you?

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.

100 000 éditeurs et 10 M de pages vues par mois pour Pearltrees Le site français de sélection et de partage des perles du web annonce, 15 mois après son lancement et trois mois après la sortie de ses nouvelles fonctionnalités collaboratives, le franchissement de deux caps symboliques: 100 000 éditeurs et 10 M de pages vues / mois.

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.

Why Taking A Risk Is The Only Way To True Success What used to be safe, is no longer. What’s “safe” in today’s volatile economy and society, is risk. Not long ago it was safe to go to college, get a degree, then get a job in the field of your study. Today, someone is working the job you want to have. And so, you’re left to your own devices. The Global Economy The world is your oyster. All you need to do is give people something unique, in a unique way, and with passion. The good news: you can reach far more people than you used to be able to. The “bad” news: average doesn’t cut it any longer. Doing an average job used to mean security. With the expanding of the client base, the broadening of what can be done, and the incredible lack of employment, should you seek a career, or risk it all and create your own path? What does a “career” offer? The likely risk of being laid off (seniority is king in the work force). Low pay – as an entrepreneur you can essentially, determine you own pay by you actions. What does “risk” offer?

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?
