Transcript of Rachel & Anne-Marie (ONW 2011). Beyond RSS.

"new things will still pop up, but it's okay if I don't know about all of them because lots of them will go away, and if they're legit, it's okay if I hear about them on the 2nd or 3rd time they come through the pipe -

I don't have to be first to hear everything." Beyond RSS: Staying Informed & Organized, Today & Tomorrow Rachel Bridgewater, Reed College
Anne-Marie Deitering, OSU Would people tell us about awesome new tools?

Would people tell us "keeping up" was over?

Would people be sad, excited, angry, optimistic (and so on) about these questions?

Would people be thinking about different questions/ have different concerns now? experience 1. experience 2. social 3. curation "What I enjoy most about paper.li is that it makes sense to me visually." social "I feel more compelled to read something if one or more friends have brought attention to it on a social network...an informal peer-review process of sorts" "I'm sort of banking on the principle that people on Twitter probably have got me covered with anything someone may have posted. Basically I'm depending on strangers to mediate my information flow." I love it when friends share things on Google Reader. I don't care if it is knitting patterns or what.
1 curation "Listening to podcasts is my favorite, and I do it nearly every day, because I can subscribe and then listen while I'm doing something else, like driving or walking." "The single most valuable resource to me is the Berkman Center's broadcast/podcast/video-cast of their lunchtime lecture series. Which I think I heard about on Twitter." “Curation comes up when search stops working. Curation comes up when people realize that it isn’t just about information seeking, it’s also about synchronizing a community.” - Clay Shirky keeping up can't don't have to don't want to "More generally, I feel like in the last five years I’ve noticed a definite speeding-up and proliferation in media, generally. This is not news, I know, but it’s true. If I look back ten years, it’s even more significant." "I'm actually abandoning the idea of reading feeds...they just sit there taunting me in Google Reader with a list of things I've fallen behind on." a top trend for 2011 "It's more engaging to me to see photos and text from the posts than just the short description and the bit.ly bits." "Maybe what I really want is an RSS feed that only allows me to read one very good article per day, and then meditate on it. " five years out... "I’'ve taken on broader work responsibilities, so I'’ve had to speed up and work more shallowly, with not as much time to look around me." There are certain people whose messages/blog posts/tweets I always read, and those whom I pretty much ignore or try to avoid. "I'm also sort of letting go of the idea that I do have to be current in all things of importance to librarians, because I don't, and no one I work with is concerned about it.

I'm trying to just stay on top of my small niche instead." "I don't think "what's new" is all that interesting." "Today, it takes more to amaze me..." RSS enabled me to set up "push" but I didn't always want information pushed at me "it also feels like there is a declining sense of urgency" 2005 2008 http://info-fetishist.org/2011/02/10/onw11/ http://info-fetishist.org/2011/02/10/onw11/ "So that’s how it started. I wanted to be able to use that sharing feature. And, don’t get me wrong, I freakin’ love it. But it had consequences." Rachel
