Transcript of "News bubble 2"

  1. 1. newsbubble pull information into your sphere of attention
  2. 2. newsbubble <ul><li>Conceptually, you're in your own bubble in a fast-flowing stream of news information containing various currents of data. </li></ul><ul><li>You need a way to pull the information in which you are interested closer to you, into your bubble </li></ul><ul><li>You set the parameters for what pops through your attention barrier, and how the information stream is flowing around you </li></ul>
  3. 3. newsbubble <ul><li>How does it work? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Gives users a set of tools to define their attention barrier </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Mixture of sliders (to filter by source, degrees of separation, popularity, media type, date & locality) and orderable lists (to filter by topic) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Slider settings saveable and portable across platforms </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A bottom-up approach to enabling users to define their own spheres of attention, rather than having to consume news in the order that someone else has decided for them </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. newsbubble: sliders <ul><li>The sliders effectively set the force-based parameters to attract or repel items to your sphere </li></ul><ul><li>me/them = stuff from your social media friends vs stuff from everyone else </li></ul><ul><li>popular/unpopular = stuff with many links to it vs stuff with few (so you can slide it to unpopular to preserve the serendipity of idle browsing) </li></ul><ul><li>text/multimedia – does what it says on the tin </li></ul><ul><li>local/global – set the degree of localness you want </li></ul><ul><li>official/social – receive items curated or published by trusted sources, or items from your social media contacts </li></ul><ul><li>recent/older – set the timeframe for the information </li></ul>
  5. 5. newsbubble: topics <ul><li>Simply an orderable list of topics </li></ul><ul><li>You order them by interest. Delete the ones you are not interested in. For example, I'd delete sport :). </li></ul>
  6. 6. newsbubble: UI <ul><li>Uses a force-based visualisation to arrange the news information streams that lie outside your bubble, based on your parameters, so you can see what's nearing your attention. </li></ul><ul><li>Each individual item is expandable to see the full text/AV/whatever contained inside. </li></ul><ul><li>Once items are close enough they “pop” into your bubble and are automatically partially expanded so you can read the headline/brief intro etc. </li></ul>
  7. 7. newsbubble: back of the napkin sketch (for web) <ul><li>plus we'd need save/reset/refresh buttons </li></ul><ul><li>naturally the mobile/tablet version would be smaller / divided into config screens </li></ul>
  8. 8. newsbubble: thanks <ul><li>thanks for your interest :) </li></ul><ul><li>I'm at http://twitter.com/pindec </li></ul>
