The Guardian's robot newspaper comes to the U.S. | Digiday
"The Guardian uses a homegrown algorithm (that’s the “robot”) that combs through the paper’s content to find the best long reads based on social media metrics like Facebook shares, tweets and comments, then feeds them into essay-style templates. They’re then beamed to a printer."

GSAP: Professional-Grade HTML5 Animation « GreenSock
GSAP is a suite of tools for scripted, high-performance HTML5 animations that work in all major browsers. No other library delivers such advanced sequencing, API efficiency, and tight control. Stop wrestling with cumbersome CSS animations, stuttery jQuery.animate() calls, or a system that limits your creativity. Use animation to tell a story in a rich way rather than settling for a few fades and slides.

Tracing Attentions - Dan Hassoun
Television & New Media May 2014 vol. 15 no. 4 271-288

Simultaneous media use has become a prominent part of the contemporary media landscape. While critical media scholars continue to presume that audiences engage media one at a time, industries and advertisers are increasingly examining how viewers split their attentions across multiple screens at once, and how best to integrate these screens into synergized content streams. This article relates industry discourses on simultaneous media to longer-standing interest in audience inattention, specifically the ways that producers are reconceptualizing multitasking from a distracting activity to a potentially interactive one. Examining these discourses provides a foundation from which critical scholars can engage with the multiscreen contexts in which audiences use new media, while critiquing the presumptions of interactivity at the heart of convergence culture.

Why Is Facebook Page Reach Decreasing? More Competition And Limited Attention | TechCrunch
"The surplus of content and lack of space forces Facebook into the role of the ‘bad guy’ for filtering the feed in an attempt to show the most relevant posts (plus some ads). And so far, Facebook has done a terrible job of communicating how and why it filters the News Feed."

Zeega
Recommended by Donica Mensing - drag and drop tool for making a multimedia story, animated GIF plus audio - slideshow style - odd but interesting. VERY SHAREABLE. Students love doing it. Zeega creates attribution on each slide for you. Donica's exercise is the students have to make a Zeega with 5 local news items, and make one of these a day (for how many days?). Goal: Get them more interested in news.
