expertnews.me - follow news from experts you trust on topics you care
expertnews.me is an idea of the newspaper of the future. If this model succeeds, it can fundamentally shift the power in the news business from the publishing companies to the individual editors/authors/experts and can encourage quality journalism. expertnews.me also bridges the gap between “professional” journalists and “amateur” bloggers - you are either an “expert” for your topics or you are not based on your stories and not based on your pay check.
expertnews uses a facebook-style feed-view to show users the news that are most relevant to them. Users can customize their feed by following experts (i.e. a single person from a newspaper or a complete blog) from the expert directory with a single click on “follow” or by adding their own experts. expertnews.me uses both the RSS-feed and twitter of the expert as data sources (more data sources (facebook, …) can be also be added later).
Main Features in overview:
Since expertnews.me has the technology to take out single experts/authors from a complete newspaper RSS-feeds, authors/experts/editors get more bargaining power: Users no longer “buy the newspaper” - they follow individual editors who they trust in specific topics. Users can be their own “publishing house” and compile their own editorial staff. If authors/experts change their employer, they will take their “followers” with them. Therefore since individual authors are more visible and rewarded by earning followers, quality journalism is encouraged.
In short: expertnews.me combines the best of twitter, RSS and a rated experts/authors directory.
