Frans Mäyrä Daily

One of the clear strengths of social media lies in its capabilities for filtering – sometimes dubbed ‘collective intelligence’ by a fancy name. Wisdom of the crowds helps in finding those golden nuggets among all that chaff. One of the most useful tools (apart from Flipboard for iPad, which is sort of half-way there) is the web-based service which builds a news-site style layout of the most popular materials that have been circulating among your Twitter contacts during the last 24 hours. Rather than trying to follow the buzzing stream around the clock and checking out everything personally, it is now possible to see what were the ‘trending topics’ that were recently shared and discussed in the network. This is still an ‘alpha’ release, but already rather usable and worth testing out. Here is link to “Frans Mäyrä Daily”: Frans Mäyrä Daily

One thought on “Frans Mäyrä Daily”

  1. This kinda of remind me of the Qwiki project [], which creates videos for every word or information asked. Of course, those are completely different outputs, but the software must work in a similar way, hierarchicing and setting data in a semantic way.
