A Personalized News World
• Newspaper comes to you.
• TV comes to you.
• Internet asked you to go to its sources.
– That was worth it! They were good sources.
– But it was still took away the passive
• Now the best of all of it is coming back to
you. But you can interact.
The Bundled Model
• Traditional news sources compiled all news you
– Competition was to be best at presenting a package.
– From Israel to stock quotes.
– From sports to local news.
– Get it all here!!! Not there!
– A tremendous service.
The Bundled Model
• So we were asking a newspaper to:
– Perform what is an artistic, academic, intellectual
exercise: journalism, photography and design
– Perform a commercial activity: advertising
– Perform an industrial process
– Print, organize and produce a daily “book”
– Distribute it – trucks
– Oh and be a digital technology company too!

• The internet.
• You’re no longer dependent on what the
bundlers brought you.

Users Fought Back

It Started Coming Back to You

up your perfect news
• Theory: Others might be
able to distribute news
better than news source.
• But it’s geeky=difficult
What Twitter Teaches Us
• It’s not that Twitter is the answer.
– The answer is what Twitter shows us.
– We can now consume again, rather than seek.
– Filter perfectly to our tastes
– But people now punish publishers.
– Not by changing channel or stopping subscription.
– Simply ‘unfollowing.’
– You get unfollowed, you’re out!
– At its best, the social medium is a perpetual,
personalized news service about topics of
your choosing — whether health care reform,
tech news or the latest episode of
“Gossip Girl” — filtered and served to you by
people who care a lot about what you care a
