Calling journalists, philosophers, media theorists, open activists, and anyone with strong opinions about news...
Over the past two years Fako Berkers and Edward Saperia have created an experimental framework called WikiFeed. It allows you to create open source algorithmic newsfeeds using semantic data and metadata from Wikimedia.
We think this could allow new transparent and collaborative approaches to editorial policy, and also be a powerful way to discover stories in niche areas.
We're running our first open workshop to experiment creating custom feeds. We'll teach you everything you need to know and be on hand to support. You'll need to bring a laptop. Remote participation is also possible - get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org
Both days are the same; it'll be a short intro followed by free time to experiment with the framework. You can attend as much as you like, but please register so we can gauge numbers.
A more detailed introduction to the underlying technology can be found here.
