Yahoo! To Come Full Circle With News Link Curation Site

Yahoo! started out as a hand-curated directory of links and will now recognize the value of manual curation again in a new project to be run by respected online journalist Andrew Golis. That according to Golis himself, who comes from Talking Points Memo – a site widely recognized as one of the best examples of new journalism online.

“The site will be a combination of curation and original reporting,” Golis wrote this morning on his personal blog, “with gregarious linking and sharp, smart writing. In other words… I’m going to be building a team to bring the most popular news site in the United States into the news link economy.”

We assume the new site will be enabled by all kinds of news research technologies to unearth hot content, but in creating this kind of site Yahoo is acting on a feeling many people have about the fast-flowing real-time river of news: it’s best navigated with a combination of machine and human editorial input. Information curation is hot already and will probably only get hotter as a (great) job in the near future.

Golis is currently the Deputy Publisher of Talking Points Memo. He joined the company in 2006, has a Harvard degree and lives in Sunnyside, New York. He’s married to prominent feminist author Jessica Valenti.
