If you are active on the social web site, Twitter, skimming the news will be your mode of operation. You will see the most recent 140-character posts from all those you follow. But it is not as if you are reading a newspaper.
This is where the auto-generating platform “paper.li” comes in. Tweeps are able to “publish” daily news pages featuring whatever subjects are of interest to them. I am able to add or delete news items, move them around on the page, and add my own Editor’s note whenever I wish.
My four daily news pages include:
Speaking Up — A platform for my favorite important voices.
Many of us admire activists who stand up and speak out for what is right. I follow good people in Congress, prominent civil libertarians, popular bloggers, and effective journalists and writers. They speak up here.
I edit this material most every day. By moving items, deleting ones that are not pertinent and adding my own, it reflects my take on activism.
This is an edited auto-publication.
As the curator of my Twitter lists, from which these news items come, I take care that all the articles and headlines are those that are most significant, timely, unusual, or interesting to me.
It is one of the ways I quickly “keep up with the day.”
My lists of contributors to this paper (whom I follow) include:
Space, technology, the environment and science impact our lives daily.
This news source focuses on the Earth and its neighborhoods.
Good causes working to save the earth and its creatures are spotlighted.
I follow astronauts, NASA, science and technology news-makers, etc.
Their posts are presented here every day.
Enjoy! And then do your own part . . .
Mind Matters Daily — About “Mind Matters Daily”
As a retired clinical social worker, I remain interested in psychology, sociology, brain science, dreams and dreaming.
This paper.li is auto-generated using my Twitter lists, Good-causes & Newspapers & Magazines; as well as tweets from the Int’l Assn for Study of Dreams.
I personally edit the stories almost every day, moving or deleting to reflect my “take.” And I occasionally add pertinent news items I find.
