The Gist

The Gist logo

Existing news topic pages are static, usually just a reverse-chronological list of stories about a given topic or category. The Gist remakes the traditional news website’s topic page into an interactive, human-curated hub that summarizes current events by assembling content and conversations from across the web (social media, the homepage, and other news sources). A curated hub gives reporters more ownership over the topic, and allows audience to drive the conversation and highlight story points that might otherwise be drowned out.

The Gist prototype was developed at SNDMakes Austin. Read more from teammate Adam Schweigert at the INN Nerds blog.
