Techmeme Now Deploys Human Editing Of News
Gabe Rivera, has informed us that “automated news doesn’t quite work.” He explains that due to the issues Techmeme’s algorithms have with speed, grouping stories and primary source – Techmeme will be adding in a layer of human editing to the news aggregation.
Gabe explained that now a human editor will “explicitly” mix headlines on Techmeme, as opposed to implicitly changing the home page. Gabe said this will result in the news on Techmeme getting “faster and more interesting.” This will first be noticed on Techmeme.com, and then slowly be migrated over to the other meme properties they run.
