The PressForward team will be leading a workshop on aggregation and curation at THATCamp CHNM, on June 15.
Here’s a description of the workshop:
Introduction to RSS Aggregation and Curation
Do you want an easier way to survey your field in order to identify and redistribute the most important information? In this workshop the editors of Digital Humanities Now will introduce tools to help you manage your reading list or set up your own publication. You will leave this hands-on workshop able to aggregate RSS subscriptions in Google Reader, use some method for filtering large streams of information, and republish selected items through either WordPress or Tumblr. After practicing aggregating and filtering all together, we will break into small groups based on publication method: WordPress.com and Tumblr users; those with self-hosted WordPress installations; and those producing multi-editor publications using WordPress.
