The Darwin Awareness Engine™ helps users track Web and Enterprise 2.0 events, uncover emerging trends and gain faster understanding of complex issues. To demonstrate the value of this new way to present time-sensitive and contextual information, we have dedicated a two new Darwin Edition to stories getting a lot of coverage at the moment. First, there is a Darwin Edition covering information relating to the ever growing stories around Rupert Murdoch’s news empire as it confronts the phone hacking scandal and its aftershocks. Second, a separate Darwin Edition is covering news around the US Debt Ceiling Crisis.
In these editions, we present recent news, blogs and social media mentioning this topic. As with all editions we are acting as reporters here and allowing all sides of the issue to come through. We picked the Murdoch scandal and the Debt Ceiling Crisis as they represent a focused and constantly changing topics with the likely emergence of unanticipated news.
Users can observe the emergence of topics of interest, and with a mouse-over and click, see the Web events that relate with the selection. This makes awareness and discovery much faster than managing alerts, search queries, or browsing through countless news/blogs/social web sites.
Try our Murdoch Hacking Scandal Edition and our US Debt Ceiling Crisis Edition. Let us know what you think. See our post: Darwin Awareness Engine™ Edition Series: Part One – Explanation and Instructions for more about the series and how to make the most of it. Here is a screen from the Murdoch Hacking Scandal Edition.
With these Editions you can either look at the general buzz from these sites or choose attractors to focus on specific topics of interest. The default shows you what has happened in the target content sources in the last hour. You can expand it to the last two hours, 24 hours and even last 200 hours. You can focus on the more formal sources or the informal ones (bloggers) or look across both. Again, details instructions can be found in our post on instructions.
We hope that you find these Darwin Editions useful and will certainly appreciate any feedback. Please contact us at feedback@DarwinEco.com.
