The future of news. Right now.

July 21, 2011

Checking out: New app that visualizes cable news topics live  It’s all about the content analysis across platforms at the moment. A new OS X app called News Mapper, created by Synchronize.tv, lets users search for words or phrases, like Obamacare for example, or mentions of people, like Rupert Murdoch. The app then displays the frequency with which each word was mentioned. A graphical display is updated in real time as the coverage/mentions continues. I’m just now digging in to how it measures, wondering what exactly it measures and how useful of a tool it can be for digital journos. Thoughts? via @gigaomCory Tolbert Haik / Deputy editor, universal news
