Time To Hack On SVT – Same Same But Different


This is a repost of my blog post “Dags att hacka SVT” at Swedish media blog Same Same But Different discussing the need and relevancy of more open APIs within public service companies such as Sveriges Television (SVT), Swedish public service broadcasting company. SR, Swedish public service radio, recently released its first open API being the first puclic service company in the Nordics to do that.

Here’s a pretty decent Google translation in English.

Interesting Publishing Concept – The Blogpaper beta launched

Readers can discuss and rate stories, the stories with the highest ratings are then printed in the paper version


This is very exciting and probable future publishing concept. To let bloggers themselves upload content of their choice and use crowdsourcing through rating to decide which posts get published. User generated content together with curated content are the two key factors of future publishing, both online and in printed media. Since printed news media need to reinvent itself to coexist with online media I can see this progressing to include even news media. Why not distribute once/couple of times a week a printed version of, for example, the most read and commented online articles, curated by the editorial staff. There’re so many opportunities… one just first have to start seeing the opportunities. What’s going on right now is already taken care of the real-time web.


We’ve already had a similiar experiment earlier this summer in Sweden. Sofia Mirjamsdotter aka Mymlan, the Swedish blogger and social media queen, launched together with Måns Adler, founder of Bambuser, a joint project to publish the best blog posts as printed version. Instead of letting people to rate which posts to get printed, the selection was done by the editor. The business model would consist of revenue sharing with the bloggers published.
