“mini-me” Water and Sanitation Newspapers

Mon, 28Nov2011

Thanks to paper.li out of Switzerland “…based at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technoloseegy (EPFL) – Innovation Center (Lausanne, Switzerland)” there is an abundance of “mini-me” newspapers based on tweets Facebook postings etc….  More details are below.  Here is a list of some of  the Water / Sanitation papers that use paper.li   Some are better than others.


how it works (source http://support.paper.li/entries/20023257-what-is-paper-li )

How does Paper.li work? 

Anyone with a Twitter or Facebook account can log-in and create a paper. We provide you with easy to use tools to select your content. You choose your content streams and can create queries and searches based on Twitter users, #tags, keywords, Facebook, your own Twitter timeline, Google+ users, RSS feeds and more.
After you have chosen your sources, we go to work. Behind the scenes, it goes something like this:
  • we extract all tweets that include URLs based on your content selection
  • we extract the content found on these URLs:
    • text, e.g. blog post, newspaper article
    • photo, e.g. Flickr, yfrog, Twitpic, …
    • video, e.g. YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, …
  • analyze the extracted text for language ( EN, ES…) and for topic, e.g. Politics, Technology, …
  • surface the day’s most relevant articles (using paper.li magic)
  • construct a newspaper frontpage using the filtered articles, photos and videos

the links can also be found on WASHLink’s media tab
