360 News

Periodically share a list of links one is interested in (a la ) to trusted friends (a la Wikipedia:360-degree feedback ) who can then vote for each (a la ) to consume the top ordered list accordingly

  • allowing free text comment or link to potentially better material
  • in exchange for the time they spend on your list you also vote for their list.
  • option "Add to my list" while voting for others lists


  • UI
    • Ordered list of decreasing font size
    • actions per article : read (possible notification if upvoted by a trustee), delete
  • identify criteria to sort (e.g. length, topic, medium, date of publication, author, institution, ...)
    • can be used for ML too but without having a context, i.e. how the trustee perceive the user

  • subscribe to a topic

    3. provide a visualization that displays "impact" news

Repeat periodically.
