The Duke River
Duke University news and commentary. Learn more.
What is a river of news? It's a flow of news items aggregated from a collection of RSS newsfeeds. Read Dave Winer on why every news organization [or university] should have a river.
Duke Today, at http://today.duke.edu, provides an excellent curation of news, photos, videos and links. We check it daily. But, it has only a fraction of the total amount of information flowing through the university on any given day. (The Duke Events calendar, at http://calendar.duke.edu/events/, is the central calendar for campus activities listings.)
The Duke River is a side project of Anton Zuiker, communications director in the Duke Department of Medicine, the largest of 24 departments within the Duke School of Medicine. I need a way to monitor more of the information flowing through the School of Medicine - and other schools, such as Nursing and Engineering. Often, the news from beyond our department is useful to my faculty, because it provides collaborative opportunities and research insights.
