'News on Demand' Caters to Reader Attention Spans
from Columbia Journalism Review
Readers are busier than ever and their time is at a premium. Which is why journalist Marie-Catherine Beuth is developing News on Demand, a mobile news service that tailors information to users' attention spans. The app will present the day's five main news stories as articles of varying length, curated from numerous news sources, said Beuth. Users will then be able to read about the stories that most interest them, at the lengths that best suit the time they have available.
