There have had a few requests to include stories in our IndyRacePlace newspaper so I wanted to let everyone know how this paper works:
- I maintain a list of IndyCar drivers, teams, league folks, sponsors, media, bloggers and a small number of race fans who are connected to the sport.
- Paper.li scans that list each day and harvests the links, photos and videos shared by the folks on the list – the more items shared by members of the list, the more robust that newspaper will be.
- Paper.li selects and places all the news – if there were more hours in the day, I’d go move things around or kick out the extraneous inclusion, but the main point of the paper is to curate the latest news and opinions.
- Paper.li autotweets a link to each new edition at approximately 8:30 a.m. ET daily – if you follow me @IndyRacePlace, you’ll see that tweet in your timeline.
I have found stories and photos that I missed each day and feel the paper is a good way to capture and slow down the news a little when I need to catch up!
