Summify Spotlight – Nathan Chase

Our Summify Spotlight series showcases how everyday people use Summify, sharing their productivity tips and favorite sources to help you get the most out of your summaries.

About Nathan: Nathan Chase is a multimedia designer and developer living in central Florida, an online culture and social networking enthusiast, a proud father, an avid PC and console gamer, an incessant movie watcher, known for an eclectic musical taste, periodically avoiding being shot by paintballs, and often writing and performing music – on the drums, guitar, piano, or computer. He is also co-founder of the popular movie ranking tool, Flickchart.

What problem does Summify solve for you?

I’ve been looking for a solution to remove the “noise” from the “signal” of the deluge of daily content the web brings us for years. The amount of sharing is growing so fast that it makes it difficult to keep up with what’s important. Note, this means what’s important to me, not what generally constitutes “important news”. Social networks, in general, tend to focus our efforts and allow us to gather our attention towards those we either care about or respect. So, it’s incredible that it’s taken as long as it has for a company to create something that actually incorporates the benefits these social networks provide.

Summify is by far the closest thing to what I’ve imagined was capable of accomplishing the task. Using Summify, I’m able to hook into these networks (Google, Twitter, Facebook) and properly harness the power of influence and trends within those networks to deliver the absolute, must-know items of the day. With Summify delivering my “top 10″ stories every 4 hours, I can rely on the knowledge that if it was important, I didn’t miss it. It also, by virtue of using the likes, comments, and share totals, is able to mostly eliminate duplicate content from permeating my news feed. There’s nothing more annoying than receiving the same piece of news 9 different ways, so it’s a welcome respite from a sea of sources all talking about the same stuff over, and over, and over again.

What does Summify help you achieve?

I’m an early adopter, and a junkie for staying on top of the latest news, stories, and events within my interests via the Internet. After using so many different types of sites and tools, it’s apparent that many fail to understand the multi-layered complexities that are inherent in a user’s interests. It’s not about me putting in my top 10 interest keywords and getting something back that’s marginally interesting. I want something that uses what I’ve already personally curated to filter out the uninteresting and ephemeral, and to do it without significant effort on my part.

Since I work as both a freelancer designer, and a web startup founder/designer/developer/marketer/social media manager, it’s essential to keep eyes and ears open for the bleeding edge of technologies and innovations that are happening throughout the industry or what specifically pertains to my startup, Flickchart, with its focus on movies. I can quickly ascertain if there’s something I need to follow or cover within the film industry, or catch a topic that’s hitting the web design world, all within my Summify digests. It’s powerful stuff. Not to mention that all the while I’ve also got a wife and kids, an indie rock band, and all the latest TV, video games, and other entertainment vying for my attention. We all could use a little help getting to the good stuff so that we can spend more time learning and less time searching.

The key to why I think Summify’s different is that it doesn’t try to give me everything. It only gives me the best – in digests. Other solutions often overwhelm with options or simply too much content. The mobile view in particular is my preferred interface to Summify now, so that I can make sure to get the latest stories wherever I’m at.

Did you have a solution before Summify?

I’ve always relied on RSS and Google Reader to bring me the news I want, rather than what media hubs, businesses, and corporations think I want. I’ve certainly tried other services; My6Sense, Redux, Favit, Xydo, Cadmus, and several others that just didn’t take hold with me. The biggest problem is that it has to be simple, it has to be accurate, and it absolutely has to work with Google Reader given the investment I’ve put into it as a tool. So many other services expect me to pull in my RSS feeds one at a time, or give me no way to pull in my subscriptions at all. Summify’s the one that’s worked the best amidst the services I already use.

Do you use any other tools in conjunction with Summify?

I still rely on the original sources Summify pulls from (Google Reader, Twitter, and Facebook) to stay on top of things up-to-the-minute – and also now on Google+. For Google Reader, Google+, and Facebook, I use their web apps or mobile counterparts, but for Twitter, I almost exclusively use TweetDeck for its power user capabilities. I’m also still a user and fan of social aggregator, FriendFeed, for all of the social innovations it’s inspired at Facebook and Google+. I also occasionally frequent more specific content aggregation portals like Reddit or BuzzFeed to find things that might be trending outside of my social circles.

What advice can you offer for Summifyers to help them get the most out of their summaries?

I’d say the best thing to do is to not be afraid to follow more people on Twitter, or subscribe to more people on Facebook. Likewise, don’t limit yourself to only a few RSS feeds in Google Reader. Seek out more quality sources and your digest will only improve. I’m currently subscribed to 318 different RSS feeds within tech, gadgets, trends, development, music, gaming, and a lot of other niches. The more variety there is to analyze, the better quality selections Summify can make.

10 of my favorite blogs:

Engadget – obsessive daily coverage of everything new in gadgets and consumer electronics
Neatorama – new and neat stuff
Smashing Magazine – online magazine for pro Web designers and developers, focusing on techniques and best practices

Introducing Weekly Top 3 Stories

A couple of weeks ago we posted a question to Twitter and Facebook asking Summifyers, “What would you like to see on the Summify blog?” Dain Binder was kind enough to share his thoughts, and we’ve decided to run with one of the ideas, trying something new: Weekly Top Stories – the three biggest stories shared through the Summify community each week. Enjoy!

1. Exclusive: Computer Virus Hits U.S. Drone Fleet


A computer virus has infected the cockpits of America’s Predator and Reaper drones, logging pilots’ every keystroke as they remotely fly missions over Afghanistan and other warzones.

2. Last American Who Knew What The Fuck He Was Doing Dies



Steve Jobs, the visionary co-founder of Apple Computers and the only American in the country who had any clue what the fuck he was doing, died Wednesday at the age of 56. “We haven’t just lost a great innovator, leader, and businessman, we’ve literally lost the only person in this country who actually…

3. KERNTYPE: a kerning game



Your mission is simple: achieve pleasant and readable text by distributing the space between letters. Typographers call this activity kerning. Your solution will be compared to typographer’s solution, and you will be given a score depending on how close you nailed it. Good luck! Post your scores in the comment section!

#Summify Growing in Europe and A Canadian Visa Push – News Roundup

 

Top-10 European Countries ranked by web traffic on Summify
(percentages represent each country’s portion of the top-10 traffic)

 

European Traffic Highlights – July to September, 2011

It’s been an expansive three months for Summify traffic over in Europe and we’ve been noticing un poco más de español in our HootSuite search streams. In just three months, the Spaniards have risen up from sixth place to third in Summify’s European Top-10 Traffic List and we have sneaking suspicion that it could be a love affair with our new like button.

Not ready to fall back, France and the UK continue to dominate Summify’s European traffic, holding the first and second spots respectively. Although not displayed above, France’s absolute traffic doubled from August to September – a little je ne sais quoi?

Last, but certainly not least, Russia nudges Switzerland aside and breaks through into the 10th spot on our European traffic list, thanks to our comrades @ru_lh (Lifehacker.ru).

Take a look at what the Europeans are saying, as happy Summifyers continue spreading the word about Summify across the continent:

 

Mashable.fr – 32 billion daily publications in 30 months on Facebook?

Roughly translated from French

A few months ago, Mark Zuckerberg was asked, about a new Moore’s Law: every year, Facebook users share twice as much as the previous year (“Every year, we are sharing Twice the Amount That we shared a year Before”).

The 2010 data indicated that the current 2 billion daily publications could double in 2011. This gives it a staggering 32 billion items published in Facebook every day in 2014 …

Is this possible or are we being played to be afraid? Considering that Africa and Asia are potential markets … What is certain is that by 2014 there will be at least this amount of daily publications all over the Net. Without a doubt.

Social Sharing and the Impending Sharepocalypse [INFOGRAPHIC]

Lifehacker.ru – Summify: read only the most interesting

Roughly translated from Russian

“Immediately after your registration, Summify takes about 2 hours to generate your first summary. During this time, Summify examines content sources and builds links between them. According to my observations the first summary is not the best or relevant. But each time the service starts to amaze me more and more. Even when generating a summary 4 times/day, summify miraculously picked up the posts and tweets that I would not have found myself in a heap of rubbish, and that definitely interested me.

Ironically, it turned out that the service works fine with Russian articles, tweets, and in general with any Russian-language content.”

SmartBlog.es – Create summaries of social networking feeds with Summify

Translated from Spanish

Fully integrated with Facebook, Twitter and Google Reader, you can easily publish the news you’ve found that is most interesting to you. In addition to these options for sharing, Summify’s iPhone app offers you the possibility to send the link by email or save it to Instapaper for later reading .

Finally, another interesting feature of Summify is its ability to track the reactions people have had to the content that is included in your summary of the press. With this quick and intuitive orderly feature you will know how many people have RT’d an article, how many people have clicked “Like” on Facebook and you can read the comments people made when they shared the article on Facebook or Twitter.

Thanks to all these features I think Summify will be a program that I’m going to use often because of the orderly way it tracks all the social network feeds without having to check the individual applications or websites, thus saving time.

K-tuin – Summify for iPhone, a summary of the news 2.0

Translated from Spanish

Thanks to the Summify iPhone application I will find a summary of the news shared on Twitter, Facebook or Google Reader from the last few hours. You can set how often you want the application to compile the news shared on your social networks. It is very easy to not spend too much time looking for the most commented on stuff in the 2.0 world, as you can see the reactions from your contacts and friends right on the news story.

 

Pushing For A Canadian Startup Visa

The Globe and Mail – Immigrant tech stars face hurdles in quest to start business in Canada

“[Canada] will not remain a global superpower if we continue to close our doors to people who want to come here to work hard, start businesses and pursue the American dream,” Mr. Bloomberg said in June. “Today, we may have turned away the next Albert Einstein or Sergey Brin.”

[...]

It’s a high-risk, high-reward path. For every Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google, there are a few thousand unknown failures. Mr. Pasoi and Mr. Strat are being assisted by Vancouver’s Bootup Labs, which describes itself as a “startup accelerator.”

“We’ve tried explaining to Immigration that we’re not here to steal jobs. If we wanted, we could work for established companies. But our dream is to build a startup,” Mr. Pasoi said. “We’re trying to make a company and hire people in Canada but it’s difficult.”

Vancouver Sun – Tech sector calls for ‘startup visa’ program

A British Columbia-based advocacy group, which has backing from some prominent Vancouver tech investors, is urging the government to make it easier for immigrants with science and technology skills to move here and create new businesses.

[...]

They recommend that the rules be modified to require a prospective business operator to have $150,000 [from $300,000] in seed capital from qualified venture capitalists, and be actively managing the company. He or she must also create at least three local full-time equivalent jobs over two years.

The current Canadian rules aren’t keeping pace with the rapid emergence of start up companies internationally in the tech sector, nor the relative youth of those involved with them, nor the risk that such entrepreneurs are increasingly sought after around the world.

As the struggle for our founders’ visas continues, we’re going full steam ahead. Expect many more updates as Summify continues to fight content chaos and grow around the world – we’re not going anywhere, we’re going everywhere.

Needed: The Busy-Person’s News Reader

Photo Credit: gettyimages.ca

Albert Wegner (from Union Square Ventures) has a great post up where he talks about  the need for an Opposing View Reader, a news reader where you can see stories from different angles, with different opinions. While it’s a very important problem (and a really tough one to solve!),  we also wanted to draw attention to a similarly urgent issue – the need for a “Busy-Person’s” Reader. But first, let’s debunk a myth…

 

The Perfect News Reader

The usual review or feedback of a product in the news space ends up being something like this:

it’s great for use-cases X & Y, but I won’t use it for all my news reading because of reason Z“.

Ever since we’ve been in the news reading space, we’ve seen this common theme of the “Perfect Reader” that should exist, but nobody has built it… yet!

It’s arguably understandable why people could expect a perfect reader — lots of industries are like this: social networking = Facebook, search = Google, news = ??? — but  after talking to news readers, from casual Twitter users to “1000-feeds-need-to-read-them-all” junkies, we believe there’s no such thing as a perfect reader. It doesn’t exist . News reading behaviours are too diverse! On average, we’ve found that people actually have 2-4 news sources that they use daily to get their news, in very different ways. For example, it could be Twitter for real-time news, Reddit for funny pictures and cool comments and Summify for when you’re busy and just want to be on top of what’s happening… whatever the mix is that suits you, we think it’s OK! It’s OK to have more than one tool in your news toolbox, and it turns out that’s how most people actually consume it in the offline world as well: newspaper, TV, radio, etc.

Why a “Busy-Person’s” Reader?

It all starts from the explosion in social sharing that’s happening on the Internet right now. There’s lots of content, growing at an exponential rate, and an increasing focus on real-time breaking news, whatever is happening NOW. Well, that means a lot of interruptions and I think we all know that interruptions and frequent context switches significantly affect productivity, especially in activities that require a high level of concentration (most modern jobs).

At the same time, nobody wants to be left out of the “loop” and not be aware of what’s going on today in the (my) world. So how do you balance lots of information, constant interruptions and the need to still be productive during the day? With a “Busy-Person” Reader, of course!

We think Seth Godin explained it best  (Day old news is fresh enough):

The value of breaking news (news = whatever is new to you) is dramatically overrated, and the cost of keeping up with what someone else thinks is urgent is just too high.

If it’s important today, it will be important tomorrow. Far more productive to do the work instead of monitoring what’s next.

We’d like to hear what do you think. Is there a need for a “Busy-Person’s” Reader? If so, what would it look like? We obviously have some ideas on the subject (hint: check our homepage), but we’d really love to hear other opinions.

Sharing on #Summify Gets Easier With New Like and Share Buttons

We’re fans of simplicity and sometimes we should take our own advice – KISS – keep it simple Summify. In this spirit, we’ve made liking and sharing stories from your summaries easier for you – no more clicking multiple buttons to share to multiple networks from your email or the web (like you guys actually did that anyway – we wouldn’t have). Here’s a quick look at the changes we made.

Before and After: Summify’s Like and Share Button Enhancements

Email and RSS Before

The presentation of your summary in email and RSS (e.g. Google Reader) are very similar so we’ve grouped them together here.

No like button existed and there were separate buttons for sharing to Twitter, Facebook, and Google Reader – talk about clickphobia.

Email and RSS Now

You’ll now see a Like button and just one super Share button, allowing for universal sharing from one spot.

Web Before

The Like button was only visible when you hovered your mouse on a story title and there were separate share buttons for Facebook, Twitter, Google Reader, email and Instapaper.

Web Now

The Like button is always visible and can be found under each story with it’s hearty new look. All previous share buttons have been consolidated into one super Share button.

The Share Bar, which you see when reading a story on the web, also showcases the Like button’s lovely new look.

So what happens when I click…?

Clicking the Like button helps teach Summify what you enjoy reading, and you will also Like the story on Facebook if one of the story’s sources was a Facebook user.

Clicking the Share button, regardless of where you find it, will bring up a universal share box for all of your networks.

Web

Email and RSS

Mobile – share from email

What more could you possibly ask for? Yeah yeah we know, Google+!

“I heard Google released the API, so why are you Summify slugs taking so long?!” Nobody actually said that to us, but it might be what you’re thinking, so here’s an update. The Google+ API is currently read-only, so at the moment we can only get the public activity of one of your friends when what we really need is all the activity of all of your friends. On top of that, we’re unable to share content to Google+ yet. Rest assured, when Google+ is ready to be added to the Summify experience, you’ll be the first to know. For now, enjoy the new buttons and expect to see an iPhone update coming up in October!

Code Reviews: A Framework for Startups

You know how your teachers and parents always told you to get a friend to proofread your paper before you handed it in for marks? Well, it’s age-old advice for a reason.

There’s a lot of electronic papers, ie. code, being handed in here at Summify and when most of that code will be affecting a @#$@ load of data, reviews become critically important. Until last week, our squad captains, Mircea Pasoi and Cristian Strat, were reviewing all the Summify code – not the most sustainable practice. It was time to bring the entire team into the code review process, but we needed a structure to help guide the move. The following framework has been working well for us and we wanted to share it with you.

Our tool of choice for code reviews is Review Board.

Getting Your Review On

1) Goals

Eliminate bugs as early as possible

Share knowledge to learn other sections of the code, new libraries, tricks, and algorithms

2) Take your time

Doing so will speed things up. It may sound like a paradox, but finding bugs in later stages, such as post-release, can cost 10-100 times more than it would cost to catch them during review. The following data on fixing bugs is from the book Code Complete.


If you ever catch yourself thinking “Oh, I’m kind of busy, should I really bother nitpicking this piece of code?” the answer is always Yes. You might find a bug which will save your team hours upon hours of work down the road – think longer term.

3) Ensure correctness

When done properly, a code review is one of the most effective ways of detecting bugs. A proper code review will detect about 55% of bugs, double the effectiveness of unit tests (see the below table from Code Complete).

Everyone has experienced those moments when someone looks at your code for 10 seconds and points out a ginormous filthy bug, right under your nose, despite the fact that you were looking at it for the last 3 hours. Sadly for them, it doesn’t mean they’re 12,000 times smarter than you; they just have the fresh eye and the clear mind.

When you’re reviewing someone’s code, you’re the fresh onlooker and you’re in a very good place to spot bugs, so do it.

4) Demand quality

Don’t be afraid to ask for unit tests, good refactoring, and adherence to coding style. Never accept code that’s of lower quality than the average code found in the repository.

Demanding quality during reviews begets quality further down the road, leading to faster test writing, second nature coding style and fewer lazy habits, refactoring code when necessary. Remember, you’re not slowing things down, you’re just forcing people to learn how to write good code, fast.

Also, always ask for screenshots when the change involves UI.

Besides being a code reviewer, it’s equally important to submit good code for review. Here are some tips:

Submitting Quality Code – That’s Your Job

1) Don’t rely on reviewers to find bugs – submit code with confidence

You should be so sure of your code quality, personally unable to find any more bugs, that you’d be happy to deploy it into production right away, even without a review process. Your reviewer may come up with something you haven’t thought of, but never lower your own standards.

2) Reviewers have a tough life

Understand that your reviewer only sees a diff and some bug types are very hard to detect this way. For instance, if your change requires that you search for all occurrences of function X in the code, your reviewer cannot confirm you did an exhaustive search. That’s your responsibility.

It’s also your responsibility to think about the implications of your changes. Does it break the iPhone? Does it break the archiving process? Does it grind the website to a halt? Realizing these implications is 80% of an engineer’s job. This is the meat, the hard questions engineers must think through. Remember the time when you thought something over for five hours and then made a two-line change? The hard part was figuring out if that was the right change, and that’s your job; it’s not the reviewer’s.

If you find yourself thinking “Hmm… I’m gonna change this but I don’t know if I’m breaking stuff,” then you’re not doing your job, and you’re offloading your work to the reviewer.

3) Run the tests

Reviewers won’t do this for you and they can’t figure out if you break tests. Better yet, implement continuous integration – we use Jenkins.

4) Leave no comment behind

When submitting a second or third diff for the same change, your reviewer assumes that for every comment he or she wrote you either

a) implemented the change, or
b) replied to it

Don’t expect the reviewer to go through the list of previous comments and validate that you’ve addressed each one. That’s your job.

5) Attach screenshots if you’ve made a UI change.

6) Learn and improve

Learn from mistakes and shape up your code. Shoot for a 90% “perfect ship-it” rate. Every time your reviewer has to return your code, a kitten dies. When you pass 90% it means the code review process really works and everyone’s doing a great job.

Sharing the code review responsibilities across our team is really paying off and soon we’ll be leaps and bounds ahead of where we were just a few weeks ago. It feels like we’ve upgraded to Summify v1.1. A few more upgrades like this and we’ll be an unstoppable kick-ass team, sort of like a Canadian version of The A-Team, or an organized crime syndicate – the Summify Mafia. Anyways… until then, we’ll continue asking ourselves “how can we improve team processes and communication to increase productivity?”

Are you doing code reviews? Share your thoughts, productivity tips and questions below.

P.S. Please, think of the kittens.

Summify Spotlight – Jodi Ettenberg

Very quickly, Jodi’s @legalnomads Twitter handle became familiar to me as she happily sent out Summify referrals into the Twitterverse and asked us questions about our latest updates. I had to know more about her. After seeing a recent tweet about her podcast interview on Suitcase Entrepreneur, I took a listen. It turns out she’s a rather interesting former lawyer gone world traveler who shares my love for SE Asia, and that right there is what our new Summify Spotlight series is all about – exposing new sources and encouraging new connections by shining the light on the wonderfully different and fascinating Summifyers in our community.

About Jodi: After working as a lawyer for five years to save up money for travel, she quit her job and bought a one-way ticket to Chile. Over three years later, she has traipsed through South America, Siberia, Mongolia, China and a good swath of Southeast Asia, with no plans to stop anytime soon. Throughout, Jodi has blogged about her misadventures on local transportation, her obsessive love of street food and the politics of the places she visits. She currently works as a freelance writer and photographer (while trying to eat as much sticky rice as possible).

Enter Jodi Ettenberg

Jodi with Pancake the Tiger - Chiang Mai, Thailand

How do you like to consume your news?

As social media and travel become more tightly intertwined, services and apps have cropped up to streamline the digestion process. Be it aggregators like PopUrls or talented curators like Brain Pickings or Kottke, funneling the tremendous volume of information can be an exhausting endeavor for those who want to stay current. As a result, I’ve come to value services that allow me to tailor information and fast-track the most relevant stories straight to my inbox. Summify has proven an excellent addition to my tools.

As someone who has been travelling and eating my way around the world for the last few years, I’ve found myself in a bit of a strange position. I’m a hard news and technology junkie, but I’m often in extremely remote places. While I have thoroughly enjoyed disconnecting from the Internet during trips to Laos or Myanmar or Mongolia, I’ve returned wanting to know what I missed in the world. It’s not about connecting with others (though I do miss the interaction) so much as keeping myself attuned to what goes on elsewhere. I didn’t want to return home from longer stretches of travel and find myself unaware of what happened in the interim. Reverse culture shock was much easier to handle when there were points of news to discuss with family and friends, and I knew what was going on in the world.

Jodi with Pa-O tribeswomen - Inle Lake, Burma

Enter Summify. I initially heard of them via Twitter, of course, and signed up from my apartment in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I’ve been using them since early 2010 and have foisted the service on anyone who will listen, especially journalist friends who have a need to consume a serious amount of information but rarely the corresponding time to do so. Despite not having a traditional job, doing freelance writing and travel photography requires at a lot of moving around, away from the computer. Besides, how would I sit and read BBC News on a train to Siberia? Even if there was WiFi (there isn’t) I’d prefer to chat with a local family about what they ate for dinner. So instead, I get an email from Summify listing the 10 top stories from my networks. I’ve recently increased the frequency to twice-a-day summaries in an aim to tailor the service further.

How do you use Summify?

When people ask about my social media tools, I suggest Summify first because each user’s feeds can be whittled down to what they want their summary to be. Ultimately what we each think is relevant is a subjective and moving target, so the amount of tailoring is an important feature for the service. I receive a lot of fellow travel bloggers’ feeds on Google Reader and I tend to use Twitter as an RSS feed, following few people and using it for location and news updates as I travel. My aim was for Summify to supplement my news access when I was unable to remain online, to be my bulletin for the prior day.

Working in El Nido - Palawan, Philippines

It’s been a great success for me, floating the stories my network has highlighted during the course of the day while at the same time allowing me to “x” out domains that I don’t want to appear or “thumbs up”ing articles I want to see more of. Over my months of use, I’ve seen my Summify moving more and more toward hard news, science and technology, which was my aim in signing up.

I’ve been recommending Summify in podcasts or interviews, and when they approached me to participate in their new spotlight series, I was happy to explain how the tool has worked for me. It’s been a very satisfying supplement to an active Twitter community and some choice curators, and I’m looking forward to seeing how they tweak the service going forward.

Some interesting follows I recommend:

@pkedrosky – investor, media guy, humanist, hater of fluorescent lights
@brainpicker – interestingness curator & semi-secret geek obsessed with design…
@mathewi – senior writer at GigaOm, former journalist for The Globe and Mail…
@markmackinnon – East Asia correspondent for The Globe and Mail…
@antderosa – Social Media Editor at Reuters…
@openculture – The best FREE cultural & educational media on the web…
@kirstinbutler – Cultural canary, unapologetic generalist, pie-lover…
