Google Living Stories

by

LivingStories was a news presentation experiment undertaken in partnership between Google, the Washington Post, and the New York Times. LivingStories consolidated relevant stories under a specific heading, made available under one URL. This was intended to allow a user to easily understand the development of a story by providing a timeline of events and links to opinion pieces, features, and news articles in one place. While the partnership was shut down, LivingStories is an interesting attempt at changing the way we read news. It is reminiscent of Wikipedia’s approach, which consolidates current information into the format of an encyclopedia article.
