A NEW TWIST ON THE OLD TOPIX GAME HITS THE INTERNET


Over the past few weeks I have noticed that there have been some interesting “articles” showing up in my local newspaper in a special section dedicated to Casey Anthony. I was a bit puzzled since when I picked up my local paper at the newsstand the content was not there. I had one of those WTF is going on? moments until I did a bit of research.

NOTE THE FIRST SENTENCE. A CURATION SERVICE. THIS IS THE EXACT SAME CLAIM THAT TOPIX MAKES.


The REALITY is that the articles that popped up were actually a twist on both Topix and the “Letters to the Editor” sections of the past. In other words, a new twist on an old game.

So the question is, just what the hell is going on here? The answer is provided from the “horses’ mouth so to speak:

A (very) short introduction

Paper.li is a content curation service. It enables people to publish newspapers based on topics they like and treat their readers to fresh news, daily.

We believe that people (and not machines) are the ones qualified to curate the content that matters most. We also think that these same people can greatly help their own communities to find their way through this “massive content world” we live in. We’re here to help!

Every day, around the world, millions of articles are featured on Paper.lis, benefiting millions of readers. We are just at the beginning of an exciting new adventure and we think we’re on to something good.

We love the semantic web, we respect our content creators, we strive for simplicity, and we thrive on feedback.

Read our blog, follow us on Twitter: @smallrivers, talk to us feedback@paper.li

Look who is showing up in my LOCAL newspaper. How cute.


So, just like TOPIX, people are free to write whatever they please with little or no oversight of the newspaper. Complaints have to be sent to the FOREIGN

USA MEDIA AVOIDS LIABILITY BY PASSING ON TO FOREIGN SOURCES THE ABILITY OF CYBER ABUSERS TO CARRY ON


provider of the service taking the responsibility and headache AWAY from the newspapers in dealing with any complaints.

Just another nugget in the old shell game.

Stay Tuned

    Looks to me that heifer is behind all the lousy shit on the net!

    Yep there is a lot of bull shit going on over there. How pathetic to have to make up lies just to get people to talk to you. Trash.

    • If you check the two blogs and the articles Holly wrote, you would get the impression that the articles made the front page of the actual paper rather than an on line insert run by a Content Custodial services similar to Topix.

    Why are so many people doing the evil just to be “famous.” Oh I talked to Casey and have her diary. Big fucking deal. Just another wanna be. Get ouside and smell the roses girl and maybe lose a little weight while you are out there. Are you really as bitter as the the rest of your small minded friends?

    • People have this desire to brag that they were on a big show like Nancy Grace or made it big in their paper. They do not understand the term “Fame is fleeting.” You are famous one minute and forgotten the next. The vast majority of the public has forgotten about the videos and have moved on. NOBODY would ever be able to answer who Holly Briley is in a trivial persuit game which she would never make anyway.

        Except you, Murt. You had the desire to be “big” in the Trenton Duckett case and then again in the Caylee Anthony case. You are correct that “fame is fleeting”. The only difference is that your misdeeds will be FOREVER captured. Holly didnt do what you did – not to the Duckett family NOR to the Anthony case. Grow up, Murt. Get a set of balls and ADMIT your wrong acts. That will be the ONLY way you’ll move on. You are a fucking PUNK.

        • I see you decided to come back for more drama. What happened to the name (S)trolling? Ashamed of THAT name are you?

          I accounted for any mistakes I made in regards to the Duckett case YEARS ago and even did so on TELEVISION.

          YOU ADVOCATED THE MURDER OF FOUR CHILDREN, REMEMBER? WHAT ABOUT THAT MISDEED? I am certain TUCSON would love to know who it is that lives in their area that advocates the MURDER of mixed race children.

          Time to own up to that one “FLO”
