Sorry, I forgot:  Getting stressed news reporters to apply metadata to their stories is kinda like getting kids to tidy their rooms. That's why, in Dina, you'll very soon get the option to actually make them. If metadata is not applied - no story for you! ๐Ÿ‘‡


The black sheep: Metadata quickly gets out of hand if not being shepherded properly, depending on the herd. So, we are applying an easy-to-admin schema where the metadata input can be restricted to drop-downs and checkboxes only. Or you can allow for a mix of sticks and carrots. Again, depending on the herd. The point is that Dina gives you options. You're free to establish the workflow best suited for your newsroom. ๐Ÿ‘‡


W(AI)T FOR IT: As anyone with a news background, we here at Dina are skeptical about AI being used in the newsroom for fact-finding. Because AI ain't smart enough (yet) to distinguish facts from fiction. But what AI is really good at is re-writing without changing the gospel. So here's how an article in Dina goes from long-form to published X in 59 seconds. ๐Ÿ‘‡


AI for (almost) everything: X's (or tweets as we used to call them) are just one example; in Dina, you can configure your own AI prompts. Here's how AI spits out a TV news intro - and how easy it is to establish your own prompt shortcuts. ๐Ÿ‘‡



It's so easy: The playful title of this newsletter is to point out how easy and user-friendly Dina is. So let's finish it with one greatest hit for the joy of new viewers. We've already created and published a tweet. Now let's make a linear instance with intro, graphics, and video-package. From online article to good to go in the rundown in 85 seconds.๐Ÿ‘‡
