Abstract

See full text

Methods and apparatus are disclosed for efficiently scheduling incoming information objects so that timely objects from a variety of content classes are scheduled for broadcast. The incoming information objects are preferably received from one or more information sources, and are tagged with attributes that associate each object with one or more classes of information (e.g., sports, news, etc.), and provide a gauge of the timeliness or 'age' of the object. The tags can be used to select and broadcast objects from a variety of classes, and to identify the most timely objects at any give time.
