I hadn't planned to write any more about Scoop.it for a while because I feel I've said enough for now, but I was involved in some interesting discussions yesterday that are worth recording.

Man versus machine: in which I curate

Man versus machine: in which I curate | AJCann | Scoop.it
The medium is the message and curation is the new aggregation.
I've been using paper.li for a while now, but I think that experiment may have run it's course. The machine curation is patchy, sometimes throwing up serendipitous finds but mostly making noise which pushes people away. Lack of RSS feeds, not enough social features, paper.li was a good attempt but too flawed. Contrast paper.li (and Tweeted Times) with the new kid on the block, Scoop.it (h/t Terese Bird).

In a new world of informational abundance, content curation is a new kind of authorship

In a new world of informational abundance, content curation is a new kind of authorship | AJCann | Scoop.it
Like any appropriated buzzword, the term “curation” has become nearly vacant of meaning. But, until we come up with a better one, it remains the semantic placeholder that best captures the central paradigm of Twitter as a conduit of discovery and direction for what is meaningful, interesting and relevant in the world.

The Tweeted Times - personal newspaper generated from your Twitter account

Commits many of the same sins as paper.li - inferior to Scoop.it.
