Sometimes you need an archive of a site. Gret for slow bandwidth areas when you just want to show an aspect of a site. Here is how.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, November 3, 2013 6:24 AM

When you Mummify a webpage—a news article, blog post, photo or tweet, for example— we make a permanent copy and back it up in the cloud. We then give you a new URL that looks like this: http://mummify.it/2452862


Mummify is free up to 100 mummies a month. If you need to Mummify more than 100 pages in a given month you can purchase 50 more for $5.

Good questions but I think digital curation has different dynamics and also purposes. What do you think?

Olinda Turner's curator insight, October 21, 2013 2:05 PM

Totally agree with the concept that sometimes less truly is more. One of the hardest skills to develop is to sort out what is truly important.

Curate All Your Open Browser Tabs with the Collectably Chrome Extension


Via Robin Good
Lila Hanft's insight:

If you use Chrome, you can collect several open tabs at once with this extension -- great way to save your place if you have to quite while in the middle of researching something, but also a good way to package disparate sources of information together.

Robin Good's curator insight, August 23, 2013 10:51 AM



Collectably is a content curation web app which allows you to bookmark any web site and to organize it into visual collections. A unique Chrome extension makes Collectably particularly useful as it pioneers the ability to save all of your open tabs into a visual collection that you can immediately prune, organize visually and sub-divide into specific groups. 


This feature by itself is worth gold for any serious researcher or content curator as it allows to easily move from seeing just trees into seeing the whole forest and into organizing into logical groups for further work. Priceless.


If you frequently search and explore new information and tools online, I highly recommend it. It's that good.


Free to use.


Try it out now: http://collectably.com/ 


Chrome extension and Bookmarklet: http://collectably.com/#/tools 


N.B.: You have by default a similar functionality available inside Firefox. It is called Group Tabs and you can activate it by goign to the View menu -> Toolbars -> Customize and by dragging the mosaic looking Tab Group icon into your browser top bar. 


Try it. It's excellent. The only difference with Collectably is that Group Tabs are private to you and not shareable on the web.

StartMe is an excellent free start page builder which allows anyone to create public (or private) start pages containing bookmarks, links and RSS feeds, organized in groups and easily editable.


StartMe creates clutter-free, well designed and highly scannable editable start pages where you can easily add, edit, move around and re-order and group your favorite links and bookmarks in any way you want.


You can create as many start pages as you want and you can choose to start either from a pre-populated links and feeds page that can be edited and customized or completely from scratch.


Groups and individual items (links and RSS feeds) can be easily edited and dragged around easily. It is possible to decide how many news stories appear in a feed list and you can even switch on a "river of news" option that will combine chronologically all the news of a list of feeds.


It is also possible to integrate a search engine for each start page that will search using your search engine of choice.


StartMe supports OPML allowing full export and import functions with any bookmark collection or RSS feeds list.


Extension for Firefox and Google Chrome are available.


My comment: I can't recommend this tool enough. Easy, fast, effective and elegant. It's a breeze to use and it's so damn useful for creating start pages for a thousand different uses: tools lists organized in groups, suggested sites to visit subdivided in sub-topics, collections of people profiles in specific sectors, etc.  


Ad free.


Free to use.

A good example of how you can provide a lot more insight to others by painstakingly curating a specific topic by collecting, organizing and juxtaposing effectively all of the relevant pieces.


Dr.Pete. also known as Peter J. Myers has curated an insightful visual montage that showcases all of Google search engine result page features in one page.


The result is a pretty amazing view, that, at least in my view, would be much more welcome than the existing results. Much more so, if it was me, the user searching, being able to decide which one of these features to turn on or off depending on my needs.


The time has come for me and you to decide how we want to slice, view and rank search results and this wonderful user-generated montage points to how much more could be seen if it was me or you to decide what to display inside your SERPs.



Inspiring. Instructional. Informative. 9/10

Never heard of it - must be worth sharing :)

Robin Good's insight:Introducing content curation to someone who doesn't know anything about it is not always an easy task. There are so many different articles, opinions, definitions and recommendations about content curation that it is quite difficult for someone just getting familiar with the topic, to easily find out where to start and what to trust. To help out anyone needing to support the explanation of content curation to others, here are five comprehensive resource collections I have put together over the course of the last year. 1) Content Curation - Definitions a collection of the best and most useful definitions of what content curation is http://bundlr.com/b/content-curation-definition 2) Content Curation - What is it? Video Intros 30+ short video clips that introduce the need, practice and purpose of content curation http://huzzaz.com/collection/content-curation-what-is-it 3) Content Curation Visualized 110+ infographics, visuals, illustrations and diagrams explaining what content curation is www.pinterest.com/robingood/content-curation-visualized/ 4) Content Curation Tools Directory - Tools Directory 100+ of the best content curation tools organized in a directory for immediate access http://contentcuration.zeef.com/ 5) Content Curation Tools Supermap - Tools Collection 600+ content curation, discovery, filtering and publishing tools organized by categories for doing content curation http://bit.ly/ContentCurationToolsSupermap All free to use and share.

This is definately something that anyone in the coming new century needs to learn how to do effectively.  Do we want regurgitation or depth of learning from knowledge gained?   I value, for example, how Scoop.it allows for the 'web interface' to be looked after, by them ,and the curation and learning happens with us!

Five New Ways To Curate Content In Real-Time

Five New Ways To Curate Content In Real-Time | Curate content in real time. | Scoop.it

Instead of doing  your research at the start of the week and pre-scheduling your content, a new emphasis has been placed on real-time content discovery.

Here are Adam Vincenzini's suggestions  to discover and curate content in real-time...

 1. Bottlenose.com

This combines your Twitter and LinkedIn activity preferences with a continuous scan of trending topics to serve up semi-tailored results in real-time

2. rt.ly (aka realtime from bit.ly)

This serves up content with stats telling you how popular it is as the time of searching

3. Sulia.com

The tag line for this is the 'interest network' with a most attractive user experience

4. Alternion.com

Another service which combines your own social media preferences with some real-time discovery and organisation.
5. Social Buzz (from social-searcher.com)

Social Buzz works by taking your keywords, running a search and then adding the analytics associated with those results to give you the most relevant content options.
Why tools like these give you a competitive advantage

Real-time discovery of quality content is becoming more important as pre-scheduling older content no longer has the same impact


The Chart explains this in more detail:

The best time to find and share content is during the 'real-time content discovery hot spot' which means you're more likely to be viewed by your networks as a news breaker as opposed to a news follower.
