Public Domain refers to material that is ‘publicly available’ and not covered by intellectual property or copyrights. In today’s media, where visual art is abundant, there is a high demand for images, for example for webdesign projects.
"Note-taking is a small yet important part of anyone’s digital routine. That’s why apps like Evernote prove extremely useful for anyone who needs to jot down pieces of information at any given time. It lets you quickly jot down text notes or take shots of important documents from any device you’re using, or directly from your web browser."
To talk content curation, we really need to think through the duties of a museum curator for a second. A curator scours the art world, selects the finest works, gathers them together around a unified theme, provides a frame to understand the artists’ messages and then hosts a conversation around the collection. That’s not unlike the 21st century teacher who must comb through an overabundance of information to discover the significant and relevant, bundle those ideas into course modules, contextualize them for the class and then create an environment for students to explore those ideas and enter into a conversation about them.
For those of you who haven't heard of the new(ish) startup Citelighter, take note: it's a pretty awesome tool. I've been playing around with it and chatted with founders of the company last week and am thoroughly impressed.

"Did you know you can now integrate two of the best apps to help you find and share content daily?" writes Liz Wilson on Business2Community.com.
I love the way she describes her Scoop.it community: "It’s a place where you find the leading experts. You will learn from them, benefit from their high-level curation, and connect with them. Some of them will become friends. After a bit more than a year, I have an incredible knowledge network of friendly, helpful people in my Scoop.it community."
And also how the Scoop.it App enhances her HootSuite experience: "Until the Scoop.it app came along I hadn’t found a satisfactory way to quickly uncover great content from inside HootSuite. I wanted a quick and easy way to do more of my work from inside Hoot Suite – and this is it."
"We’ve got some great new apps in this week’s must-have roundup, including Path, which finally makes its debut on the iPad; a nifty utility for monitoring the data consumed by your iPhone apps; plus a great new cooking magazine that every foodie should have installed on their iPad."

Over the past few years I must have heard the phrase ‘everyone is a publisher nowadays’ a thousand times or more. It’s largely accurate, due to the rise of social media, but I think we are mainly ‘curators’, as opposed to ‘publishers’.
This is a good reminder to use Twitter search more effectively. Don't forget Twitters advanced operators.
