Great scoop by Robin showing how Behance depends on curation. Also shows the importance of "do more with less" curation tools such as Scoop.it. One of the most popular pieces I've written was

A Content Curation Primer by Beth Kanter

A Content Curation Primer by Beth Kanter | Digital Content Curation | Scoop.it

Beth Kanter celebrates my birthday by publishing this informative and well curated article for new content curators.

Beth summarizes key principles, her own suggested approach and some of the tools she recommends to use.

 

An enjoyable and informative read. Recommended.

P.S.: The link "explosion of tools" should realy link somewhere else in my humble opinion. Here is an updated map of all the content curation and newsmastering tools out there: http://www.mindmeister.com/55395228 ;

Thank you Beth for publishing this very interesting post indeed.
Buon compleanno Robin, master curator :)
Beth Kanter's comment, October 5, 2011 5:07 PM
Thanks Robin for scooping this post. It took me a long time to really synthesize what I learned from the accumulated links. I'm working on this because I have to teaching an introductory workshop on content curation - and how it is useful for professional learning in ADDITION to an organization's content strategy. The big barrier is the sense of "being content fried" - a new word for information overload.

Thank you for the rescoop. I need to learn more about beth Kanter. It looks like I found a great place to do that. :)
Good luck to you!

Behance has done it again, they've created new websites that combine curated works from Behance members in categories as seen by the links listed: Web Design Served, Industrial Design Served, Branding Served, Illustration Served, App Design Served. Curated Work from Leading Creatives on Behance! Very Nice! Take time to take a look.

Beth Kanter Interviews Robin Good - Insights & Tips On Curation For Non- Profits [Video]

Beth Kanter interviewed Robin Good a few days ago, for the entire interview with Beth and Robin please click here: [http://bit.ly/y3bmPo]

 

Robin, I really enjoyed listening to you, I know this is aimed at non-profits but your insights, tips and suggestions are something we can all use. 

 

Here are a few things that caught my attention:

 

**BEFORE you get on the web, decide how much time you're going to spend on there, otherwise it could become addictive, and this can happen if you're not careful (hmmm how many of you can relate to this?) 

 

**Know who your audience is, pick a very specific topic,

 

**be as narrow as you can, find great pieces, pull out what you think would be relevant for them (being too broad doesn't help filter out the noise for these people, it adds to it)

 

I'm going to let you get right to the interview and let Robin tell you more:-)

 

Selected by Jan Gordon covering "Content Curation, Social Busiess and Beyond"

5 Free Tools for Creating Infographics

5 Free Tools for Creating Infographics | Digital Content Curation | Scoop.it

Generally, people don’t have the time or energy to sit and plow through pages or screens of text; they want to be able to ingest information as quickly and easily as possible. With the recent rise of infographics (information graphics), what used to require an avalanche of stats or analyses to dissect, can now be interpreted and relayed into an easy-to-read, fun, and visually appealing schematic – and an excellent content marketing concept. Infographics, when designed well, can be applied to different online sites and social networks.

Summarized at the article are 5 free tools (with links) that allow you to start creating simple infographics or explore the potential of data visualization...

1. Visual.ly

2. Easel.ly

3. infogr.am

4. Wordle
