Robin Good: If you are looking for ways to let your scoop.it content to reach more people and to get discovered by those who are not yet aware of you, the new Pinterest integration in Scoop.it should certainly be a welcome addition.
With this new addition, not only you can share your curated stories inside your Scoop.it newsradar with your Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Tumblr and Wordpress friends, but you can also "pin" selected ones to create alternative "collections" on Pinterest.
One potentially good approach is the one of leveraging Pinterest to do what Scoop.it is not (yet) so good at. For example, after you have been curating a newsradar for a while, you can easily create "greatest hits" collections out of the best ones, or sub-thematic digests on specific topics, and Pinterest is a perfect tool to do that.
In essence you can "re-curate" your own curated news, in alternative ways which take advantage of Pinterest strength in building "visual collections" rather than news channels.
N.B.: To access the new "Pin it" button on Scoop.it, click the sharing button below any scoop and you will find it there next to the G+ one.

An excelent post by Stephen Downes about so called "E-Learning generations":
From "placing learning content online", passing through "the network itself", "computer games to online learning", "LMS", "e-learning 2.0" and ending in the "sixth generation, a generation characterized by commercialized web 2.0 services, a consolidation of the CMS/LMS market, the development of enterprise conferencing and simulation technology, cloud networking and - at last - open content and open operating systems."
In the second part of the article, Downes writes about his experience with MOOC's.
Finally he ends with some great conclusions:
"...the first three generations of e-learning (and the web generally) represent a focus on documents, while the second three represent a focus on data. Sometimes people speak of the second set as a focus on the Semantic Web, and they would not be wrong. Data does not stand alone, the way documents do; the representation of any object is connected to the representation of any number of other objects, through shared features or properties, or by being related by some action or third party agency.
Indeed, if the first three generations are contents, networks and objects respectively, the second three generations are those very same things thought of as data: the CMS is content thought of as data, web 2.0 is the network thought of as data, and the MOOC is the environment thought of as data. So what comes after data is pretty important, but I would say, it is also to a certain degree knowable, because it will have something to do with content, the network, and the environment.
Here's what I think it will be - indeed, here's what I've always thought it would be. The next three generations of web and learning technology will be based on the idea of flow.
Flow is what happens when your content and your data becomes unmanageable. Flow is what happens when all you can do is watch it as it goes by - it is too massive to store, it is too detailed to comprehend. Flow is when we cease to think of things like contents and communications and even people and environments as things and start thinking of them as (for lack of a better word) media - like the water in a river, like the electricity in our pipes, like the air in the sky."
So many information that I need a lot of days to read it and to came to some conclusions.

Identity, persona, essence and promise, are the new kings and queens of the branding kingdom, thanks to technology and the deeper connections it opens up between brands and consumers.
Markets, consumer behavior and how businesses connect with customers are all directly impacted by technology.
The increasingly important role of technology, combined with global economic unrest, means a company’s brand is more important today than it has ever been. Consumers, in search of certainty, rely heavily on a brand’s symbolism and significance.
Brands that fail to instill this level of confidence in consumers run the risk of falling to digital Darwinism.
The brands that survive this era of economic disruption, will be the ones that are best able to evolve because they recognize the need and opportunity to do so, before their competitors .
Everything begins with embracing a culture of innovation and adaptation — a culture that recognizes the impact of disruptive technology and how consumer preference and affinity is evolving.
While the nature of the firm has long been established as the dominant form of organizing for value creation, emergent forms of organizing such as the private-collective community model have recently gained attention from researchers and...
