Robin Good: Excellent guide to digital curation resources by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.. It includes alphabetically organized lists of digital-curation related resources from academic programs to file formats, guidelines, organizations, blogs, and a very rich list of digital curation software tools.

Understanding Online Content Curation

Understanding Online Content Curation | e-learning y moodle | Scoop.it
Understand what online content curation is and how curated content fits into your overall marketing campaign, the Do’s and Don’ts of content curation.


Like fashion, Internet Marketing as SEO promotional techniques are often recycled and “re-launched” as something new and exciting.
In the fast moving world of Internet Marketing , where media, platforms and “Hot Sites” change and evolve at a rapid pace it is important for you to understand how online content curation fits into your overall marketing campaign.


Chances are you are already curating content online in some form without even being aware of it. So what is a curator and what is content curation? A curator is anyone who actively manages a collection. The curator seeks the best examples of relevant things to add to the collection and gets rid of anything that doesn’t fit.

Create, Edit, Self-Publish and Sell Your eBook as You Write It: Leanpub - Publish Early, Publish Often

Robin Good: Leanpub is a free web service that allows you to create, edit and publish your own book in PDF, .epub (iPad) and .mobi (Kindle) formats, and to sell it online at your own set price.


With Leanpub you get 90% of the selling price, minus a fixed .50cents per copy sold which goes to Leanpub. Check this table for more details: http://i.imgur.com/ziqV5.jpg


Leanpub it's simple to use, but, in my opinion, it's not for everyone, as its setup is not as simple and straightforward (yet) as that of other web apps. But if you are a bit familiar with Dropbox, if you can easily edit text files, and don't mind tagging your book text with a few asterisks here and there, then you should be more than fine with this tool.


Basically Leanpub hooks up to your Dropbox account where it drops a set of simple text files that control the contents, sequence, formatting and images for your book.


So to work with Leanpub, you actually open a text file in your Dropbox account, and start editing it. The Leanpub account is used only to initially create the files needed in Dropbox, to generate previews and to provide you with the means to provide marketing info for your book landing page (auto-created by Leanpub).


It is possible to start a book by importing content from your blog RSS feed or from a Word document saved in HTML format.


One other cool feature of Leanpub is its ability to allow you, as an author, to publish and start selling your book at any time, giving you the option to actually get paid from the moment you publish your first edition.


People can sign-up to your book updates via the landing page, and Leanpub collects for you their emails so that you can keep in touch with them, and alert them everytime you have a new edition out.


The final cherry on the pie at Leanpub is the "bundling" feature which allows authors to bundle together either multiple books of their own, or their books together with other authors'(and their approval) ones and to offer them at a special discounted price.


This option by itself allows book authors both to use a very powerful marketing approach juxtaposing their titles to other relevant ones, as well as to cultivate their own competence in a specific area to curate relevant book sets for their audience.
