RIP Google Reader.  Not that I have used you lately.  Feedly promises to take your readers and help them assimilate the web.  I will use Twitter and Scoopit in the meantime:)

Bill French has just released and made available for purchase a Google Docs based mini-app he has developed, which allows anyone to curate online content without needing to have a website or blog.


The app whic is called Qyurate, allows to capture and edit / curate content found on the web, to archive and store it by sending to a dedicated email, and to publish it via RSS.


More specifically:


Instead of emailing your annotated content items to a blogging platform such as Tumblr, email them to qyurate@gmail.com.


A running process at qyurate@gmail.com email address will see your posts, parse them into your available content for your feeds, and organize them by tags.


Tagging your posts is achieved by adding a name-value pair in parenthesis at the end of the email subject line.

Example:

The Art of QR Codes (qyurate:entconnect)


In the above example, this curated post will be categorized under “entconnect”. It is also possible to tag a post for use in multiple categories.


This makes it simple to dispatch curated items to more than one destination via separate RSS feeds.



Price: you name a price starting from $10

P.S.: Unfortunately the description and info about this new tool is quite concise and the "demo" provided on the landing page is accessible only by those who have previously bought an eBook by Bill French ($8).

* What I have done to get access without buying, is to provide a fictitious PIN when asked, and it seems you can go through it without problems.
