This man thinks big data and privacy can co-exist, and here's his plan | Communication design | Scoop.it
Dr Alexander Dix is Berlin’s privacy chief. With Germany being pretty hardcore about data protection law, you might think he’s Silicon Valley’s worst enemy — but he has compromise in mind.

Curate All Your Open Browser Tabs with the Collectably Chrome Extension

Robin Good's curator insight, August 23, 2013 1:51 PM



Collectably is a content curation web app which allows you to bookmark any web site and to organize it into visual collections. A unique Chrome extension makes Collectably particularly useful as it pioneers the ability to save all of your open tabs into a visual collection that you can immediately prune, organize visually and sub-divide into specific groups. 


This feature by itself is worth gold for any serious researcher or content curator as it allows to easily move from seeing just trees into seeing the whole forest and into organizing into logical groups for further work. Priceless.


If you frequently search and explore new information and tools online, I highly recommend it. It's that good.


Free to use.


Try it out now: http://collectably.com/ 


Chrome extension and Bookmarklet: http://collectably.com/#/tools 


N.B.: You have by default a similar functionality available inside Firefox. It is called Group Tabs and you can activate it by goign to the View menu -> Toolbars -> Customize and by dragging the mosaic looking Tab Group icon into your browser top bar. 


Try it. It's excellent. The only difference with Collectably is that Group Tabs are private to you and not shareable on the web. 




Lila Hanft's curator insight, August 24, 2013 7:19 PM

If you use Chrome, you can collect several open tabs at once with this extension -- great way to save your place if you have to quite while in the middle of researching something, but also a good way to package disparate sources of information together.

De veranderingen in online gedrag en technologie gaan snel. Deze infographic geeft daar wat actueel inzicht in. Opmerkelijk is dat het laatste half jaar een stijging wordt gezien van 80% in het openen van e-mail op mobiel en tablet.

John Presutti's curator insight, September 1, 2013 5:45 AM

Very interesting set of stats!

40 Maps That Will Help You Make Sense of the World

40 Maps That Will Help You Make Sense of the World | Communication design | Scoop.it

If you’re a visual learner, then you know maps, charts and infographics can really help bring data and information to life. Maps can make a point resonate with readers and this collection aims to do just that.

A few of these maps are important to know, some interpret and display data in a beautiful or creative way, and a few may even make you chuckle or shake your head.

If you enjoy this collection of maps, the Sifter highly recommends the r/MapPorn sub reddit. You should also check outChartsBin.com. There were also fantastic posts on Business Insider and Bored Panda earlier this year that are worth checking out. Enjoy!

This matters to be a lot. Typos happen, but they should be rare when you are promoting your brand, product, or yourself.

Dani Hunter's curator insight, September 9, 2013 5:09 PM

An article like this could inspire a couple different grammar exercises in the classroom. The statistics (and the 'brid' picture) show the importance of proofreading and editing. Students could look for more pictures or come up with scenarios where they make up examples of grammatical errors in the media.
