Valerie Hill's insight:

Teaching information literacy in global digital participatory culture is my passion.  Through new curation tools, I can access other's thoughts on this concept (twitter, scoopit, etc).  The luxury of meeting face to face would allow us to argue over elements like authority, accuracy, and the rise of the prosumer.  But that luxury is left in the past and I move on toward the hit and miss of learning as a whirling dervish, glancing up whenever something appeals to my interest.

Millions of historic images posted to Flickr | BBC News

Millions of historic images posted to Flickr | BBC News | Future of Libraries: Beyond Gutenberg | Scoop.it
An American academic is creating a searchable database of 12 million historic copyright-free images.Kalev Leetaru has already uploaded 2.6 million pictures to Flickr, which are searchable thanks to tags that have been automatically added.The photos and drawings are sourced from more than 600 million library book pages scanned in by the Internet Archive organisation.The images have been difficult to access until now.Mr Leetaru said digitisation projects had so far focused on words and ignored pictures."For all these years all the libraries have been digitising their books, but they have been putting them up as PDFs or text searchable works," he told the BBC."They have been focusing on the books as a collection of words. This inverts that."Stretching half a millennia, it's amazing to see the total range of images and how the portrayals of things have changed over time.Click headline to read more--

Looks promising and pretty for curation.

Nine0Media's curator insight, February 25, 9:31 PM

Very cool! #WebConsultants #WebDesign

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, August 15, 2:25 PM
About ScissorsflyIn the spirit of freedom and creativity, we designed Scissorsfly. For the first time ever, you will be equipped with something that frees your imagination to creatively collect and organize everything you love on the web, and share them with friends.

Scissorsfly originates from an open hackathon hosted at LinkedIn, when Sillicon Valley tech talents from places like Google, Twitter, LinkedIn, or CMU, MIT, Stanford, Berkerly came to play. We won the championship with the idea called ClipIt, which becomes the magic scissors at your hand today. 

Web 1.0 gave you static webpages. Web 2.0 gives you interactions and collaborations with the web and the world. Scissorsfly will give you not only that, but also the initiative to tailor the web at will. It will be an experience beyond the long lasting web 2.0...

Finally, you can run wild with these scissors.
Their MissionCollecting and organizing information is really important to us. However, it could be painful from time to time. We built Scissorsfly for you to enjoy the process.
TeamWe are an early stage startup based in Mountain View (CA) and Chicago (IL). Our team is small and close-knit, with both strong engineering (e.g. Google, Yahoo!, Linkedin, eBay) and research (e.g. security, data mining, machine learning) backgrounds. For anything interesting, drop us a line at support@scissorsfly.com.
