Stephen Dale's curator insight, April 27, 2015 8:34 AM

A news curation tool. A possible alternative to Scoop.it. Easier to use, but not as feature rich (e.g. lacks some of Scoop.it social sharing and publishing options)

 

Reading time: 5 mins

Joyce Valenza's curator insight, April 27, 2015 8:39 AM

A new curation tool, similar to Scoop.it, without the discover features.  Simple and promising for creating on-the-fly boards and organizing topical content. via @robingood

Recordit.co is a new app for the Mac that allows you to easily record any screen action and to share it instantly with anyone.


Recordit is a super-simplified screencasting tool, that takes away any possible complexity or technical issues from recording screen actions.


This tool is ideal to share or report a bug you encounter in a certain app or to show where to click and what to choose to someone unfamiliar with a certain online service.


Free to use.


Download it now: http://recordit.co/ 


N.B.: It requires Mac OSX 10.9





Jarrod Johnson's curator insight, February 26, 2014 10:42 PM

A really quick tool for the Mac, but can do the same with Quicktime. Not sure if my firewall is preventing this from running. Recorded 5 seconds of footage from 1/4 of my screen on my MacBook Pro and has been cycling for about 5 minutes. Personally I pay the money and use ScreenFlow, which also allows webcam and microphone input together with screen casting and computer sound. Once finished recording the Screenflow editor pops up to allow you to adjust any of the shot.

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.

Robin Good's curator insight, January 21, 2014 11:04 AM



Overview is a new free tool designed for investigative journalists and researchers interested in finding relevant information within large collections of text documents, from reports to social media tweets.


Overview greatly simplifies the task of analyzing, indexing and visualising large document collections in ways that can allow a journalist to identify relevant patterns and threads across thousands of different documents.


Overview is an open-source document mining system which allows you to upload thousands of documents either in PDF format, via the DocumentCloud or through a CSV spreadsheet file. These documents can be rapidly indexed, sorted and analyzed in order to present an organized visual overview of their contents. 


"Whether you are a journalist starting with thousands of pages of government documents, a reasearcher facing a huge archive, or a social media analyst starting with 100,000 posts, Overview will organize your documents into topics and sub-topics, and then visualize them -- so you can find exactly what you're looking for, instantly count the number of documents in each topic, or tag entire topics for further work."


Free to use. Open-source.

Curate All Your Open Browser Tabs with the Collectably Chrome Extension


Via Robin Good

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.
