This is just the article I've been looking for. It reasurring to see that Scoop.it was built on a technical foundation that promotes ethical use of digital information.


I've used Scoop.it from the beginning with the understanding that curation can be "...a win-win-win deal for readers, curators and – perhaps more importantly – publishers."


The ability to filter and select information and then share it efficiently with Scoop.it technology is truly, "...a beautiful symbiosis between curators, readers and publishers."
