In the guest post published by Jeff Bullas' blog, Intervistato.com's Maria Petrescu interviews Scoop.it's co-founder Marc Rougier after giving her own insights on why curation is a much needed trend.
"Online content curation is a hot trend as business owners and professionals realize that content is vital to add value to their customers and prospects. The trend was already evident in 2011 but 2012 saw an outright explosion of the phenomenon. Also important is delivering and sharing that content on your social media networks." she writes.
She comes back with Marc on the background behind Scoop.it: "The founders were literally in love with social media, but had no time to produce content. They had already been working on another platform, where they published content organized in topics. People loved it, but after a while they felt the growing need of getting content that was more specific, based on their single interests."

Earlier we discussed the drawbacks of the bludgeon-like initial attempts at ocean fertilization, that have created crude plankton blooms by dumping iron powder into currents. We also saw that care must be taken to make sure that (as when arid land is irrigated) the new zones of fecundity must be "well-drained" like the Grand Banks and Chile, and unlike the Mediterranean, the Black Sea and the Gulf of Mexico, where "fecundity" can translate into a poisoned morass of algae and jellyfish. My conclusion: if you want to emulate the main life-process that removes CO2 from the air, do it by lifting submerged nutrients to higher, sun-lit realms, exactly as Nature does it. Several methods have been proposed and I showed a couple of them way back in in EARTH (1989).
It ain’t easy to turn a book into a bestseller. Harder still is for a first-time author to reach the heights of the charts. But is bookselling success a nebulous, magical achievement “ultimately in the hands of the book gods”? That’s the way Morgan Entrekin, the president and publisher of Grove Atlantic, described it in the recent New York Times article “Long Odds For Authors Newly Published” by James B. Stewart. The first part of the quote in that article quotes Entrekin stating, “A publisher can only do so much.”
How life began is one of the most compelling questions humanity has ever asked. Atoms and molecules, driven by nothing more than unthinking chemical processes, somehow became the complex reproductive organisms that we see roaming the Earth today -- somehow, they became us.
Those tiny baby steps at the start of life, when some unknown molecule somehow became self-replicating, for example, hold the key to understanding how life began and how likely it is to have sprouted throughout the Universe.
Martin Hanczyc, from the University of Southern Denmark, has dedicated his professional life to this area of study. His popular TED Talk from 2011 is a great discussion of the blurred line between life and non-life.
Now, using a new computational approach to mapping how simple molecules like hydrogen cyanide become more complex, he's hoping to find those first chemicals that bridged the divide and became living.

Being an Internet marketer for many years I’ve seen the landscape change many times but one thing has stayed the same “Content is King”, when it comes to driving traffic to a website.
As a business owner we all want to get new customers to our websites. Many have tried blogging to drive traffic to their website and due to a shortage of hours in a day they end up dropping the blog or hiring ghost writers to develop content for the site. We now have a new player on the net and it comes in the form of Content Curation. No it will not completely eliminate business owners creating content for their website but adds a whole new area of content development for a website.
Over the past two years I’ve tested different content curation sites and tools and have found Scoop.it to be the leader in both innovation and traffic building potential.
