Today Content Curation Tool Scoop.it Launched Its iPhone App | Scoop.it Blog | News, topics and more | Scoop.it

Excerpt from article:

 

"Today, we’re very pleased to be the first curation platform to become Mobile, launching Scoop.it on the iPhone.

 

Developing it, our focus has been to respect the core values of the Scoop.it platform: simplicity, visual appeal, efficiency. As you use it, you’ll be able to leverage the suggestions you’ve configured for your topic as well as other users’.

 

The publishing window is essentially the same as the web site’s and offer the same multi-sharing opportunities.

 

Even the bookmarklet can be installed on your iPhone and used in the same way as on your computer. But the best thing might be this: no one will be able to tell the posts published using the iPhone App from the ones published using your PC. Both will enjoy the same nice magazine layout, when seen by one of your readers. Mobile Internet started to be successful when it became usable without compromising on quality: our goal has been the same, applying that to curation and publishing...."

America Needs Clean Energy Support

America Needs Clean Energy Support | News, topics and more | Scoop.it

In today's competitive global economy, technological innovation is essential to long-term U.S. economic security, and the energy sector should be a particular priority. Failure to extend key U.S. clean energy initiatives would be contrary to U.S. interests.

 

Expansion in the clean energy industry will fuel economic progress and strengthen our national security. American scientific leadership has spurred innovative new energy generation and storage technologies -- from solar and wind power to fuel cells and electric vehicles. These sources can be domestically produced and deployed over time. And these are the energy options that the world's fastest-growing economies are using to support development without harming the environment.

 

Research by The Pew Charitable Trusts shows that the clean energy sector is growing rapidly -- by more than 600 percent in the past seven years. According to Bloomberg New Energy Finance, investments in this sector eclipsed those for conventional energy last year for the first time. Additional Pew research shows that investment in the sector could total some $2.3 trillion this decade.

Storytelling And Curated Content: Cowbird Seeks To Become The Ultimate Public Library Of Human Experience

Last week, Internet innovator and artist Jonathan Harris launched Cowbird, a space on the web for housing deeper and more personal storytelling. It’s a project that aspires to no less than building a comprehensive public library of human experience.

 

Cowbird takes the deliberate, cow-like pacing of traditional storytelling media such as the novel, and gooses it with the quick-hit, bird-like qualities of Facebook and Twitter. Users within a small community of storytellers handpicked by Harris post images and accompanying text, and continue doing so until a larger narrative begins to reveal itself.

 

The stories on the site are richly interconnected, complete with maps, timelines, dedications, and many other components. The basic structure of Cowbird consists of three levels: stories, diaries, and sagas. The basic story is a photo with text (although these can also include audio and other features). As more stories are added, they begin to comprise a person’s diary. Users can also flag some stories and diaries as being part of a larger saga--events like the above-mentioned Arab Spring--making them appear in two places....
