Robin Good's insight:

 

 Docubase is a project of the MIT Open Documentary Lab that aims to create a collaborative, participatory community around a growing collection of innovative documentaries curated by experts and outsiders alike.

 

Documentaries can be searched and sorted easily in a number of ways (most recent, most viewed, alphabetical order / or as a list rather than a mosaic). The interface is slick, colorful and simple to use.

 

More than 140 documentaries are already available and a selected group of curators has put together a number of publicly available playlists designed aroound key themes connecting these clips. 

 

Playlists: http://docubase.upian.com/playlist/ 

 

The curators: http://docubase.upian.com/curator/ 

 

A fantastic resource for documentary lovers and a great example of how in an open and participatory project, curation can play a fundamental role.

 

Free to use.

What do I like about Scoop.it? First of all, it’s easy to set up a topic and start collecting articles. You simply enter search keywords and Scoop.it searches Twitter, YouTube, Digg, Google Blogs and Google News feeds for matches. You can add any RSS feed, search a Twitter user, list or search stream.
