Robin Good: Kullect is a mobile publishing tool that allows you to capture, organize and share "collections" about things that interest and inspire you.
Kullect is also an interest-based social network which allows you to discover and connect with people who have your same interests or in partcular with those who are nearby.
From Xconomy: "Open up any of today’s top mobile media-sharing networks on your smartphone—like Instagram or Picplz for photos, Klip for videos, or Path for group sharing—and what you see is a random stream of disconnected items, stretching infinitely from today into last week, last month, and last year.
Each individual item in a stream may represent somebody’s special moment or act of curation, but there are no mechanisms within these platforms for ordering things or imposing a theme.
No pattern emerges. It’s just one damn thing after another.
Which is a little too much like real life, if you ask me. What’s missing is a sense of context.
I’d get a lot more out these apps if I understood why people share the things they do, or how they fit into a larger story.
That’s the whole point of Kullect.
As the name suggests, the app is all about building collections [which are like] extended, multimedia blog posts.
You can have as many collections as you want, and a collection can have any theme you want—I’ve seen Kullect users posting pictures from trips they’re taking, lists of their favorite bars or clubs, and varieties of roses in their gardens.
But whatever the theme, a collection amounts to a kind of story about what you’re doing or what you’re passionate about."

Robin Good: As the gathering and discovery of news and stories leverages increasingly the adoption of technology tools that scan, search, find and monitor specific topics or geolocations in real-time, it seems only natural that a new breed of real-time photo/image search engines are beginning to appear.
From the article intro: "Thanks to services like Twitter and Instagram, and the global 'smartphone saturation' phenomenon, live reporting from big events has never been easier.
No longer do we have to rely on professionals delivering content and images from these events, we have our extended social networks doing this for us.
And, because so many of these updates get fired into the 'public' timeline, virtually any update from anywhere can be found and shared in a matter of seconds.
With the London Olympics on our doorstep, expect to see 'real-time photo curation' explode into popularity and we've got some tools to help you be at the forefront of this revolution."
Robin Good: Co-meeting is a real-time text-based group discussion tool.
The key features of Co-meeting are:
1) Live-Typing Chat Your text entry will be shown on screen character by character to the participants, so a text-based communication just like an actual verbal conversation is possible.
2) Multi-Threaded Discussion Not only can multiple discussions be held concurrently, it is also possible for participants who join in midway and absentees to have the same level of discussion as participants.
3) Notes of real-time share By simultaneously debating and sharing the minutes of the proceedings and preliminary information, additional work for information sharing is dramatically reduced.
From Lifehacker: "Remember Google Wave?
...Co-Meeting is a new web service that brings a lot of them back, including real-time, as-you're-typing conversations, document storage, in-line to-dos, notes, and meeting minutes, and more.
Co-Meeting borrows a lot of tricks from Google Wave, most notably the ability to have up to 30 people in one workspace at the same time, all typing and interacting with one another, updating documents, starting and answering comments and posts and threads, and in general just working together.
As everyone talks, one click turns any posted comment into a to-do item or a progress update to an existing to-do.
...The service even keeps track of where you left a conversation so you can get up to speed quickly when you return."
