Clip, Collect and Organize Anything That Interests You: Clipix

Clip, Collect and Organize Anything That Interests You: Clipix | Searching & sharing | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Clipix is a Pinterest-like clipping and collection app which allows you to capture images and content from any web page and to organize it in custom visual boards.

One key feature that differentiates Clipix from Pinterest (though it is likely that Pinterest will add this feature soon as well) is the ability to organize together multiple sets into a "multiboard".

 

Other key features include a "Price Drop Alert" which emails you when the price of one of the commercial products you have clipped drops and 

"...For example you might have a multiboard that you call “Recipe Ideas” and inside you’d have 3 clipboards: Baking Recipes, Soup Recipes, and Health Recipes.

 

The easiest way to create a multiboard is by dragging one clipboard from the icon in the lower right-hand corner into another clipboard."

Sounds cool, if only Pinterest didn't exist already (or zillions of other similar websites for that matter). thanks for curating and sharing though.

Thank you Lelapin. The world is beautiful because it is varied. Pinterest will soon lose its "mojo" to many of these more specialized clones, which will provide more immediate value to those specifically interested in that specific area or application. I may be wrong but this is what I expect to happen.

Here's a new take on Pinterest, but it looks like personal use only.

Top 10 Sites for Curating the Web

Top 10 Sites for Curating the Web | Searching & sharing | Scoop.it

"With the amount of information that is available on the internet, it's important for teachers to filter through websites to find relevant information in a timely manner. As a blogger, I believe we "curate" the web automatically to help keep things organized and to convey information in as detailed and easy a way as possible.

 

Now, with the addition of dedicated websites, people can curate the web and save information on their own while sharing this vital information with others."

Create A Multimedia Timeline To Curate Stories That Have Strong Chronological Narrative: Timeline

Create A Multimedia Timeline To Curate Stories That Have Strong Chronological Narrative: Timeline | Searching & sharing | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Timeline is a Javascript open-source solution that allows anyone to create a visual timeline that integrates text, tweets, images, maps, audio recordings and video clips on an infinite scrollable bar. 

 

A project funded by the Knight News Innovation Lab, Timeline works great with stories that have a strong chronological narrative. It does not work well for stories that need to jump around in the timeline.

 

Mashable Sonia Paul writes about it: "Timeline is similar to Storify in that it allows users to aggregate media on the web, it differs in its operation.

 

With Storify, users can drag and drop content into a post.

 

With Timeline, users can either embed the code onto their website using JSON, or — if they don’t want to mess with any coding — they can fill in a ready-made Timeline template on Google Docs.

 

The project is currently hosted on GitHub, and users can find specific directions on how to both embed the code and use the Google Doc template there, too.

 

Future plans for the project include support of more media type, as well as iPhone compatibility, B.C. time support and better seconds and milliseconds support." 

 

Here is the GDoc ready-made template: https://docs.google.com/previewtemplate?id=0AppSVxABhnltdEhzQjQ4MlpOaldjTmZLclQxQWFTOUE&mode=public&ndplr=1&pli=1#

Curate Your Own Video Board: Chill Is The New Pinterest for Video

Robin Good: Chill, the video sharing and discovery site, has just introduced a new feature that allows anyone to clip and share, on a Pinterest-like thematic board, all of the video clips he finds on the web.

 

The new Chill bookmarklet works very much like the Pinterest one. When you click it, a page shows you all of the video clips found in that page and offers you to clip and "post" the one you want, with your comments. 

 

It's as easy as that.

 

The generated "curated" Chill video boards are easy to scan and browse, though, in my view, a great boon would be the ability to check a few of those videos and to click a play button that plays them full screen back to back. This way I have the best of curated content, my own selection, and the final lay-back and watch gratification option. 

 

Very promising.
