Spundge is a platform that’s built to take a journalist from information discovery and tracking all the way to publishing, regardless of whatever internal systems they have to contend with...

 

The software is free, but an optional $9 monthly fee adds premium features, including the ability to share notebooks with collaborators, who can also add to the notebook and see changes in real time..."

YouTube makes it easier for playlist creators to tell a story with new intro and outro feature | Social By Design | Scoop.it

Excerpts from article:

"YouTube decided to help out the community a bit by releasing a new intro and outro feature that lets you insert professional clips in between your videos easily.

 

YouTube Engineer Eric Lundberg said:

"You can choose from a variety of styles for text introductions and even add royalty-free music tracks. Interstitials will appear as unlisted videos in your account, and are eligible for monetization if they are at least 15 seconds long."

 

These particular features allow video creators to tell a full story in a series of videos. Even if you’re not making your own videos, creating a playlist is a way of providing a valuable service to the community."

We tweet, we tag photos, we link, we review books, we comment on blogs, we remix media, and we upload video to create much of the content that makes up the web. And large corporations profit on our online activity by tracking our interests, affiliations, and habits—and then collecting and selling the data. What is the nature of this interactive ‘labor’ and the new forms of digital sociality that it brings into being?"...

Curate, Filter And Publish Your Streams Of Information With State

Curate, Filter And Publish Your Streams Of Information With State | Social By Design | Scoop.it

Excerpted from review article on ReadWriteWeb:

"As streams of information become more popular on the Web, we need better ways to consume and manage them. Apps that allow you to aggregate content from different sources - Twitter, Facebook, blogs, news websites and more - may become very popular: State is trying it.

 

State is currently in private beta. At first glance, it looks part FriendFeed, part TweetDeck, part iGoogle, and part something wholly new.

 

Co-founder Joshua Lewis said:

"what the future of the web looks like when you replace static content with streams of data.

...State is "a general purpose tool to manipulate, filter and publish streams of data."

 

How State Works:

You can add streams of content from up to four services (so far): Twitter, App.net, Instagram and Dropbox. This is the part that reminds me of a start page, like early Netvibes or iGoogle, because you end up with panels of content across the web page. You can also connect to Instapaper, enabling you to save content for later reading.

 

Then, like TweetDeck, you're able to view various aspects of the stream. For Twitter, you can select to view content by home timeline, mentions, user, place, tag, search and list. The same principle applies to content from App.net and Instagram.

 

While State only connects to five services so far, you can imagine it eventually hooking into many more.

 

One feature I really like in State is the ability to "follow" a page of streams that someone else has created.

Each page - or "workspace" to use the service's parlance - is made up of many different streams of content.

There is limited ability to filter - for example, you can select to view only images from a stream. But I imagine more filtering options will be added over time.

 

By default your pages are private, but you can choose to share or make them public..."

Robin Good's comment, August 29, 2012 2:57 AM
Pino your title is pretty unambiguous to me: "Curate, Filter And Publish Your Streams Of Information With State". I read "curate" as the first word.
You can check yourself.
:-)
Giuseppe Mauriello's comment, August 29, 2012 3:04 AM
Hello Robin,
Co-founder Joshua Lewis said:
....State is "a general purpose tool to manipulate, filter and publish streams of data."
Manipulate is not similar to curate?
Robin Good's comment, August 29, 2012 3:52 AM
Pino: Manipulation has nothing to do with curation.

I think that we should not mislead readers or sell a tool for what it is not. Credibility is everything in this realm.

Re Joshua Lewis: if he wanted to say "curate" he would have. But he didn't. The choice to put "Curate" as the opening word in the title above was yours, not his.

If it was my post, I'd revise the title as I wouldn't want to lose any of the trust I have earned from those who read me. To be credible for me is much more important than being first, or popular.

My two cents. :-)

(Best of all would be for you to test it and to write for us what it does and whether you consider that curation or not). :-)

My two cents.

New Social Content Discovery Platform: Ping.it

New Social Content Discovery Platform: Ping.it | Social By Design | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: I received an invitation some hours ago to join into closed beta test of Ping.it (formerly StormDriver).

It is a social content discovery platform that allows people to ping where they are in the Web right now, locate others in real time, and join them on any page.

 

From About Page:

"Ping.it offers a new way to discover interesting content in a social setting. Instead of leaving updates on social networks, just like notes on a fridge, simply share the experience of discovering content in real time, together. Don’t wait for people to tell you what they’re doing. Instead, take a look at Ping.it and join them on the spot!

 

With Ping.it you can see what pages others are visiting right now. You can also get pinged about the good stuff they find or ping your own discoveries.

 

Ping.it is all about the real-time aspect of the Web. Being aware of where your friends are online is one thing. Another is that you can instantly know what’s hot. In Ping.it you can see how many other users are interacting with a page, and if things get interesting you can get notified and join in the fun!

 

Every ping can be send to a specific topic – and all the people who follow it. This way you will immediately know if a new interesting page was pinged to any topic you follow. You can create your own topics, invite contributors, and together create useful scrapbooks of content. All topics have their own unique URL’s, so that you can share your best collaborations with the outside world.

 

We use cloud-enhanced browsing in order to let you enjoy your favorite content from within Ping.it. Instead of searching for stuff outside and then reporting on your findings through social networks..."

10 Key Reasons That Make Content Curation Important for Education And Learning

10 Key Reasons That Make Content Curation Important for Education And Learning | Social By Design | Scoop.it

Excerpted from long but very interesting article by Master Curator Robin Good:

 

"Content curation will play a major role both in the way we teach and in the way we educate ourselves on any topic. 

This article, builds up over my recent presentation on Content Curation for Education that I delivered at Emerge2012 virtual conference.

In that presentation I claimed that the adoption of "curation approaches" will directly affect the way competences are taught and the value that can be generated for "others" through a personal learning path.

 

In this article I outline ten key factors, already at work, which, among others, will very likely pave the way for a much greater and rapid adoption of curation practices in the educational / academic world.

 

These factors are:

 

1) An Overwhelming Abundance of Information Which Begs To Be Organized:

New digital literacy skills are of such great importance. They provide the mental tools for individuals to be able to evaluate, assess, filter and organize information in more effective ways than they have done until today.

 

2) A Growing Number of "Open" and Freely Accessible Teaching/Learning Content Hubs:

Learners will soon need some guidance in selecting the most appropriate course, instructor, approach and institution to achieve their goals most effectively.

 

3) From a Static, Unchanging World of Information To a Constantly Changing One:

a) Some of us dedicate their efforts to find, identify, monitor and update which are the most relevant "information sources", hubs or curators in every possible area of interest.

b) We equip our youth and ourselves with appropriate mental tools to be able to carry out such tasks.

 

4) Real-World Information Is Not Held Inside Silos Like Academic Institutions Pretend:

Curation fits in as a more appropriate approach to learning and to prepare for real-world work challenges, by allowing learners to construct meaning by having to research and to understand and to create new relationships between different information-elements.

 

5) Fast-Food Information Consumption In Rapid Decline - Curation Is the New Search:

Google has lost its "mojo". Search results have become increasingly unsatisfactory as they are often polluted by irrelevant, commercially-driven results or by large brands which Google likes to favor over small, independent and - hard to verify - information sources.

Researchers, educators and guides prefer to refer to trusted "curators" of specific information areas rather than to rely on Google-style secret and commercially-driven algorithms.

 

6) The Job Market is Rapidly Changing:

Outside of traditional "professionals" as doctors and engineers, companies recruiting new people are looking more for "skills and experience" than for degrees and certificates.

Today, the job marketplace requires people who can "think". People who can come up with creative solutions to unexpected problems...

Content curation offers a practical and immediately usable approach to help new learners train themselves in developing such very skills.

 

7) Alternative Certification Systems Are Emerging: Open Badges:

Here a few simple ideas.

Move from teaching and certifying to:

a) curating talent - breed new talent by providing motivated learners with the ideal conditions to study, research and develop new ideas.

 

b) curating educational resources for a specific area of interest / language / region / by creating and maintaining highly qualified "learning paths", and providing assistance, specialized training and resources, to those in specific need of it.

 

c) curating human guides, training future curators - by cultivating and supporting the development of skilled information-guides and coaches that possess the skills of a curator and those of a great story-teller.

 

8) Teachers and Professors Can Now Curate Their Own Textbooks:

Academic and independent teaching curators will design new textbook and teaching curriculums / learning paths. They will do so by selecting and pulling together the best and most relevant material in a variety of formats and configurations to satisfy the needs of many different "audiences".

These individuals will create also great collections of exercises, case studies, real-world examples, people's profiles and toolkits to further facilitate the exploration and learning of such topics.

 

9) Educational Marketplace Open to Thousands of Competitors:

There are now tens of learning marketplaces and platforms that allow anyone to offer and sell courses online. From WiziQ to Udemy the number of alternative services making it possible for anyone to deliver a "professional" course is rapidly increasing.

Today, anyone can become both a "resource", a supplier of content as well as a curator / editor / publisher of new curated content resources such as book collections, expert guides, curated and annotated lists of resources, examples, or templates galleries.

 

10) Growing Demand for Trusted Guidance Over Learning Content and Curricula:

Traditional academic institutions may indeed become trusted curators and guides to the greater universe of information out there, while specializing their efforts for a set of specific areas, needs and communities of interests.

With such abundance and variety (in quality) of educational materials, learners will soon express a growing demand for trusted guides to help them in selecting quality learning guides, sources, hubs and more than anything, curated learning paths and toolkits to explore and learn deeper about a specific topic.

This is where the opportunity for both sides lies."

 

 

Each factor is analyzed with more information, examples and external links. Read full, long and interesting article here:
