Pinterest has been working on partnering with other creative communities to make sharing on the pinboard more inclusive and less of a copyright hazard. On Wednesday, the visual pinboard turned up the volume and set up ...

Catherine Kaputa image via SelfBrand.com Starting a business is usually the result of a personal dream or need. Investors tell me that they invest in people, more than the idea.
**** Not sure I am 100% all the way where this article takes us, but is branding yourself always a good idea? Absolutley yes since brands create a shorthand and "Made To Stick" way to know who you are and what you are all about. Problem is it is hard to THINK about personal branding in real life and real time without coming across as too scripted and calculated.
That doesn't mean you can't take what is out there about you, the stuff you created in an organic way, and build on it. I created "revolution" feeds on Scoop.it at least partially because my brand is marketing rebel. By creating Mobile, Ecommerce and Curation Revolution feeds I stoke that fire.

**** Cool scoop by a trusted source K3hamilton. Marty
**** Andre shared this cool tool with me today at Agile Marketing conference in SF. Double posting it to Curation Revolution and here because looks like a very cool startup. Marty
It’s tempting to compare Clipboard, a new service that’s launching today, to Pinterest. Actually, it’s irresistible: Clipboard, like Pinterest, lets you collect interesting tidbits from all over the web, then share them in “boards” which piece together all the tidbits on one page. And Clipboard, unlike Pinterest, lets you share web content of all sorts: images, videos, text and more, preserving the original layout and formatting.
But Clipboard isn’t just a Pinterest variant. It’s also a way to save parts of the web for later reference without ever sharing them with anyone else — something I’ve been doing lately with Evernote — and therefore a useful research tool as much as an exercise in social networking.

Between Pinterest and Fab and Fancy and Svpply and Wanelo and Lyst and many other similar startups, the social-meets-design-meets-commerce space is nothing if not crowded.
***** This reminds me of how Hollywood gets on similar ideas all at the same time. At the core is the battle between Israel's and text. The first web revolution was about text. It is clear the second is going to be about visuals. Marty

**** I just curated a piece of Robin's into Curation Revolution explaining there are times when a straight scoop or curation without much comment makes sense. This excellent summary of Robin's is a perfect example. The other thing I keep in mind on my straight scoops, curation without much comment, is where am I curating too. If I were moving Robin's notes and this new Display Note tool into my blog or my Technorati startups series I would write more, but it can be safely "Scooped" into my Startups feed inside of Scoop.it because that is where I share cool tools like this one. Sometimes I scoop naked first and then go back and fill notes in after I've had a chance to take a pass through the tool. I do this to rescue the piece so I don't lose it back into the sea of STUFF I review daily.
PS. See my Scoop of Robin's Rewriting News Stories Is Not Content Curation to read Part I of this conversation :).

From Official Site:
"Wanelo is social store curated by the community. Users post, collect and organize products and follow people and stores they like.
From review on TechCrunch:
"The eCommerce world is starting to warm up to the future of online shopping: Social curation. Call it the “Pinterest-effect” — People are embracing the idea that bookmarking and social sharing slowly are replacing search with regards to product discovery.
The startup allows you to follow your Facebook friends in addition to top site users — resulting in a more personalized product feed than that of just celebrity selections. To post an item to Wanelo enter a product URL, tag the item with categories, and add price and other details. Users can browse through Wanelo items by popularity, recency, or by people and stores that they follow.
“Pinterest is a great product and it solves the curation problem for images,” Varshavskaya tells me, ”It contains products as well, but that’s not their focus, so users don’t go to Pinterest to shop. They go there to collect things like recipes. Wanelo has nothing but products and users know that, so they come to Wanelo to shop. Users on Wanelo have much more purchase intent”
