Elsewhere in the world, stone fruit of all kinds are revered, but only the plum gets that kind of treatment in the UK
Rosalind Dibley's insight:

In the middle of winter, as we are, I see these ingredients and sigh.  Greengage plums and fresh apricots whilst I'm in the midst of brassica season.

What Kind Of Curation Site Should You Use?

What Kind Of Curation Site Should You Use? | Web technologies for research and evaluation | Scoop.it

Deanna Dahlsad designed this simple decision-tree to help differentiate between different Content Curation platforms and which one you should use as a business user.

 

I found this interesting as it's one of the first ones I see that made this obvious and simple differentiation between the different platforms out there. I'm not sure I would describe Scoop.it as article-based (we obviously have large pictures, infographics, videos or SlideShare presentations that are not articles) but I can see where she's coming from and her intention: if the content you curate is not 100% image, "image-based eye-candy" is not enough.

Thank you for scooping my article and decision tree! Most content curation sites do offer images, as I noted; but there are distinct differences between image-based sites like Pinterest & sites like Scoop.It especially in terms of users.
Chris Lott UAF's comment, October 5, 2012 1:31 PM
The decision tree here represents our decisions on what curation technology to use as an educational organization. It's a great starting point for discussion.
Guillaume Decugis's comment, October 9, 2012 9:53 PM
Hi Deanna - Yes, I found it was a great one. By the way, I was thinking of using it in a future presentation. Would you be ok with that? I'd of course include the reference to your site that's on the original picture. Let me know. Thanks!
