Curate Embeddable Thematic Photo Galleries from Social Hashtags with Picsho

Curate Embeddable Thematic Photo Galleries from Social Hashtags with Picsho | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it

Robin Good's curator insight, June 30, 9:50 AM



Picsho is a free web app which allows you to create embeddable photo galleries from your favorite hashtag pics gathered from Instagram, Flickr, Twitter, Tumblr and other social networks.


Picso which I have reviewed before in 2012, has completely revamped its interface and released a new much simpler and more intuitive new version. 

To use it, you simply enter a hashtag or keyword, you select up to five visual sources (Flickr, Instagram, etc.) and then you wait for your gallery to load up. Once displayed you can manually curate which pictures to keep and which ones to exclude.

Once done, you assign a name and you can save and publish the gallery. If you are logged in, you can also re-edit and update your gallery anytime.


The only limitation, is that you cannot re-arrange or reposition images in a gallery.


For the rest, Picsho is one of the best and easiest tools I have found to rapidly curate a social images based collection and to be able to publish it on any site.


Free to use.  


Try it out now: http://picsho.com/

Barbara Vermaas's curator insight, June 30, 11:53 PM

Volgens Robin Good een erg handige een eenvoudige tool om afbeeldingen te verzamelen van Flickr, Instagram, Tumblr en andere sociale netwerken. Ik wil me niet zomaar overal voor registreren om een applicatie uit te proberen, dus ik moet afgaan op het oordeel van een ander. Maar wat hij erover schrijft klinkt wel erg bruikbaar.

Je verzamelt op basis van een hashtag of trefwoord een complete gallery waar je naderhand nog afbeeldingen uit kunt verwijderen. De volgorde kun je niet aanpassen.

Gratis tool.

How Much Data Is Generated On Twitter, Instagram, Vine, Tinder & WhatsApp Every Minute? | AllTwitter | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it

Here’s the thing: the internet never sleeps.

 

Which means data never sleeps, and the internet sure likes to use up a lot of it. How much? In any given minute, 277,000 tweets are published on Twitter, 216,000 photos are sent to Instagram and 8,333 videos are shared on Vine.

 

And we’re just getting started. Over that same 60 second period, 347,222 photos are sent on WhatsApp, 416,667 swipes are made on Tinder and 3,472 images are pinned on Pinterest.

 

And if you think that’s impressive, Google receives 4 millions search queries, Facebook users share 2.46 million pieces of content and 204 million email messages are sent each and every minute of the day.

 

This visual from DOMO looks at how much data is generated every minute across the net....

Search Engines Will Increasingly Be Gateways To Curators & Collections Rather Than To Individual Tracks

Search Engines Will Increasingly Be Gateways To Curators & Collections Rather Than To Individual Tracks | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it

Via Robin Good

Robin Good's curator insight, July 17, 1:16 AM



Justin Fowler, co-founder of AudioPress, offers valuable insight into what the future of search and curation may be, by providing a relevant and sound pattern to look at: music.


He writes on TheNextWeb:

"Context is key for music, and that is where services like Songza and Beats Music are picking up tips from FM radio. These services are essentially using algorithms to help people discover new playlists, instead of discovering new songs. This allows for a marriage of both technology and human curation."


Accordingly, as time goes by, I expect to see search engines increasingly highlight and direct searchers to quality curators, hubs and on-topic collections and specialized resources, rather than to individual, one-topic-only pages.


Search engines will increasingly be gateways to curators and content collections rather than to individual tracks and pages.


This will be particularly true especially when you will query a topic, a theme or interest, or better yet, a musical genre.

In all of these situations, where you want to dive, discover and learn more about a topic, it is much better to be offered a selection of playlists, compilations, collections or hubs covering that theme rather than a specific song, product or artist.

That is, search and discoverability of content will rely more and more on intermediaries that will take on the load to make sense and organize in the best possible way, a specific realm of information (it can be a music genre, or the analysis of a biological topic) rather than  - as it happens today - provide a linear list of individual web pages that is supposed to cover that topic.


If the music industry, is, like other times before, an early indicator of how things will work out in the future, it makes a lot of sense to expect that the future of content discovery and search will be increasingly in the hands of curators, greatly helped and supported by sophisticated, but hackable and adjustable algorithms.


What do you think?

Cannabis Inc.

Cannabis Inc. | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it

ABC Australia presents a short documentary concerning the advancements of legalized marijuana in America with a focus on corporate interests in the burgeoning mainstream pot industry.

We are first introduced to Michael Blue and Brendan Kennedy, founders of Privateer Holdings, the first private equity firm dedicated to cannabis.

Giving the appearance of traditional young business men with suits and Ivy league degrees, Blue and Kennedy present themselves as working in the interest of patient rights and civil liberties, with Kennedy expressing his doubt that he could ever work for tobacco or alcohol.

Blue explains that the industry is growing and will only continue to expand as attitudes towards marijuana become more accepting with 85% of Americans supporting legalized marijuana, at least for medical purposes. "You can't get eight in ten Americans to agree on anything," Kennedy explains. "But you can get them to agree on this."

Marijuana activist John Davis provides a history of our societal attitude towards cannabis, and how it was once a valued crop before prohibition derailed its mainstream potential. Acknowledging that marijuana continues to be a mainstream substance despite its ongoing status as an illegal one, Davis indicates the potential for extreme profit in not only the sale of cannabis, but the paraphernalia involved as well.

On the other side of the issue is Representative Patrick Kennedy (of the Kennedys) who is adamantly fighting against the legalization of marijuana. Citing his own experience as a former addict - albeit to cocaine, opiates and alcohol - Kennedy recounts the humiliation and shame involved in his actions while under the influence of drugs. In light of his past personal troubles his pet crusade is now against "Big Marijuana" and what he perceives to be the greed and profiteering behind it.

Giving perspectives from both the pro- and anti-cannabis sides of the aisle, this film gives viewers a fair amount of information to consider – are modern strains of cannabis stronger than they were in the past and does that make them more desirable or more dangerous? If marijuana is regulated will it become safer or will corporate interests corrupt the quality by introducing contaminants as happened with tobacco? Either way the film suggests the answers will surely reveal themselves in real life soon enough.

Few Majors Taking Up Tesla’s Open-Source Patent Offer

Few Majors Taking Up Tesla’s Open-Source Patent Offer | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it

Remember when earlier this month, Tesla CEO Elon Musk released all of the patents related to his company’s offerings in the hope that all of the major players would eagerly buy into his vision thing of widespread EV production?

It hasn’t turned out as well as Musk had hoped.

Autoblog Green reports only Mahindra is interested in the patents and their potential application in future products; the company once had the e2o EV in its lineup, and is working on an EV version of its Verito Sedan. Meanwhile, General Motors is more interested in how Tesla does its business than how to put together a Model Volt S, Honda is satisfied with its own EV technology, and most of the other players aren’t saying much.

The lack of excitement may be attributed to the fact that, according to The Motley Fool:

Tesla is not revealing its trade secrets. There often is only so much information that you can get from a patent. Only Tesla knows how to put it all together in a cost-effective manner. Besides, by the time the competition digests the patents, some of them may have become outdated, and Tesla likely will have advanced to the next generation of its technology.



It hasn't turned out as well as Musk had hoped.
