I've used Diigo for years. Changes in the Diigo interface just aren't working for me so I'm ready to try some alternatives.  


This tool was recommended to me by one of my graduate students. I'm going to give it a go.  If any of you have tried this, let me know?

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, August 1, 2015 4:19 PM

This is just the article I've been looking for. It reasurring to see that Scoop.it was built on a technical foundation that promotes ethical use of digital information.


I've used Scoop.it from the beginning with the understanding that curation can be "...a win-win-win deal for readers, curators and – perhaps more importantly – publishers."


The ability to filter and select information and then share it efficiently with Scoop.it technology is truly, "...a beautiful symbiosis between curators, readers and publishers."
