Via Scoop.it – internetbillboards
Earlier this week, I wrote a post called “Content Curation Is Listening and Engaging” about the art and science of curating information. It is process o f organizing, filtering and “making sense of” information on the web and sharing the very best pieces of content that you’ve cherry picked with your network.
In the post I referenced a video interview with Robert Scoble by Howard Rheingold that Mari Smith highlighted in a google + post. I’ve been reflecting on Scoble’s observation that curation is about knowing your sources, seeing patterns, and being organized.
I’ve been experimenting with Scoop.It, a bookmarking and curation tool. It allows you enter your sources – specific blogs or keyword searches and easily add them to nicely formated stream. Scoop.It also lets you easily share the gems you find selectively to other social networks. There is also a social aspect – you can “follow” other Scoop.It curators.
