Curators Intro: I am a huge fan of pinning. Enough said. If you want to tell a story with pictures http://pinterest.com/netbillboards   Time magazine called Pinterest — a website where users post collections of images of their favorite food, clothes, places and everything else — one of the five best social media sites of 2011, along with Google-Plus and Klout. The company has raised $27 million in venture capital led by the firm Andreessen Horowitz, which several tech news outlets have reported as valuing Pinterest at $200 million. What is Pinterest? The website is a “virtual pinboard,” which lets users organize images, recipes and other things they find on the Web. When it called Pinterest one of the “50 Best Websites of 2011” in August, Time magazine wrote:

“The basic idea behind Pinterest — which lets you create and share collections of stuff you like in any category you choose — has been tried before by startups that didn’t make much of a mark. This time it might take off.” Some people in Silicon Valley believe Silbermann — who played cello for the Des Moines youth symphony; whose parents, Jane Wang and Neil Silbermann, are opthalmologists with a family practice in Urbandale; and who competed on the debate team at Roosevelt High School— may have founded the next giant social media website.
