After trying out Pearltrees today, I have to say I’m incredibly impressed. It was featured on CNN.com as a possible next big thing on the web and since its beta launched on Wednesday, there has been massive scrutiny in the online world over its social-network-meets-categorized-mind-map-bookmarking style.

Many people search the web, read content every day and share that content. While advances in search technology has made finding information easier and easier, saving and organizing information in a way that captures a story or conversation can still be very challenging.
A French Web site, called Pearltrees , is developing a Web service that is trying to bring a social networking element to bookmarking - but with the connections based on content instead of people.
Pearltrees Once Again Evolves The Way We Bookmark Our Favorite Sites | Small Business Conversations by Network SolutionsA few months ago, I wrote here about a new startup coming from France that would change the way that we view social bookmarking. In fact, it would probably change the paradigm to which we have been accustomed to – clicking a link on our browser and going to Digg , Del.icio.us or StumbleUpon and dropping in the link to share with our friends and others on the Internet. That startup was called Pearltrees and last week at the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco , they announced what they consider to be a major new feature that would help make it easier for people to share their bookmarks on a whole new level. As a refresher, Pearltrees is a content curation website designed to share your bookmarks with the entire community.
A new web paradigm: Pearltrees
Pearltrees is a fledgling social bookmarking service, which tries to break away from the tagging paradigm. Instead, each bookmark is a "pearl", and the pearls are linked into trees.
[France] Paris-based Pearltrees has been catching interest around the web the last few days not least because a gaggle influential Silicon Valley bloggers have descended on Paris for Le Web , but mainly because of its interesting model for visually mapping how people collect and share information on the Web.
If there is one thing I like about koozies, that is their ability to become a unique and personalized gift. Regardless of where you will be handing them out, a koozie can be ideal memento for any occasion, whether it be for a get-together, corporate party, fundraiser, or a sports celebration.

It's rare to look at a bookmarking tool and feel convinced that it's going to win a design award. Pearltrees is such a product. The French site offers us a new way to explore and contextualize the web. In what looks like a mind map structure, users collect "pearls" (links to articles, videos and web pages) and drag and drop them to form a body of knowledge that folds and expands upon itself. In an interview with Pearltrees CEO Patrice Lamothe, ReadWriteWeb found that company already has a loyal user base including our friends at ReadWriteFrance. Said Lamothe, "We wanted a type of game play that was playful to use and map the web...and the fact that you can group and ungroup content easily means that you can re-catalogue it and keep it current."
