When is the social curation bubble going to burst?

The biggest noise might be coming from Pinterest, which is growing like a weed — but whether it’s the new-look Delicious, Switzerland’s Paperli, shopping curation site Svpply, image service Mlkshk or another site, the fact is that almost everybody seems to want to help you save and sort and share the things you find on the web right now. With this swirl of activity, then, it’s no surprise to hear that Parisian service Pearltrees — slogan “collect, organize, discover” — has just raised another $6 million of funding, led by local conglomerate Groupe Accueil. The company, which has been running in public since 2009, welcomed the injection of funds as a way to help expand and scale up its system for bookmarking and organizing, which is based around a clustered visual interface.

And it needs that scale. Right now Pearltrees is small and has moderate momentum, building up 350,000 users in the past three years. Pearltrees new team and touch features pave way for best-of-breed curation service. Pearltrees. Curation: The Next Big Thing? Blog Archive » The Web’s third frontier. Everyone realizes that the web is entering a new phase in its development.

Blog Archive » The Web’s third frontier

One indication of this transition is the proliferation of attempts to explain the changes that are occurring. Functional explanations emphasize the real time web, collaborative systems and location-based services. Technical explanations argue that the interconnectivity of data is the most significant current development. They consider the web’s new frontiers to be closely related to the semantic web or the “web of things”. Although these explanations are both pertinent and intriguing, none of them offers an analytical matrix for assessing the developments that are now underway.

In contrast, other explanations are far too broad to serve any useful purpose. How can the web’s development be understood? The web represents a compendium of technical resources, functionalities and usage practices, and it cannot be reduced to just one of these dimensions.

Pearltrees launches Android app, makes leap into file management

Pearltrees announced that its app is finally launching to Android phones, and the platform is adding some Android-like functionality. From the get-go Pearltrees will support 2,500 Android devices and 98.3 percent of Android operating systems, which is commendable considering the varying assortment of screen sizes and should-be-retired Android OS’ that are still in use out there. “Tiny” screen sizes for obvious reasons – considering the need to navigate through trees of information – won’t benefit from the update. With branches extending to and from trees and pearls hanging from or connecting each branch, we’ve highlighted its novelty before. Pearltrees looks something like a next generation user interface for managing those pesky and unorganized digital files of our operating systems.

A second intriguing feature is the algorithmic smarts that Pearltrees’ engineers have baked into the platform. Pearltrees Adds Dropbox-like Features -SVW.

Pearltrees Adds Dropbox-like Features -SVW

Up till now it has been primarily used to create visual collections of web pages and any other online content. However, with the new feature your files will be visible to others unless you pay for a special private account so be careful what you upload to your Pearltree. The free version of a file sharing service like Dropbox keeps your files private unless you specifically authorize public access. Frocaboy : @benjbubu TreeRank qui détecte ...
