Tomorrow the company will release a new, faster version of its application and announce that it has passed 2 million links curated in 7 months since going live. That means an average of 10,000 links have been bookmarked in Pearltrees every day since launch, and presumably many more now that the site has grown.

Facebook and the Epiphanator: An End to Endings?

Last year I watched a friend struggle through breast cancer treatment in front of hundreds of friends. She broadcast her news with caution, training her crowd in how to react: no drama, please; good vibes; videos with puppies or kittens welcomed. I watched two men grieve for lost children — one man I've only met online, whose daughter choked to death; one an old friend, whose infant son and daughter, and his wife and mother-in-law, died in an auto accident. I watched in real time as these people reconstructed themselves in the wake of events — altering their avatars, committing to new causes, liking and linking, boiling over in anger at dumb comments, eventually posting jokes again, or uploading new photos.

Learning to take the measure of the world with new eyes. How Insight Labs Gets Smart People To Brainstorm Solutions To The World's Problems. Insight Labs' pro bono attempts to solve the world's problems started innocently enough. Two years ago, Jeff Leitner, a Chicago-based digital strategist and former journalist, wanted to gather together a group of smart people to brainstorm the solution to a seemingly insurmountable problem. So, he scheduled a three-hour-long discussion in Detroit and asked friends, colleagues, and family to recommend people who would volunteer their time to talk through a problem. Some major smarty pants from companies such as Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Michigan, Deloitte, Quicken Loans, and Ford agreed to participate.

On a January day in 2009, the executives tackled the question: How best to revive the Detroit economy and create jobs? Leitner has since orchestrated 23 panels for Insight Labs, a pro bono group funded by a Chicago interactive consultancy called Manifest Digital.

Posted by Tom Foremski - November 2, 2010 Curation is becoming an increasingly important term and for good reason: the online world is increasingly messy, muddled and full of blind alleys.

Search used to be the best way to navigate online but today it is only one part of an Internet user's dashboard. Finding things is fine if you know what to look for, but search is increasingly less effective in judging the quality of links, or putting those links into a context.

Two posts brought to my attention the discussion starting to take root about the worlds of content aggregation versus content curation.

A post on the Poynter blog back in early October points to the work of journalists engaging in curation via Twitter as a way of “filtering the signal from the noise.” The phrase used was “curation is the new aggregation.” A more recent post on the Simple-talk.com blog by Roger Hart delves more into the world of content curation in a broader sense, stating that it is a bit of a flavor-of-the-month. I would disagree with that sentiment, having discussed this for years. Why Curation is here to stay. Why Curation. What Makes A Great Curator Great?

Even in the case of power-users utilizing RSS feed readers, aggregators and filters, the amount of junk we have to sift through daily is nothing but impressive, so much so, that those who have enough time and skills to pick the gems from that ocean of tweets, social media posts and blog posts, enjoy a fast increasing reputation and visibility online.
