New “Blogging” Tool – Scoop.it There’s a new tool in town called Scoop.it . In essence you pick your topic/title (if available) and then you put in search terms which the system uses – which means as it scans social media streams so the results will only be as good as the terms you put in. You “curate” the posts – keeping or deleting as desired. You can add your own posts, put in specific sites or places you want Scoop.it to search (such as your blog) and you’re off to the races.
At The Next Web conference in Amsterdam I caught up with Guillaume Decugis, CEO of Scoop.it , a news curation startup coming out of France, but which is rapidly gaining traction and is poised to put down roots in the US. We’ve previously covered Scoop.it on TechCrunch France <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" id="ooyalaPlayer_4kx49_gn1v8a3d" width="640" height="360" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/swflash.cab"><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><param name="movie" value="http://player.ooyala.com/player.swf?embedCode=NzbjVmMjrD-uqMKdP89bfgjk_W4-bT8d&version=2" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" /><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="flashvars" value="embedType=noscriptObjectTag&embedCode=NzbjVmMjrD-uqMKdP89bfgjk_W4-bT8d" /><embed src="http://player.ooyala.com/player.swf?
Curation has been a hot topic for at least a year, and I agree with Tom Foremski , that it’s not just a trend, or as he puts it in a recent post , “a flash in the pan.” We all need to make sense of the mass of information that comes to us, and present it in a format that is easy to consume and communicate. So, we all tend to create our own “magazine” adopting a variety of criteria – and as any curator, we make decisions on what we want to collect, highlight, and share. In the end, digital curators are not fundamentally different from traditional curator s. The market offers multiple platforms: Flipboard , Paper.li , Yoono Socialzine, Keepstream , Qrait , Pearltrees , Bagtheweb , Curated.by , Storify or Zite , to name a few.
Scoop.it : Curation Made Easy Scoop.it is a French startup, co-founded by the world-traveled and eminently interesting Marc “Fuseki” Rougier. [ Fuseki , Marc's twitter handle, stands for the open board of the Japanese board game GO]. Scoop.it, Marc Rougier’s latest initiative, is a curation site with some zip that is still in its Beta test phase.
Finding educational resources on the web can be a time-consuming job. Once you find the resource, it must be categorized in some way . Bookmarking is one solution but lately there has been a surge of curation tools.

Scoop.it Wants to Make Curation Frictionless One of the most over-hyped concepts of the last year is “curation.” Most curation services, with the exception of sites like Tumblr, aren’t really ready for the mainstream.
