New Blogging Tool Called Scoop.it Lots of Fun — Zen Copy by Karen Daniels New “Blogging” Tool – Scoop.it There’s a new tool in town called Scoop.it.

You “curate” the posts – keeping or deleting as desired.
What's going on in the Sigalon Valley An interesting film about the descendants of the greatest warrior in the history of humanity, Genghis Khan, and how they live in today's modern world. Eight hundred years ago the man called Temujin, better known as Genghis Khan, the king of the universe, managed to create the largest empire ever known in the history of humanity. It all began in the year 1190 when Genghis Khan managed to put together different nomadic tribes of Mongolia in a single powerful army of 200,000 men.

Scoop.it: topic-centric and a new collaborative dimension to curation 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 curators. The market offers multiple platforms: Flipboard, Paper.li, Yoono Socialzine, Keepstream, Qrait, Pearltrees, Bagtheweb, Curated.by, Storify or Zite, to name a few.
