Quora est un réseau social basé sur un principe simple: posez une question, vous obtiendrez une réponse. Ou plutôt, des réponses. Quora est surtout depuis quelques jours, la coqueluche des blogueurs “influents” et des médias techniques francophones. Pour Techcrunch , Quora pourrait connaitre un succès équivalent à Twitter.
Curation, the concept of filtering and organizing online content to separate signal from the increasing noise in social media, is currently one of the most discussed buzz words in the web industry. The number of curation tools, however, is still (relatively) low: Storify , which launched during TechCrunch Disrupt, and Curated.by are probably the most prominent examples at this point. Enter Chirpstory , a new and Twitter-focused curation tool, which lets you gather and share collections of tweets around a specific topic. Popular news items, events, or trends may see thousands of related tweets, retweets and spam posts in a matter of hours: Chirpstory offers a way to curate and “summarize” related tweets in the form of a continuous or thematic narrative. Each story (you can also call this a list or summary) is hosted on an easy-to-read, dedicated page hosted on Chirpstory.com or can be embedded on external sites.

Last night was interesting. I was sitting down to do some last-minute research for a post I was working on (this one) when news began to break that North Korea had just attacked South Korea. As usual, news was flowing through Twitter faster than any one source, but I needed a way to filter the noise.
There seems to have been a rash of startups based on Twitter in London. Some of the best known are Tweetdeck and Tweetmeme, but others have appeared like Curated.by (which just moved out to the Valley). But one which has been bubbling under and, like curated.by is focused on curated realtime streams, nsyght.com.
Storify is a tool that allows users to ‘create stories using social media’. Storify caught our attention because it taps into two macro-level trends, or notions that we’ve been discussing for some time – curation and storytelling. The tool has applicability for journalists, bloggers, professionals, brands and even casual, personal online storytelling (i.e., “storifying” personal travels). One feature we found particularly noteworthy about Storify – vs. other curation tools like Posterous or Tumblr – is the ability to create a story utilizing specific lines of text from a larger story (that most relevant to the story you’re trying to tell). The bookmarklet allows you to select lines of Text or individual Tweets from a broader page, news article or website, and to add commentary that will result in your personalized story referencing key and potentially varied sources.
