He first learned piano, but found it somewhat boring, while his father's guitar playing looked great.[4] Sungha was taught the basics of guitar by his father.

Pearltrees Aims For Curation Domination If you’re tired of talking about the cloud, social media and mobile apps, you might want to work the word “curation” into the conversation. As in, “Curation could become a hot sector in 2011.” At least that’s what Pearltrees is hoping. The Paris, France-based company provides social curation tools, which is a sort of advanced way of aggregating or bookmarking websites—into what the company calls pearls—and organizing them in a way that allows others to see your pearl collection. How To Copy & Paste Between iPhone & Desktop Without Installing Any Apps There’s something about technology I find truly fascinating. The more sophisticated everything becomes, the more trivial problems are created. Back when I was using my trusty Nokia 6070, I had no desire or need to copy and paste things from my desktop to my phone. My phone and my desktop were two different entities, and I didn’t even dream of being able to copy and paste something from my desktop, and have it appear instantly on my phone.

The new rules of news You may have noticed – you could hardly miss it – the blizzard of anniversary stories last month about the fall of Lehman Brothers, an event that helped spark last year's financial meltdown. The coverage reminded me that journalists failed to do their jobs before last year's crisis emerged, and have continued to fail since then. It also reminds me of a few pet peeves about the way traditional journalists operate. So here's a list of 22 things, not in any particular order, that I'd insist upon if I ran a news organization. Social Curation Service Pearltrees Revamps Web and Mobile Apps Pearltrees, the service that allows you to arrange Web content, photos and more (‘pearls’) into mindmap-style ‘trees’, has updated its Web and mobile apps today in order to bring a more seamless user experience and new features to the platform. The company said the Web platform has been fully redesigned and rebuilt in HTML5, making it more easily accessible on a range of different devices, as well as introducing new features also now found in its iOS and Android apps. It seems it’s becoming a bit of a habit for Pearltrees to significantly revamp its website at about this time each year, and this time around it’s gone all-out to make collections, and collecting, “simpler, more accessible and more shareable,” CEO and co-founder Patrice Lamothe said. As well as rebuilding it using HTML 5, there are now new features like ‘extended drag-and-drop’ which allow you to quickly add ‘pearls’ from your hard drive, the Web or a document. ➤ Pearltrees | Google Play | App Store

Recent Changes Map The Background Last week, Wikipedia launched a typography refresh. This is a big deal for a variety of reasons, especially given that Wikipedia may well be the most content-focused mainstream website out right now. No ads, no “likes”, reblogs, or comments; Wikipedia is a lovably no-nonsense site that serves its purpose well. The Change The change was subtle, but noticeable, like a good typography change should be. The curator attributes and skills What skills do I need to have if I want to be an effective real-time news curator? Can I just pick the best headlines and links on my topic of interest or do I need to do know / do more? What makes a great news curator stand out from those who do automatic aggregation or from bloggers who create simple news stories lists? Photo credit: thesuperph

hey mojuju. This article does not answer most user's questions about Pearltrees 2 indeed and is likely irrelevant to your own concern. It is one of our core values to engage and discuss with members openly and in a fairly decentralized way, so answers should always be read in the specific context of a discussion. I think the team mention this article when members ask what's Pearltrees direction and whether pt2 fits in our overall project. As you rightly noted, it shows our mission has not changed. It also doesn't give any indication about what is the best interface or visualisation for Pearltrees, though, because, however important it is for us, we believe interfaces are a mean to an end and not a goal per se. There were several versions of pt1 before the one you know and they all had significant differences. If we live long enough, there will be pt3, pt4, pt5,... and each time we will adapt the visualization and interface to the nature our community. So are we making progress with pt2 and in which dimension? I would definitely answer yes and on 3 key dimensions: universality, sharing and exploration. To put it simply, when you shared a pearltree about your favorite movies with pt1, people saw a tree of pearls, and only eventually, they saw what you put inside the pearls. With pt2 they will immediatly see... your favorite movies. This less visible, more universal visualization - but in my opinion far less banal that one may think at first - enable us in turn to improve sharing, exploration, and eventually organization itself. But as I said before, this is a whole different topic... by Patrice May 31

The PearlTrees company team keeps referring to this article (and google translate seems to do a fair translation of the ideas if not the eloquence of the blog entry) as PearlTrees' guiding vision. Perhaps my critical thinking skills need honing (I say this purely in self-effacement), yet no matter how I look at it, PT 1 was just as democratic as PT2 and, more to the point, PT 1 allows "everyone to organize all documents" as each sees fit and PT2 allows only a subject line organization with none of the neural-like connections readily available in PT1. I fail to see (a) how this situation is an improvement, (b) how PT2 is a step forward on the touted path (because it seems like many steps backward to me), nor (c) how referring to a visionary blog article addresses the users' (including my own) questions. "How Now Brown Cow" makes just about as much sense to me. by mojojuju May 30
