Why mind mapping software will go mainstream in 2009 - Mind Mapp A number of recent developments have convinced me that 2009 is the year in which mind mapping software will break into the mainstream as a widely accepted business productivity tool. It has reached an “inflection point” where we will see more rapid growth than ever before. Here are the factors that I believe will drive this rapid growth: The barriers to adoption are falling: Tools have recently emerged that enable workers who do not have licensed copies of a major mind mapping software package to collaborate with those who do. I’m speaking here specifically about Mindjet’s recent announcement of the Mindjet Connect collaborative workspace and the MindManager Web client. McDonalds, obesity and curation of the social web McDonalds – is it a great restaurant chain serving tasty food, or the purveyor of a socially destructive obesity pandemic? Well that really depends on your point of view. However what we do know is that human opinions are reflective of the current moods of society. We see that all the time in areas such as fashion and retail. The success of the Apple iPhone took on a life of its own with people believing the iPhone was the must have device, despite the HTC getting near universal better reviews and ratings.

9 content curation tools that better organise the web Content curation is a huge deal on the web today. As content on the web grows exponentially, our ability to make sense of it is inversely proportional. In other words, we are fast sinking under the sheer amount of content pouring onto the web every day. The social web hasn’t made life any easier on content production either – in fact its lowered the barrier to entry. According to Facebook, 30 billion pieces of content (web links, news blogs etc) are shared each month on the social network, with no sign of slowing. Right now it seems that content curation, and curation platforms are going to be an area of growth on the web.

And if you have questions, you can talk to someone who can answer them.
Computer-assisted curation : let's figure out the best system to help scale up curation operations! It seems that lately the two concepts of knowledge management and content curation are definitely getting closer and closer as providers of private social networks for companies try to find the holy grail of social collaboration. At the same time, there is a great wave of discussion and innovation coming from the world of journalism where the community is trying to solve the issue of the scalability of the current human-based curation model. A great tweet posted last week by David Clinch illustrates this duality between two approaches : either completety human-based curation and knowledge management, or either algorithmic recommendations. His tweet was stating the obvious, we need a system that leverages both! As a lot of commentators willingly admit, human curation, even when assisted by several tools that help in discovering information, really takes a lot of time and most likely does not scale.

Content Curation Tools: 21 Criteria To Select And Evaluate Your Ideal One Nonetheless we are just at the beginning of a new era, in which content curation will be as important as search, there is already an apparent abundance of content curation tools of all kinds.

On the other hand it is not realistic for someone to go out and test each and every one of the available solutions. For these reasons, it is quite difficult and time consuming to select and identify the most appropriate content curation tool for a specific need and as a consequence most rely on the tools they have tried and that satisfy their basic needs but remain quite ignorant about what options they are leaving on the table only because they have not yet tried them. 1) Import and Export functions
