There’s Life Left In Delicious Yet For a long time, the web-based social bookmarking service Delicious was a poster child for the Web 2.0 movement. It was open, collaborative and full of the tags and user-generated content that made VCs instinctively open up their checkbooks at the time. It’s been 10 years, since the service opened to the public – then still running on the del.icio.us domain – and while it’s changed owners a few times since, it’s still up and running and its original concept hasn’t changed all that much. But the site did give itself a fresh new design for its 10th birthday, so it’s worth taking another look. Yahoo famously acquired Delicious back in 2005, two years after it was founded, and then let it linger for years. That’s what Yahoo did with way too many of these popular Web 2.0 services (Flickr being the other key example) and by 2010, it looked like Delicious’ days were over. Yahoo, however, didn’t close Delicious. I’m not sure its latest redesign is going to make a big difference, either.
Spicynodes Muzio’s beautiful iOS app makes it easier than ever to curate & share memories What's next in mobile? Find out at MobileBeat, VentureBeat's 7th annual event on the future of mobile, on July 8-9 in San Francisco. Register now and save $400! Tons of apps let you share photos and videos. Heck, just this week, Facebook-owned Instagram added video sharing, and it’s already popular. But what if you want to easily share a set of photos, videos, audio, and text in a single album? Muzio was founded and launched by Reshma Chattaram Chamberlin and Elizabeth Buchanan (both pictured above), two designers who own B&C, a small boutique design firm. So Buchanan and Chamberlin built an app on top of Amazon Web Services that would make it easy to share an experience like that with photos, videos, audio, and text all in a single place. Muzio isn’t trying to be yet another social network — it’s a tool for compiling media and sharing it on social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Google+) and over email. Check out more photos of the Muzio iPhone app below. Photos via Muzio
9 lessons about the web and business from Pearltrees, the or Pearltrees is a French startup that wants to change the way we organise the web. Describing how it works would lead you to believe that it’s another social bookmarking site, which would do them injustice. Most of the social bookmarks are organized either alphabetically or chronologically, which doesn’t do much good when you try to retrieve stuff later. Also, due to how most social bookmarking sites were designed, they’ve become more like a curated list of the hottest headlines out there right now, and about what Mashable calls “velocity” – the question: how fast is this thing spreading? This idea of velocity is not what Pearltrees is about – on the contrary, it’s a tool that helps you keep an eye on context and history in the endless stream of blogs, tweets and Facebook posts. (I can hear you think that you “don’t like to click”, but that would be missing the point. So there’s the genius of Pearltrees: the not getting lost while searching for stuff on the internet. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
Curation in the Age of Abundance “A curator is an information chemist. He or she mix atoms together in a way to build an info-molecule. Then adds value to that molecule.” – Scoble One of some buzzwords from SXSWEDU 2012 is “educators as curators”. With lots of Web2.0 curation tools available, what does it mean to be a curator? In this age of information abundance, curation is to leaverage this abundance effectively, we think there are many purposes of curation, here are some situations: - collecting relevant resources or tools for later use, from infinite abundance (sometimes you can’t find a link anymore after leaving it) - organizing texts and resources for learning, educational courses offering is the typical case, while well-crafted curation led by teachers could be valuable, but without having students becoming part of the curating process, the most important part is missed If human beings need to re-invent the wheels for individual needs, then our history would be totally different.
Pourquoi le Mindmapping est-il si efficace pour étudier Pourquoi dit-on que le Mindmapping peut aider les étudiants ? Est-ce vraiment si efficace ? Et si oui, pourquoi ? A ces questions, on peut répondre sans hésitation : OUI, le Mindmapping est une méthode efficace pour étudier. La vue : le sens dominant d’une majorité de personnes Une étude de Linda Kreger Silverman, Docteur en psychologie de l’Université du Colorado, menée sur 750 élèves, a démontré qu’environ 30% d’entre eux utilisaient fortement le canal visuel-spatial, 25 % d’entre eux utilisaient principalement le canal auditif-séquentiel, et 45% utilisent les deux ensemble. Ce qui veut dire que l’enseignement actuel, basé principalement sur les mots, répond vraiment aux besoins de 25% de la population scolaire! Répartition des canaux sensoriels dominants Une méthode qui sollicite tous nos sens ! Par son utilisation de mots-clés, d’associations et de relations entre les concepts stimule également l’utilisation du canal auditif et de l’intelligence verbale. Vous avez aimé cet article ?
Mind42: Free online mind mapping software Visual Browser About the application Visual Browser is a Java application that can visualize the data in RDF scheme. The main principle of the visualization is that: the triple (resource, resource, resource) is represented by two nodes connected by an edge the triple (resource, resource, literal) is represented by a hint (small window appearing on mouse over the subject node) the triple (resource, resource, literal) can be represented by the length of the edge (between resource and resource) if the literal can be converted to a number Visual Browser uses the Jena framework to obtain the data, since the RDF scheme can be saved in different forms (a single XML file or a relational database). The visualization engine is derived from TouchGraph LLC. The graph is animated to create an impression of fixed points (nodes) and elastic connections (edges). The user interface allows the user to expand and hide nodes, switch the view of edges and display hints. Two-level visualization Examples of visualization Citeseer
GiveALink | Center for Complex Networks and Systems Research UPDATE: As of 2015 the GiveAlink project has been archived and the GiveALink.org website is no longer operational. Link analysis algorithms leverage hyperlinks created by authors as semantic endorsements between pages, while social bookmarks provide a way to leverage annotations by information consumers as a source of information about pages. This project explores a novel approach that is a synergy of the two: soliciting annotations from users about the content of pages, in a way that implicitly forms networks of relationships between and among resources and tags. These socially generated relationships are then aggregated to build bottom-up, global semantic similarity networks. Algorithms are developed to construct, analyze, and mine these networks in support of search and recommendation applications, exploratory navigation interfaces, resource management utilities, tag spam detection, and incentive games to accelerate the achievement of critical mass.

givealink /FAQ What is GiveALink? GiveALink is a social annotation, organization, recommendation, and navigation system for the Web. It is also a research project by the Networks and Agents Network in the Center for Complex Networks and Systems Research of the Indiana University School of Informatics. How is GiveALink different from Delicious? There are several great social tagging and social bookmarking systems and Web sites that provide many useful services such as sharing, tagging, syncing, searching, and recommendation. Why share bookmarks? We collect information about what objects (Web sites, media, etc.) people bookmark and how they annotate and organize these objects because we want to mine socio-semantic links (relationships) between them. OK, what can GiveALink do? Some functionality is already available on the GiveALink site. What are you working on next? We are developing a number of exciting new applications using the annotation data we gather from your shared links. Great, how can I help?
