How Pearltrees is the new bookmarketing tools?
Since the Web first came online in 1991, it has grown and improved beyond anyone's predictions. Unlike the gray background, mono-spaced text and ugly graphics on the Web in those early years, today's Web is rich with video, interactive applications and other useful and distracting goodies. But even after all these years, the way we find, navigate and save content on the Web works pretty much like it always did. Here's a page with text. But now there's a conspicuously innovative new option. The service is functionally similar in some ways to social bookmarking sites, but its core function is "curation," which Wikipedia defines as the "selection, preservation, maintenance, and collection and archiving of digital assets." Described by one blogger as a social bookmarking tool based on "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon," Pearltrees looks a bit like Google's "Wonder Wheel," but it isn't used the same way. The Pearltrees interface is appealing and intuitive to use. Maybe you follow several sports. Related:  What is Pearltrees?Curatorial CuriosityWhy Pearltrees?

Pearltrees Radically Redesigns Its Online Curation Service To Reach A Wider Audience Pearltrees, the Paris-based online curation service that launched in late 2009, was always known for its rather quirky Flash-based interface that allowed you to organize web bookmarks, photos, text snippets and documents into a mindmap-like structure. For users who got that metaphor, it was a very powerful service, but its interface also presented a barrier to entry for new users. Today, the company is launching a radical redesign that does away with most of the old baggage of Pearltrees 1.0. Gone are the Flash dependency, the tree diagrams, the little round pearls that represented your content and most everything else from the old interface. Here is what Pearltrees 1.0 looked like: And here is the new version: Pearltrees’ mission is still to allow you to organize everything you want on the service (in that respect, it almost competes with Evernote). 3. “We took what everybody liked about the old version and put it into a visualization that everybody could grasp right away,” Lamothe said.

Pearltrees Develops its New Interface Further with 'Meaning' Content and file curation and sharing platform Pearltrees has been updated today with new features that include ‘Meaning’, a new organization system. ‘Meaning’ is based on a traditional grid and allows users to drag and drop content into collections that can be shared with others and collaborated on with real-time synchronization. Pearltrees tells us that it hopes the new layout will encourage more collaboration between users. The company may have a point – a conventional grid could well take less time for new users to adapt to than Pearltrees’ old ‘tree of pearls‘ look that it moved away from earlier this year, even if it’s not quite as unique to look at. The France-based company’s video below shows Meaning in action: Meanwhile, Pearltrees’ mobile apps on iOS and Android have been updated with new features including a ‘tunable interest feed’ that delivers personalized content recommendations to your account. ➤ Pearltrees

[LeWeb'11] "Pearltrees est à l'origine de la curation !" Patrice Lamothe, CEO LeWeb'11, c'est the place to be pour tout ceux qui s'intéressent de près ou de loin au web.

Parmi les personnalités de choix présentes, j'ai eu l'occasion de rencontrer Patrice Lamothe, CEO de Pearltrees, une boîte française, mais résolument tournée vers le monde.

6 reasons to use Pearltrees Pearltrees is the first and largest social curation community on the Internet. It’s a place to organize, discover and share all the cool content you find online. However, beyond this basic definition, a question remains: why would I want to use Pearltrees? Well, what I want to share with you are six major use cases (or reasons) we’ve identified as being most popular across our entire community of web curators.

Curating the Best of Tech and Social Media for Families Many people search the web, read content every day and share that content.

Comment détruire votre communauté en 10 leçons Si vous avez le malheur de développer un projet « open source » au sein de votre entreprise alors vous courrez le risque de voir arriver une « communauté » qui peut à tout moment s’agréger autour du code source de votre logiciel et en menacer sa bonne gouvernance.
