Manifesto for the Content Curator Every hour thousands of new videos are uploaded online. Blog posts are written and published. Millions of tweets and other short messages are shared. To say there is a flood of content being created online now seems like a serious understatement. Until now, the interesting thing is that there are relatively few technologies or tools that have been adopted in a widespread way to manage this deluge.

You can use Zimilate to save images, notes, links, simple files, and even entire webpages.

MySpace reposition on curation The launch of the new MySpace begins today; it marks not only the release of a completely overhauled design, but the start of a fundamental shift in focus for what was once the world's preeminent social network.

StumbleUpon - The One True Simple Way to Organize Your Online Reading Ever heard of StumbleUpon? It’s been around for quite some time (you can Google it if you are truly an information freak) and, according to my humble opinion, StumbleUpon’s value is underestimated by everyone.

Many consider StumbleUpon to be a “social network” and although I can understand why, I mean it does connect people and information, well, I’m still not so keen to jump on that grenade, even after taking into consideration the platform’s long term existence.

Storify: Social Media Curation And Storytelling 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 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.
