When is the social curation bubble going to burst?

When is the social curation bubble going to burst?
You just can’t move for social curation services right now. The biggest noise might be coming from Pinterest, which is growing like a weed — but whether it’s the new-look Delicious, Switzerland’s Paperli, shopping curation site Svpply, image service Mlkshk or another site, the fact is that almost everybody seems to want to help you save and sort and share the things you find on the web right now. With this swirl of activity, then, it’s no surprise to hear that Parisian service Pearltrees — slogan “collect, organize, discover” — has just raised another $6 million of funding, led by local conglomerate Groupe Accueil. The company, which has been running in public since 2009, welcomed the injection of funds as a way to help expand and scale up its system for bookmarking and organizing, which is based around a clustered visual interface. And it needs that scale. Right now Pearltrees is small and has moderate momentum, building up 350,000 users in the past three years.

Pearltrees Adds Dropbox-like Features -SVW Posted by Tom Foremski - November 21, 2013 Pearltrees (a former client) has added the ability to visually organize your computer-based files by uploading them to your account, and also share them with others. Up till now it has been primarily used to create visual collections of web pages and any other online content. However, with the new feature your files will be visible to others unless you pay for a special private account so be careful what you upload to your Pearltree. The free version of a file sharing service like Dropbox keeps your files private unless you specifically authorize public access. More info here: Your Files Also Can Be Organized in Pearltrees!

Social Media: Pearltrees Ha Rediseñado Radicalmente su Servicio de Curaduría en Línea para Llegar a un Público más Amplio Pearltrees, el servicio de curación en línea con sede en París que puso en marcha a finales de 2009, siempre fue conocido por su interfaz basada en Flash, bastante peculiar que le ha permitido organizar favoritos de Internet, fotos, fragmentos de texto y documentos en una estructura en forma similar a un mapa mental. Para los usuarios que recibieron esa metáfora, que era un servicio muy potente, pero su interfaz también presentaba una barrera de entrada para los nuevos usuarios. Hoy en día, la compañía está poniendo en marcha un rediseño radical que elimina la mayor parte del equipaje de Pearltrees 1.0. Pearltrees Pearltrees refers to itself as "a place for your interests".[8] Functionally the product is a visual and collaborative curation tool[9][10][11][12] that allows users to organize, explore and share any URL they find online as well as to upload personal photos, files and notes.[13] The product features a unique visual interface[14][15] that allows users to drag and organize collected URLs, and other digital objects.[16] that themselves can be further organized into collections and sub-collections,[17] (URLs). Users of the product can also engage in social/collaborative curation using a feature called Pearltrees Teams.[18] Pearltrees was founded by Patrice Lamothe, CEO,[22] Alain Cohen, CTO,[23] Nicolas Cynober, Technical Director,[24] Samuel Tissier, Ergonomy/UI[25] and Francois Rocaboy, CMO.[26] History[edit] Development of Pearltrees began in 2007.

Pearltrees launches Android app, makes leap into file management Android users looking for a novel way to organize your information, look no further. Pearltrees announced that its app is finally launching to Android phones, and the platform is adding some Android-like functionality. From the get-go Pearltrees will support 2,500 Android devices and 98.3 percent of Android operating systems, which is commendable considering the varying assortment of screen sizes and should-be-retired Android OS’ that are still in use out there. “Tiny” screen sizes for obvious reasons – considering the need to navigate through trees of information – won’t benefit from the update. With branches extending to and from trees and pearls hanging from or connecting each branch, we’ve highlighted its novelty before.

Thermodynamique Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. On peut définir la thermodynamique de deux façons simples : la science de la chaleur et des machines thermiques ou la science des grands systèmes en équilibre. La première définition est aussi la première dans l'histoire. Pearltrees releases a new version, without any pearls nor trees The Paris-based startup founded in 2009 once declared: “We focus on the visual potential of Pearltrees to let people dive deeply into their interests and nearly feel them”. Their product, offering a digital curation tool, was unique because of the visual interface voluntareely original: links and folders symbolized by rounded pearls attached together like the branches of a tree. Today, pearls and trees have disappeared to make room for a brand new and larger organisation tool. Two years ago, everyone wanted to build products around “curation” and “interest graph”. Today the keywords have shifted to “collaborative SaaS tool” and “organizing data”.

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. Heureusement le développeur Josh Berkus est là pour vous expliquer point par point comment faire pour être certain de ruiner et dissoudre toute velléité communautaire (au cours d’une intervention donnée il y a un mois à la Linux.Conf.au et relatée ici par Jonathan Corbet)[1] Un article évidemment ironique (qui détourne les howto), mais qui donne à réfléchir sur les relations subtiles et complexes qui peuvent exister entre les communautés et les entreprises qui œuvrent sur un même projet. Pas toujours facile de se comprendre en effet quand les uns disent plutôt « logiciel libre » et les autres plutôt « open source » (voire même parfois carrément « fauxopen source »).

i agree with you s243a. my motivation to join pearltrees was not to import my bookmarks, but to have a useful and fun learning application. especially the web design developement content. of course, once hooked on pearltrees my motivations changed. i am an information junkie and a great place version 1 is for that addiction. haha. so yes, for me, the quality content of version 1's power curators definitely solidified my upgrade to premium membership. was that not a money hit for the power of quality curation and strickly in the version 1 format. and since then i have upgraded to a premium membership plan that allows me to offer premium membership to my husband, family, and friends if they choose. in my world that's called income generated via membership of quality curators . make sense? by ebbead Jun 2

@s243a Sur le "make money"; eh oui, les utilisateurs vont commencer à réfléchir sur ce qu'est un cloud. by reel Jun 1

Cet article de presse, de 2012, cursif, était obnubilé par le côté interconnectivité "objets" de Pearltrees et n'avait pas anticipé le côté interconnectivité "sujets" (en train d'être créé en 2014). La mise en contraste avec Pinterest (confondant personnalités et profils stats) est savoureuse... by reel Jun 1

This article gives some insight on what they mean by “democratize”. Essentially it suggests that they think that there may be more money in potential users than in their existing user base. The article claims that only 1% of people invest much time in curation. However. Isn’t there something to be said for quality content? Couldn’t quality content be a big driver of traffic for the site? by s243a Jun 1
