Pearltrees: Curation Tool Drops Flash And User Interface For Pintrest-like Format -SVW

Pearltrees: Curation Tool Drops Flash And User Interface For Pintrest-like Format -SVW
Posted by Tom Foremski - May 23, 2014 Pearltrees (a former consulting client) this week introduced the 2.0 version of its popular web page curation tool built completely with HTML 5.0 and with a completely different user interface and metaphor. The tool now represents web pages as a series of rectangles in a "dynamic grid" allowing users to quickly organize and share their web collections. The prior interface was based on circles, or "pearls" connected in a molecular pattern to other "pearls." Sometimes new users thought it looked complicated and the user interface change simplifies people's first impressions. Patrice Lamothe, CEO and co-founder of Pearltrees (above) said the new interface in the latest version makes the tool more powerful and useful because of the drag and drop features, improved sharing, and content discovery technologies. It's quite a risk for any web based service to make such a radical change in its user interface. About Pearltrees Related:  QuestablyArticles de Presse

The Internet’s Social Libraries: Pinterest and Pearltrees - Nvate Miranda Moore Social media is something that most people use every day. Whether we’re updating our statuses on Facebook or taking pictures of our food on Instagram, social media is used to keep up with those near and far from us. A popular trend in social media is a sort of webpage described as a “social library.” What are these social libraries and how do they stack up against each other? What is Pinterest? Pinterest is basically an online pin board that relies more heavily on pictures than text, though text can also be used. Pinterest was founded by Ben Silbermann, Paul Sciarra, and Evan Sharp. Much like that of other social networking sites, Pinterest has its own terms for how to work the site. In addition to the website, Pinterest also has a mobile app that is available for Apple and Android devices. What is Pearltrees? Pearltrees was founded by Patrice Lamothe, Alain Cohen, Nicolas Cynober, Samuel Tissier, and Francis Rocaboy. Credit: Pearltrees Pearltrees versus Pinterest More To Read:

Free Personal RSS Reader & Aggregator For Everyone Pearltrees lands $1.6M more for social discovery on the Web | Ve Pearltrees, a social tool for discovering and organizing Web content, has announced it secured a second round of funding for €1.3 million (US$1.6 million). The funding will be used to expand globally, especially in the US. Pearltrees is a free online social network that allows users to tag (or “pearl,” in the site’s parlance) content on the Web and share it with others who have similar interests. Several other companies could be considered competitors, including recent DEMO company Pinyadda, whose offering gathers and organizes Web content relating to a user’s specified interests. The recent round of funding was led by European entrepreneurs and angel investors based in France, Switzerland, Germany and England. The Paris-based company launched at French technology and startup conference LeWeb in December 2009.

What problem does Pearltrees solve? 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.

This Hero Story of the Weekend Just Took an Unexpected Political Turn The news: America recently recovered its last prisoner of war in Afghanistan, Bowe Bergdahl, after nearly five long years as a Taliban prisoner. But this positive story could take a downward spiral very quickly. Some soldiers who served with and searched for Bergdahl have been quick to cast him as a traitor who risked American lives by deserting, and that the long search for him may have resulted in a number of U.S. deaths. According to former members of his platoon, Bergdahl deserted a guard post and walked off his base with nothing but a compass, knife, water, camera, and diary. Six troops were killed searching for him, and attacks in Paktika province reportedly increased in the days following his capture. Former Sgt. "I'm happy for the Bergdahl family and friends to have their loved one home, but I am angered deeply at Bowe ... The background: The circumstances of Bergdahl's original disappearance have been disputed for most of his captivity. "The future is too good to waste on lies.

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”. The other main improvement lies in the shift from Flash to HTML5 technology, which will make a huge difference for all those who never update their Flash player – and those who think Flash is “so 2011”. Why giving up the core of the product, after 4,5 years of existence and 1,7 million users?
