Collect, Organize and Curate Web Content Into Visual Boards with Mammothhq

Robin Good's insight:


Mammoth is a web app which allows you to easily grab, collect and organize any content you find on the web. From text, to images and video clips, can be easily dragged and dropped into the vertical sidebar widget called Mini-Mammoth and placed into different collections called "boards".

.

Boards can be set to be public or private. 5 GB of free space available for every new user. For every person you refer you get an extra GB. Can invite others to collaborate with you.  

.

My comment: Good tool to collect and organize stuff that you need for your own projects and interests. Differently than similar tools it offers a full text and content editor to enrich, complement and annotate boards with original stuff opening the way also to learning and educational purposes.

.

Free to use.

Buena herramienta para recopilar y organizar todo el material que puedes necesitar para tus proyectos e intereses. A diferencia de otras herramientas similares, esta ofrece un completo editor de textos y un editor de contenido para enriquecer, complementar y hacer anotaciones con material original. También deja abierto el camino de su uso para el aprendizaje y los fines educativos .

Paraît simple à utiliser pour un premier travail de collecte d'information.

Google Search Starts To Reward Curators, Collections and Quality Lists

Robin Good: In the overall effort to improve the quality of its search engine result pages Google is continuining to make significant improvements to its search engine.

Starting from now all users worldwide can see Knowledge Graph results showing up on top of search results as a visuable and browsable list of alternative options to explore.


Not only.


Google is now officially goig after the gathering and curation of the best list, collections and guides on just about any topic.

From the official Google Blog. Read it carefully: "Finally, the best answer to your question is not always a single entity, but a list or group of connected things.


It’s quite challenging to pull these lists automatically from the web. But we’re now beginning to do just that.


So when you search for [california lighthouses], [hurricanes in 2008] or [famous female astronomers], we’ll show you a list of these things across the top of the page. And by combining our Knowledge Graph with the collective wisdom of the web, we can even provide more subjective lists like [best action movies of the 2000s] or [things to do in paris]."



Very interesting. 8/10

Clip Any Web Page, Text or Link and Organize Into Collections with Evernote WebClipper

Clip Any Web Page, Text or Link and Organize Into Collections with Evernote WebClipper | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you need to do research on a specific topic or need to easily collect and organize notes, web clippings and other content from the web into shareable "public" collections, you may want to consider Evernote (and in particular its Chrome extension and its Web Clipper feature).

Den Nicholson, has a short but useful tutorial just on this, with a couple of short video clips that can give you immediately an idea of whether Evernote could be a good addition to your curator's toolkit.


Useful. 7/10

Curation Approaches: Sprints vs Marathons

Curation Approaches: Sprints vs Marathons | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: It's true, when you create a "curated" collection, it's generally done in one of two possible approaches:


a) the "sprint", where due to time-sensitive issues lots of elevant items are collected in a short period of time. 


b) the "marathon", where relevant collection items are slowly but steadily collected over time.


This short article on the Bundlr blog acknowledges this typical behavior, as well as identifying some relevant examples and characteristics. 


Insightful. 7/10
