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.

Robin Good: Chill, the video sharing and discovery site, has just introduced a new feature that allows anyone to clip and share, on a Pinterest-like thematic board, all of the video clips he finds on the web.
The new Chill bookmarklet works very much like the Pinterest one. When you click it, a page shows you all of the video clips found in that page and offers you to clip and "post" the one you want, with your comments.
It's as easy as that.
The generated "curated" Chill video boards are easy to scan and browse, though, in my view, a great boon would be the ability to check a few of those videos and to click a play button that plays them full screen back to back. This way I have the best of curated content, my own selection, and the final lay-back and watch gratification option.

Robin Good: News and content curators are always hungry for RSS feeds, as these are the best vehicle to receive any change-update from a web site without needing to go out and check. But not always, web public services that let users generate content, are open and happy to let you grab a RSS feed.
Case in point Pinterest.
While the service provides a RSS feed for any user that includes all of the updates and posts he has made, these are all uncategorized and mixed together, regardless of which board they were collected in.
"To generate this RSS simply click on the user’s profile and select the RSS icon on the left of the page. Another way to do this is to add feed.rss to the end of the user’s profile; for example, if you want to see the latest pins by Felicia Day your RSS URL would look like this http://pinterest.com/feliciaday/feed.rss."
To get instead the RSS feed for a specific board, here is what you need to do:
"...first open the board (e.g. Felicia Day’s Geekin Board), then, remove the last “/” from the URL and add .rss – your end URL will look like http://pinterest.com/feliciaday/geekin.rss
The RSS feed will show you the last 20 or so pins created in that board rather than the full contents."
