Robin Good's insight:
Bill French has just released and made available for purchase a Google Docs based mini-app he has developed, which allows anyone to curate online content without needing to have a website or blog.
The app whic is called Qyurate, allows to capture and edit / curate content found on the web, to archive and store it by sending to a dedicated email, and to publish it via RSS.
Instead of emailing your annotated content items to a blogging platform such as Tumblr, email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A running process at email@example.com email address will see your posts, parse them into your available content for your feeds, and organize them by tags.
Tagging your posts is achieved by adding a name-value pair in parenthesis at the end of the email subject line.
The Art of QR Codes (qyurate:entconnect)
In the above example, this curated post will be categorized under “entconnect”. It is also possible to tag a post for use in multiple categories.
This makes it simple to dispatch curated items to more than one destination via separate RSS feeds.
Price: you name a price starting from $10
* What I have done to get access without buying, is to provide a fictitious PIN when asked, and it seems you can go through it without problems.
Robin Good: One of the best ways to provide valuable content to your fans and potential customers is to serve them a periodical digest of some really precious gems. Few and very good.
This approach is the opposite of what most companies do when it comes to sending out email updates. They direct all of their effort at promoting their own news and stories, but often these are not worth much in the eye of the reader.
Selecting instead some quality resources, few and very good, and serving them periodically to your subscribers can be an excellent strategy to gain reputation, trust and authority.
