Robin Good's insight:
If you are a NGO or a non-profit organization, your reference point for anything that relates to effective communication online should be Beth Kanter.
In the presentation / discussion she facilitated yesterday in San Francisco she illustrated the why, how and the key benefits that content curation can bring to any organization.
In this article she published before the event, you can find some valuable indications of how true "value" can be added to your content by adopting a "curating" perspective and what are the type of questions you should be considering to evaluate in a critical fashion the content you produce or curate.

Robin Good's insight:
Google Tour Builder is a new web app which allows you to create visual stories that integrate maps, location pins, routes followed, texts, images and video clips into a shareable content bundle.
You simply log in with your Google account into GTB and you can start immediately building a tour by identifying specific spots on the world map and by providing additional information to build your story.
Completed tours (which are set to private by default) can be edited at any time and can be publicly shared and viewed by anyone with a web browser.
N.B.: Currently, Tour Builder requires the Google Earth plugin which is only available for Windows and Mac OS X 10.6+. While tours can't be viewed on mobile browsers, they can be accessed using the Google Earth App, which is available for Android, iPhone/iPad, and Linux.
My comment: An excellent new experimental tool from Google which can provide great benefit to those in need to showcase, present and divulge their projects, journeys, or tourism-related itineraries.
Free to use.
