A Curated Collection of Daily Quotes Matched to Relevant Songs: Literary Jukebox

A Curated Collection of Daily Quotes Matched to Relevant Songs: Literary Jukebox | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Maria Popova is the author of Literary Jukebox, a fascinating collection of daily quotes from her favorite books, each one thematically matched to a song.


She writes about it: "Sometimes, the connections will be fairly obvious. Other times, they might be more esoteric and require some reflection.


Literary Jukebox is truly a work of love and a great example of how curating something you truly enjoy, can create permanent value, while providing cultural insight, an opportunity for music discovery to the reader as well as exposure and visibility to the books and music authors included.



N.B.: I encourage you to support Maria's work, as she is a brilliant and inspiring mind and her work on Brain Pickings is a clear demonstration of someone whose work benefits no big brand, advertiser or sponsor, but the likes of you and me and our ability to remain curious.

Capture Any Portion of Any Web Page and Post/Embed It Anywhere with Kwout | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
A brilliant way to quote
Robin Good's insight:



Kwout is a web app that allows you to grab any portion of any web page, including text and images and to easily post it on your site, blog or on your preferred social media channel.


To use Kwout you install a Firefox add-on or the Chrome extension and whenever you see content you want to "quote" you click the Kwout button and then you select the part of the page you want to quote with your mouse. 


At this point you can select whether to share, tweet or embed your selected quote whereever you like. A unique feature makes it possible for all of the links contained in the part of the page you grabbed to remain fully active and clickable. 


Kwout archives also all of the "quotes" you create and can auto-generate a page that shows your history of cited content.


P.S.: This is not a new tool and it has not been updated since 2011 but it is still working fine.


Free to use.

Captura cualquier parte de una página Web o post para incrustarla en cualquier lugar con Kwout

 

Kwout es una aplicación web que te permite capturar cualquier parte de cualquier página web, incluyendo el texto y las imágenes y te permite publicarla fácilmente en tu sitio, blog o en su canal de medios sociales preferido.

Para utilizar Kwout debes instalar un complemento o extensión de Firefox o Chrome y cada vez que veas algún contenido que deseas "citar" debes hacer clic en el botón "Kwout" y luego seleccionas la parte de la página que deseas capturar con el ratón.

En este punto puedes seleccionar si deseas compartir, tweetear o si deseas integrar la cita seleccionada en el lugar que prefieras.

Una característica única hace posible que todos los enlaces contenidos en la "captura" permanezcan en plena actividad y te lleven al lugar indicado al hacer clic.

Al mismo tiempo todas las "citas" y archivos que crees con Kwout pueden generar automáticamente una página que muestra el historial de los contenidos citados.

PS: Esta herramienta no es nueva y no ha sido actualizada desde 2011, pero todavía está trabajando muy bien.

De uso libre.
