Jeremiah Owyang makes a number of great observations in this post that he interprets as the end of the golden era of tech blogging. I strongly recommend reading it as it’s indeed hard not to see a pattern after the sale of TechCrunch, of ReadWriteWeb or the departure of Ben Parr or Marshall Kirckpatrick. Is […]Read More
I re-scooped this from Giuseppe Mauriello as I felt the somehow inconclusive conclusion was very close to what I personally felt: yes, curation is changing and digital curation will not be the same as it used to be pre-digital. Bottom line is we need to be prepared to live with softer boundaries than before of what is good and what isn’t.

This is kind of old but I rediscovered it recently on Quora and I felt it was an interesting opportunity to review what’s been accomplished in 2011 in that respect.
Seb Paquet is an interesting contributor to Social Media and a professor at the University of Quebec in Montreal.
I think 2011 has been a great year for curation : lots of new developments, great improvements on existing platform and raising awareness. It’s interesting to look back at questions like these and measure the progress we’re making both as platform developers and as members of a community with a particular interest on that subject.
While at LeWeb last week, I was interviewed by Michelle Chmielewski to discuss on curation with Jean-Marie Hulot, Fotopedia’s founder.Read More

This a great blog post from Rian van der Merwe , describing the noise you can find on the web now, and especially content just created for SEO purposes or advertisers. As many, Rian is tired of it. “I used to believe that if you write with passion and clarity about a topic you know well […]Read More
This makes me want to read the book and know more. Clay Johnson seems to make an interesting parallel between the way we consume information today and the way we sometimes overconsume food. Leading to obesity and other health consequences. Are curators the chefs of the “nouvelle cuisine” of information? (Thanks to @Charles_Liebert for sharing […]Read More
Can you teach how to be authentic and engage online? I absolutely believe it especially when we talk about curation. We are all natural curators. We have all a passion, a message, a topic we love to focus on or to talk about with others. This Monday, at pariSoma in San Francisco, it was “the art of curation” for me. I was introducing my series by presenting what a curator is to me, and exploring why curation is important for an individual or a brand in the digital age of information overload.Read More
Signal beats Noise: Find your voice thru curation (a panel proposal for SxSW 2012 where I’ve been asked to participate). Read More
Scoop.it, a multimedia content curation publication platform, is launching a Developer Challenge open to all software developers to create iPhone, Android, and iPad applications.
Enter the challenge for a chance to win $1,000 (first place) or an HTC Desire S phone (second place)!Read More
Last Monday Scoop.it was invited by pariSoma to partake in a panel discussing: “is curation the future of the Social Web?” With Burt Herman from Storify and Chris McCann from StartupDigest, Guillaume Decugis our CEO, discussed the new social behavior that curation represents online. The debate was moderated by Ben Parr, Mashable’s editor-at-large.
The first question from Ben Parr was legitimate. ”What’s the hell is curation?”
As with most innovation, it can be used for good and bad: finding the right direction is the responsibility of human beings, not of your laptop.Read More
This weekendʼs TEDxSF “Alive! Maximum Living as a Human” was everything you expect from a TEDx: inspiring, surprising, moving. Scoop.it was proud to be there at the Yerba Buena Center For The Arts as a media partner. I have to confess I was very proud to see and feel how useful our platform was to spread the word before the event, to capture the atmosphere during it and keep the conversation engaged after. The TEDxSF team was a great partner as they really wanted to explore and leverage as much as possible Scoop.it especially with our latest release “Scoop.it everywhere”.Read More
According to Steve Rubel, Content published on social media is “like wet snow, melting as soon as it hits the ground”. But here’s what we learned so far on how it behaved on Scoop.it.Read More
When the word “blog” arrived in our vocabulary in the late 90’s, it was a new way of communicating using a new disruptive medium, the Internet. 10 years later, blogging is reinventing itself. It probably comes as no surprise that we believe here at Scoop.it that curation is playing a huge part in the evolution […]Read More
Amsterdam seems to be the ideal place for a conference at a human size. That’s really what hits me the most during this three days at TNW Conference: Everything was done to make the attendees, speakers and organizers meet, talk, interact and inspire each other. Sometimes, you just have the feeling the stage could be […]Read More
We love to discover and share new ways Scoop.it is being used by our great beta users. We’ve had a couple of major events using Scoop.it this week and we thought it was worth sharing.
Scoop.it was used by the ReedMidem, the organizer of Connected Creativity at MIPTV, a new global forum uniting the world’s dominant market forces and leading innovators in entertainment, mobile media and technology at Cannes.Read More
Why does SXSW matter? Because it’s SXSW! It gets people excited, fills teams and startups full of hope and focus for a few weeks, or months, and they all then bring this energy to Austin. This naive “I will be the change maker of the year” will suddenly meet the more cynical old players, who feel at home at the festival, who know which streets you should take between two parties to meet the “right people” before hitting the “right places” to be identified as the “right projects”. You start in this endless chase, or at least I did at the beginning.Read More
The goal of this summit is to explore how social medias and new technologies empower us by creating new ways of sharing information and engage citizens. A perfect fit to present Scoop.it !Read More
We’ve been in private beta since a little more than 2 months now, and we’re happy to have been covered by several blogs. It seems the “curation topic” is getting hotter and hotter, and we’re definitely part of it.
We want to thank all the bloggers who have written about us, and of course, all our first users for the huge amount of feedback they’ve sent us. We’ve already shared the video we had about us, but here is a longer list of blogposts:

There’s a button in Scoop it that you cannot miss: the Bookmarklet.
The principle is easy: while you are browning the web, if you stumble on a very interesting link (it can be a video, a song, an article, a picture, or whatever), you can share it directly on your Topic on scoop it!Read More
The Scoop.it team attended the leading tech european event last week, Leweb. As we’re in private beta, our objective was to get as much feedback as possible and meet key people from the tech industry. Goal 100% achieved, and even more as we got “as a bonus” a few interviews. Each time it’s Guillaume Decugis who speaks, the CEO of Goojet, the company behind Scoop.it
The first one for Capecalm, a Web-TV about startups, entrepreneurship and innovation.
And then, a few others with French medias:
The day before Leweb, we had the visit of Frenchweb for an interviewRead More

Welcome to the Scoop.it blog ! Scoop.it was just officially born a few days ago and though it’s just the beginning, we’re very happy with the result. We hope you like it too.
We created Scoop.it because we felt social media needed much better curation tools than the ones which exist today.
What do we mean by that ?Read More
