I've been having a bit of fun recently with tools for curators. Quite a few have popped up and I wouldn't bet against many more arriving in the coming months. In an age of content abundance it's inevitable that we will look to curators to filter streams for our consumption and they'll all need tools. Here are a few you might want to try out...
1. Storify - I used this during SXSW to pull together notes from the speakers, reference what they were talking about and feedback on Twitter. I love it. Check out how journalist Andy Carvin has used it to great effect recently.
2. Pearltrees - A playful way of organising your stories. The more I add to my Pearltree the more I'm liking it. Here's my Creative Process Pearltree. I've found I'm bookmarking less on Delicious since I've started using it. I should get out of that habit because they are bot very different tools
4. Scoop.it! - I've not had a chance to play with this one so I can't comment on its functionality. Having said that after a quick look through some of the profiles it looks worthy of a play. Some great pages waiting to be discovered - like this one on TV in the digital age.
