Aggregate and Curate: Scoop and Paper

I like to sign up for Cloud sharing opportunities.

This week I have revisited Scoop.it and Paper.li. Both are very powerful resources for linking communities of practice and curating practice.

I chose Scoop.it to explore how I might share information about sport with the community of practice around the International Association of Sport Information (IASI).

This is a YouTube explainer about Scoop.it:

I looked at paper.li last year as a way to aggregate feeds from the 385 people I follow (@520507) on Twitter. I am starting to realise how powerful this aggregation is.

Paper.li:

Paper.li is a content curation service. It enables people to publish newspapers based on topics they like and treat their readers to fresh news, daily.

We believe that people (and not machines) are the ones qualified to curate the content that matters most. We also think that these same people can greatly help their own communities to find their way through this “massive content world” we live in. We’re here to help!

Every day, around the world, millions of articles are featured on Paper.lis, benefiting millions of readers. We are just at the beginning of an exciting new adventure and we think we’re on to something good.

We love the semantic web, we respect our content creators, we strive for simplicity, and we thrive on feedback.

I am hoping to be much more pro-active with these two aggregation and curation tools given my interest in both activities in an age of produsage.
