Curated Content Friday Tech Savvy Roundup

As some of you know, I wrote a blog post about curated content yesterday. Because it’s still on my mind — partially because of the mind-numbing number of content curation tools — free and paid — available to bloggers and content marketers like you and me, I’m writing a little more about the topic.

In case it isn’t obvious, the Friday Tech Savvy Roundup is an example of curated content. I choose things mainly based on quality of quirkiness — and I love themes.

Have a great weekend!

Technology Answers to Questions You May Not Have Known You Had

The Digital Disconnect

I’ve heard of — and written about — the digital divide, but maybe I like this term even better. This article specifically refers to people who do not like or understand technology, but still have important roles in marketing. I would think that, today, top level marketing jobs would require a certain je ne sais tech savvy. But maybe I would be wrong. What do you think?

P.S. Very long URL, no?

Instagrin

Instagrin is a new-to-me way to curate images without — and please correct me if I’m wrong — having to worry about copyright. I will be using this website to find images for blog posts and Facebook Pages. Vive l’API!

App of The Week — Flipboard

Flipboard app controversy. I use Flipboard — it is a content aggregator. I’m not super impressed with it because I don’t like to fight with the design to get the information I want. I am included this here because the controversy has interesting implications for bloggers.
