Clipmarks curating content onto your blog

Clipmarks curating content onto your blog 

 Clipmarks works on Typepad... Blogger, Movable type... Vox... and WordPress blogs

clipmarks

Clipmarks works on lots of blogs.  I was getting ready to go  to my open house yesterday when I saw another real estate agent share a Columbus Dispatch article about Central Ohio house values on his Blogger blog.  He used Clipmarks to share it with his blog readers.   I saw him tweet a link to his post on his blog.

So I joined Clipmarks...

Clipmarks curating content - Clip-to-Blog

The concept of curating content... confuses me to begin with.  Here on ActiveRain we've been saying

"you can't just take that!" 

"It is not yours..."

and 

"it is not right." 

We blog about how you need to write "all original all the time"  Clipmarks will not work on ActiveRain.. if that is the only place you are blogging.  Or perhaps it will work... if you can use Clipmark to add content to Facebook why not here? 

You can save clips for other to see... post them to Facebook. Quoting the Clipmarks.com site:

"You can save clips publicly for others to see, post them to Facebook, or embed a widget of them on your own site. You can also save clips privately for your own viewing later. Your clip collection is searchable from any computer with an internet connection (including your iPhone, Blackberry, etc)."

Post a widget in your sidebar on ActiveRain?

Does using Clipmark somehow change things? Newpapers will allow you to take their content so long as you use this nifty new tool?  Does this make using content something other than:

Plagiarism and Content Theft for Fun and Profit!

Clipmarks curating content onto your WordPress blog

Anyone using WordPress.org tried Clipmark?  I was not able to get Clipmarks to work on my WordPress.org  blog.

Is "Press It"  similar?  Is that a WordPress plugin or widget?  WordPress bloggers, do you use "Press It"???

I think I will stay away from it.  I stick to writing my own stuff.  The most I borrow is a joke or a quote

Not sure about the whole thing but I am going to look into it a little more.

Well, I stopped and loaded clipmarks, rebooted and logged back on and don't see any evidence of it being here. I'm expecting it to be an enhanced cut and paste and it could be usuful, not for plagerizing content, but for saving fragments, the way one with a highter marks a text book in yellow to find study points later.

Glenn sounds like you did the add on for Firefox?  do you see a little orange  or green  paper clip on the top right? 

It will little paper clip? be green until you click on it.  When it is clicked it turns orange and a Clipmark  toolbar shows up?  

 

I remember something else like this probably back in 2008?  Highlighting.  Collecting.  Sharing content.   I joined.  They shut down shortly after.  

thanks for the comments.

It turned out I had to register as well and I finally have it worked out. I can see many uses for this tool that wouldn't involve plagerism at all. Thanks for pointing it out.

I am not saying the tool is plaigarism or the post I read was plaigarized Glenn. 

I registered yesterday.  I can't get it to work on my WP blog but I could use it on Facebook, do a widget... or actually I probably can make it work on my WP blog if I want to.  I probably can get "Press That"  (used to be known as "Press It" to work easier.  That's been around forever and I have never used it, it's just a tool.

I saw it on Twitter and just went to investigate...I am not sure I would have seen it on his blog if he had not tweeted it.

I think it is a great way to share a little deeper sourcing for blogs.  I don't see it as content as much as a start for the discussion.
