According to Eric Schmidt (CEO of Google) we create as much information every two days as was created from the dawn of civilisation until 2003. That is breathtaking. We know that the amount of information isn’t the problem it is more how we are able to use it wisely – without drowning!

Here are a number of tools that you could use to curate the information you find on the web and want to keep.

A fantastic tool for the visual learners amongst us. With the click of a button you can save images, text, weblinks, videos – all the “pearls” from the web in a very simple graphic form, Screen Shot 2014-01-15 at 3.53.34 pmvery similar to a mind map. Simple to set up and use to curate and share. Check out my Pearls….I love to share. pearltrees.lyndacutting
