Images of devastation in Haiti dominated news media, in 2010!

Check out my previous blog posts here:

     

  1. Haiti- a race against time !

This amazing report comes to us from the Boston Globe. We can only guess and imagine the horror felt by Haitians, during and after the devastating earthquake, there.

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. I agree. Take a look at these shocking photos, for yourself. I warn you that some pics are very difficult to view.

2. Haiti: Finding Missing People

The New York Times posted an interactive site to help people find missing relatives here:

   3. Mobile Emergency Preparedness

My other relevant blog post is this one, about the critical importance of mobile emergency preparedness. This is becoming more important every day. Whether it be during a winter snow storm or an every-day auto accident, social media  can be a life-saver ( literally)!

Human Curators,  (not Bots) !

Are humans being replaced or pushed out by Bots and Spiders?

With so much information out there, on the web, we have to come to grips with the staggering effects of Information Overload.  (See my other post on this topic- which is even more relevant today, than when I first wrote about it, last year!) 🙂

Steve Rosenbaum examines these three wonderful  apps for curators:

  1. Paper.li (related articles found through Twitter). See my Paper.li curated news here: http://paper.li/Coolwired/1307374952
  2. Storify (Write your own words.)
  3. Pinterested (visual pics) Request an Invitation.

Take a few minutes to explore these apps. You will find them quite interesting!

I think human curators are more important than ever! Enter  Librarians(those Information Specialists who can classify and find what you need to know)!!

[P.S. bagtheweb is another curating site I really like.
