Friday 5: Curation, Visual Inspiration, Presentation Book, Animated Online Videos & Windows Shortcuts

Thanks for stopping by. Here are the top 5 things I’m noodling on this week. I share a whole lot more things like this on Twitter and save the better ones over in Diigo.

Feedly introduced a new feature called “Shared Collections” (paid pro feature) that lets you choose to share what you read with your teammates, colleagues, and followings. This is a great way to curate top content and position yourself as a knowledgeable leader in your field. 

“With Shared Collections, you can take the collections of reading sources you’ve already created—or create a new collection for the purpose of sharing—and make them public on one shared collections page dedicated just for you or your team. This Shared Collection page will showcase all of the blogs, publications, YouTube feeds, and Google News Alerts you want to showcase and make it easy for other people to follow the same sources with just a click.”
