Pinterest Personal Archiving

Guess what. Archiving just became cool.

With the sudden popularity of Pinterest, not only can you become your own online content curator, but you have the ability to archive that content into logical sections for future research and recall. Not only does this benefit your own knowledge-seeking, but the simplicity of the categories provided (and user-created) also speak to those searching your slice of the Interwebs for similar genres, subjects, and ideas.

Home archiving = (hopefully) a better appreciation for the field and practice at large!

 

UPDATE: Read a little bit more about Pinterest’s personal curation freedoms, along with some poignant ideas for teaching proper citations and description here, in an article on Tame the Web
