As part of our growing emphasis on the journalism part of our mission, we’ll be adding news curation to our posts. I’ve found a pretty good tool in My Curator, a plug-in that automatically pulls stories from sources you set up, based on keywords, and then makes it very easy to curate into a roundup. Watch for this in the coming days.
