has a new look is a site that lets users curate content in social media and share what they find valueable on Twitter, YouTube and Flickr. It is till in beta and works only with Twitter, but yesterday they announced some new features and a new design.

“Today we’re turning it into a place, that let’s you follow the topics you are interested in and create and share your own topics with everyone else.

As part of this process, we are moving away from being a pure Twitter curation tool and instead of just allowing you to curate tweets, you will be able to curate any information into your bundles from tomorrow on.”

Although I still can’t curate any other source than Twitter, there are some new features worth mentioning. For example, there is a tab for “mentions” which is a way for me to find out if any of my curated content has been used by anyone else on There is also some statistics on each of the bundles that shows how many times the bundle has been viewed (a bundle is simply one channel or topic in which I create content).

I have created a few bundles like and Below you can also find an embedded curated bundle about the SIME10 event in Stockholm.

Foursquare Super Duper Swarm Badge

I am currently attending SIME in Stockholm and the first presentation this morning was by Josh Williams, CEO and co-founder of Gowalla. I hope to write down some thoughts on that later.

But that reminded me of my visit to Vienna this weekend. During the World Blogging Forum 2010, more than 500 people checked in on Foursquare at the same time. This earned all of us the much desired Super Duper Swarm Badge. So at least among the bloggers at the event in Vienna, Foursquare was the clear leder in the location-based services race.

The next level is the Epic Swarm Badge when 1,000 people check in to a venue on Foursquare. That’s a tad bit harder to achieve.

Preparing for SIME

I will be attending SIME (Scandinavian Interactive Media Event) tomorrow and on Thursday in Stockholm, Sweden. Hope to get to listen to exciting speakers such as Joi Ito, Technorati founder David Sifry and Kris Hoet from Microsoft. I also look forward to hear about Mohammed El-Fatatry talk about Muxlim – the world’s largest muslim community. If you will be there, do say hi. Hopefully I will get time to do some live blogging as well.
