This and That: 02.25.12

+ With all the hub-bub around Pinterest in the last month, it's no surprise someone pulled out PinClout. Yup. PinClout.

+ Need to work on your presentation skills? Even if you don't, you'll find some good refreshers here. Key takeaway? Practice.

+ One of the folks I follow on Twitter pointed me to this list of 85+ Copywriting Resources post. I haven't had a chance to go through them all, but looks like there are at least a few goodies in the mix there worth checking out.

+ Now that the web seems to be going more to a visual format with the likes of Pinterest, Flickr, Tumblr, etc, there's also a newish site called Cowbird that I am thinking of checking out. They are invite only right now and describe themselves as:
Cowbird is a small community of storytellers, focused on a deeper, longer-lasting, more personal kind of storytelling than you’re likely to find anywhere else on the Web. Cowbird allows you to keep a beautiful audio-visual diary of your life, and to collaborate with others in documenting the overarching “sagas” that shape our world today. Sagas are themes and events that touch millions of lives and shape the human story. Our short-term goal is to pioneer a new form of participatory journalism, grounded in the simple human stories behind major news events. Our long-term goal is to build a public library of human experience, so the knowledge and wisdom we accumulate as individuals may live on as part of the the commons, available for this and future generations to look to for guidance.
