Bundle Your Research. #edtech

Have a touch of writer's block tonight.  Rather than try to get creative, I'm just going to come right out and tell you about a new kind of social networking aggregator called Bundlr.  It's not quite social bookmarking but it's based on a similar concept.  Using the "Bundle This" browser button, you can clip and collect information off of any website.  But it goes way beyond text.  You can collect pages and media from YouTiube, Vimeo, Flickr, SlideShare, Twitter, Wikipedia, Scribd and Audioboo.  Once you are ready to share you can do so through a link, an RSS feed or embed it into your own site.  Additionally, Bundlr allows you to collaboratively gather the information that goes into your final product.  Basically, you are curating the web.  One of the more popular Bundles at the moment is regarding the recent tragedy in Norway and is a good example of how you can use Bundlr to gather and share information across multiple social platforms.
