When browsing the various iPad magazine apps like Zite, Google Currents, News360, Feedly I have set up on my iPad, I have often wanted a simple way to publish articles to your curation solution (e.g. Curata, Scoop.it etc).
The good news is that I have found a simple mechanism to accomplish this using the Instapaper, the following blog post is a short overview on how to easily configure this. The real advantage is that you can use the 3rd party smart algorithms (I like Zite's one especially) to find great content for you.
Step 1 - Register for a free instapaper account
Relatively straight forward to register via Instapaper - keep your username and password handy.
Step 2 - Grab your instapaper rss feed for the folder
Login and scroll down to the bottom of your Instapaper page to get the RSS feed of your folder, you will be using this to integrate into your favourite curation engine.
Step 3 - Download one of the magazine readers for your iPad
Download and set your preferences in one of the iPad magazine apps - I would recommend Zite to start with. Starting finding content and when you see an article you like save it to instapaper with the built in functionality.
Step 4 - Integrate the Instapaper RSS feed into your engine
By bookmarking all your content you find interesting (I do it while having coffee in the morning), it is then sent to your engine to extract, tag and integrate with your curation solution. Depending on your objectives this could be your own personal page or a specific industry niche.
STEP 5 - Approve your content via your curation engine
Below is the content that has been extracted and ready for approval (via the Curata solution).
