different source. You go into say Flicker, you go into Youtube and you’ve dragged over a Youtube video. This is how you actually build it. And in here you can — you can do this drag-and-drop method to your blog as well, to your WordPress blog. So, before we introduce the post builder, you have to drag-and-drop from CurationSoft to your WordPress html or text editor. You — the content, and then you actually have to type off your commentaries within your WordPress editor. Now you can actually put together the entire post inside CurationSoft and then you can put your blog details, you username and password, etcetera. And then, you can auto-post it or auto-publish it if you want. but you can still do this manually. It’s really up to you how you want to do it.
Mike: So, it’s pretty much a way of doing curated content that’s gonna save you quite a bit of time and just make it a lot more, a lot easier just to — like you said, drag-and-drop.
Peter: It’s very, very easy to use. It really is just, you know, you type in the keyword, the search result comes up, you go through the searches all, you drag what you like and then you go on, you drag the next one, you go to the next content source and it’s all done. You can put together one in a matter of like, even if you write a commentaries, in about 10-15 minutes. And you’re ready to go. Either do this manually or you can do it like auto-publishing and then you can schedule post to go live immediately on your site, or the next day or whenever you wanna do it.
Mike: Well, cool Peter. Thank you. I just wanna say thank you very much for taking time out. I know you’re busy during this launch. You got a special promotion going on right now. I think it’s 50% off for CurationSoft. We’ll have a link to that in the show notes below in the mikefrommaine.com. Is there anything else that we didn’t touch on today that you like to mention before wrap it up?
Peter: I’m glad that I actually had the chance to explain it. It’s a really amazing software. I’m a little biased but the honor really goes to my partners, my former partners Jack Humphrey and Brandon Hall. Brandon put in an awful lot of time coding this. We started out this whole content curation software thing back in 2007. Back in then, it was called utility poster and it was only running on a PC. And the core is the same software what we are using now but back then, it was drag-and-drop. We had another piece of software but we call it the video utility poster and then we merged it too. And that’s when we had like Google Blogs, Youtube and Twitter. And then, later down the track, we actually hired a team and they moved the entire code base over to **** (23:13), so you can actually run the software on a Mac and a PC at the same time as well. And then, we started adding more functionality to it and a nice better, much nicer user interface and more sources. So now, the user interface is, in my opinion, is very, very easy to use. We have 9 sources now, content sources. We are going to add a couple of more but I don’t really want to talk about right now. But um — you can also add speed as well. So that makes it almost unlimited content when you can curate. And at this stage, you can auto-publish WordPress. We are going to add blogger, probably Joomla!, later than the track for auto-publishing. But manually, you can drag it to any html editor. We also have our integrated browser which is a very interesting thing. A lot of people asked about, when you see the searches on the lefthand side, you can actually go — in the old days, you couldn’t go into it quickly and then check what the entire article was about. So, what you have to do, you have to copy and paste the link, copy the link and actually paste it into your own browser, intro Firefox or whatever. But now when you double click the actual title link of that article, it opens up the – our integrated browser and it’s another pop up window on top of CurationSoft. And then you can read the entire article in there and now, there is another nice functionality that you can highlight certain parts of that article and drag it over in to your editor. So you can adjust, cite the title on the first paragraph, but you can actually cite certain pieces of that article or if you want the entire thing but it’s not — I wouldn’t recommend that.
Mike: Ir definitely sounds like a piece of software that you’re just not gonna create and sell it and then say bye-bye if there is a problem with it, you’re out of luck. It sounds like — it sounds like it’s your baby and you take continued good care of it.
Peter: Yeah. Well, it’s been around for well, 6 years now. So, it’s been tested. I mean, there are always some new things coming out. You know, we have to debug it and you know, we got a lot of great ideas from our users. Most of the features in there, it came from users.
Mike: Cool. Great, Peter. Well, thank you again. I really appreciate it.
Peter: Thank you so much.
Mike: I hope you enjoyed the interview with Peter. If you’re interested in checking out his CurationSoft software, you can go to mikefrommaine.com/curationsoft and check that out. There are videos on the sales page showing you much more in depth about what we talked today and what you saw. It’s gonna be much more, of course, than what I showed you at the beginning of the interview. Thank you for watching and I will see you all tomorrow.
