Welcome to the 9/11 Curation for Memorial Channel

Today, we are glad to announce the launch of our 9/11 Curation for Memorial Channel. This day marks the tenth anniversary of the shocking 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City. We have reached an important milestone.

During the past decade, people talked, debated, and thought about the changes the world is experiencing. These conversations brought tons of articles, photos, videos, presentations, tweets, and other types of contents on the Web.

Social network websites are being used as gathering places for public memorial of 9/11. People are coming together to pay tribute to the victims, share stories, and bear witness to the tragedy on these sites.

So, what’s the most convenient way to curate these fragmented materials? Can we weave a 9/11 Web together?

We believe that collective social content curating efforts will build a “good web” where contents are better interconnected, easier to find, to share and to use. And we are excited BagTheWeb is part of this powerful trend.

The 9/11Curation for Memorial Channel aims to provide you with an easy way to collect, preserve, present, and share the history of September 11, 2011 and its aftermath. You can use “bags” to curate 9/11 related web contents from your personal angle, and then submit your bags to the channel.
