I was introduced to Storify at SXSW, where it's utility was apparent: it's a simple, compelling way to capture an event, such as an SXSW panel where the tweets & hashtags are flying, through what people share on the social web. I could easily document a panel through real-time tweets, photos, and YouTube videos.
Bonus: use Storify's APIs to create your own story templates: dev.storify.com

Informative Nature piece about Erez Lieberman Aiden, who has done some great research in mathematical biology/molecular biology (with Eric Lander & Martin Nowak). He's probably best known for his role in the field of culturomics. Smart, creative and humble (for proof of the last, take a look at the comments).
It looks like this is the territory of the recently launched visualize.me (vizualize.me/vfz0v) -- which allows you to generate an infographic resume with the click of a button.
