I've been experimenting with Pinterest for a few weeks, and am increasingly falling in love with it. While many consider it to be primarily the realm of gorgeous imagery, recipes and pretty consumer products, I'm finding the concept of "pinning"--the online version of scrapbooking--to be really valuable. 

In particular, one of my passions is for Energy Information Design and Pinterest has become the perfect tool for accumulating interesting approaches in one easy place. 

What's been quite amazing to me is that my board, Energy Information Design, is now #1 Google organic for that search term. (A little obscure, perhaps, but not really.)

Check it out here: Energy Circle's Pinterest Board on Energy Information Design

PS: Many thanks to Lester Shen for showing the way. All his Boards are excellent, particularly his Useful energy iPhone/iPad apps.
