Curation vs. Blogging: The Difference Is In The Focus

Curation vs. Blogging: The Difference Is In The Focus | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If curation is all about finding and sharing great content, what's the difference with what so many bloggers have been doing until now?

The difference, according to Deanna Dahlsad at Kitsch-Slapped, is in the focus. While bloggers often cover just about anything that intercepts their online wanderings, curators are characterized by a strong focus on a specific topic.  

 

Here is a key passage from her article: "Many bloggers spend their time selecting what they consider the best of what other people have created on the web and post it at their own sites, just like a magazine or newspaper.

 

Or they provide a mix of this along with writing or otherwise creating their own content. Not to split hairs, but curation involves less creation and more searching and sifting; curation’s more a matter of focused filtering than it is writing.

 

Because content curation is expected to be based on such focused filtering, it begins far more based on topic selection.

 

This is much different from blogging, where bloggers are often advised to “just begin” and let their voice and interests accumulate over time to eventually reveal a primary theme.

 

...

 

Some collectors just collect what they like as they stumble into it. …Sometimes, collectors just keep piling up stuff, no matter what it is. Even if this isn’t hoarding, it’s not-so-much of a purposeful pursuit.

 

But professional curators, those who manage collections for museums or other organizations, and serious collectors, they maintain a specific focus.

 

And rather than stumbling into items, they continually seek for specific items.

 

The definition dictates the curation — and everything from funding to their continued employment is based on how well their collection meets the collection’s definition.

 

While blogging success may be thought of in many different ways, the success of content curation lies in how well you define, search/research, and stick to your subject."

 

Rightful. 8/10

"Constructing Worlds" is the first major exhibition in London exploring the relationship between architecture and photography and as Jane Alison, Head of Visual Arts at the Barbican, remarks, "it is a must see for anyone interested in how we understand architecture and equally the dramatic shifts in society in the post-war period."

Transvision 2014, the Technoprogressive Declaration, & the ISF

Transvision 2014, the Technoprogressive Declaration, & the ISF | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it
I have just returned from attending the Transvision 2014 (TV14) conference in Paris, co-hosted by AFT (L’Association Française Transhumaniste) Technoprog!, fiXience, & Traces (ESPCI ParisTech), at the Espace des Sciences Pierre-Gilles de Gennes. I found this to be a particularly successful, interesting, and invigorating conference. The meeting’s theme was “Transhumanism Faces the Social Question”, which is of course a collision of worlds very much at the heart of the Social Futurist worldview.

 Self-awareness is the most crucial developmental breakthrough for accelerating personal leadership growth and authenticity.  Learning to pause to build self-awareness is an evolving process critical to leader success. 

donhornsby's curator insight, March 19, 2014 8:03 AM

(From the article): 

  It is extremely valuable to know ourselves in order to leverage our potentialities:
 

We need to know our strengths to assert them in the appropriate circumstances;We need to know our vulnerabilities, weaknesses, and distressing emotions, to check them and to prevent asserting them inappropriately and in non-value creating ways;When we are not self-aware, people around us have a better sense of our strengths and weaknesses than we do, and we lose credibility;When we are self-aware, we are more in touch with reality; people trust and respect us more.
