Man versus machine: in which I curate | AJCann | Scoop.it
The medium is the message and curation is the new aggregation.
I've been using paper.li for a while now, but I think that experiment may have run it's course. The machine curation is patchy, sometimes throwing up serendipitous finds but mostly making noise which pushes people away. Lack of RSS feeds, not enough social features, paper.li was a good attempt but too flawed. Contrast paper.li (and Tweeted Times) with the new kid on the block, Scoop.it (h/t Terese Bird).
