THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CONTENT & CURATION- CURATION CONNECTS PEOPLE TO KNOWLEDGE.

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CONTENT & CURATION- CURATION CONNECTS PEOPLE TO KNOWLEDGE. | All Things Curation | Scoop.it
"Curation provides context for content (among other things), and in return the quality of the content gives value and meaning to curation, while providing the curator with perceived credibility through the act of transparency.

Highly recommended.

Who Are Today’s Curators? And Where The Hell Are The Rest Of Them?!! | All Things Curation | Scoop.it

Have a doubt the need for curation goes way beyond social media freaks? Here's a cry out from Ted Hope, an independant film producer, for value-adding, leading-forward curation.

 

This is a great read showing exactly what should be expected from curators, not just in the film industry or the art world but more broadly.

In this Age Of SuperAbundance We Need Trusted Filters. Who Are Today’s Curators? | All Things Curation | Scoop.it

In this Age Of SuperAbundance, one of the things we need more than anything is trusted filters. How do we prioritize what to watch? How to discover new work? How do we escape our echo chambers to be reminded of how expansive our taste really is?

The volume of information available freely to consumers is mind-boggling. But even factoring in ease of access — no more sifting through card catalogs or microfiche in dark libraries — attention remains scarce. The task of sorting the useless to find the useful is a critical challenge.

 

Search was supposed to solve this problem and allow people to efficiently uncover the information they need. Google's algorithms have been structured to consider the information available and give us a ranking based on "quality" or "usefulness."
