What Is Curation and Why It's So Relevant? [Video]

Robin Good: A great video animation introducing some of the key ideas, dreams and concepts behind content curation.


From the video: "One of the most beautiful things about the Internet is this sort of radical discovery, where you start in a place that you are familiar with, that you trust, and then you drill down and down and chase the white rabbit and then you end up in some wonderland you didn't know existed.


The clip includes thoughts from some unique curators, picked and selected by Percolate, the company sponsoring this video. 


Inspiring. Insightful. 8/10

Are Curators Social?

Are Curators Social? | All Things Curation |


I am loving!  The act of curating forces me to read a lot (I don’t really need to be forced but now I have an excuse ;)) while scanning for those articles that may be a gem among the vast about of literature out there. It is like having a metal detector on the beach.


In this community, if I see an article I like I will quickly add it to my collection. We all do that, right? We rescoop. As I reflect on that, I am wondering how social is that?

I have seen a few articles sent to our community for responses- It is great to see the collective mind at work. With all the reading we do, the knowledge base here is enormous. What an asset! However at the end of the day, do we need to be social , here is this community or else where?


I thought I would throw this out there and see what comes back? So I wait for the boomerang hoping it doesn’t hit me at the back of my head!


What say you?


May I aslo take this opportunity to wish you a Happy Holiday Season and All the best for 2012.
