Maria Popova is the mind behind Brain Pickings, a highly influential and addictive curation of the best content from the web and beyond.
Maria Popova is quite possibly the most successful digital media curator today. I'd like to think of myself as the Brainpicker for geography education, but that might be wishful thinking on my part. I think very highly of her curatorial work since she consistently finds real gems. Not always something that finds my audience, but very thoughtful material...real curating goes so far beyond simply copying and pasting or sharing online what you are reading. I appreciated this article that delves into the work habits of a great curator.
