Samsung curated live from the social web at SXSW. Instead of just sponsoring a booth or putting up some giant signs, they worked with JESS3 to create something Samsung called the media wall. They curated the best of the best content [twitter, Flickr, SlideShare, check-ins, conference sessions, etc.] and posted it up on a giant wall. Location expert Aaron Strout talked with Esteban Contreras from Samsung about the curation.

If you're looking for a way to engage your fans and incorporate Twitter into the gameday experience, then really do it. Don't utilize social media just to be hip or offer customer service when there are so many other ways it could offer value to your most passionate fans.
An interesting aspect of the culture of sharing on social networks is that of content curation. This is the act of pointing your followers to content from other people. If you do online book or music reviews, you're curating content. When you blog about other people’s work you're curating content.
Curation of mainstream media coverage, and back channel tweets from this annual week-long event in New York City that concluded on Friday, Feb.11, 2011. This is not intended to be inclusive but offers a taste of some of the event and some of the smaller panels.
Live-blogging and live-tweeting have added a new dimension to the conference experience. Real-time curation of those efforts may well be the next step in increasing the value of the knowledge speakers and panels share.
It has occurred to me that employees can create amazing curated stories. To begin with, they can collect new and archived information about their areas of subject matter expertise. The value of these curated “stories” comes from applying their judgment to a collection of content that filters through the clutter.
