Seth Dixon's curator insight, December 5, 2013 8:50 AM

This is one of the reasons why I think online curation platforms like scoop.it are increasingly important.  And here the best quote from the article: "The problem is, you can look at the internet as a collection of random odds and ends that it is your job to curate—some of these things may be 'truer' than others, but what’s really important is whether you love or hate them enough to post them to the social website of your choice."  So  keep curating my friends.

What about our area and others that can never expect a snow day? Maybe we could have optional "virtual" days to help ease school overcrowding or traffic snarls. We could seriously consider having virtual days for air quality warning days.
