Content Curation Is the New Community Builder

Great post written by Eric Brown for Social Media Explorer - This is what caught my attention:

 

Curation — the act of human editors adding their work to the machines that gather, organize and filter content.

 

“Curation comes up when search stops working,” says author and NYU Professor Clay Shirky. But it’s more than a human-powered filter.

 

“Curation comes up when people realize that it isn’t just about information seeking, it’s also about synchronizing a community.”

 

Part of the reason that human curation is so critical is simply the vast number of people who are now making and sharing media.

 

“Everyone is a media outlet”, says Shirky. “The point of everyone being a media outlet is really not at all complicated. It just means that we can all put things out in the public view.

Welcome To The New Age Of Curation

"Simon Careless wrote this post, he is an editor, publisher, oversees the Game Developers Conference shows, Gamasutra and Game Developer magazine. He has a lot to say about the massive overload of content we're all experiencing. I like his observations and we'll be hearing more from him in the near future on this subject.

 

What really caught my attention was a comment from one of his readers, Sarah Brin:"

comment 1:

"Curation isn’t strictly about taste-making either–a huge part of it is becoming an interlocutor, someone who facilitates a discussion around content, as opposed to presenting content with a qualitative (and subjective) evaluation. In that regard, the democratization of curatorial tools (tumblr, twitter, all the ways we share content) is really exciting! It might usher in a new era wherein culture becomes more participatory…or it might not."

 

 

... for me (Heiko Idensen) the five reasons for leaving the "Age of creation" are important & coming again to the problem of the FILTERS:
"So what’s the fix? You need a filter. And I strongly believe that while algorithmical filters work, you need people to tell you about things you wouldn’t find that way. When I look at book suggestions on Amazon, or artist radio on Last.fm, they’re logical and basically useful - but they’re not a concatenated, cool-hunted melange that reaches out and touches your heart.

Some form of this filtration has been in shape for decades, largely in print form, of course. ..."
 

"What are your thoughts about this?" (asked janlgordon)
