Robin Good's insight:


If you are looking for some good inspiring examples of how content and news curation can be put to good use, Bob Geller has published this past spring a useful article reviewing five different content curation approaches
that are very successful.

The five sites reviewed in this article "have all been tremendously successful in leveraging third party content, optimizing it, adding value, and building audience. They range from the famous to the obscure. There are some common threads, yet each has a different formula."


Useful. Resourceful. Good examples. 7/10

Differences Between Theory of Constraints and Six Sigma

Differences Between Theory of Constraints and Six Sigma | #Communication | Scoop.it
The theory of constraints is based on the idea that to improve a system or process one must find and address the one most limiting aspect of the system. While that may be understandable, getting from theory to application is not intuitively obvious.

Michael Britt's comment, April 16, 9:11 AM
Here's one thing that I think is not addressed well in this video or indeed on other resources that address curation: the Explain part of her FACETS acronym. I agree that ideally the curator should explain why any particular item of the collection is included in the curation, but also I think it's important to explain how one item relates to another. I don't see how this can be done with any of the curation tools I have seen. How can the curator effectively explain to the visitor what the relationship is between different items in the collection in a way that's easy for the visitor to follow? Right now it seems to me that the curator would have to say in his/her notes, "This item is similar to the one I added to the collection back in January....take a look at...go back to..." etc. That's awkward and clumsy. Any solutions to this?
