I am struck by Steven Johnson remix quote, "Chance favors the connected mind." And I admire Popova's attempt to corral the idea of 'curation' into a manifesto.
Again, the humble bookmarklet is proving to be the catalyst for bringing together the bone, muscle, and sinew of the Internet in ways that continually surprise me. I am not sure whether there needs to be a distinction between the attribution of direct and indirect discovery for the user of the link. How much does knowing the connection to the original curator was either of these ? I am sure there is a good answer to this, but I am not sure what it is.
Any way you look at it, the 'actionable code of ethics' that this represents is as handy as a pocket knife in a mailroom.

One of the important elements of the tripartite model of content curation is sharing. It assumes the value which is determined by the purpose and the objectives set by the topic curator(s). Sharing may, for example, follow a marketing strategy or may be moved by the spontaneity of the curator (or the user/follower). With regard to Personal Knowledge Management (PKM), Harold Jarche highlights a significant aspect to guide sharing: discernment, i.e., when sharing you must be aware of the following aspects: when, with whom and how. Sharing can be done openly, through a blog, or it can be targeted to a particular community or network. Like PKM, when you are curating, a discerning sharing also contributes to build trust. If a curator sets himself as a reliable node for a community or network, his intervention will have a greater value and impact.
