Creating more grounded transformative work is done by formulating a collective research process that builds shared capacity. If done well, an emerging social system moves itself (self adaptive) into momentous collaborative action.
"How do the skills of a curator apply in an organizational context? More than ever before, as we know. In globally distributed and networked organizations engaged in doing complex work, where exception handling is likely to be the norm, it is crucial for information flow to be transparent and to have folks who can spot the patterns, connect the dots and provide that key insight which keep an organization on the cutting edge. They may or may not be officially conferred the title of curators. But the need is irrefutable. Probably the biggest challenge facing organizations today is not the lack of data creation, but the lack of someone who can connect all the floating dots—inside and outside the organization—that lead to meaningful decisions. While some aspects can be automated—using analytics—it still requires a human curator to recognize patterns and present the output.
Who are likely to be playing the role of key curators in an organization? Most likely to be the community managers! With organizations going the social business route and investing in a social platform, community managers will soon become an essential role. And community managers are the best placed to play the role of curators as well. One insight I gleaned from this post by Bertrand Duperrin: Are curators the missing thing in enterprise 2.0 approaches? Curators are focused on information flows without thinking they’re leading or managing any community. From which I draw the inference that curators need not be community managers, but community managers should ideally have curation skills or work closely with curators to build a successful community.
As Clay Shirky said here: Curation comes up when search stops working…[and] when people realize that it isn't just about information seeking, it's also about synchronizing a community."

Surfing videos online is a challenge. Most of the videos we watch are short clips embedded on other sites, or links posted on Facebook and Twitter. Video sites do what they can to show us "related" content, but it's rarely enough to hold our attention for more than another click or two.
Showyou solves those problems in an impressive way. If you sign in to it with your Facebook or Twitter account, it will fetch all the videos posted by your friends and gather them in a single place. (You can also connect your accounts on YouTube, Vimeo, Tumblr and other networks.)
These connections are great for two reasons: One, they spare you from having to chase down videos across multiple sites; and two, you're more likely to care about videos shared by people you know.
Where YouTube encourages you to follow content creators, who tend to be hit-or-miss, ShowYou wants you to follow content curators.
The demand for the viral clips that have fueled YouTube's rise is stronger than ever. If content is still king when it comes to video, user experience is a close second. ShowYou, with its innovative approach to delivering entertainment, is worth watching.
