Beth Kanter's insight:

Just noticed the new interface and while changing a tool that you are very used to can be a little annoying,  I'm liking what I see.  I especially like the option to add your own insight vs lazy rescooping.  I also like that these insights appear as comments under the scoop, I think.   So, the design is encouraging deeper engagement .. let's see.

@Janet, Beth and mirmilla : glad you liked this! Special thanks to Beth as this feature is actually the result of a discussion thread we had on months ago about sources & ethics of curation. Don't know if you remember it Beth but we did! ;-)

What a difference this makes. I always read the articles before I scoop them. Now I'll be able to add my insights, which I hope will bring more meaning to my growing community. So nice to know your discussions added this feature to the platform.

Never heard of it - must be worth sharing :)

Robin Good's insight:Introducing content curation to someone who doesn't know anything about it is not always an easy task. There are so many different articles, opinions, definitions and recommendations about content curation that it is quite difficult for someone just getting familiar with the topic, to easily find out where to start and what to trust. To help out anyone needing to support the explanation of content curation to others, here are five comprehensive resource collections I have put together over the course of the last year. 1) Content Curation - Definitions a collection of the best and most useful definitions of what content curation is 2) Content Curation - What is it? Video Intros 30+ short video clips that introduce the need, practice and purpose of content curation 3) Content Curation Visualized 110+ infographics, visuals, illustrations and diagrams explaining what content curation is 4) Content Curation Tools Directory - Tools Directory 100+ of the best content curation tools organized in a directory for immediate access 5) Content Curation Tools Supermap - Tools Collection 600+ content curation, discovery, filtering and publishing tools organized by categories for doing content curation All free to use and share.

If you are doing content curation, you are also probably doing some content creation, building content out of aggregated pieces.    So if content curation is like collecting and organizating your legos,  there is also a part to make sense of the collection - build something out of the smaller pieces.   For example, a presentation or article or blog post.

So, you need a method or to organize a part of your collection or smaller collection to prep this content.    This is an "idea dashboard" -- Evernote is a great for this if you a rext person and using curation to write.  There are also visual ways to organized too.

Introduction to Curating and Why Important

Good introduction to the concept of curating content - framing listening. Use it to become informed in your field and you credit your sources - and build relationships.

So much new stuff... but presented in a way that I can wrap my brain around it... thanks so much.
