Angela Dunn has written a great piece on one of my favorite topics, curation - it was the lead post on our launh of Curatti last night.
What makes a good curator?
"You need to have the eye of an editor, a sense of taste like a chef, and your own unique Point of View. It is this Point of View – your taste – that can lead to authority and influence".
Curators who are driven by passion and purpose will be very important to the business community in their chosen niche - it's crucial that we preserve this information for the future. That is why the future of curation is definitely evergreen.
Here are some highlights that caught my attention:
The amount of content is growing exponentially, but our time is limited. Curators are our filters for information overload – the editors of chaos.
The slew of content curation tools that emerged gave way to algorithms. Can a machine have a Point of View? Machines can influence your Point of View. The danger is they can also create a filter bubble.
It is human insight coupled with machine results that can define the very best information edited from a trusted curator’s Point of View.
Evergreen posts, such as “Curating Content for Thought Leadership”,, written by Angela in 2010 are important in that they stand the test of time. All good blogs need some such articles.
The above, along with all of Angela's posts on the now defunct Postereus, have evergreen links due to a new tool for archiving the web – Permamarks.

Elias Morling estime que les curateurs sont comme les "dumpster divers", ces militants qui fouillent les poubelles. Et ils les appelle les "vrais influenceurs" car :
1. Les curateurs représentent un nouveau type de leadership tribal bottom up et peer-to-peer.
2. En tant que membres d'une tribu, les curateurs seront toujours plus "natives" que n'importe qui parlant de l'extérieur.
3. Au sein de la tribu, ils sont appréciés non seulement pour leurs compétences, mais aussi parce qu'ils entretiennent et développent leur propre culture.

Excellent article and video. Looking at the wonderful world of the internet and curation. The idea of curation of online content has become more and more inportant with the exponential growth of content on the world wide web. Being able to organise and manage all of the content is important.
Curation is about making good choices about what you share and putting it into a context for themselves and others. Being enthusiastic and thoughtful about what you choose is a way of showing what you are finding and sharing is signficant and worthwhile.
Finding the most interesting and valuable things and sharing that is the key. What you want and what you are interested in is important but you also need to consider your audience.
