Joseph Bachana, president of DPCI, gives his take on curating content. Excerpt:
"It also occurs to me as I spend far more time on twitter, socialmedian, digg and other social-media sites that 'mavens' -- those we follow who are the rockstars of these platforms -- are essentially curating content for us all. We would need an endless number of lifetimes to read all the content available to us on the Web, even with the available filtering technologies that search engines offer us.
However, the social-media rockstar (whats a good term for those people? they're not making news so much as filtering it and presenting it back to the rest of us) are filtering out the content -- presenting important content, sorting the relevant from the meaningless or inaccurate and debunking the latter."
