A curated introduction to content curation, with several video clips from thought leaders and a few pointers to relevant tools.
I found this on Robin Good's topic "Real Time News Curation" - it's originally from alistarcameron.com. He talks about curation and there is great information in the video from other thought leaders on the subject.
Additional curation by JanlGordon on her topic "Content Curation, Social Media and Beyond" on Scoopit below:

"collaborative intelligence" -
**Curation is evolving to "collabortive intelligence" - find those people who produce quality work, who have integrity and whom you can work with, curate a topic together, faster. All kinds of opportunities can come from this and you're making a major contribution to the community.
