YouTube's Curation Vision - The Impact.ForbesNow that YouTube has revealed that Curation is core to their strategy of contextualizing video content, and Curators will be paid, leaders in the Fair Use and Remix community are taking notice.
It’s a broad perspective on curation.
Aufderheide, believes that content curators deserve to be acknowledge this new content ecosystem. She states that: “curators are in the same class of creative actors as editors and museum/gallery curators. They know a field of production, they exercise standards, they use that knowledge and judgment to showcase work in new contexts that add meaning”.
Curators create through selection and so they contribute “the most participatory and productive era of cultural expression in the history of the world”.
