Andrew Wilson reminds us about the importance of being aware of what we do when we curate. Curation is legally possible because it can fit into the concept of “Fair Use”.

What Curation Is About: Drew Meyers Introduces Curation to Real Estate People

What Curation Is About: Drew Meyers Introduces Curation to Real Estate People | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: You may not like this site, its focus (on real estate) or its writing style, but to me Drew Meyers does hit the nail right on the head, in introducing and explaining content curation, to a likely audience of real-estate agents.

 

He writes: "At the end of the day, the most important thing to remember about curation is that it’s not about you.

 

...It is about delivering GREAT content consistently over and extended period of time.

 

Curation is about building long term credibility, establishing real relationships, and earning your place as your audience’s go-to source for anything related to real estate."

 

And that is indeed a great synthesis of what curation really is. But he adds more to make sure you are 100% with us and he excels at doing so:

 

"FACT n.1) Everyone is now a publisher.

 

FACT n.2) Many SUCK at creating quality content.

 

FACT n.3) There is too much, for lack of a better word, shit on the web as a result.

 

FACT n.4): I don’t have time to filter through the shit myself and find the valuable/ insightful/interesting content.

 

FACT n.5): I value people who curate content in very specific niches for me.

 

FACT n.6): The people that curate content in areas I’m interested in earn my trust over time, and are much more likely to earn my business if I need goods/services they provide."

 

Bravo Drew. 

 

Good read. 8/10

The Curator's Guide to the Galaxy - Atlantic Mobile | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

The Atlantic has an article explaining Maria Papova’s Curator’s code. The explanation for this need of finding new ways for a better and standardized system of attribution is given in a simple way: the Internet is young and it has grown up organically.
Meanwhile let’s all make an effort to show clearly what we’re doing: are we sharing or creating (or doing both openly)?

Credit and Attribution Are Fantastic Untapped Resources for Discovery, Not Duties: Maria Popova and The Curator's Code

Credit and Attribution Are Fantastic Untapped Resources for Discovery, Not Duties: Maria Popova and The Curator's Code | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Maria Popova has just launched a classy and laudable initiative, focused on increasing awareness and in highlighting the importance of honoring always where or via who you have got to a certain article, report, video or image.

 

 

 

Credit and attribution are not just a "formal" way to comply with rules, laws and authors but an incredibly powerful emebddable mechanism to augment findability, discovery, sinergy and collaboration among human being interested in the same topic.

 

She writes: "In an age of information overload, information discovery — the service of bringing to the public’s attention that which is interesting, meaningful, important, and otherwise worthy of our time and thought — is a form of creative and intellectual labor, and one of increasing importance and urgency.

 

A form of authorship, if you will.

 

Yet we don’t have a standardized system for honoring discovery the way we honor other forms of authorship and other modalities of creative and intellectual investment, from literary citations to Creative Commons image rights."

 

For this purpose Curator's Code was created.

 

Curator's Code is first of all "a movement to honor and standardize attribution of discovery across the web" as well as a web site where you can learn about the two key types of attribution that we should be using:

a) Via - which indicates a link of direct discovery

b) Hat tip - Indicates a link of indirect discovery, story lead, or inspiration.

 

Each one has now a peculiar characterizing icon that Curator's Code suggests to integrate in your news and content publication policies. 

 

Additionally and to make it easy for anyone to integrate these new attribution icons in their work, Curator's Code has created a free bokkmarklet which makes using proper attribution a matter of one clic.

 

Hat tip to Maria Popova and Curator's Code for launching this initiative. 

 

Whether or not you will sign Curator's Code pledge, become an official web site supporting it, or adopt its bookmarklet instantly is not as important as the key idea behind it: by providing credit and attribution to pieces of content you find elsewhere, you not only honestly reward who has spent time to create that content, but you significantly boost the opportunity for thousands of others to connect, link up to, discover and make greater sense of their search for meaning.

Beth Kanter's comment, March 11, 2012 1:01 PM
Thanks Robin for sharing and curating this article with your summary. I discovered it via Barbara Bray's collection where she had re scooped your scoop -- [and if following the curator's code added a via]. I came over here to rescoop (with a via!) because you are the original source and one of the links was broken (you corrected it and added an update) thus reminding me the importance of going to the original source. Here on scoop.it you can just follow the trail of the rescoop icon.

I am disappointed that the bookmarklet doesn't work together with the scoop.it one - but it would be great to have it integrated. Now to figure out how to rescoop it with the characters.
Robin Good's comment, March 11, 2012 1:12 PM
Hi Beth, thanks for your kind feedback. I was just out today for a video interview with Nancy White here in Rome, and she mentioned you as someone she likes for your ability to curate and make sense of things.

Re the integration of the curators' code icons, I have received feedback from Guillaume De Cugies of Scoop.it that he has been exchanging with Maria Popova and that he is looking with her for a way to integrate the two.

For now you can simply install the Curators' Code bookmarklet and use the "via"<a href="http://www.curatorscode.org" target="_blank" style="font-family:sans-serif;text-decoration:none" >&#x1525;</a> or hat tip <a href="http://www.curatorscode.org" target="_blank" style="font-family:sans-serif;text-decoration:none" >&#x21ac;</a> icons by copying and pasting their code into your scoops manually. The problem, at least for me is, that the scoop.it editing window is in the same position where the Curators' Code bookmarklet is and therefore I can't see both at the same time.

In any case I think it would be trivial for Scoop.it or any other tool to integrate such buttons directly into their system without having us to use two different tools for one task.
Karen Dietz's comment, March 11, 2012 9:36 PM
Many thanks Robin for the help! Somehow I missed the article -- computer fatigue probably :) I read it earlier today and look forward to using the codes. I'm thrilled to hear that scoop.it is looking into integrating them into the platform. Thanks for keeping us updated on this new, and important twist, for curating. Cheers -- Karen
