Content Curation (Real Time) vs. Automation - The Value Differential

Content Curation (Real Time) vs. Automation - The Value Differential | Curation, Social Business and Beyond |

Robin Good found this wonderful piece

A short article by Jay Pinkert, but pointing to an increasingly critical issue for anyone interested in curation. The value differential.

From the article: "The essence of curation, then, is the curator’s informed and discriminating point of view and active participation.


As with most endeavors that require extra personal attention and effort, there’s strong temptation to look for shortcuts – that means you, and Summify.
