This is more than an infographic. The article talks about Robin's Good's feelings about the new trend of curation.
What is good curation versus bad curation? The image is a remix of a presentation entitled ”Link Building by Imitation” and authored by link building expert Ross Hudgens — and explains the skill set pretty well.
Beth Kanter interviewed Robin Good a few days ago, for the entire interview with Beth and Robin please click here: [http://bit.ly/y3bmPo]
Robin, I really enjoyed listening to you, I know this is aimed at non-profits but your insights, tips and suggestions are something we can all use.
Here are a few things that caught my attention:
**BEFORE you get on the web, decide how much time you're going to spend on there, otherwise it could become addictive, and this can happen if you're not careful (hmmm how many of you can relate to this?)
**Know who your audience is, pick a very specific topic,
**be as narrow as you can, find great pieces, pull out what you think would be relevant for them (being too broad doesn't help filter out the noise for these people, it adds to it)
I'm going to let you get right to the interview and let Robin tell you more:-)

Robin Good: Meetingl is a free video conferencing tool that allows you to meet, talk and chat with up to eight people without having to download, install or configure any software.
Fully browser-based Meetingl works across PCs, Macs and mobile devices, and it is as simple to use as it gets. To start a session you simply click on "New Room" and instantly you are placed in a uniquely numbered room where you can invite your guests. You can share the URL of the meeting room by clicking on the "room number" that will appear on the lower left part of your interface.
Content curation will play a major role both in the way we teach and in the way we educate ourselves on any topic. When and where it will be adopted, it will deeply affect many key aspects of the educational ecosystem.
Beth Kanter celebrates my birthday by publishing this informative and well curated article for new content curators.
Beth summarizes key principles, her own suggested approach and some of the tools she recommends to use.
An enjoyable and informative read. Recommended.
P.S.: The link "explosion of tools" should realy link somewhere else in my humble opinion. Here is an updated map of all the content curation and newsmastering tools out there: http://www.mindmeister.com/55395228 ;
