Comment: lots of truth in the original post but curation is not only that. Proof is: that post got more readers from being curated than from its original publication. I certainly would never have discovered if it had not been curated by several people. Direct link to the post:

How to be a formidable content curator: a 17-step guide by Econsultancy | Content Curation Tools For Brands | Scoop.it

Content Curators are the New Superheros of the Web by Steven Rosenblum via Things I grab

Content Curators are the New Superheros of the Web by Steven Rosenblum via Things I grab | Content Curation Tools For Brands | Scoop.it

Comment: I probably overlooked this article by Steven Rosenbaum in Fast Company and thank Things I grag... for pointing it out again. It's hard to tell whether I already scooped it, because Scoop.it does not allow to acurately search through my own topic -- which I find a major limitation.

 

Anyway the article explains why content curation is hard, how to do it right, and why it's useful then. I agree. It also talks about attribution and the Curator Code.
