It is very interesting to note new variety of subjects and information coming at the speed of light. It is how to grab all this information is what matters most.

Is Content Curation the New Community Builder?

Is Content Curation the New Community Builder? | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Eric Brown for social media explorer.


I selected this article because it reaffirms what many of us already know but it's still good to see this in writing: Content curation and Media Curation (a mix of  machine aggregation and Human Curation) are starting to pick up steam.


Here are some highlights:


Curation comes up when search stops working,” says author and NYU Professor Clay Shirky. But it’s more than a human-powered filter.


**“Curation comes up when people realize that it isn’t just about information seeking, it’s also about synchronizing a community.”


The author says and I agree with him:



**"The value will be in the expertise of the curator, people will not read junk, and the best of the best curators will create digital domination with vibrant communities".


There is also a great quote from Fred Wilson's AVB blog in which he details what he would do if he were starting the Village Voice now:


**I would not print anything. I would not hire a ton of writers. I would build a website and a mobile app (or two or three). I would hire a Publisher and a few salespeople.


**I would hire an editor and a few journalists. And then I’d go out and find every blog, twitter, facebook, flickr, youtube, and other social media feed out there that is related to downtown NYC


**and I would pull it all into an aggregation system where my editor and journalists could cull through the posts coming in, curate them, and then publish them
