Scoop.it Pros: Laura Brown on curation and the display of information

Scoop.it Pros: Laura Brown on curation and the display of information | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it
Being a content curator is all about displaying information. We don't create the content, we display it. We share it - and people read it. But, first you have to display it. There are several skills involved in displaying content.

A 1945 Essay on Information Overload, “Curation,” and Open-Access Science

A 1945 Essay on Information Overload, “Curation,” and Open-Access Science | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it
"From www.brainpickings.org - November 27, 1:04 PM
There is a new profession of trail blazers, those who find delight in the task of establishing useful trails through the enormous mass of the common record."

 

More from article: "Marveling at the rapid rate of technological progress, which has made possible the increasingly cheap production of increasingly reliable machines, Bush makes an enormously important — and timely — point about the difference between merely compressing information to store it efficiently and actually making use of it in the way of gleaning knowledge. (This, bear in mind, despite the fact that 90% of data in the world today was created in the last two years.)" from source: http://www.brainpickings.org/

 

NOTE: We often overlook important writings such as this one when we cite it for one factors. This is an example of a timeless piece of writing and thought that keeps on being relevant to our advances in information and the technology we use to collect and disseminate it.

Mind boggling to think what that the overload of content he speaks of is now created in a single day, every day.

The Best Tools for Content Curation - Digital Inspiration

The Best Tools for Content Curation - Digital Inspiration | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

The author of this piece is Amit Agarwal is a personal technology columnist and founder of Digital Inspiration, one of the most widely read how-to blogs in the world

 

Good information here........

 

 

Intro:

 

A content curation tool lets you pull videos, images, presentations, tweets, blog posts and other web content into a bundle which you can then easily embed and share on the web.

 

Let’s say your team has just launched a new product at some conference and they have asked you to collate all the conversations and buzz happening around that product on various websites, blogs and social sites.

 

You have to act fast because the stuff that gets shared on the real-time web often gets buried almost as quickly.

 

So how should you go about collecting stuff around the Internet? Should you just save everything that’s being said to your browser bookmarks? Or maybe put all the web clippings in an Excel sheet as that would be easy to share? Or how about capturing screenshot images of the chatter?

 

 

There are umpteen ways to do this but what you should really look at is a dedicated content curation tool that is designed to capture web content with minimal effort.

To Be An Effective Curator You Need To Be an Information DJ

To Be An Effective Curator You Need To Be an Information DJ | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it


Robin Good: In analyzing what is going on in the brain when a potentially viral idea is intercepted, Matthew Lieberman (who designed the study with Emily Falk at UCLA) discovered something that confirms how important it is that an effective curator be "in tune" with his own audience. 

 

Great curation is not just about "spinning" the newest and coolest, but to precisely cater to the specific audience interests, expectations and preferences.

 

Interesting, fascinating story. Truthful. Insightful. 8/10

Why Human Filters are the Future of the Web

Why Human Filters are the Future of the Web | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

Karyn Campbell wrote this piece for Sparksheet - Great Observations and so true!

 

Intro:

 

"Before news aggregators, content curators, and Google’s omnipotent algorithm, the world’s information was sorted by real human beings."

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

It comes down to trust

 

The web has offered us incredible options for how we buy products, talk to our friends, or experience media. Remember that adage “quality over quantity”? We can take that phrase literally online – quantity won’t go away; quality will just sit atop.

 

Sometimes we want someone to tell us, consistently, what’s true and what’s good. No wonder YouTube just relaunched its music page, enlisting writers for Vice, Spin and other major vloggers to curate its featured content.

 

**As Steve Jobs more radically put it, “It’s not the consumers’ job to know what they want.”

 

It comes down to trust. Because we are all so well trained in the art of branding, arguably at the expense of crafting things worthy of distribution,

 

**it becomes hard to trust the advice of a Wild West web.

 

Still, we’ll continue to take the word of our favourite industry insider, celebrity or uncle.

 

**Likewise, the smartest companies in this space will calibrate expertise with automation, math with emotion.

 

**Whether she’s a kid writing code or a poet in-the-making, look for the next generation Steve Jobs to carry on building, hiring, and perfecting these filters.

 

Absolutely!
