Robin Good: A great video animation introducing some of the key ideas, dreams and concepts behind content curation.
From the video: "One of the most beautiful things about the Internet is this sort of radical discovery, where you start in a place that you are familiar with, that you trust, and then you drill down and down and chase the white rabbit and then you end up in some wonderland you didn't know existed."
The clip includes thoughts from some unique curators, picked and selected by Percolate, the company sponsoring this video.
Inspiring. Insightful. 8/10

An exclusive, live webinar from Social Media Today
October 4th at 12pm EST / 9am PST
Where journalists used to be the trusted agents for reporting on the ground and fact-checking stories before publication, every Web user is now a potential journalist.
And as the deluge of user-generated information gathers strength, finding out what's important to people in their private and working lives becomes more and more challenging. How to sort between truth, half truth and falsehood?
Technical filtering can't (yet) match human capacity to discriminate between useful content and garbage. This is the increasingly vital role of the online curator. The discussion will examine to what extent curation is becoming integral to journalism, and whether bloggers and tweeters can adequately play the the reporting role of journalists.
We'll cover the following questions, as well as your own:
What's the difference between curation and journalism? How does factchecking work in the blogosphere? What are emerging best practices for online curators?
Can the hive mind of the Internet match the formal editorial structure of a traditional news organization when it comes to producing accurate reporting and analysis of current events?
Maggie Fox will host the webinar, her wonderful guests are Steve Rosenbaum and Tom Foremeski. (Bios on the article)
