Steve Rosenbaum: The Solution To Digital Overload Both At SXSW And Online Is Curation

Steve Rosenbaum: The Solution To Digital Overload Both At SXSW And Online Is Curation | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

This is an excerpt from the article by Steve Rosenbaum and published by Huffington Post.

 

"The idea of SXSW as a metaphor for the growth and overwhelming abundance of the web is more than apt.

No matter how you cut it, the volume of panels, talks, conversations, parties, gatherings, bands, and food trucks is hard to manage.

 

Digital abundance, in the absence of a powerful set of blinders, can be as frustrating as it is fulfilling.

And SXSW has the same puzzle.

The solution to Digital Overload at SXSW isn't to shut down the potpourri of choice any more than the solution to solving the signal to noise problem on the web is to legislate less tweeting or Facebook friending.

 

The solution is better tools, and more empowered humans. The solution to Digital Overload both in Austin and online is curation. Curators are the new superheros of the web.

And at SXSW, I'd sure have benefited from a few folks who's been willing to curate the content, and share their selections and schedules.

 

In the absence of a curatorial choice to navigate the massive offering, people default to poor planning and then a 'follow the crowd' behavior into the presentations and panels with the biggest known names. While popularity is certainly one way to find content, often the most interesting and relevant material for you isn't the panel in the biggest room, or the presenter with the biggest name.

 

Be a curator, or find one. Next year at SXSW, Steve is going to curate and publish his digital content roadmap."

Excerpt:

 

There’s so much information online just begging to be curated: news, social media, images, video, websites… the list goes on. Reading great content from my favorite blogs and websites is one of my favorite things but you have to be able to harness it so you have what you need at your fingertips.

 

Here are some highlights:

 

**Content gathering and personalized newsfeeds

Content, Curation and Community - Twitter Acquires Posterous

This piece was posted by Peter a. Prestipino for websitemagazine

 

Twitter officially announced it has acquired Posterous. As many will suggest in the coming hours, days and weeks, this may just be a "talent" acquisition, but look a little deeper and you'll find reason enough to believe that Twitter is getting ready for a very big, very social fight.

 

Twitter is about to move from providing a platform which hosts conversations alone, to one that helps users manage conversations, as well as produce and curate content. That's a better (more appealing) product for users - and investors - in my opinion.

The Explosion of Pinterest and Why You Should Read This Report

The Explosion of Pinterest and Why You Should Read This Report | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Dave Copeland for Readwriteweb. There have been many articles about Pinterest but if you do nothing else, read the white paper by Engauge and report they're referring to. It is absolutely the best one I've seen to date. (more details below)

 

The most important thing in this piece is the report, here's what you'll see:

 

A new Engauge white paper breaks down:

 

**the make-up of the average Pinterest user 

 

**shows that the end result of less reading is more of a focus on content curation than creation.

 

**The timing of that trend, combined with a stunning design when Internet users are focusing more on visual than text, has allowed Pinterest to explode in popularity.

 

This is what caught my attention - a quote from a user:

 

"When I'm looking for new trends on specific topics like fashion or birthday party themes, I now search Pinterest first -- not Google." - Karah Street

"With the amount of information that is available on the internet, it's important for teachers to filter through websites to find relevant information in a timely manner. As a blogger, I believe we "curate" the web automatically to help keep things organized and to convey information in as detailed and easy a way as possible.

 

Now, with the addition of dedicated websites, people can curate the web and save information on their own while sharing this vital information with others."

Facebook Introduces Interest Lists, 'Your Own Personal Newspaper' | Search Engine Watch

Facebook Introduces Interest Lists, 'Your Own Personal Newspaper' | Search Engine Watch | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

Excerpted from the original article:

 

"Facebook has announced the launch of Interest Lists, a new feature designed to help users curate the content of Pages and public figures in which they’re interested. The service promises to deliver the top posts from each interest group (list) in the user’s newsfeed.

 

Over the coming weeks, users will see “Add Interests” appear in the left-hand sidebar on their newsfeed. Users can also create lists from “Create List” in the “Interests” page.

 

Interest lists can help you turn Facebook into your own personalized newspaper, with special sections—or feeds—for topics that matter to you. You can find traditional news sections like Business, Sports and Style or get much more personalized.

 

Interest Lists are, of course, similar in concept to Google+ Circles, though they are limited to curating content from public figures and Pages..."

Credit and Attribution Are Fantastic Untapped Resources for Discovery, Not Duties: Maria Popova and The Curator's Code

Credit and Attribution Are Fantastic Untapped Resources for Discovery, Not Duties: Maria Popova and The Curator's Code | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Maria Popova has just launched a classy and laudable initiative, focused on increasing awareness and in highlighting the importance of honoring always where or via who you have got to a certain article, report, video or image.

 

Credit and attribution are not just a "formal" way to comply with rules, laws and authors but an incredibly powerful emebddable mechanism to augment findability, discovery, sinergy and collaboration among human being interested in the same topic.

 

She writes: "In an age of information overload, information discovery — the service of bringing to the public’s attention that which is interesting, meaningful, important, and otherwise worthy of our time and thought — is a form of creative and intellectual labor, and one of increasing importance and urgency.

 

A form of authorship, if you will.

 

Yet we don’t have a standardized system for honoring discovery the way we honor other forms of authorship and other modalities of creative and intellectual investment, from literary citations to Creative Commons image rights."

 

For this purpose Curator's Code was created.

 

Curator's Code is first of all "a movement to honor and standardize attribution of discovery across the web" as well as a web site where you can learn about the two key types of attribution that we should be using:

a) Via - which indicates a link of direct discovery

b) Hat tip - Indicates a link of indirect discovery, story lead, or inspiration.

 

Each one has now a peculiar characterizing icon that Curator's Code suggests to integrate in your news and content publication policies. 

 

Additionally and to make it easy for anyone to integrate these new attribution icons in their work, Curator's Code has created a free bokkmarklet which makes using proper attribution a matter of one clic.

 

Hat tip to Maria Popova and Curator's Code for launching this initiative. 

 

Whether or not you will sign Curator's Code pledge, become an official web site supporting it, or adopt its bookmarklet instantly is not as important as the key idea behind it: by providing credit and attribution to pieces of content you find elsewhere, you not only honestly reward who has spent time to create that content, but you significantly boost the opportunity for thousands of others to connect, link up to, discover and make greater sense of their search for meaning.

 

Read Maria Popova introductory article to Curator's Code: http://www.brainpickings.org/index.php/2012/03/09/curators-code/ ;

 

How to use the Curator's bookmarklet: http://vimeo.com/38243275 ;

 

Healthy. Inspiring. 9/10

 

Curator's Code official web site: http://curatorscode.org/ ;

 

N.B.: Too bad that the Curator's Code bookmarklet doesn't work with Scoop.it, as the one excludes the other. But you could save the two codes for the special attribution characters in a text note and copy and paste whicever you need. Given the need for simplicity and integration this is not an ideal solution but I am sure that between Maria and Guillaume at Scoop.it they will find a way to make this work easily for all. Maria and Guillaume: what do you say?

Beth Kanter's comment, March 11, 2012 1:01 PM
Thanks Robin for sharing and curating this article with your summary. I discovered it via Barbara Bray's collection where she had re scooped your scoop -- [and if following the curator's code added a via]. I came over here to rescoop (with a via!) because you are the original source and one of the links was broken (you corrected it and added an update) thus reminding me the importance of going to the original source. Here on scoop.it you can just follow the trail of the rescoop icon.

I am disappointed that the bookmarklet doesn't work together with the scoop.it one - but it would be great to have it integrated. Now to figure out how to rescoop it with the characters.
Robin Good's comment, March 11, 2012 1:12 PM
Hi Beth, thanks for your kind feedback. I was just out today for a video interview with Nancy White here in Rome, and she mentioned you as someone she likes for your ability to curate and make sense of things.

Re the integration of the curators' code icons, I have received feedback from Guillaume De Cugies of Scoop.it that he has been exchanging with Maria Popova and that he is looking with her for a way to integrate the two.

For now you can simply install the Curators' Code bookmarklet and use the "via"<a href="http://www.curatorscode.org" target="_blank" style="font-family:sans-serif;text-decoration:none" >&#x1525;</a> or hat tip <a href="http://www.curatorscode.org" target="_blank" style="font-family:sans-serif;text-decoration:none" >&#x21ac;</a> icons by copying and pasting their code into your scoops manually. The problem, at least for me is, that the scoop.it editing window is in the same position where the Curators' Code bookmarklet is and therefore I can't see both at the same time.

In any case I think it would be trivial for Scoop.it or any other tool to integrate such buttons directly into their system without having us to use two different tools for one task.
Karen Dietz's comment, March 11, 2012 9:36 PM
Many thanks Robin for the help! Somehow I missed the article -- computer fatigue probably :) I read it earlier today and look forward to using the codes. I'm thrilled to hear that scoop.it is looking into integrating them into the platform. Thanks for keeping us updated on this new, and important twist, for curating. Cheers -- Karen

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."

Journalist's Resource: Research for Reporting, from Harvard Shorenstein Center

Journalist's Resource: Research for Reporting, from Harvard Shorenstein Center | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

Excerpted from the article by Harvard Gazette:

 

"We live in a world of too much information and not enough knowledge. No one feels the strain of that digital-age truism more than journalists, who are asked to ferret out and process information with ever-increasing speed — and often at the expense of providing solid context for the news of the day.


Journalist’s Resource, a new online tool developed at Harvard’s Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy, aims to put that background knowledge at the fingertips of reporters, bloggers, or even concerned citizens by making the work of academics less opaque and easier to find.


But the website, which curates scholarship on government, economics, society, and the environment, is more than just a reliable shortcut for deadline-driven journalists.


“There is a real need for deepening journalism with verified, high-quality knowledge that informs the kind of serious journalism that makes our democracy work,” said Alex S. Jones, director of the Shorenstein Center and a lecturer in public policy at HKS.

 

“It becomes very difficult for journalists, journalism professors, and students to go through and find the key items that would help them. We’re trying to be a useful filter and curator.”...."

Curator’s Code proposal receives pushback: “I’m not a ‘curator’ ” critic complains

Curator’s Code proposal receives pushback: “I’m not a ‘curator’ ” critic complains | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

This piece was brought to my attention by my friend and colleague, Doug Millison from Siliconvalleywatcher. If you're curating content, following it as it evolves  or a happy consumer of content that a trusted source selected and curated for you, you may have seen the original article by Maria Popova, from brainpickings. The author of this commentary is Marco Arment who disagrees with what she said and this is just a snipit of her article. He feels there is too much "aggregation, rewriting, not giving credit to the original source, curators shouldn't be credited" and he doesn't see value in curation.

 

Here is the original article he is responding to curated by Robin Good along with several comments which were just as interesting. The good curators are conscientous and hard-working.

 

 

Credit and Attribution Are Fantastic Untapped Resources for Discovery, Not Duties: Maria Popova and The Curstors Code, via @RobinGood http://bit.ly/yiFOU3

 

My summary:

 

Maria is saying that when a curator spends hours looking for quality content, then adds commentary or additional context, this should be looked upon as "intellectual capital".  In response to Marco Arment, A trusted curator is not looking to highjack the original content creator's article and keep them on their own site. Just the opposite, if they're doing their job properly, they should give the hightlights so the reader can scan it quickly and either click to the original source or read it later. It's almost like creating a trailer for the author and helping the reader get the main points so they can go on with their day.

 

Obviously, it is up those of us who are working dilligently to provide their audiences with relevant information, to continue curating, crediting and linking back to the original source.

 

I think this is a process and gradually people will come to see the value of what we do - hopefully the creators of original material. We are giving them exposure to new audiences, helping to take their post to another level by adding additional information, inviting comments, etc.

 

We are all suffering from too much content and information and it's not going to get any better. Trusted soures are helping people to navigate through the noise and this is only the beginning.

 

I value your comments and opinions on this topic.

What Difference Is There Between An Editor and a Content Curator? | Liz Wilson

What Difference Is There Between An Editor and a Content Curator? | Liz Wilson | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

Liz Wilson writes on the Paper.li community blog: "I had my first online argument recently.

 

I didn’t enjoy it, as I detest arguing in public (or even at all), but this seemed to matter. Not in the way that poverty or injustice or corruption matter.

 

But it was important to me because I felt my adversary was simplifying to the point of losing meaning, which seems to be almost a way of life where a new or complicated word is involved.


It was an argument about the term “content curator” and what it means. I had started an online discussion asking for examples of content curation in internal communications (because it’s one of my fields of interest).


The only response was more than I had bargained for.

 

My correspondent felt vehemently that “curator” was a lexical relic, exhumed from a dusty Victorian dictionary by software manufacturers hyping their wares. He strongly advised professional communicators not to confuse their clients by using this “jargon”. “Editor” would do fine.

 

I wasn’t convinced… but… did he have a point?"

Robin Good: Scoop.it has just launched a new set of features that help curators find more easily other content by introducing a new visual search feature, while enhancing individual post display, sharing options and addig a dedicated user search option.

 

The new features, are definitely a plus providing some long due oxygen to some of the more asphitic Scoop.it areas: news and curators discovery.

 

There is a lot more to do on this front, but these apear to be definitely some good initial steps in the right direction.

 

I am particularly fond of the new individual post display and layout, which truly expands the opportunities to lean more about related the topics, comments and the curator behind the channel.
