Content Creation Vs. Curation: Curators Are The New Media Editors

Robin Good: John McCarus, SVP for Brand Content at Digitas, ignites an interesting panel about content creation vs content curation.

 

This is the second in a series of three videos highlighting a 2012 conversation on the future of media on the social web organized by Ben Elowitz, CEO of Wetpaint.

The nicely edited video, brings up in its four minutes, some valuable takes and opinions on how curation is perceived, used and modulated to achieve different results and objectives.

 

From mere republishing and copying of someone else materials without attribution or credit (certainly not something to be categorized under "curation") to the new cadre of emerging journalists, who not only write, but also monitor, research, pre-digest and cull the most interesting content - not written by them - for their own audiences.

 

Key takeaways:


“A curator is an editor, essentially. You become a trusted source by doing the hard work for your audience and telling them what’s important, whether you’ve written it or not.

Traditionally that’s been the role of great newspapers; now that function is being spread across the web.”
Erick Schonfeld, TechCrunch


- Publishers have a love / hate relationship with curators.

 

- Curators help to expand a publisher’s reach, but the publisher risks losing credit (and traffic).

 

- Curators who link back and republish only enough to pique interest will keep publishers happy.

 

“It’s like the forest episode of Planet Earth: the animal eats the nectar and sort of destroys the plant but spreads the pollen all over.”

Jason Hirschhorn, Media ReDEFined

Shel Holtz: Smarter Curation for Enterprises

Shel Holtz: Smarter Curation for Enterprises | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

Excerpt from the article:

 

"Shel Holtz has more than 35 years’ experience of organisational communications, in in-house and consulting roles with mostly Fortune 500 companies.

 

We asked Shel about how mid- to large-sized organisations can focus their curation efforts, and he outlines four ways organisations large and small can benefit now:

 

1. Curating news around events as an alternative to pitching for traditional media coverage:

Take a product launch — they could curate who’s saying what from among their customers, partners and consumers. It’s an opportunity to create a resource and put it up on their media page.

 

2. Curating trusted, publicly accessible resource to increase reputation:

A high quality curation of content can reflect well on the organisation, increasing its reputation. It could be done by a team or a single employee, selecting what is relevant, pulling it into one place, commenting on why it’s important, and then making it accessible.

 

3. Giving employees access to social media, so they can share internally curated news outside the organisation...

 

4. Curating to help employees work smarter:

An example is external news on the intranet. Lots of intranets offer it, but often it comes from an external provider and is like a firehose — some of it not so relevant, and you can have multiple versions of the same story from different media outlets...."

 

In this article Shel Holtz gives other many examples.

Spool Is Enabling Users On Collaborative Curation | GigaOM

Spool Is Enabling Users On Collaborative Curation | GigaOM | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

 

"Today Spool is mostly being used to bookmark and sync content that you want to consume later across multiple devices.

But it sees an opportunity to be more than just a way for users to manage content that is interesting to them. It is also enabling them to share that content with relevant groups.

 

The application is a bit of a combination of Dropbox and Evernote, letting users store videos, articles, images and even PDFs in the cloud. But the sharing aspect is what is really interesting and a real opportunity.

 

While Facebook and other services are enabling so-called frictionless sharing of what our friends and contacts are watching and consuming at any given time, that has also resulted in a lot of noise and not a whole lot of signal. It is hard to know what’s good and what’s not. So what Spool hopes to do is to enable users to more easily share relevant content within groups..."

Digital Content Curation: Good Advice On How To Become A Content Curator

Digital Content Curation: Good Advice On How To Become A Content Curator | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are a librarian, an information scientist or someone who has been trained to sift through lots of information and to extract valuable insight, you will enjoy reading this article by John Warrier published today on Library Journal. 

 

Mr. Warrier, who is information librarian, has two jobs. The first is as a librarian at a community college. The second as a content curator at Neatorama.com where he "highlights" neat, odd, and fascinating bites of amusement, from the latest breakthroughs across hundreds of topics.

 

In the article he shares his insight and advice about content curation and on what it may take for newbies to break into this field.

 

"...content curators focus on the news needs of particular professions and industries."

 

Professional News Curation Examples

1) The staff of PRDaily.com, for example, provides public relations professionals with the latest and the best news about that industry.

2) DesignBoom.com keeps track of the newest and hottest trends in art and industrial design.

3) BusinessInsider.com highlights news about world markets.

 

Getting Started

You can get started in content curation quite quickly.

 

a) All you need is a social media platform, such as a blog, Twitter feed, open-access Facebook page, or Google+ profile.

b) Find the best content and add new items daily.

c) Focus not on your own interests, but those of your readership.

d) Prove that you can draw readers as a trusted source and keep them coming back for more.

e) Then you should try to secure an internship.

Many content curation firms, such as Mediaite, Gawker and Flavorwire, offer internships that will give you hands-on training in the field. They’ll train you to examine your audience, compile potential sources and pitch your content to the audience in an attention-grabbing way."

Microsoft Launches Curation Site msnNow | InformationWeek | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

Microsoft has launched a site that curates content from blogs, news feeds, and social media sites in an effort to aggregate buzzworthy topics from around the Web in one place.

 

The site, msnNow, "cuts through the clutter of the Web, providing an up-to-the minute view of breaking trends and the hottest social conversations, what people are saying about them, and why they matter," the software maker said.

 

MsnNow captures feeds from Facebook, Twitter, Bing, BreakingNews.com, and other sites. Microsoft said content is chosen through the use of special algorithms that measure which topics are generating the most buzz around the Web.

 

The site features a rotating carousel of top stories at the top of the page, and a sidebar panel on the right that lists the "biggest movers."

 

MsnNow also features a prominent Bing search box, an indication that Microsoft is hoping the site will drive traffic to its search engine.

If It's Easy and Takes No Time, Maybe It's Not Curation: It's Noise Generation (Call It Republishing If You Wish)

If It's Easy and Takes No Time, Maybe It's Not Curation: It's Noise Generation (Call It Republishing If You Wish) | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Amber Naslund, at Brass Tack Thinking blog, has a great article touching on the importance of curation and on the danger of easily selling personal self-expression and serendipitous re-sharing of other people's content with true content curation.

 

And she is so damn right about this.

 

 

Here a few key highlights from her article:

 

" 1) To me – and by definition – curation requires conscious thought with the purpose of adding value, context, or perspective to a collection of things.

 

It’s deliberate work, gathering things together for a reason and lending a keen editing eye to those assets, whether it be pieces of art or pieces of writing.

 

...

 

2) Turning your Twitter feed into a clockwork-scheduled stream of all the stuff you find in your RSS feed is not curation, it’s distribution.

 

And since collecting and redistributing content is arguably easier than creating it, everyone does it.

 

Which serves to create a great deal of noise, and as we’ve lamented for some time now, it becomes increasingly difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff and home in on information resources that are consistently valuable, and favor mindful selection and sharing over optimizing a feed to populate a bunch of links and drive traffic or gain fans and followers.

 

 

3) Can curation be accomplished online? I think so.

 

But it’s rarely what we actually see happening when we immerse ourselves in social networks, and it’s not what we’re doing when we click the “share” button over and over again.

 

...

 

4) The business case for curating content has long been that you can become an expert resource for others, a trusted source of information or expertise that sets you apart.

 

But becoming a trusted source of information implies a willingness and ability to apply filters, to have exacting standards, to discern the good from the simply popular, the valuable from the gimmicked and hyped.

 

Which requires work. A lot of it.

 

Not just an app and the ability to put your collection and distribution on autopilot."

 

 

Thank you Amber, you are so damn right. 

 

Insightful. 9/10

Content Curation Could Be Your Most Powerful Community-Building Tool | Content Marketing Institute

Content Curation Could Be Your Most Powerful Community-Building Tool | Content Marketing Institute | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

Susan McKittrick, an analyst with Patricia Seybold Group, wrote in this her article:

 

"We hear a lot about content curation these days. Some call it a top trend for 2012 and a must-see new technology for marketers.

 

A content curator assembles a quality collection of third-party and original content that is of keen interest to a particular audience, selects the best content for presentation, adds commentary valuable to the audience and publishes to the audience’s preferred channels. Content curation tools use technology to facilitate these steps.

 

Marketers use content curation to establish a reputation as a trusted resource in a particular area, to build an audience (that eventually buys) above the funnel, and to foster interaction with a community of people who share specific interests.

 

You will find a good example of content curation in action at www.cmo.com. Curators of this website draw on top quality content created by others combined with their own original content to present.

 

An enterprise content curation tool will:

- Help you find the best content;
- Make it fast and easy to select items and add commentary;
- Provide flexibility in presentation and distribution of curated content;
- Support the information consumer’s experience, through personalization and navigation;
- Report data marketers need to improve execution, demonstrate value and gain customer insight.


Some of the enterprise content curation tools you’ll want to consider are:

- Eqentia - http://www.eqentia.com
- HiveFire - http://www.getcurata.com

How MyPod Studios Is Building A Successful Online Video Platform Through Curation | ReelSEO

How MyPod Studios Is Building A Successful Online Video Platform Through Curation | ReelSEO | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

In this article, Jeremy Scott interviews CEO & founder of MyPod Studios, Jay Miletsky, on how they have rapidly built a large audience in a short time through careful curation.

 

 

 

MyPod Studios, launched in October, 2010, was built to provide an alternative to the standard issue video networks that litter the Web, and take a slightly more unique approach to presenting online video.

 

Here are some excerpts from article. Jay Miletsky says:

 

"Our primary goal is to create something that people will seek out as a source of great entertainment, enjoy, and want to see more of. We want to continue to grow the amount of watchable content on the network, while remaining a gated community of only pre-approved videos.

 

I think our network provides a more fun and enjoyable experience than many of the others.

It’s also more personal – the hostess on the home page and category pages add a level of humanity to the site that people can relate to, and we’ve made the Pods easy to find and access. So I think we’ve definitely done something right when it comes to the user experience.


But more importantly, I believe our popularity comes from the fact that we maintain control over the network.

 

We look at all of the content that we’re presented, and ask ourselves if it informs, educates and/or entertains...."

Just the News: A curated online news service that cuts out all the noise | The Next Web

Excerpt from the article:

 

"Don't you sometimes just wish you could drown out all the background noise on the World Wide Web and get back to basics? If your answer is yes, then read on.
Just the News is an experiment by Max Temkin to capture the big news of the day “without any gossip, sports, or distracting bullshit.” In short, it cuts through the cacophonous crackle of the white-noise Web and brings you a selection of the top news stories of the day.

 

“I’ve always wished I could get my news on a plain white page with a few well-curated stories; no ads, no social media, no comments,” says Max.

 

Just the News is about as simple as a website gets. No banners, logos or any other distractions – just a short, hand-picked list of links to 4-5 news pieces, plus one ‘long read’.

 

As Max himself says, “I’m no reporter”, so the true value of this site and the curation skills on which it is built, remains to be seen. This experiment will continue every morning during March, and then Max is open to what happens next."

Bad News for Video Curation Startups: Magnify Gets Patent and Permission To Sue Video Curation Services

Bad News for Video Curation Startups: Magnify Gets Patent and Permission To Sue Video Curation Services | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Nonetheless Magnify.net founder Steven Rosenbaum states "“I believe in the freedom of innovation", his company has just been awarded U.S. Patent No. 8,117,545 covering hosted video discovery and publishing platforms.

 

The patent description clearly covers any web-based service which allows you to create a topic-specific channel with manually or auto-curated video content.

 

Here the exact wording: "A hosted system provides any Internet user with the ability to quickly set up and customize a video channel, preferably as a web page or site that can be reached from any Internet-accessible device having a web browser.

 

The solution includes tools for use by channel site creators to customize the look, feel, and page design.

 

A particular web page or site may be associated with a given subject.

 

As used herein, a page or site that has such an association is sometimes referred to as “subject-specific...” 

 

I don't know what's your take on this, but I personally don't see this as good news for curation and video curation startups, who are presently innovating in this space (like Blinkx, Redux, Chill, Vodpod, Magma, Yokto, Shufflr, Griddeo, Shortform, Mixd.tv, Embedr, Plizy, Vidcaster, Yubby, and many others).

 

Patents, whether in the hands of large or small players are the antithesis of open innovation and it is for me difficult to support who in the name of a better future, choses to utilize the means of his worst enemies to achieve its business ends. 

 

While Magnify.net investors may indeed pretty happy about this, I am not.

 

Worrysome. 4/10 (Pass this news on)

The New York Times Launches Deep Dive: Experimental Context Engine And Story Explorer | Nieman Lab

The New York Times Launches Deep Dive: Experimental Context Engine And Story Explorer | Nieman Lab | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

Thinking about the sheer volume of information — stories, images, videos, data — available from The New York Times can evoke a simultaneous glee and terror.

It is simply impossible for readers to see them all.

 

The task for beta620, the Times experimental projects group, launched Deep Dive that uses the Times’ massive cache of metadata from stories to go, as the name suggests, deeper into a news event by pulling together related articles. So Deep Dive would provides readers a collection of stories relating to a topic, based on whatever person, place, event or topic of their choosing.

 

What’s interesting about Deep Dive? At least three things:

1) Deep Dive relies on the extensive tagging system the Times uses for all its stories and makes the Times Topics pages possible. As part of the editing flow tags are applied to stories by editors or producers, with suggestions provided by an internal algorithm. Deep Dive looks for connections among topics.

 

2) Deep Dive’ unique interfact, where the related articles flow into the same frame as the main story when selected. You need never leave the page; jumping backwards or forwards in articles all happens in the same space. That’s a departure from the pageview-driven way most news sites are designed. But Deep Dive’s UI matches its underlying thesis: that individual articles are really pieces of a larger story, told in pieces over time and across bylines and datelines.

 

3) More interesting, Deep Dive will also allows users to save their “dives,” which would be constantly updated with new articles. What Deep Dives promises is an alert more directly based around a specific developing story.

 

But beyond those elements, the real promise of Deep Dive, though, is that it continues to show the Times’ flexibility in providing different ways for different kinds of readers to access its content...

Curate Your Own Video Board: Chill Is The New Pinterest for Video

Robin Good: Chill, the video sharing and discovery site, has just introduced a new feature that allows anyone to clip and share, on a Pinterest-like thematic board, all of the video clips he finds on the web.

 

The new Chill bookmarklet works very much like the Pinterest one. When you click it, a page shows you all of the video clips found in that page and offers you to clip and "post" the one you want, with your comments. 

 

It's as easy as that.

 

The generated "curated" Chill video boards are easy to scan and browse, though, in my view, a great boon would be the ability to check a few of those videos and to click a play button that plays them full screen back to back. This way I have the best of curated content, my own selection, and the final lay-back and watch gratification option. 

 

Very promising.

The Ability To Extract and Communicate Insight from Data It's Going To Be Huge: McKinsey Quarterly [Video]

The Ability To Extract and Communicate Insight from Data It's Going To Be Huge: McKinsey Quarterly [Video] | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

Robin Good: In January of 2009 the McKinsey Quarterly published a video interview and a full article entitled "Hal Varian on how the Web challenges managers" in which Google’s chief economist told executives in wired organizations how much they needed a sharper understanding of how technology empowers innovation.

 

In the video, Hal Varian says something that if you are trying to understand the emerging curation trend, is as relevant (if not more) today as three years ago when it was first published:

 

"The ability to take data - to be able to understand it, to process it, to extract value from it, to visualize it, to communicate it's going to be a hugely important skill in the next decades, not only at the professional level but even at the educational level for elementary school kids, for high school kids, for college kids.

 

Because now we really do have essentially free and ubiquitous data.

 

So the complimentary scarce factor is the ability to understand that data and extract value from it.

 

I think statisticians are part of it, but it's just a part.

You also want to be able to visualize the data, communicate the data, and utilize it effectively.

 

But I do think those skills - of being able to access, understand, and communicate the insights you get from data analysis - are going to be extremely important..."

One option is to start using some good news discovery tools which can greatly help you filter out some of the useless spammy content that fills in most unfiltered searches and feed streams.

 

Here is my mindmap on news discovery tools which can help you in finding your best crop of interesting stories on the specific topic you are interested in.

 

It contains over 30 news discovery tools and services all with a direct link.

Thanks again for skyping into the conference, doing the video, and creating the map! I learned a lot and so did the 300 ngos in the room. And, I've been slowly playing with the tools on this list and now really adore trap.it!

Xydo is still a discovery engine, but is now focused on discovering content for email marketers. The rest of the list seems to be more focused on general purpose news discovery.
From their new home page:

"Easily find white-hot content that’s relevant to your business and customers."

Quickly create beautiful, white-labeled emails optimized for web, email, and mobile.

Track every action: opens, clicks, shares, etc. — down to an individual subscriber."
