Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Mitch Free writes on Forbes about the unique business value that curation can bring to those markets where there is already an abundance of choices.

 

"The web has revolutionized access to information. If you travel to a new city, you don’t have to wait to ask a hotel concierge or local contact which restaurants are worth your time: that information is at your fingertips long before you arrive.


The web’s universality and ubiquity are also its weaknesses, however: even if all are listed online, choosing from the 25,000 restaurants in New York City still requires a local’s advice.


While “curation” might bring to mind the image of a red-jacketed museum staffer scowling at you for taking flash photographs, in the digital age it’s becoming an increasingly critical – and lucrative – business model.


No longer is access to information precious in itself. Information is overwhelmingly available, and those in a position to tame the tidal wave into a useful format offer a valuable service."

 

The articles uses as a reference example the case of a new restaurant listing site that curates the best 100 restaurants in 100 cities by charging qualifying restaurants.

 

 

Rightful. Interesting. 7/10

Ken Dickens's curator insight, August 7, 2013 1:00 PM

Non-Profits are a commodity. There are over 1.5 million of them in the US alone, all with great causes, all with their hands out to ask for money. Enter Donor Fatigue.  Want to stand out? Become "the" source of information on your cause. In other words, give to get.  You will stand out. You will gain trust.  And, you will raise money.

This is a great read and what I'm betting on heavily at our crowdfunding cancer research website and nonprofit http://www.curecancerstarter.org. I love this quote:

?No longer do we rely on a few experts and advertisers to dole out information according to their own priorities, and passively consume that information. On the contrary, content can be created and curated by literally thousands of ‘average’ people with above average interest and insight, and spread across huge aggregations of likeminded people."

Frames my belief and our bet well.

What Is Content Curation: My Collection of the Best Definitions | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Since I get asked over and over to define "content curation" in a few words, I have invested some time in gathering and culling what I deem to be the most appropriate and useful definitions of "content curation" available online.

Here is a pretty comprehensive picture of what "content curation" is from my personal viewpoint.

Where To Find Good Alternative Sources for Content Curation

Where To Find Good Alternative Sources for Content Curation | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it


Robin Good: If you are looking for ways to expand your horizon of content sources that you can use to find valuable content for your curated news channel, Pawan Deshpande, founder and CEO of Curata, has done an excellent job of listing and describing the many alternatives available to you.

 

While many beginner curators rely on their set of RSS feeds and on simple web searches to find new and interesting stuff on their topic of interest, there are a dozen more content source types that can be tapped to find relevant stuff. This article helps you start learning where to look to find them.

 

 

Useful. Resourceful. 8/10

Teresa Levy's curator insight, December 16, 2012 7:44 PM

when we first star to use the Net to research, the number of pages indicated seems overwhelming. The thing to do is to have good ways of evaluation of sites, in what relates to accuracy and validity as well as relevance. what this clip does is exactly that: suggest a way to steer among the imensity of what comes out

Jim Lerman's curator insight, December 21, 2012 6:50 PM

This piece is quite meaningful to me...always on the lookout for more sources.
