I love "curating" or collecting stuff that helps me be a better video creator and / or gives me new ideas for creating video content. Kinda like here on Scoop.it! Here's another new way to collect on Google+

Robin Good's curator insight, April 28, 5:52 AM


"Wonder was built to bring human-centric guidance back to the pursuit of knowledge on the web."


in other words: "Away from algorithmically sorted lists of links, and back to human-guided curation, evaluation and advice for those who don't need just a store address on a map".


Wonder is a new free web service which touts to be your online personal research assistant. Behind its minimalist website there's a crew of human beings that actually goes out to gather and bring back to you valuable answers and resources to your questions.


How does it work?

You just register via FB, Twitter or with your own email and then you are presented with a very simple screen in which you are asked "what are you wondering"?

You type in a question, and within a very reasonable amount of time (in my cases, in always less than 30 minutes) you receive a hand written email answer by a person with a first and last name. Not only. The person provides you also with multiple links to relevant resources that can help you find out and discover more about the topic of your interest.
 

Why it's relevant: Independently of the quality of the results that Wonder may initially bring to you, this new service highlights a growing trend toward trusted guides, expert curators of information, and their human voice and away from algorithmically sorted list of results like Google offers.


P.S.: In my initial tests a reply for a very specific question in one of my areas of expertise didn't bring back particularly valuable or useful suggestions as this knowledge would require an expert in the field, but less specialistic questions brought back useful responses written in a very human-style and supported by very high-quality relevant links and resources.


Here is one such question - answer as an example for you:


My Research Request:
How can I trust the answers provided by those behind Wonder if I know nothing about who they are?


Mike Smith reply:
Let me assure you, I am no robot. The resources curated by Wonder are compiled and collated by real human beings (such as myself) who take the time to sort through the vast amount of information available on the web.

I view the task of the Wonder researcher as being rather similar to that of your local librarian. And any good librarian isn't going to tell you how to think: they will present you with what knowledge and information they have available and arrange it in such a way that you must come to your own conclusion. Do you demand the librarian's credentials? Do you peruse their degrees and certifications? No, because her/his credentials lie in the quality of the work they have laid before you. Even if you detect bias or prejudice in what has been presented to you, then the curator's task has already been accomplished: you have assessed, for yourself, the quality of the information you have encountered and have honed your critical faculties that much more.

- Content curation (i.e. Wonder) is similar to consulting a librarian for literature on a particular subject


- Content curators (e.g. librarians) have empirically improved critical thinking skills in students

- Content curators (e.g. librarians) are tasked with fostering critical thinking in the evaluation of information sources

Google Judges the Quality of Your Content and So Should You

Google Judges the Quality of Your Content and So Should You | Curating Information | Scoop.it

Content quality is a topic that has been broached hundreds and maybe thousands of times. And yet, many brands still don't seem to understand what it means.

 

Neil Patel sets the record straight: Content quality matters because Google Search "says" so. And when Google says something, you should listen, mostly because the search engine still delivers a majority of traffic to sites. 


Every update is another step in the direction of high relevancy and usefulness. There is no way around that fact. 


Neil doesn't ask us to pander to the whims of the Google gods. I see this article as a way to help us understand what truly matters to consumers. After all, what Google shows to searchers is always based on their interests...


Everyone likes to talk about content being king, and the importance of quality content. It’s time that we truly understand what it means to have quality content.

RSS Feed Aggregator Allows To Curate Content Inside WordPress: PressForward

RSS Feed Aggregator Allows To Curate Content Inside WordPress: PressForward | Curating Information | Scoop.it

Robin Good's curator insight, April 27, 3:43 AM



PressForward is a free open-source, WordPress plugin for curating most any type of content within the standard WordPress publishing workflow.

PressForward is in fact a full-fledged RSS feed reader and aggregator which can capture content coming from any site while allowing full editing and curation abilities. It is an ideal tool for news curators wanting to have a news gathering and discovery tool integrated into their standard publishing and editing environment.


PressForward is designed to be used by multiple users, like in a distributed newsroom, where several individuals or even a small community suggest and submit and others edit, approve and post selected content.

To gather content PressForward offers a standard bookmarklet to capture any content you find on the web, and can also import OPML files to allow you to aggregate and filter all of your favorite RSS feeds. 


Last but not least, PressForward keeps close tabs on the sources you utilise, by automatically creating attribution links for any content you curate and allowing you to have your posts optionally auto-redirect to the original source. 


Free to use.
