Why Content Curation is the Ultimate Compliment to the Creator

Why Content Curation is the Ultimate Compliment to the Creator | Curating Information | Scoop.it
Before today, imitation was the greatest form of flattery. If your idea was good enough to be copied, then you were golden. But now, with the state of the web in our lives, this balance is shifting.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, December 5, 2013 3:44 PM

Ever since we started Scoop.it, we've always cared a lot about content creators' best interests: by providing a framework, content curation platforms like ours have helped defined ethical content curation over the past few years by making it easy and automatic to link back, attribute, quote sources, extract quotes, etc... 


While some creators have had legitimate questions, it's a real satisfaction for us to see a growing number of bloggers, writers and media companies tell us they're seeing strong positive traffic, credibility or distribution benefits from seeing their work curated by our community. 

Giovanni Sonego's curator insight, December 15, 2013 9:17 AM

Una volta c'erano le raccolte di link, come dmoz, yahoo e altre ancora. Essere presenti in una di queste raccolte era un punto d'onore per qualunque webmaster (o per qualunque autore). 

 

Poi si è attraversata la fase della copia pedissequa. C'era ch prendeva contenuti altrui e li riproponeva senza alcun intervento se non quelli SEO per conquistare un proprio posizionamento. Essere citati in questo modo faceva un po' arrabbiare gli autori che percepivano uno sfruttamento del proprio lavoro.

 

Adesso siamo nella fase della "content curation", cosa molto diversa dalla semplice copia o dalla creazione di un link . Il lavoro di curatore prevede selezione, valutazione e riproposizione di contenuti altrui. E' simile al lavoro dei critici che scelgono e commentano e aiutano i comuni mortali a districarsi tra milioni di informazioni e ci aiutano a scoprire contenuti sempre più pertinenti: libri, ristoranti, film...

Perciò, sostiene l'articolo, se un autore si accorge che un suo contenuto è stato curato non deve prendersela, anzi! Una corretta opera di curation è il massimo complimento che gli si possa rivolgere.

The Magic of Graphic Recording: Turning Live Talks into Visual Content

The Magic of Graphic Recording: Turning Live Talks into Visual Content | Curating Information | Scoop.it

Some people are better able to translate (and recall) information when visuals are involved. For Kelly, graphic recording is a no-brainer compared to taking primarily text-based notes. “Drawing simple pictures is actually a much quicker and more efficient way to capture ideas than to capture them word-for-word,” she says. “Ability and practice make it easier for other people to interpret your drawings, too.

 

To create this visual content, graphic recorders listen for key ideas in a conversation. They’re trained to recognize verbal cues to identify these key ideas and quickly replicate them through drawings. This skill helps them to capture the essence of a live presentation in a short amount of time — a feature that seems to enthrall audiences both online and in-person. Graphic recordings are so fresh, in fact, that much of their appeal resides in watching the process itself unfold...

Quite a long read that focuses on two or three of some of the more interesting recent studies into what's going on in our brains when we're listening to music.  Shelly looks at how we develop "musical templates" that allow our drug addled brains to feed us dopamine on demand and then looks at the relationship between music, emotions and the limbic system - the studies would indicate that they are pretty much intertwined, regardless of culture.

Curation is the best way for busy people to reap the rewards of a high-traffic site without spending all day, every day, writing content and trying to "trick" people into visiting their sites with mediocre content.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, December 19, 2013 12:51 AM

A useful summary of the current shortcomings in content curation tools and services, and what we features and innovations we might see in this developing market. From the author:

 

"In the near future it is likely that new content curation tools will provide more dedicated features for specific application and uses while becoming more aware of user needs that so far have not been taken into serious consideration (attribution, archiving, monetizing).

While large content curation hubs and platforms are likely to start realizing that their best value yet to be extracted is in the content being curated by their users, new tools will likely target more specific and professional uses rather than the general public needing simply to collect and repost content on their blog or social media channel."

Excerpt from the article by Pawan Deshpande and published on Content Marketing Institute:
"Many content curators are still unsure about what constitutes ethical curation, and how they can share third-party content without running afoul of copyright laws.
Here’s our 10-step checklist to help you curate ethically and effectively.

1. Draw from a variety of sources;
2. Prominently link to the original source;
3. Avoid “nofollow” links;
4. Quote sparingly;
5. Insert your own point of view;
6. Fill in the gaps;
7. Use thumbnail images;
8. Give readers the option to close an iFrame or share bar;
9. Add a new title;
10. Claim Google authorship, as appropriate..."

Curah! is a new site focusing on curating the best tech answers available online. 


Targeted mainly at developers, the new Microsoft information portal has been designed to provide curated answers on topics ranging from high-level technology descriptions to deep technical articles covering specific problems that developers commonly face.


By exploring the home page you can already find a set of gret examples of curated answers in which a Microsoft trusted expert has collected a set of artcìicles and online resources highly relevant to a specific topic.


"We’ve developed Curah! as a way to help customers discover great technical content. Curah! has a very specific purpose: to help people searching in Bing or Google find annotated collections of great content that specifically target common user questions."


Source: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/somasegar/archive/2013/11/20/curah-curate-the-web-and-share-what-you-know.aspx 


My comment: A great example of the value that content curation can provide to customers, developers as well as to the public at large. The choice of starting the site with great examples to follow-up on is also the best possible approach to guide and train future contributors on what is expected of them. A great model for the many specialized curated answer sites that will spring up in coming years.
