Are Curators the Gatekeepers of Knowledge Transmission? Ann Blair on The History of Information

Are Curators the Gatekeepers of Knowledge Transmission? Ann Blair on The History of Information | Curating Tools and Information | Scoop.it

The history professor and author of Too Much to Know tells us what researchers have been discovering about how earlier human societies collected, organised and used information...

 

Amazing read and historical perspective about transmission. Knowledge and information are actually very different concept :

 

"This book doesn’t actually focus on the term information but it talks about the institutions that made knowledge possible. Its first volume runs “From Gutenberg to Diderot" – in other words, mid-15th to mid-18th century.

 

A second volume stretches “From the Encyclopédie to Wikipedia”, from the mid-18th century to the 21st century.

 

Peter Burke is a great cultural historian who has worked on many different aspects of the transmission of knowledge – including, for example, how historians worked, or how ideas about good behaviour at court were transmitted.

 

In this synthetic pair of books he explores the question: What were the institutions that were collecting, classifying, sorting and disseminating information?"

 

In our world now where information is everywhere, how you make sure that knowledge is still accessible?

 

Curation is now not only a great means to express yourself but also an obvious path to become a gatekeeper and a qualitative filter.

 

This article gives an awesome perspective on an universal and eternal inspiring mission : transmission.

Every business interaction with a prospective buyer or customer is a potential story. That’s right, stories about your business are already being shared. Isn’t it time to take a more proactive approach to contribute to the conversation?

Never underestimate of the power of a woman, especially when combined with social media. From the number of active users on a social network to the frequency of their interaction with other users and brands, women are a powerful force in the social media realm. Curious how much power women hold on social media? 

 

Take a look at the infographic below from Finances Online for some possibly surprising statistics. While it is well-known that women dominate Pinterest, they also outnumber men on four of the other top six social networks: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr. However, men continue to account for the majority of LinkedIn’s users. In addition, 30% of women use social media multiple times a day, while only 26% men report using social media sites several times a day...
