Robin Good's curator insight, December 10, 2013 4:23 PM


Back in Feberuary of this year Debbie Millman has interviewed Maria Popova, the curator of Brain PickingsLiterary Jukebox and the inventor of Curator's Code.


Find out what Maria thinks curation is all about (How do we make sense of the world we through stuff and through objects - whether physical or metaphysical) and why she has become so interested in it.


Maria is a fantastic and highly prolific content curator producing three original posts and between 60 to 70 tweets a day.


Specific interview points I suggest you listen to: 


-> 24':30" for combinatorial creativity and the first recorded examples of content curation as a form authroship


-> 27':16" Curation - Do you define yourself a curator?


-> 28':00" Curators don't design, they organize


-> 28':50" What is curation


-> 29':19" Curation and pattern recognition


-> 37':45" The importance of discovery - why attribution matters

Awesome explanation for curation.  Thanks Kirsten Wilson @teachkiwi for this wonderful insight into why we curate!

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, September 22, 2013 6:36 PM

Robin Good opinion:

Kirsten Wilson analyzes three different levels of content curation presently in use and describes accurately the differences between these. 

 

"In regards to levels of curation it is much like Blooms. There is knowledge level curation- it is done for remembering and understanding (the “Learner Level”).


Another level is applying and analyzing- it is curated for use or been used and is a proven tool for using whether it be your tool or a tool you have discovered from your global connections via Social Media, blogs or simple internet searches (the “Facilitator Level”). 


Finally, there are curations that go to the level of evaluation and creation… these are the curations that become invaluable tools to others. It takes the most work, but the result is most thorough and the resource it provides to others can be invaluable (the “Designer Level”)."

 

He concludes by reminding all would-be curators the importance of attribution and the amount of effort that the "designer level" of curation requires: "In this world of immediate access and available content make every effort to honor the source of your curation, inspiration and/or springboard for design. 


Those that do curate at a “Designer” level and in many cases are the first in their field of expertise to find a new “method” put hours into the development and design."
