Back in Feberuary of this year Debbie Millman has interviewed Maria Popova, the curator of Brain Pickings, Literary 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.

-> 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
