Estos modus explican también las dos máquinas de archivo en relación a su carácter físico: el archivo unido a la cultura objetual y a la lógica de los sistemas de memoria materiales, y el archivo basado en la información virtual que sigue una racionalidad más próxima a lo flexible y no estable, no ordenado linealmente y al margen de toda jerarquización
Content Curation, in its most simplest terms, is the act of gathering related, targeted pieces of content and sharing it. Like an art curator, a Content Curator is a taste maker—an influencer—and has authority in a given topic.
YouTube made a big announcement on Wednesday night — ten digits big to be exact. The video-sharing startup that spent its early days operating out of an apartment above a pizzeria now boasts one billion users.
Google Trends enables you to take popular search queries and explore traffic patterns over time and geography. Now we've added YouTube search data going back to 2008, making it another great tool to look at video trends. Visit Google Trends and enter any search you'd like and then, on the left, choose "limit to" for YouTube. You can slice by region or category as well. Search query interest can often provide a more detailed picture into the life of a trend or topic. For example: for those of you wondering whether the "Harlem Shake" is over... it's not.

A tweet is an atom. A photo on Flickr is an atom. A conversation item on Google Buzz is an atom. A Facebook status message is an atom. A YouTube video is an atom. (...) A curator is an information chemist. He or she mixes atoms together in a way to build an info-molecule. Then adds value to that molecule. Real-time curators need to bundle.
Robin Good: Among the five digital trends presently shaping the consumer experience economy, according to Macala Wright who first wrote about this on Mashable, there is one that has as its key objective the reduction of "information noise", distractions and approaches to digital communication that make it harder to grasp and understand a message or to complete a key task one is after.
It reads like there is more to information curation than people scanning feeds and selecting relevant items to write about.
From the original article I have extracted a few passages: "Calm technology refers to applications that cut down on the digital noise of high-volume data to show the user only enough information that he or she needs to complete a task.
...It refers to technologies that do not disrupt our workflow.
The whole idea is to reduce distractions to our work flow without losing functionality.
Calm technology fights against many of the principles of digital marketing: instead of screaming for attention with flashing banner ads, technologies and applications politely take a backseat to the user’s primary focus...
Examples of calm technology can be found in the growing popularity of social curation and discovery.
Social product discovery sites such as Lyst, Mulu.Me, Buyosphere, Svpply and Discoveredd are essentially social filters that enable their communities to curate the products that are most relevant to them.
Moreover, the rise of interest networks and the idea of following someone who has similar likes and shared interest topics are examples of the principles of calm technology driving user behavior.
Google Circles, Pinterest and Chime.In, even location apps such as Sonar, Glancee and Highlight, can all be classified under the “term interest network.”
Along with this set of statistics about explored photos, here is another question I’ve been wondering for some time, although I could not find any data provided by Flickr, at least not on the 3 first result pages of Google. Anyway, the Flickr API is our friend, we just have to ask! ;-) The data reported hereafter regards PUBLIC PHOTOS ONLY, that is no private photo and no other type of material like videos. A few requests show that a vast majority of the uploaded material happens to be “public photo” anyway. Since Flickr started in 2004, until December 2013, the number of uploads sums up to 3.57 billion of photos, although Flickr has announced they reached 6 billion in August 2011… Either the Flickr API does not report all data ever, or the number of private photos and other material (presentations, videos) is as high as public photos but a few tests don't let assume that, or they are a bit optimistic ;-). Also it is to be noted that the search function of the Flickr API returns quite versatile data: the same query done at different times will return different figures... no explanation given on this issue. SUMMARY NUMBER OF PUBLIC PHOTOS UPLOADED IN 2013 - 586 million (585,789,736), - 48.8 million per month in average, - 1.6 million per day in average. NUMBER OF PUBLIC PHOTOS UPLOADED IN 2012 - 518 million (517,863,947), - 43 million per month in average, - 1.42 million per day in average. NUMBER OF PUBLIC PHOTOS UPLOADED IN 2011 - 560 million (560,228,008), - 46 million per month in average, - 1.54 million per day in average. Straight observation: in 2012, the number of uploads decreased by 7.5% compared to 2011. But although the first half of 2013 seemed to confirm this trend, June and July were exceptional. June even reached the highest monthly peak ever with 62,464,124 photos uploaded.
