Curation - Robin Good Interviews Futurist Ross Dawson

Curation - Robin Good Interviews Futurist Ross Dawson | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it

Master Curator Robin Good interviews Futurist Ross Dawson. Here is an excerpt from article:

"Robin asked him: 

a) what he suggests to people who want to "make sense of the world", when bombarded by such large amounts of information. How do you make sense of how things are?

b) What is "curation"?

c) Is there any difference between personal, serendipitous social sharing and content curation?

d) What is the key discriminator between the two?

 

Ross Dawson answers: 

a) One of the best ways to make sense of the world is scenario planning or scenarios, where you build a number of worlds for what might happen and that's relevant to you and to use these as filters...

As you look at that and see new things, that's an enormously valuable filter around what is interesting, what is useful, what I need to pay attention to, and what I don't...

 

b) Curation is selecting what is relevant, selecting what is interesting... ...and this is now becoming almost overwhelming in terms of how many people are doing that.

 

Ultimately, [the goal is to reach a point] where I can wake up in the morning and I can say I know I have seen the most interesting and relevant things for me.

We're a long way away from that.

 

c) Sometimes, they can overlap, but [a curator] is usually [someone] saying, "I'm in a particular area. I am the expert. I know what there is. I'm doing that for people who are interested that topic, people I want to demonstrate my expertise too."

 

d) There's three, perhaps, [types of] intent.

1) One is to contribute to others, to give.

2) Another is to develop your own expertise. I think that's one of the ways to be able to search for and share things actually does make you know more, and I think that's very valid.

3) [The third one, which] is equally valid, though perhaps a little too overdone at the moment, is just people curating so that people look at them..."

Aggregating Content and Network Information to Curate Twitter User Lists

Abstract:

Twitter introduced user lists in late 2009, allowing users to be grouped according to meaningful topics or themes. Lists have since been adopted by media outlets as a means of organising content around news stories. Thus the curation of these lists is important - they should contain the key information gatekeepers and present a balanced perspective on a story. Here we address this list curation process from a
recommender systems perspective. We propose a variety of criteria for generating user list recommendations, based on content analysis, network analysis, and the "crowdsourcing" of existing user lists. We demonstrate that these types of criteria are often only successful for datasets with certain characteristics. To resolve this issue, we propose the aggregation of these dif ferent "views" of a news story on Twitter to produce more accurate user recommendations to support the curation process.

The Unanticipated Benefits of Content Curation - NTEN:Change's Content Curation Issue

The Unanticipated Benefits of Content Curation - NTEN:Change's Content Curation Issue | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it

Beth Kanter wrote a very complete and interesting piece in NTEN's latest edition of their quarterly journal for non-profit leaders. You have to download the journal but it's worth it and it's free (you just need to register). 

 

It's been fascinating for me to see how non-profits seem to embrace Social Media in general and Content Curation in particular - Beth of course being a key advocate in that move.

 

The broader take-away that I see for those of us in all sorts of organizations, as independant professionals or SMB-owners is the validation it brings to the model. When tightly-budgeted NPO's embrace a practice as a group, you can bet they're not wasting their scarce resources on a hype. They have to be efficient and as Beth puts it in the article: "Putting content curation into practice is part art form, part science, but mostly about daily practice. You don’t need to do it for hours, but 20 minutes every day will help you develop and hone the skills."

 

This is precisely where we see the opportunity with curation for professionals: building up a good practice that fits with one's daily routine and that -as Beth puts it - brings great "unexpected benefits".

Reduce Information Noise Through Social Curation and Collaborative Discovery: Calm Technology

Reduce Information Noise Through Social Curation and Collaborative Discovery: Calm Technology | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it

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.

Content Curation Could Be Your Most Powerful Community-Building Tool | Content Marketing Institute

Content Curation Could Be Your Most Powerful Community-Building Tool | Content Marketing Institute | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it

Susan McKittrick, an analyst with Patricia Seybold Group, wrote in this her article:

 

"We hear a lot about content curation these days. Some call it a top trend for 2012 and a must-see new technology for marketers.

 

A content curator assembles a quality collection of third-party and original content that is of keen interest to a particular audience, selects the best content for presentation, adds commentary valuable to the audience and publishes to the audience’s preferred channels. Content curation tools use technology to facilitate these steps.

 

Marketers use content curation to establish a reputation as a trusted resource in a particular area, to build an audience (that eventually buys) above the funnel, and to foster interaction with a community of people who share specific interests.

 

You will find a good example of content curation in action at www.cmo.com. Curators of this website draw on top quality content created by others combined with their own original content to present.

 

An enterprise content curation tool will:

- Help you find the best content;
- Make it fast and easy to select items and add commentary;
- Provide flexibility in presentation and distribution of curated content;
- Support the information consumer’s experience, through personalization and navigation;
- Report data marketers need to improve execution, demonstrate value and gain customer insight.


Some of the enterprise content curation tools you’ll want to consider are:

- Eqentia - http://www.eqentia.com
- HiveFire - http://www.getcurata.com
- Loud3r - http://www.loud3r.com

The Fallacy of Information Overload - Brian Solis

The Fallacy of Information Overload - Brian Solis | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it

As Clay Shirky once observed, “There’s no such thing as information overload — only filter failure.”
My take? “Information overload is a symptom of our desire to not focus on what’s important.” It’s a choice.
Perhaps said another way, information overload is a symptom of our inability to focus on what’s truly important or relevant to who we are as individuals, professionals, and as human beings. 

 

The addiction to not missing anything seems irrational but is part of our human nature. As any new medium of communication and expression, we will learn as we go as say Brian Solis. The internet is pretty young, and,we will step by step know how to use it for our own good. Curation is probably just starting to be necessary and curated the information we decide to access and digest a benefitial attitude that we have to make more instinctive. With heroes like the Scoop.it's community to lead the way

Why We're All Suddenly Obsessed With Pinterest

Why We're All Suddenly Obsessed With Pinterest | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it

It's a good question! The fact is that blogs are filled with articles about Pinterest. For my part, I am absolutely convinced that this kind of social media will wreak havoc among users... and you? [note mg]

 

It's addictive, fun, visually appealing, and easy, so it's no wonder Pinterest, the popular visual bookmarking site, has hooked millions of users. That said, the site’s growth (below) was fairly flat from its launch in early 2010 until September 2011. But since then, it’s simply been going gangbusters, begging the question--why now? Here are three reasons why we think it’s become so attractive.

 

1. Pinterest rides (and defines) a new trend: social relevance.

 

Pinterest is successfully riding a new trend wave in the social space, moving mechanisms for content sharing beyond connections (friends) and towards relevance, effectively broadening the social horizon for us content addicts.

<- This infographic seems a little simplistic. I don't really agree with the tools lined up. i think some tools are used in various areas and processes.  I also don't think that curation is only about visibility, it equally sits in execution and in relationships. It  is too simplistic, but I do think that being a curator will be essential to being successful in a connected world. So worth saving anyway. (JS)
