Curation and the Questions No One Is Asking

Curation and the Questions No One Is Asking | Digitale Curator | Scoop.it

Yes, curation wouldn't exist without creation, admits Mark Armstrong, the founder of Longreads and also a team member of Pocket.

 

But, he goes on, there are interesting questions - and perhaps more even more interesting answers - that highlights the value of Curation.

 

As he concludes, every one is a curator - a claim we won't disagree with at Scoop.it : "There is no “us vs. them.” There’s only “we.” So we should all start working harder to have some constructive conversations about how we improve the model."

Information Overload Is Not Unique To Digital Age : NPR

The overload of the print revolution led to indexes, reference books, editors, authors, classification systems. 17 minute 48 second audio interview with author of "Too Much to Know" Managing Scholarly Information Before the Modern Age" -- Howard

 

"It is a constant complaint: We're choking on information. The flood of data on the Web has reached mind boggling proportions, and it shows no signs of stopping. But wait, says Harvard professor Ann Blair -- this is not a new condition."

17 Tips To Help You Become Better At Content Curation

17 Tips To Help You Become Better At Content Curation | Digitale Curator | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article: 

"Over the past few years I must have heard the phrase ‘everyone is a publisher nowadays’ a thousand times or more. It’s largely accurate, due to the rise of social media, but I think we are mainly ‘curators’, as opposed to ‘publishers’.

 

Content curation is something that many of us will be familiar with, even if we don’t think of ourselves as curators. We instinctively find and share interesting content with our personal and professional networks. We follow others who share the kind of links that engage and entertain.

 

Here are my 17 tips to help you become even better at content curation, with one eye on Twitter:

 

1) Set up some feeds

2) Make the most of email alerts

3) Get to grips with Twitter Search

4) Use advanced search queries

5) Follow the 70/30 rule

6) Find the right tools for the job

7) Own a niche

8) Read, read, read!

9) Write, write, write!

10) Timing is crucial

11) Aggregate the good stuff

12) Tune in to the right people

13) Mix up your tweets

14) Don't be afraid of the detail

15) Consider repeating yourself

16) Try to avoid the obvious

17) Use a notebook

The Connected Life: Taking A Breath For Conscious Computing

Linda Stone was one of the primary sources for my book, 

http://www.rheingold.com/netsmart -- Howard  

 

"Eighty percent of us seem to have it. I broke the story about it in early 2008 on the Huffington Post, and called the phenomenon, "email apnea." Later in 2008, in talks and interviews, I referred to it interchangeably as "email apnea" and also, as "screen apnea."

Definition: Shallow breathing or breath holding while doing email, or while working or playing in front of a screen.

While we have a greater tendency toward email apnea or screen apnea, while doing email and texting on laptops and smartphones, we are at risk for breath holding or shallow breathing in front of any screen, any time. Not only does this increase stress levels, it impacts our attitude, our sense of emotional well-being, and our ability to work effectively."

YouTube Auto-Curates In-Demand Topics with Auto-Generated Channels

YouTube Auto-Curates In-Demand Topics with Auto-Generated Channels | Digitale Curator | Scoop.it

Robin Good: YouTube auto-generated channels are channels that are automatically created by dedicated algorithms to collect trending and popular videos by topic.


 


"Auto generated channels act like user channels in that you can subscribe to them and stay updated on new videos.


 


In addition, auto generated channels provide:


 


-> The ability to subscribe and get regular updates about this topic on YouTube on your feed


 


-> A way to find other channels related to this topic


 


-> More context about this topic from Wikipedia or other sources


 


YouTube algorithmically determines the central topics in a video and then uses that information to develop great collections of videos for any topic of interest.


 


These channels do not convey any editorial opinion.


 


Example: http://www.youtube.com/topic/1ww-xJuh0ew/digital-curation ;

Are You A Content Curator? 5 Best Practices For Content Curation

Are You A Content Curator? 5 Best Practices For Content Curation | Digitale Curator | Scoop.it

This is an article by Steven Rosenbaum and published by Mashable. Excerpted from it:

 

"Good content curation isn’t as simple as pushing a share button. 

If you’re a curator here are five best practices to consider.

 

1. Be Part of the Content Ecosystem:

Be part of the content ecosystem, not just a re-packager of it. 

Created, contributed, and collected — the three ‘c’s is a strong content mix that has a measurable impact. Why? Because your visitors don’t want to hunt around the web for related material. Once they find a quality, curated collection, they’ll stay for related offerings.

 

2. Follow a Schedule:

Audiences expect some regularity, and they’ll reward you for it. 

Consistency and regularity will also bring you new users, and help you grow a loyal base of members who appreciate your work.

 

3. Embrace Multiple Platforms:

Today content consumers get their information on the platform of their choosing. That means you should consider posting short bursts on Tumblr, images on Pinterest, video on YouTube, and community conversations on Facebook.

 

4. Engage and Participate:

Having a voice as a curator means more than creating and curating your own work. Make sure you’re giving back by reading others and commenting on their posts.

To recommend material that you really think merits their attention.

 

5. Share. Don’t Steal:

Take the time to give attribution, link backs, and credit. The sharing economy works because we’re each sharing our audiences, and providing the value of our endorsements.

The important thing to realize is that we’re increasingly living in a world of information overload. So when people choose to listen to you it’s because you’re able to separate signal from noise. You provide a clear, contextually relevant voice within the topic or topics that you create and curate."

A Curated Introduction To Curation by Andy Dickinson

Robin Good: Here's another good example of curation at work. Andy Dickinson, has used Storify to create a "curated reference" of his lecture about curation for his first year undergraduate students. 

 

The "storified" reference contains links to tools, video clips, and many contributions which allow any learner interested in this topic, to follow a selected path from which it is possible to wander off and explore in many interesting directions.

 

Useful. Informative. Inspirational. 8/10

Scoop.it Helps Curators Find Each Other: Visual Search and New Features Help Your News To Get Discovered

Scoop.it Helps Curators Find Each Other: Visual Search and New Features Help Your News To Get Discovered | Digitale Curator | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Scoop.it has just launched a new set of features that help curators find more easily other content by introducing a new visual search feature, while enhancing individual post display, sharing options and addig a dedicated user search option.

 

The new features, are definitely a plus providing some long due oxygen to some of the more asphitic Scoop.it areas: news and curators discovery.

 

There is a lot more to do on this front, but these apear to be definitely some good initial steps in the right direction.

 

I am particularly fond of the new individual post display and layout, which truly expands the opportunities to lean more about related the topics, comments and the curator behind the channel.

 

Good joob Scoop.it team!

 

Go check all the new features in your account, or dwell in a bit more details and screenshots about these four new features: http://blog.scoop.it/en/2012/03/15/be-discovered/ ;

Wanna be a Super Hero? Be a curator ! Steve Rosenbaum's favorite trend at SxSWi 2012

If you've followed curation as a trend, you've heard of Steve Rosenbaum. His book Curation Nation was instrumental last year in making curation and curators emerge as a trend and as an important group.

 

As Steve puts it, curators are the Web's super heroes.

 

But as Steve says, it's just starting and this is juts the beginning. And from what we can see in Austin this year, he's darn right!

How ITV News Is Curating Content With New Live Streams Of News

How ITV News Is Curating Content With New Live Streams Of News | Digitale Curator | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

"When ITV News launched a new website two months ago the site started presenting news in a way that was radically different from before.

 

They came up with a “digital native” news format that includes tweets and other social media content from the broadcaster’s correspondents, experts and eye witnesses.

 

Jason Mills, editor of web development for ITV News, told Journalism.co.uk:

"The thinking behind the site is that it’s about news now. News is a live process, news continuously comes in and stories develop the whole time. So what we are trying to do is to tell that news in real time.

People now are used to consuming content in a stream, from Twitter to Facebook timelines, and we wanted to take that concept and adapt it to all news.

 

We have a small number of curators to the site and they are curating content, the vast majority of which comes from our correspondents, our producers in the field, and the news desks.

The curators are then using things like Twitter to add to the telling of that story as well.

Twitter is a fantastic way of adding value to existing stories. What are people saying out there, what is the community saying, what are experts saying out there?..."

 

A great example is this story of the death of Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees, which combines tweets from singers Gary Barlow and Lenny Kravitz, TV footage and a written statement from the former Bee Gees manager. It appears more like a curated Storify than a traditional copy-only news story.

Take Your Curation Mobile With The New Scoop.it Android App

Take Your Curation Mobile With The New Scoop.it Android App | Digitale Curator | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: After Scoop.it for iPhone (December 2011), Content Curation and Publishing Platform Scoop.it announced its Android app which will bring mobile curation to all Android users.

 

Excerpted from article:

"Much like the iPhone app, the Android app will allow you to leverage the suggestions you’ve configured for your topic as well as suggestions from other users. The publishing window is almost identical to that of the website and, of course, you will have all of your sharing options.

 

But, what’s the best thing about the Scoop.it mobile app for Android? Well, we’ve taken simplicity a step further as the App adds Scoop.it to your browser’s native sharing menu. Now, to curate content you discovered while browsing, you no longer need to copy and paste the URL from your phone’s browser or install the bookmarklet. Content can be posted to Scoop.it by simply clicking your browser’s share button.

 

And just like its iPhone counterpart, the app allows to you do perform essentially all of the tasks of curating your topics without telling anyone you did it from your phone. Whether your posts are published from your phone or from your computer, your topic pages will always sport the same fluid magazine layout..."

"Dave Pell writes what is perhaps the world’s best email newsletter" writes Hamish McKenzie on Pandodaily.

Interesting story that shows the power a human curator can have in the age of Twitter and technology domination. The interview is a must read as he goes on to describe his role.

He concludes: "So we’re in this weird cycle now where we’re being overwhelmed by technology and we’re looking for a technological solution to that. Ultimately the solution for managing technology is going to be human. I don’t think technology can solve its own downside itself."

"...For Wolfram, the short answer to the question above, as it relates to education, seems to be: More. By doing the basic understanding, data-gathering, and fact-finding for students, computation frees teachers to work with them on problem-solving and deeper understanding.
