Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, June 25, 2013 6:19 AM

Our online or digital identity matters. Whaf if the image we portray of it consists of 'scooped' or 'pinned' materials only? Our identity then is a borrowed one, not even reflecting who we are but who we aspire to be. Of course, curation in the pre-online age was about creation too and so it still should be in the digital age (see also my blog about a year of content creation http://tiny.cc/ncc8yw) (@pbsloep)
