Information Filtering and Curation as the Basis for New Business Models

Information Filtering and Curation as the Basis for New Business Models | Film Futures | Scoop.it

[I've rescooped this from Robin Good and Jan Bergmans. I think the commentary below is interesting and informative. For filmmakers, I would say that your film isn't the only piece of content that can be curated. Any content that you create as a filmmaker can be curated, whether that's your tweets, photos, doodles, etc. But also any content that is related to your film, filmmaking style or influences, your outlook on the world is content that can be curated for your audiences. Fans/audiences will appreciate having a better picture of the mind that brought them your film. Whether you use Scoop It!, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, whatever, don't forget that you have to power to create context for your creations. - Zan]

This great piece was written by Tim Kastelle - it is one of the best articles on curation, the observations and insights take this to a whole new level. So much to digest, lots to ponder about the possibilities that await us in 2012 and beyond.

 

Here are some of the highlights:

 

**"We create economic value out of information when we figure out an effective strategy that includes aggregating, filtering and connecting." 

 

**"Filtering is what helps us deal with the vast amount of information available to us."

 

"...the real question is, how do we design filters that let us find our way through this particular abundance of information?

 

****And, you know, my answer to that question has been: the only group that can catalog everything is everybody." (Clay Shirky)

 

**We try to filter information so that we end up with something that is relevant to us – it helps us learn something, it helps us solve a problem, it helps us develop a new hypothesis about the world around us.

 

**These are all connections – and this is what really drives value creation.

 

**However, we can’t connect without some filtering going on. So filtering is important, and it’s a term that includes several different sub-types. I can think of at least five forms of filtering.

 

...we can use these ideas about filtering to help with business model innovation by changing where it takes place in the value network.

 

**One of Shirky’s points is that since Gutenberg, the economic logic of publishing required publishers (of books, music, movies) to act as filters in order to maximise their investment.

 

**As publishing and filtering has shifted out to human networks, publishers no longer need to fill this role.

 

**Someone (or some network) needs to, and since that creates value, it’s something that can perhaps be monetised.

With the increasing need for relevant content, Discovery engines are becoming tools that save time and encourage effective information consumption.

 

Content discovery engines are similar to, but different from search engines.

 

Instead of simply providing results for a specific search query, discovery engines allow users to monitor topic-specific developments.

 

There are many types of discovery engines, and the technology that drives them and the way they present information differs greatly.

 

Why Are Content Discovery Engines Gaining Importance?

 

**more people recognize their potential to transform information consumption.
