Curators: A Herculean Task Is Ahead of You - and Be Careful

Curators: A Herculean Task Is Ahead of You - and Be Careful | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

Steven Rosenbaum has an interesting article on Fast Company, outlining the reasons why curation is here to stay and the importance that curators will play in your information consumption diet.

 

He writes: "...So anyone who steps up and volunteers to curate in their area of knowledge and passion is taking on a Herculean task.

 

They're going to stand between the web and their readers, using all of the tools at their disposal to "listen" to the web, and then pull out of the data stream nuggets of wisdom, breaking news, important new voices, and other salient details.

 

It's real work, and requires a tireless commitment to being engaged and ready to rebroadcast timely material.

 

While there may be an economic benefit for being a "thought leader" and "trusted curator," it's not going to happen overnight.

 

Which is to say, being a superhero is often a thankless job.

 

The growth in content, both in terms of pure volume and the speed of publishing, has raised some questions about what best practices are in the curation space."

 

He also has some pretty straightforward advice on what, as a curator, you should never do:

 

"1. If you don't add context, or opinion, or voice and simply lift content, it's stealing.

 

2. If you don't provide attribution, and a link back to the source, it's stealing.

 

3. If you take a large portion of the original content, it's stealing.

 

4. If someone asks you not to curate their material, and you don't respect that request, it's stealing.

 

5. Respect published rights. If images don't allow creative commons use, reach out to the image creator--don't just grab it and ask questions later."

 

And he definitely has a point on all of these. 

 

Recommended. 7/10

Dear Robin, good job ! I try as much as I can to give value to articles I post on Scoop.it but I don't think this is the majority of curators. I am doing curation the "old way" like when I was a researcher: first read relevant literature about my topic then summarize, analyse and draw conclusion or formulate new hypothesis. But that was before the explosion of the information overload online. As far a plagiarism and stealing, this is unfortunately common practice on the web, so many people "forget" to mention their sources. At least it is better to be copied than not been read at all because at the end your expertise is showing-up via your work-Anne

Does it really matter where children grew up as long as they feel secure, loved and listened to?

 

I do think living in very different cultures and learning multiple languages in a loving family environment helps children to gain self-confidence, be able to connect with people from various backgrounds and actually be more open to innovative ideas.

 

I like the parallel with Einstein's life and agree

It’s terrifying how important your Klout score has become

It’s terrifying how important your Klout score has become | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

We've heard a couple of stories in recent weeks about startups that choose celebrity investors over seasoned VCs because they wanted someone with a big online audience who could help attract new users and press to their product.

 

Comment: 

 

Well, I would not like to work for a company that judges me on my Klout score simply because it does NOT measure the final objective of using social media : BRINGING MORE BUSINESS !


How many new customers do you get ? What is your ROI in term of your time=money, you spend to maintain a high Klout score instead of talking to potential clients and learn about your market to offer what people want to buy from you ?

The "Bitch In The Boardroom" Stereotype: Women Speak Out About Success And Likability

The "Bitch In The Boardroom" Stereotype: Women Speak Out About Success And Likability | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
If you're shrinking from success in order to be well liked, some of America's most prominent women have some very useful advice for you.

 

 The most important thing to remember each day is that you’re not in business to appeal to everyone.

 

“Success comes from knowing your audience, and building something they will love.

 

"I'd be less concerned with what people are calling me and more concerned with what my customers and colleagues think about the way business is getting done. Those are the people who matter.”

Life as a Bilingual: Speech Discrimination in Bilingual Infants-Psychology Today

Life as a Bilingual: Speech Discrimination in Bilingual Infants-Psychology Today | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

I have summarized and commented the findings of an interesting article “Speech Discrimination in Bilingual Infants” in Psychology Today by François Grosjean.

 

What I have found interesting in this article is the fact that 9 month-old American infants exposed to Mandarin language via direct interactions with  chinese infants recognized the sounds while children exposed to same amount of Mandarin but through DVDs did not learn. 

 

Food for thought in the digital age, what about learning online, is it as effective as learning in classrooms ? The debate is open.
