Leah Lesley Christensen's curator insight, December 2, 2013 1:37 PM

Never heard of it - must be worth sharing :)

Robin Good's insight:Introducing content curation to someone who doesn't know anything about it is not always an easy task. There are so many different articles, opinions, definitions and recommendations about content curation that it is quite difficult for someone just getting familiar with the topic, to easily find out where to start and what to trust. To help out anyone needing to support the explanation of content curation to others, here are five comprehensive resource collections I have put together over the course of the last year. 1) Content Curation - Definitions a collection of the best and most useful definitions of what content curation is http://bundlr.com/b/content-curation-definition 2) Content Curation - What is it? Video Intros 30+ short video clips that introduce the need, practice and purpose of content curation http://huzzaz.com/collection/content-curation-what-is-it 3) Content Curation Visualized 110+ infographics, visuals, illustrations and diagrams explaining what content curation is www.pinterest.com/robingood/content-curation-visualized/ 4) Content Curation Tools Directory - Tools Directory 100+ of the best content curation tools organized in a directory for immediate access http://contentcuration.zeef.com/ 5) Content Curation Tools Supermap - Tools Collection 600+ content curation, discovery, filtering and publishing tools organized by categories for doing content curation http://bit.ly/ContentCurationToolsSupermap All free to use and share.

Alison Antonelli's curator insight, December 4, 2013 9:33 AM

The human popluation debate will always seem to be an issue. One can almost assume that the less developed countries are going to have the highest popluation but the most problems as well. A country that is classified as less developed are most definitely going to have low incomes due to the low number of jobs available, poor human development because there isn't enough people to be taking care of each other. 

Victoria McNamara's curator insight, December 11, 2013 11:28 AM

By looking at this data sheet you can see that the worlds population will increase by the millions in 2050. These populations will increase in areas that are already very populated and in areas that are not so heavily populated yet. 

Lona Pradeep Parad's curator insight, May 28, 7:00 PM

This is an interactive map where you can click the year you wish and see what the population is or will be. it allows a person to observe and understand population growth better.

The Value of List-Making: Three Traits To Make Yours Stand Out From The Rest

Robin Good's curator insight, September 28, 2013 7:10 AM


Beth Kanter, one of the key go-to-person for communication strategy when it comes to NGOs, provides a useful reminder of the value of creating lists for content marketing objectives alongside some good links to list-making examples and list-building tools. 



My comment: One thing that differentiates good "lists" from bad ones, is not often visibile by looking just at the surface.


Good lists in my view are characterized by these three traits: 


1) Short - long lists are tiring and not very useful


2) Categorized - "groups" help scanning and finding what you're looking for


3) Commented - excerpts from about pages as list item descriptions are not very useful, as what makes a real difference in a list is your insight, opinion or evaluation into why that item is in that list. 


Without these elements in fact, just about anyone can take a search tool and assemble the "Best of" whatever software category in a ridicule amount of time, while not really providing anything useful or reliable. 


That's the difference between a list and a curated list.


The list "as is" makes you work more to check and verify everything that's in the list, while the curated one saves you time in finding or reminding you rapidly what is exactly that you need.



Useful. Resourceful. 7/10

The Future of Music Curation: Where Are We Headed

Robin Good's curator insight, September 13, 2013 10:13 AM


People want recommendations from people that have their same tastes and values. Human curation is going to make a big difference in how people are going to discover, appreciate and get in love with new music and artists.


From the original article: "In this episode of the Deep Dive, Cortney Harding and Kyle Bylin discuss music curation with outspoken tech exec and startup founder J Herskowitz."


"Curation is a topic that just keeps coming up in the press. Spotify buys Tunigo. 8tracks revamps its website. Songza introduces a paid tier. And Beats Music poaches several high-level people in preparation for a U.S. launch. Meanwhile, Rhapsody and Google Play are talking about how they have been using humans to curate all along.


What does all of this mean? Where might music streaming services take curation next?"


Takeaways:


  • Individual curators may have an edge over crowd-curation.
     
  • Many different types of curation being used.
     
  • It remains to be seen whether expert music curators will win over talented unkown amateur curators.
     
  • Likely, these different approaches may live all side-by-side, satisfying different needs.
     
  • Mood- and experience-curation is a strong emerging trend besides traditional music styles and genres

  • Curated music playlists to enhance specific life activities 


Interesting discussion. Recommended listening. 7/10

Robin Good's insight:


If you are looking for some good inspiring examples of how content and news curation can be put to good use, Bob Geller has published this past spring a useful article reviewing five different content curation approaches
that are very successful.

The five sites reviewed in this article "have all been tremendously successful in leveraging third party content, optimizing it, adding value, and building audience. They range from the famous to the obscure. There are some common threads, yet each has a different formula."


Useful. Resourceful. Good examples. 7/10
