As with many new technologies, there is much to be learned in the realm of content curation. One thing that Dennis learned only in the practice of curation is that it could very well be the future if search. When he joined Scoop.it, Dennis did not expect to find "such a rich and expert community of searchers." He knew that he would have a place to share all of his content and build a resource for his audience, but what he found in this practice, he never could have expected.
With his continued use of Scoop.it and curation, Dennis has found that he can rely on other curators as a vital source of information discovery. He even chooses Scoop.it over other tools as a search engine! What makes Scoop.it unique for search is that all of the content you will find is selected by thoughtful editors with an expertise on the topic that is being searched for. Dennis has found that the quality of search results on Scoop.it has been unmatched by a regular search engine algorithm because of this. He has found numerous pieces of relevant content intelligently selected by other curators, as well as being discovered for the content that he has curated.
