MyKLogica's curator insight, March 21, 11:07 AM

Personalmente, los denomino de formas diferentes, "Gestión" y "Curación" de contenidos, puesto que aunque en la gestión no se aporta el valor diferencial del punto de vista del curador, aún así es una gran labor la de seleccionar buen contenido y ayudar en su difusión.


Personally I call them differently as content "management" and "curation"; as though with management we haven´t the added value of the personal point of view of the curator, still it is a great job to find and select good, quality content.

i.e. Realty's curator insight, March 25, 1:06 PM

Are you creating value or noise?

Barbara Hart Radisavljevic's curator insight, March 26, 4:13 PM

Quality content curation takes time. It takes time to read sources before promoting them.

Antifragile: How to make an unstable world strong - opinion - 23 November 2012 - New Scientist

Antifragile: How to make an unstable world strong - opinion - 23 November 2012 - New Scientist | Living | Scoop.it

Can we exploit the fact that life is unpredictable, chaotic, full of shocks and disasters? Trader turned scholar Nassim Nicholas Taleb has a bold idea

In your new book you talk about things being "antifragile". What do you mean exactly?
When you ask people what is the opposite of fragile, they mostly answer something that is resilient or unbreakable - an unbreakable package would be robust. However, the opposite of fragile is something that actually gains from disorder. In the book, I classify things into fragile, robust or antifragile.

Can you give me some examples?
Nature builds things that are antifragile. In the case of evolution, nature uses disorder to grow stronger. Occasional starvation or going to the gym also makes you stronger, because you subject your body to stressors and gain from them. Another example is the restaurant industry. It benefits from the fact that individual restaurants are fragile by exploiting their mistakes as it tries to figure out why a particular restaurant went bust. Trial and error is an antifragile activity.
