Curation Collisions Create SURPRISE & Surprise Matters
We are OLD even when we are young now. There is no way to remain YOUNG for very long with so much information chasing us. The next generation lives on their phones the one after may be searching the web and emailing as they look through their Google Glass.
Scoop.it CEO @Guillaume Decugismade an interesting offhand suggestion about curation to me a few weeks ago. Guillaume noted how important curation becomes when we slouch toward the point when everything that ever NEEDS to be written has been written.
Guillaume means what I call "rich snippet" curation or content curation where the hand of the curator is present and accounted for. This is the kind of curation many great teacher helped me learn over the past few years - a skill that feels increasingly important in a way that reminds me of how I felt about SEO before there was a new sheriff in town named Navneet Panda.
We learn best by DOING and this GooglePlus post says THANKS to kind and patient teachers who you should FOLLOW on Scoopit and learn content curaiton too:
Brian comment's - I would add @Martin (Marty) Smith himself to this list , not only is he a great curator but is also a fantastic writer who has inspired me to research and learn how to improve my writing skills. He is a marketing expert that is giving back to the community in so many ways.
