I LOVE this list -- because it is totally different than what you might expect from yet another article with a storytelling list!

Here the author Dorit Sasson focuses on YOUR relationship with the story you want to tell -- and how to get emotionally clear about it before you ever tell it.

Now why in the heck is this important? Because stories are all about conveying emotion and engaging emotions along the way to delivering a key message and meaning.

But if you are not clear about your emotional connection to the story, chances are you will flop when sharing it. You won't connect to your audience. 

So go grab this list. Check off what you can. Work on what you need to. Get way better at storytelling.

The Curated Web

The Curated Web | MEDIACLUB |

Brittany Morin wrote this piece for the Huffington Post


I thought this was good article, great observations and a real grasp on curation and how to do it effectively. I'm going to refrain from reposting all the gems in this post  and instead give a commentary on something she said which I thought was a bit shortsighted.  


Here's what caught my attention:


"I believe that the people best poised to be curators of the Internet are those from the Facebook Generation -- the first generation of native web citizens, mainly people in their 20s or early 30s who have grown up with the web and can navigate, scour, synthesize and then publish the best of what's out there on a daily basis because they practically live online. It is our generation that will also be able to more easily understand where new opportunities lie because they can quickly pinpoint where the gaps are in content, services, and products."


My response:


She is right that people in their 20's or 30's are indeed well equipped to curate the web especially for their own age group as well as others for all the reasons she states.


Having said that, there are people of all ages who have been on the web for years, myself included, who have built relationships and have the ability to spot trends, gaps and potential opportunities. I seriously doubt that people in that age group know what people in their 40's, 50's & 60's might need in a trusted source or have access or the ability to ferret out every potential opportunity on the web. I would be careful about making global statements like that.


**What if people of all ages contributed to a topic together, can you imagine the collective intelligence that could come from that?


What will set a good curator apart from a person who just aggregates links is the context they can add.  Their perspective will have been gained through the humility and wisdom of life experience and can add great richness to the original content.  To be sure, I have met many wonderful GenYers who have these traits in abundance, but this is one area where a few extra years and a few extra miles can help.


Content is the new currency of the web, it is meant to be a door opener, to invite others into the conversation, building thought leadership and authority. The more people that contribute by giving comments or adding another level of context, not only does it add to our knowledge but it can build community.


I think there is an enormous opportunity for anyone who has the passion, knowledge expertise and committment to select the very best content, fact check for accuracy and is willing to put in the time to learn how to curate succesfully.

Quality curation is not based on age gruoups but on engagement, openness, knowledge, context and a lot of other stuff - but claiming that a curators age is something of particular interest is rubbish to me.

Hi Ove, As you know I agree with you - curation is moving towards "collective intelligence" it's a wonderful time to expand our knowledge, build community and who knows what lies beyond the horizon.

Report: The Rise of Digital Influence and Why You Should Care

Report: The Rise of Digital Influence and Why You Should Care | MEDIACLUB |

This piece and report was done by Brian Solis .  Brian has done an outstanding job of helping us to understand the rocky road of social media/business and this is no exception. Happy anniversary Brian! It's unbelievable it's already a year that you've been Principal Analyst of Altimeter Group, great job.


Those of us who are involved with social networks are already aware of Klout, Kred, PeerIndex and many others that are yet to come down the pike. Some people don't pay attention, others wish these services would be more transparent about how they measure our standing in the social community. No matter where you stand on this issue, it's not going away but becoming more important than ever. In this piece, Brian gives us some valuable insights and takeaways (slideshare) that is very important for your business now and in the future.



Here's what caught my attention:


Whether we know it or not, our social activity now contributes to our stature within each network.


**New services such as Klout, PeerIndex among many others not only measure who you know, what you say, and what you do, they attempt to score or rank your ability to influence those to whom you’re connected.


**As a result, social network users are now starting to rethink how they connect and communicate to improve their stature within each network. 


**At the same time, brands are starting to take notice of those services also help organizations identify individuals who are both connected and relevant to help expand reach into new media and markets.
