This looks like an interesting and promising tool for content curators of different kinds. Silk specializes in extracting data from existing sources in novel ways by simplifying the way we query and access it.
This is an interesting comparison and I think it's a good start....... search and curation continue to evolve and there's lots more to this story, stay tuned...........
Curation platforms vs Search engines Nowadays, search engines like Google are essential tools for every Internet work. But are they the best place to search anything? We believe that a manual...
Search engines present a list of content, ranked by a relative relevance between the results. Curation platforms like Bundlr present themed groups of content, usually ranked by popularity, but always highlighting the author of the selection.

s can filter. Only humans can curate.When a human curates, she does three things. She selects something (or things) from a larger group. She organises those selections cohesively. And she arranges to present those things in such a way that people find it easy to engage with those things.
What I thought I’d do in this post is to look at all this a little more closely, all in the context of the social enterprise.
First, let’s look at selection.
The simplest and commonest form of selection in social networks is the asymmetric follow (a phrase I first heard used by James Governor). You follow someone or something, you subscribe to that someone or something. Elect to receive updates, alerts, reports. That doesn’t mean they follow you.
