3) From reading your paper to bullet points

4) If icebreakers needed, must be relevant to the talk

5) Role of visuals

6) Know your audience (local culture etc.)

7) Practice (and never underestimate your audience)

8) Dealing with difficult questions (humour, sidelining, postponing, bouncing...)

Who Should You Follow Back and Why? - Curatti | Pedagogy | Scoop.it
If you're just getting started with social networking, here's a hard-earned lesson many veteran online networkers are still coming to terms with. Don’t follow back on social networks, just because.

I follow because I come across a great mix of revelant information I would not find otherwise.

Great Content Curators See Patterns Others Don't So Curation Is Highly Disruptive

Great Content Curators See Patterns Others Don't So Curation Is Highly Disruptive | Pedagogy | Scoop.it
What Is Content Curation Curation is an active filtering of the web’s infinite content and it may be the most disruptive Internet marketing tactic. Curators do more than simply assign meta value via categorization.

Disruptive & Exploding Content Curation
Wish I could tell you I plan to write sentences that will resonate and define something like content curation in a helpful way. The plan is to LOVE what I do and want to share it as often and as many ways as possible almost everything after that is accident (lol). 

Content curation is about to explode. It has too, as Scoop.it's CEO Guillaume noted a good argument could be made that all content that ever needs to be created already has. This means the shift is to the curators.

I read something attributed to uber-curator Maria Popova. She supposedly said each time an Internet marketer uses the word "curator" real curators kill a kitten. Popova was being dramatic, but I take her point. 

Our "curation" is digital curation - the active filtering, theming and organizing of a monster fire hose of content pointed at all of us. Our ability to read and make sense of the world may mean we are all "curators". A contemporary life requires curation. 

Wish I could plan my day to create another piece of content as well received and helpful as this Curatti.com post, but it doesn't work that way. Better to focus on digging the ditch that needs digging than worrying too much about "viral marketing" or "legacy" content (is my thinking :). M
