Leah Lesley Christensen's curator insight, December 2, 2013 1:37 PM

Never heard of it - must be worth sharing :)

Robin Good's insight:Introducing content curation to someone who doesn't know anything about it is not always an easy task. There are so many different articles, opinions, definitions and recommendations about content curation that it is quite difficult for someone just getting familiar with the topic, to easily find out where to start and what to trust. To help out anyone needing to support the explanation of content curation to others, here are five comprehensive resource collections I have put together over the course of the last year. 1) Content Curation - Definitions a collection of the best and most useful definitions of what content curation is http://bundlr.com/b/content-curation-definition 2) Content Curation - What is it? Video Intros 30+ short video clips that introduce the need, practice and purpose of content curation http://huzzaz.com/collection/content-curation-what-is-it 3) Content Curation Visualized 110+ infographics, visuals, illustrations and diagrams explaining what content curation is www.pinterest.com/robingood/content-curation-visualized/ 4) Content Curation Tools Directory - Tools Directory 100+ of the best content curation tools organized in a directory for immediate access http://contentcuration.zeef.com/ 5) Content Curation Tools Supermap - Tools Collection 600+ content curation, discovery, filtering and publishing tools organized by categories for doing content curation http://bit.ly/ContentCurationToolsSupermap All free to use and share.

New York for foodies eBook (Amazon Kindle Store)

New York for foodies eBook (Amazon Kindle Store) | Reading Pool | Scoop.it

Perhaps there’s nothing wrong with returning to the stalwart comfort food of Chipotle, but there is so much more for a foodie to explore outside the Manhattan bubble. To discover the kind of rich ethnic cuisine that thrives in New York’s boroughs, take a trip out to Jackson Heights in Queens. This non affluent residential area is home to many Indian, Colombian and Mexican immigrants, and you’ll feel more like you’re traveling the world on a roundtrip than you just got out of the most famous island ever.

Many well-meaning writers and editors condemn “the reason why” and “the reason is because” for the crime of redundancy. But that stance (or, at least, part of it) is shaky.
