CURATING THE FUTURE

CURATING THE FUTURE | REVIEW BLOG NEWS | Scoop.it
CURATING THE FUTURE BY Emma Watermann| Arts Hub A curator used to be a caretaker of objects. But now curators work with words, images and ideas often in the virtual world. No longer confined to...
BigO's insight:

No longer confined to museums and galleries, ‘curator’ is now a word that is entering the mainstream to describe anybody who sorts and organises information - which is practically everybody in the digital age.  The traditional role of the curator with an expertise in a genre or period,  a set of white gloves and mastery of taxonomyis being squeezed by new claimants on the title. Everyone 'curates’ their Pinterest page just as they build their own newspaper from their Twitter feed.

Finally what are your advices concerning this tool ?
Robin Good's comment, September 28, 2013 1:56 PM
Hi David, Keeeb is a good tool if you need to collect and organize web resources, images or video. It's better than Pinterest functionality-wise but it does not have its audience. So my advice is try it out and see if it does what you need to do.

Kickoff - Chat and Tasks for Teams

Kickoff - Chat and Tasks for Teams | REVIEW BLOG NEWS | Scoop.it
academiPad's insight:

This new collaborative task management app for Mac and iOS looks interesting. Think of it like a blend between iChat and Wunderlist/Things. There are lots of these collaborative task management apps on the web, but they ask for monthly subscriptions. This one is a one-time payment. A large one with about $25, but only once.

 

I can see this be a good tool if you are working with co-authors in a different town, or for students working on group projects. Its only Apple so far, unfortunately.

Prezi isn't the only challenger of Keynote / Powerpoint any longer. Bunkr looks interesting, but I worry if this is not further transforming us into a cut'n'paste culture.

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.

House Talk: Are you stuck if you overpaid on a home? | REVIEW BLOG NEWS | Scoop.it
A successful winner in a bidding war now feels remorse.

 

Q. I got caught in a bidding war a couple of months ago, and think I overpaid for my house. I paid cash, so I didn't have an appraisal. In retrospect, my real-estate agent only seemed to be interested in her commission, not in helping me get the best deal. Am I stuck now? Is there anything I can do to lessen the pain?

Presentación en Slide publicada hace unos días por Steve Buttry que enumera todas las situaciones en las que es posible correr el riesgo de ser acusado de plagio.

La presentación es un resumen de consejos para periodistas online que tienen que lidiar a diario con la adición de enlaces de referencia, la concesión de créditos y la atribución de autoría y evitar ser acusados de plagio.

Un buen consejo que no debe tomarse a la ligera
