Curation is becoming an increasingly important term and for good reason: the online world is increasingly messy, muddled and full of blind alleys.
Search used to be the best way to navigate online but today it is only one part of an Internet user's dashboard.
Finding things is fine if you know what to look for, but search is increasingly less effective in judging the quality of links, or putting those links into a context.
So what is curation?
Curation is a person or persons, engaged in the act of choosing and presenting things related to a specific topic and context.
