Robin Good's curator insight, December 10, 2013 4:23 PM


Back in Feberuary of this year Debbie Millman has interviewed Maria Popova, the curator of Brain PickingsLiterary Jukebox and the inventor of Curator's Code.


Find out what Maria thinks curation is all about (How do we make sense of the world we through stuff and through objects - whether physical or metaphysical) and why she has become so interested in it.


Maria is a fantastic and highly prolific content curator producing three original posts and between 60 to 70 tweets a day.


Specific interview points I suggest you listen to: 


-> 24':30" for combinatorial creativity and the first recorded examples of content curation as a form authroship


-> 27':16" Curation - Do you define yourself a curator?


-> 28':00" Curators don't design, they organize


-> 28':50" What is curation


-> 29':19" Curation and pattern recognition


-> 37':45" The importance of discovery - why attribution matters

The Collage Tells The Story and The Curator Skillset That's Yet To Come

The Collage Tells The Story and The Curator Skillset That's Yet To Come | Social Networker | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Krishna Bharat, creator of Google News and now Principle Scientist at Google, spoke at the News World Summit in Bangalore, India.

 

His focus was on the future of news and on the impotance of curation as well as on what the news will look and "feel" like.

 

He rightly suggests to news teams to "provide guides to content", not just new content and to deliver information in ways that entice the reader in multiple ways, while providing lots of good and well referenced information. 

 

Excerpted from the original Poynter.org article: "As consumers have access to vast troves of news information from all over the world, Bharat urged news editorial teams to provide a guide to content, not just produce content.

 

“Creation and curation should be the fundamental activities for your editorial team,” he said.


Bharat said news in the future will become more of an app-like experience, as users adapt the experience to themselves, and as newsrooms provide a more multi-dimensional experience that includes more images and maps.

 

“The collage tells the story.

 

This will create a skill set that doesn’t exist yet.”

 

And also:

 

"The winning experience of the future is fast, tactile, original content, with access to many reputable sources in an appealing narrative form,” Bharat said.

 

“It is delivered in an appealing, narrative form, encompasses a broader definition of news, and involves audiences with a stake in the story or with expertise."

 

Must-read. 9/10

Brain Pickings (http://www.brainpickings.org/) is a site that exemplifies these principles.

Thanks for curating this article. I'm also noticing the rise of data visualization as a skill for journalists (and others) - might add that creation, curation, AND visualization should be the fundamental activities .... and when I say visualization - not just pretty pictures, but insights. http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/datablog/2012/may/31/data-journalism-awards-winners
