janlgordon's curator insight, November 9, 2013 11:10 AM

Angela Dunn has written a great piece on one of my favorite topics, curation - it was the lead post on our launh of Curatti last night.


What makes a good curator?


"You need to have the eye of an editor, a sense of taste like a chef, and your own unique Point of View. It is this Point of View – your taste – that can lead to authority and influence".


Jan Gordon:

 

Curators who are driven by passion and purpose will be very important to the business community in their chosen niche - it's crucial that we preserve this information for the future. That is why the future of curation is definitely evergreen.


Here are some highlights that caught my attention:


The amount of content is growing exponentially, but our time is limited. Curators are our filters for information overload – the editors of chaos.


The slew of content curation tools that emerged gave way to algorithms. Can a machine have a Point of View? Machines can influence your Point of View. The danger is they can also create a filter bubble.


It is human insight coupled with machine results that can define the very best information edited from a trusted curator’s Point of View.


Evergreen posts, such as “Curating Content for Thought Leadership”,, written by Angela in 2010 are important in that they stand the test of time.  All good blogs need some such articles.


The above, along with all of Angela's posts on the now defunct Postereus, have evergreen links due to a new tool for archiving the web  – Permamarks.

7 Roadblocks To Content Curation - What You Need to Know | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

This post was written by Romain Goday from Darwineco. The insights and suggestions in this article are excellent because they articulate the problem so clearly.


When you can see something in this light, it makes it easier to create a plan of action that is effective. This takes time but it can be done. More about this in the weeks to come, stay tuned.


Excerpt:


We all want to be sure we are not missing important information. This post explores 7 roadblocks that are an impediment to curation.


**What differentiates successful professionals is their ability to take action before competitors so as to mitigate a risk or act upon an opportunity.


Here are a few things that caught my attention:


**Finding timely and relevant information on an ongoing basis about a specific subject is very challenging


Circles of Trust


**Today's information consumption is largely dependent on whom users "follow" online: social media connections, news sites (groups of publishers), bloggers and other information providers.


****It is easy to forget that critical information might come from outside those circles of trust.


**Most information is available on the Web, but focusing on the right information requires users to combine various tools in very creative ways
