3 Ways Content “Curation” Can Boost Content “Creation”

3 Ways Content “Curation” Can Boost Content “Creation” | Technoscience and the Future | Scoop.it

Content curation seems to be the only sanity-saving cure to information overload! Still, content marketers often face the dilemma of weighing the pros and cons of content creation versus content curation.

 

We have been looking at curation and creation as a two separate practices. Yet I beg to differ: content curation can give a huge boost to content creation and that is the key point I want to make in this article.

 

Content curation can help in refining created content in three different ways.


1. Curated Content Can Inspire Topics For Created Content...

2. Build On Curated Content To Create Your Own Content...

3. Use Curated Content As A “Teaser” To Drive Traffic To Your Own Content...

 

I can’t think of a better way to sum up this article than sharing the following quote:
"Strangely enough, curation shifts the balance of power back to brands and publications. While anyone can make content, the decision to gather it, and present it by trusted content curators has more risk, and therefore more value"...

Hi Beth,
I agree with you, I love the feeling of community and the collective wisdom, and you know "curation resonates with me":-)

This has me thinking critically about how we are integrating social media. Inviting interaction has been a huge challenge. We are stimulating new conversations in real world time, but that's not reflected in comments and so forth. I like using Scoop.It widgets to get the newest scoop onto the bog in a timely manner and take some time to reflect on post content.

Consumer confusion stalling electric vehicle sales | TheGreenCarWebsite.co.uk

Consumer confusion stalling electric vehicle sales | TheGreenCarWebsite.co.uk | Technoscience and the Future | Scoop.it

Electric cars have failed to generate many sales among British motorists because consumers are confused about the realities of their cost and performance, according to new research.


British motorists don’t understand the realities of EV ownership with those most keen to buy one, the least knowledgeable about the practicalities of ownership, a study from GfK Automotive concludes.


GfK interviewed more than 3,000 British motorists about electric cars, finding that just eight per cent of motorists planned to buy one, with the vast majority of this group underestimating the cost and time it takes to charge the vehicles and overestimate their range.

How to Find Fascinating People in Google Plus | circled.us | Technoscience and the Future | Scoop.it

"As I began spending a bit more time in Google+, I realized that the network wasn’t built around friendships (like Facebook), it was built about subscribing to people and pages that you think are interesting (similar to subscribing to blog feeds in Google Reader or following Twitter accounts). I also realized quickly that public posts from a “nobody” like me got much more interaction within a few minutes than on Twitter.

This led to my desire to start finding interesting people to follow, so here are some various ways that I’ve used . . ."

San Francisco Gives Electric Car Love, Starts “EV Council”

San Francisco Gives Electric Car Love, Starts “EV Council” | Technoscience and the Future | Scoop.it

It’s a known fact that certain areas of the U.S. are better known for their love of the electric car than others, but San Francisco wants to go one better with a bid to become the electric car capital of the entire U.S.


In order to achieve this, elected official and local business leaders in the bay area have joined together to launch the EV Strategic Council, a workgroup designed to develop the infrastructure needed to facilitate and encourage mass-adoption of plug-in vehicles throughout the city.

 

At its launch, the project announced it had received over $5 million in funding from various different public and private funds, including the U.S.Department of Energy, the California Energy Commission and the Bay Area Air Quality Management District.

Genetics Indicates an Extra-Terrestrial Origin of Life: The First Gene.

it requires at last 382 genes to sustain life, and this means once the first gene was established, it had to acquire the ability to replicate and then undergo at least nine to 10 whole genome duplications before the simplest of life forms could survive. For the first gene to have evolved sufficiently to sustain life, would have taken several billion years and leads backwards in time to long before the Earth was formed

America Edges to Brink of Armed Police Drones

America Edges to Brink of Armed Police Drones | Technoscience and the Future | Scoop.it

A county north of Houston made news in Europe at the end of October by taking delivery of a new “weaponizable” drone, a squat remote-controlled helicopter called a ShadowHawk that can fire Tasers or beanbags at people on the ground. Police in Montgomery County say the drone would chase drug smugglers or escaping criminals. Alarmed Europeans wondered if some aspect of drone warfare — so far a problem only for terrorists and other strangers in poor and distant countries — had come home to the First World.

Gamers, their networks and collective intelligence | Technoscience and the Future | Scoop.it

The next generation is growing up in a collaborative world and are instinctual in their use of collective intelligence and networks. We have become ‘informational hunters and gatherers” (Jenkins, 2006, location 2480) and while elder generations may still be isolated in old media, the younger generations, and especially gamers, are learning to work together in a way we have never done before. Games bring people together and allow for collaboration in problem solving, a skill that many of us could benefit in practicing.

A research group at MIT has announced that they’ve developed a chip that mimics the synapse between neurons in the human brain.

In the human brain, a synapse is the structure which enables a neuron to send information to other parts of the brain. Typically, that information is either electrical or chemical, and the signal can carried to either another neuron (which is what’s typical) or a different cell in the brain.

The Black Eyed Peas “Imma Be / Rock that Body” video is a masterpiece of high tech computer-generated imagery and state of the art digital music production. It is also one of the most blatant examples of Psychological Warfare and deception that I have ever seen in modern mass media.

This article will discuss:

1) What Transhumanism actually is.

2) The massive use of Psychological Warfare techniques in this video and all forms of mass media.

3) Analyis of the video, itself - to show you how these psychological concepts, the occult and Transhumanist symbolism and the deceptive storyline are integrated in this video to promote the dangerous agenda of the cult known as Transhumanism.
