Yesterday, 250 million photos were uploaded to Facebook, 864,000 hours of video were uploaded to YouTube, and 294 billion emails were sent. No wonder content curation is one of the most important jobs of our digital age.
Curation is the act of individuals with a passion for a content area to find, contextualize, and organize information. Curators provide a consistent update regarding what's interesting, happening, and cool in their focus. Curators tend to have a unique and consistent point of view--providing a reliable context for the content that they discover and organize.
Robin Good: This is HOT for anyone wanting to live video stream from just about any location without needing to carry a computer to do so.

The red box costs $495 for the firsth three months and then $45/mo thereafter and it will be be available from the end of May in the US and Europe.
Statistics show that time spent on social-networking sites is going up, as time spent on traditional ad websites decreases. As this happens, the traditional pixel data that advertisers use to target ads becomes less relevant. For one thing, this data is static –- whereas the new Intelligent Web is about harnessing real-time and open Web data, which is dynamic and in a constant state of change. Businesses that are not tying services into the social Web and the social graph soon will be out of business. If you don't believe me, look at what major online establishments are doing. Google, for one, recently launched Search Plus Your World as a way to incorporate more share graph data from its users into its search results. When Google moves, it's wise to at least pay attention. So why will legacy ad networks die? Can't they just adapt? The analogy that comes to mind is the mechanic who attempts to fix a plane that's already in flight. Legacy ad networks have already taken off and, unfortunately for them, it is incredibly difficult to change their business model mid-flight to adapt to the demands of the Intelligent Web. They will need to develop entirely new products to exist in the Intelligent Web's highly social and real-time environment.
Mobile data traffic is set to explode, driven by more smartphones and tablets and the incredible growth of video traversing mobile networks. But a new video format is on its way, which could deliver the same high-quality video in half as many bits.
