Why content curation is a new form of communication

While the history of communication until the end of the previous century has only been focusing on enlarging the distribution to a few published or broadcasted content creators, we now live in information overload where content curators can be the new super heroes.


Via Guillaume Decugis, Víctor V. Valera Jiménez
Begoña Iturgaitz's insight:

Anyway, despite the messages that sail from different content curation insights; I find reality a bit different as it seems that the most number of posts (curated or just retwitted) , the better in terms of followers. My point here is that there is still few insight on this. We still have to develop good standards and clear criteria for high quality curation.

A core competency of NGO trainers is being a curator.    This skill will help you build relevant, useful, and valuable curriculum and training.

Curators as Filter Feeders and Ecosystem Engineers: You Are What You Link To


Via Robin Good
Begoña Iturgaitz's insight:

Very good point from Anne- Marie. It's also useful for thinking on what you filter....

Robin Good's curator insight, July 14, 2013 3:39 AM



Back in 2003 visionary artist Anne-Marie Schleiner wrote an inspiring paper entitled "Fluidities and Oppositions among Curators, Filter Feeders and Future Artists" describing the future role of online curators as nature's own filter feeders.


Anne-Marie is clearly referring to curators to and filter feeder in art world, but her rightful intuitions are equivalently applicable to the larger world of information, data, digital and content curation as well.


But let me explain better.


First. The term "filter feeders" is used in nature to describe a group of animals which thrives on its ability to filter organic matter floating around them.


From Wikipedia: "Filter feeders are animals that feed by straining suspended matter and food particles from water, typically by passing the water over a specialized filtering structure.


Some animals that use this method of feeding are clams, krill, sponges, baleen whales, and many fish (including some sharks). Some birds, such as flamingos, are also filter feeders.


Filter feeders can play an important role in clarifying water, and are therefore considered ecosystem engineers."


From Wikipedia: "In marine environments, filter feeders and plankton are ecosystem engineers because they alter turbidity and light penetration, controlling the depth at which photosynthesis can occur.[4]"


Second. If you re-read this last sentence slowly and look at what it could mean if applied to the field of content curation, it would read to me something like this:


"In large information ecosystems like the web, filter feeders/content curators and content itself are ecosystem engineers because they:


a) directly influence our ability to inform ourselves effectively and to discern truth from false and useless info (turbidity) 


b) shed light and clarity on different subjects which would otherwise remain obscure (light penetration)


c) determine our ability to make sense of our own generated information streams (photosynthesis)."


A very inspiring parallel indeed, giving a way to visualize the true importance and role that curation, disenfranchised from the confines of museums and art galleries, could have on the planetary information ecosystem.


Anne-Marie writes: "Most web sites contain hyperlinks to other sites, distributed throughout the site or in a "favorites" section.


Each of these favorite links sections serves as a kind of gallery, remapping other web sites as its own contents.


Every web site owner is thus a curator and a cultural critic, creating chains of meaning through association, comparison and juxtaposition, parts or whole of which can in turn serve as fodder for another web site's "gallery."


Site maintainers become operational filter feeders, feeding of other filter feeders sites and filtering others' sites.


Links are contextualized, interpreted and "filtered" through criticism and comments about them, and also by placement in the topology of a site.


The deeper a link is buried, the harder it may be to find, the closer to the surface and the frontpage, the more prominent it becomes, as any web designer can attest to.


I am what I link to and what I am shifts over time as I link to different sites...


...


In the process, I invest my identity in my collection - I become how I filter."



Anne-Marie vision (2003), pure and uninfluenced by what we have seen emerge in the last few years, paints a very inspiring picture of the true role of content curators and of the key responsibility they do hold for humanity's future.



Inspiring. Visionary. Right on the mark. 10/10

Never heard of it - must be worth sharing :)

Robin Good's insight:Introducing content curation to someone who doesn't know anything about it is not always an easy task. There are so many different articles, opinions, definitions and recommendations about content curation that it is quite difficult for someone just getting familiar with the topic, to easily find out where to start and what to trust. To help out anyone needing to support the explanation of content curation to others, here are five comprehensive resource collections I have put together over the course of the last year. 1) Content Curation - Definitions a collection of the best and most useful definitions of what content curation is http://bundlr.com/b/content-curation-definition 2) Content Curation - What is it? Video Intros 30+ short video clips that introduce the need, practice and purpose of content curation http://huzzaz.com/collection/content-curation-what-is-it 3) Content Curation Visualized 110+ infographics, visuals, illustrations and diagrams explaining what content curation is www.pinterest.com/robingood/content-curation-visualized/ 4) Content Curation Tools Directory - Tools Directory 100+ of the best content curation tools organized in a directory for immediate access http://contentcuration.zeef.com/ 5) Content Curation Tools Supermap - Tools Collection 600+ content curation, discovery, filtering and publishing tools organized by categories for doing content curation http://bit.ly/ContentCurationToolsSupermap All free to use and share.

Esta #infografia explica de una manera clara y concisa (y en español) que es la curación de contenidos,sus fases (recolección, criba o filtro, elaboración, distribución y análisis), la importancia de la content curation (mejor posicionamiento, buena reputación online y crear una comunidad), los errores más frecuentes que un buen content curator no debe cometer (la información no tiene jugo suficiente o es demasiado general, utilización excesiva y casi exclusiva de keywords o palabras clave en tus publicaciones y no realizar nunca prácticas de “copy+paste”) y las cualidades que ha de tener un buen curador de contenidos (sintético, proactivo, crítico, experto, empático y curioso).
