The Bastardization of the Term "Curator" and What Museum Curators Think of It

The Bastardization of the Term "Curator" and What Museum Curators Think of It | The Curating Editor | Scoop.it

MUST READ:

 

 

Robin Good: "A throwdown about the term "curator"". This is the title that Suse Cairns gave to her recent article, in which she opens by writing: "Lately, questions about the bastardisation of the term curator have been emerging around the blogosphere.

 

The Hermitage Museum wrote An Open Letter to Everyone Using the Word ‘Curate’ Incorrectly on the Internet, and Digital Transformations recently asked whether DJs are curators, and vice versa.

 

Their opening volley caught my attention:

 

"The word ‘curator’ gets used liberally these days to talk about stuff people do on the web. But does that devalue the term?

 

Is there any way what someone does on Facebook is comparable to the years of training and knowledge which goes into curating collections in museums and galleries?"

 

I believe that if Suse Cairns had the opportunity to see the real work that goes into professional content or news curation, she would not hesitate an instant in recognizing how skilled and experienced a person must be, in several disciplines, to even consider attempting doing such a job.

 

On the other hand, I can't but agree with her colleagues who are pulling their hair in disgust when they see people proudly "picking" and republishing other people content "as is" while defining themselves as "curators".

 

I must also convene with her complaining colleagues that curation has little or nothing to do with personal expression and social sharing, two reputable and valuable activities, which can be carried out with similar tools, but which require very different skills and time, and which have very little in common beyond the immediate surface. 

 

If one does not look or pay attention at these small details it is very easy to get caught into misleading generalizations (content curation is useless, etc.).

 

I am actually pointing to this article, not so much for the good effort that Suse Cairns to reconciliate traditional museum curators with the new self-acclaimed content curators, but for the excellent series of comments that her short article did spark.

 

Among them, I have excerpted this little gem from Suse herself: "I’m reading Stephen E. Weil’s Rethinking the Museum, and there is a section that seems entirely appropriate to this discussion.

 

On page 53, Weil discusses the work of John Cotton Dana, and writes “In his 1917 book The New Museum, Dana urged that museums of the future make a special effort to attract the young and to interest them in making collections of their own – collections that they might ultimately share with the public. This development of the collecting habit, he wrote:


“...with its accompanying education of powers of observation, its training in handiwork, its tendency to arouse interests theretofore unsuspected even by those who possess them, its continuous suggestions toward good taste and refinement which lie in the process of installing even the most modest of collections, and its leaning towards sound civic interest through doing for one’s community a helpful thing – this work of securing the co-operation of boys and girls, making them useful while they are gaining their own pleasure and carrying on their own education, is one of the coming museum’s most promising fields.”"


With this idea in mind, maybe this idea of collecting or “curating” online – even if it were only simple list-making – can be seen as an interesting, useful and positive thing."

 

Inspiring. Sense-making. 9/10

Hi Robin. I've held off on responding to this, but when it was rescooped today I decided that I would write in to chat about your interpretation of my initial post. It was not actually my original intention to "reconciliate traditional museum curators with the new self-acclaimed content curators", nor was I dismissing professional content "curation". Instead, I was speaking to the evolution in the nomenclature; to the fact that the word 'curator' is now being used widely beyond the borders of the museum sector, much to the chagrin of many within it. In fact, I was arguing that if people like yourself, professional content curators, want to use the term 'curator' to describe themselves, then that was a positive thing - something that not everyone in my sector would (or did) agree with. Your interpretation of my initial post is understandably coloured by your own perspective, but this also means you are reading into the discussion things that were not necessarily there.
Robin Good's comment, October 13, 2012 3:11 AM
Thanks Suse for your kind comments and for sharing your thoughts on this. As I have written there is plenty of good things you have written in your article, and our ability to understand and make meaning out of newly explored grounds like this one, is enriched by not having everyone agree and see things in the same way.

I am still thankful to your post which provided lots of valuable insight and some good sparks for extra discussion.
suse cairns's comment, October 14, 2012 3:32 AM
Fantastic to hear. One of the most enjoyable and interesting things about the Internet, I think, is the space it makes for conversation across all kinds of boundaries; sparks for discussion indeed. It's those new connections, across spaces, that open up room for new kinds of thinking and understanding.

How to Create an Idea Dashboard to Track Your Favorite Content Ideas

How to Create an Idea Dashboard to Track Your Favorite Content Ideas | The Curating Editor | Scoop.it
Content marketing productivity takes more than creating great content. Here's how to track your favorite content ideas on an idea dashboard.

Content productivity or Curating Content involves tracking and applying the good ideas you find in the blog posts you read each week.

These contain a staggering amount of information and good ideas.

A lot of information to absorb and catalog for future reference.

 

When you add ideas you find across the web, social communities and other media, your information management tasks can quickly become overwhelming.

Roger Parker has come up with this solution to track the consuming tsunami of valuable ideas, strategies, and tips.

An easy way to increase comprehension of individual posts plus a way to quickly and easily relocate important posts in the future.

 

Roger C. Parker's idea dashboard helps  you monitor ideas worthy of further study and should satisfy the following criteria:

Relevance:  Your idea dashboard doesn’t need to list every blog post, just those you’re most likely to want to revisit. Brevity:  Enough information to summarize the post and its key ideas, providing a reason for you to click the link back to the original post. Ease of use:  Easy to update. Ideally, you should be able to add references to new posts in under 10 minutes. It includes a visual component. Must be “scannable;” i.e., able to select relevant posts at a glance. Search-ability: easily search, or filter, your dashboard to locate the information you’re looking for as quickly as possible. Flexibility:  Must be easy to rearrange your dashboard to reflect your changing interests or priorities.

 

With these criteria in mind, there are three steps involved in setting up and maintaining your idea dashboard.

Step 1: Choose your key categories

Selectivity is the key to success: Selectivity involves self-curation — identifying topics that are most relevant to you.

Step 2: Choose the right format - Your two primary options are spreadsheets (like Excel, or Google Docs) and mind maps.

Step 3: Update daily - Part of your daily ritual. Consistency is extremely important

Honest, Caring Curation Is as Important as Creation

Honest, Caring Curation Is as Important as Creation | The Curating Editor | Scoop.it

Note from Beth:

This article was curated by Robin Good who used to point out the difference between sharing and curation - and how curation is actually closer to content curation.   Jan Gordon also highlighted the post with a call to action to content curations.     When two important curators here on Scoop.It call an article about our practice to our attention, we should read it, and consider how to apply the ideas to our practice.

Beth Kanter

http://www.bethkanter.org




------

Robin Good: If you are interested in understanding how "content curation" differentiates itself from simple re-sharing and re-blogging here is a great article by Chris DeLine.

 

Great advice for anyone wanting to become an effective content curator: “Whether in tweets, in blog posts, in podcasts, or in newsletters, be ruthless with your attention.


...

 

Some adopt a strategy of blanket-curation, throwing everything new or fresh or remotely interesting online and letting other consumers make their own value distinctions.

 

Others assume the role of tastemaker, selectively making the decisions themselves.

 

Both have their place, but the former contributes to what Jonathan Haidt calls “the paradox of abundance,” which he says “undermines the quality of our engagement.”

How many content-overload websites can you monitor before you become overwhelmed by volume? How many share-explosions does it take before you remove a friend from your Facebook feed? How many Tumblr pages can you pay attention to before the reblogs become a blur?

 

...

Thoughtful, honest, and caring curation isn’t entirely different than creation.

 

After all, the topics you choose to research, to blog about, and to discuss with friends all begin with the process of sifting through the media abyss yourself and singling out worthwhile information."

 

What really counts is to create content that is useful, meaningful and helpful for others, whether from direct hand authorship, or by curating the best existing resources.

 

Insightful. 8/10

Best Practices For Planning A Content Curation Strategy By Steve Rosenbaum [Video]

 

"Curation can solve the problem of abundance online, Steven Rosenbaum explained at the recent Streaming Media East conference in New York City. While creative professionals occasionally disagree with curation, it's a way for site owners to present strong material to site visitors and cut through the clutter.

"Content curators are distributors of collections," explained Rosenbaum.

...

That's the abundance problem. If you went ahead and made all the curators in the world go away, you'd still have this signal-to-noise problem that we laid out at the beginning of the talk. So, absolutely no way is curation the thing that is the enemy of creation."

 

A well-planned content curation strategy doesn't simply present a list of videos to site visitors. It presents a collection with personality. When curating materials to present, think about the persona that makes that collection unique..."

Hi, Beth. Sorry for the (extremely) delayed response! It definitely sounds like what you experienced was a glitch and/or a flaw in the UX, as Picsho was very early in the beta stage when this was originally shared by Robin Good. We're sure this has been fixed, and we've added lots more features since then. We would be glad if you'd check out the web app again and give us more feedback. Thanks!

The Discoverability Problem: How to Get Out of the Filter Bubble Recommendation Systems

The Discoverability Problem: How to Get Out of the Filter Bubble Recommendation Systems | The Curating Editor | Scoop.it


Robin Good: Brett Sandusky attacks the "discovery" topic with simple, straight logic, analyzing what all the new startups and the new tech fanatics seem to systematically look over.

 

How can you help me discover new stuff, if you are intentionally limiting your exploratory gathering to algorithms and to, however varied, network of contacts?

 

She writes: "The discoverability problem in books is a challenge. It’s about connecting users to new and interesting titles, that they wouldn’t normally have seen. This last part bears repeating: …that they wouldn’t normally have seen.

 

Ultimately, the problem with all these discoverability sites is this: their algorithms (if they are even using an algorithm) are based on aggregate data in a one size fits all model.


The more people who read something, the more often it shows up in your recommendations. But, that’s not discoverability. That’s the NYT bestseller list. That’s Nielsen Bookscan telling you the top sales of the week.


Just because most of my friends are reading bestsellers (because, duh, whose aren’t? In fact, that seems to just reinforce the concept of the term “bestseller”) does that mean I should only be shown these titles?

 

Obviously, the answer is no. But, how do we get there?"

 

The answer is that we need a) more expert and qualified human intervention to unearth and pick new stuff, and b) behavioral data coupled with data collected on customer preference to allows us to connect those selected materials to the users in the system.

 

 

Rightful. Timely. 8/10

Too bad that it is only in Russian, as I can't make much sense of whether there is real value in there or not. Or is it there a western language edition?
RPattinson-Daily's comment, October 14, 2012 8:20 AM
Robin Good, thank You for attention to my comment. Unfortunately, due to crisis of 2008 plans of creation its western language edition were terminated. However, concept, technologies, business model of such recommendation service for creative goods (books, movies, music) were described in book “The Economics of Symbolic Exchange” by Alexander Dolgin (2006) (http://www.amazon.com/Economics-Symbolic-Exchange-Alexander-Dolgin/dp/354079882X). I was content curator, market researcher and editor of this book.
It can be read by parts/chapters depending on interest (see its Contents in Amazon). For example, chapter 1.3 about consumer navigation in creative industry such as online music market, ch.2.7 – survey of recommender systems. The music industry was first where recommendation systems based on collaborative filtering were implemented (for example Last.Fm, and many others). How well they are working you may check out for music – Last.Fm (www.last.fm), for movies – Netflix (www.netflix.com).

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where to Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map | The Curating Editor | Scoop.it

This is Robin Good's comprehensive curation tools map!   Robin has put together smaller select lists for beginners - http://www.mindmeister.com/134633604/best-news-curation-tools-for-independent-publishers-the-newsmaster-toolkit-by-robin-good-2012 and http://www.mindmeister.com/134760952/news-content-discovery-tools-2012-by-robin-good

 

 

But nonprofits and others always appreciate the comprehensive, well curated and classified list.  This is it!

 

---------------

Robin Good: Everytime I see a new post or article claiming to list the best content curation tools I know I am in for some disappointment.

 

Most of these lists just pick up names from other lists without even bothering to check, test or verify what these tools actually do, whether they are still available. Unfortunately the rush to put out "curated" list of tools and services has created more misinformation than useful lists. 

 

But if you, like me, are on the lookout for new and effective tools to curate your own content or the one of your customers, I have created a comprehensive map of all the curation tools available online and I keep it fresh and updated almost on a daily basis.

 

The map presently lists over 250 content curation tools which you can navigate much more easily than it was possible on my earlier versions of this map.

 

On the right side of the map you will find all of the news and content curation tools available online today. On the left side, you can find bookmarking, link lists builders, clippers and lots of tools to operate with RSS feeds (which are still at the heart of a curator's job).

Curators Create the Metadata Needed to Enable Our Emerging Collective Intelligence

Curators Create the Metadata Needed to Enable Our Emerging Collective Intelligence | The Curating Editor | Scoop.it

Robin Good selected this post, well worth reading the post and Howard's book as well.


Robin Good: Participatory culture writer and book author Henry Jenkins interviews cyberculture pioneer Howard Rheingold (Net Smart, 2012) by asking him to explain some of the concepts that have helped him become a paladin of the  and "new literacies" so essential for survival in the always-on information-world we live in today.

 

This is part three of a long and in-depth interview (Part 2, Part 1) covering key concepts and ideas as the value of "community" and "networks", the architecture of participation, affinity working spaces, and curation.

Here is a short excerpt of Howard response to a question about curation and its value as both a “fundamental building block” of networked communities and as an important form of participation:

 

Howard Rheingold: "...at the fundamental level, curation depends on individuals making mindful and informed decisions in a publicly detectable way.

 

Certainly just clicking on a link, “liking” or “plussing” an item online, adding a tag to a photograph is a lightweight element that can be aggregated in valuable ways (ask Facebook).

 

But the kind of curation that is already mining the mountains of Internet ore for useful and trustworthy nuggets of knowledge, and the kind that will come in the future, has a strong literacy element.

 

Curators don’t just add good-looking resources to lists, or add their vote through a link or like, they summarize and contextualize in their own words, explicitly explain why the resource is worthy of attention, choose relevant excerpts, tag thoughtfully, group resources and clearly describe the grouping criteria."

 

In other words, "curators" are the ones creating the metadata needed to empower our emerging collective intelligence.

 

Curation Is The Social Choice About What Is Worth Paying Attention To.

 

Good stuff. In-depth. Insightful. 8/10

You're welcome :)

It's interesting interesting that you mention POV and stance, as that is not something I had explicitly articulated for myself, but naturally it must be implicitly true. In that sense, it reminds me (again) that curation forces self-reflection in order to present the content better, and that can only be a good thing.

If you are doing content curation, you are also probably doing some content creation, building content out of aggregated pieces.    So if content curation is like collecting and organizating your legos,  there is also a part to make sense of the collection - build something out of the smaller pieces.   For example, a presentation or article or blog post.

 

So, you need a method or to organize a part of your collection or smaller collection to prep this content.    This is an "idea dashboard" -- Evernote is a great for this if you a rext person and using curation to write.  There are also visual ways to organized too.

 

 

The description of what's in this e-book:

 

Evernote brings order to that chaos. Everything you need to remember can now be stored in your Evernote account for future browsing and searching.
