The Value of Curation Expressed in a Beautiful Poem: The Curator

The Value of Curation Expressed in a Beautiful Poem: The Curator | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

"We thought it would come, we thought the Germans would come, were almost certain they would. I was thirty-two, / the youngest assistant curator in the country. I had some good ideas in those days."

Robin Good's curator insight, March 12, 9:09 AM



The Curator, by Miller Williams, is a poem that illustrates the keen value of the curator. 

It's a short story, that can be read in just 3 minutes, and which can provide a great metaphor to explain to others, emotionally, what the value of the curator, is all about. 



Beautiful. Inspiring. 9/10

What gets you up in the morning? Brett Gaylor & Thenmozhi Soundarajan dish..| Open Documentary Lab at MIT

The world of interactive documentary is at a critical juncture. Challenges– and opportunities– abound. At MIT’s New Arts of Documentary summit, we asked thought leaders in documentary storytelling, technology, and curation what they found most exciting about the field– what gets you up in the morning-- as well as the challenges they saw ahead– what keeps you up at night.


In this first blog of series, Brett Gaylor (Director, Mozilla Popcorn) and Thenmozhi Soundararajan, (Executive Director, Third World Majority) reveal what gets them up in the morning.

Deep Design Turns Chaos Into Curation: Thomas Goetz [Video]

Thomas Goetz, Executive Editor, WIRED discusses "How to Spot the Future"."

Via Robin Good
siobhan-o-flynn's insight:

Grazie to Robin Good for the excellent summary as always!

 

Robin Good's insight:

 

"Last year, at the WIRED Business Conference 2012, Thomas Goetz, a Wired executive editor, presented on an interesting topic entitled: How To Spot the Future.

 

In it, he presented seven rules for identifying the trends, technologies and ideas that will change the world. An activity that Wired editors should supposedly be very good at.

 

Rule number six in Mr. Goetz presentation is "Demand Deep Design", an elegant way of saying that "curation" and the ability to do so effectively, is and will be a characterizing trait of companies capable of changing the world.

 

"Stripping away unnecessary info..."

"companies that help us organize our lives..."

"entities that help us understand information"..."

"Stripping away unnecessary info..."

"companies that help us organize our lives..."

"entities that help us understand information"


All these are all easily recognizable traits of those working, directly or indirectly, to help us better manage the large amount of information we are increasingly confronted with.


The ability to do so, is a "design ability", because it encompasses the whole purpose, reason to be and scope of an object, piece of information or tool.


And indeed, it looks like but inevitable (unavoidable), that those individuals and companies who will devise new and better ways to help us manage the info tsunami, will have a fast growing demand coming their way.


"Deep Design turns chaos into curation."
