Guillaume De Cugis of Scoop.it responds to Curation thought leader, Robin Good in Scoop.it comment thread:
( ...) Another example: I went to a Picasso exhibition a few ago at the de Young museum in SF: wonderful one. Did the curator spend more time preparing it than Picasso did creating the works? Unlikely. Is this saying that curators have it easy? Absolutely no! Easier doesn't mean it doesn't take any time at all. (...) our vision has always been to create a new form of media publishing, different than blogs or micro-blogging that is based on curation in a topic-centric model.
For a long time, Mobile Internet was a “baby internet” as Steve Jobs called it, the day the iPhone was launched. The first smartphones were not very smart as they didn’t support “real” HTML browsing nor many of the Web technologies that made online experiences rich and useful. Obviously, the iPhone changed that (...). But one area that still struggles with mobile is content publishing. (...) Curation is an opportunity to change that. Here's why.
