Curation, Amplification, Journalism in 2012

"The role of journalists will evolve towards fact checking and curation: rather than originate stories, they can now tap in social media powered citizen journalists and become effective curators."

"Stronger emphasis needs to be put on distribution and post-production: How stories will look, live and evolve after they are publish is important."

Biggest issues to solve in content curation?

I felt we made the most progress in 2011:

  • “enable value-adding curators to get more tangible benefits from their activity “
  • “semi-automate low-grade curation so people are liberated to tackle the more challenging and valuable stuff”
  • “connect curators to share practices and elevate curation from craft to art”
  • “create communities through curation”
  • “augment the reader’s experience with curated content”
  • “accelerate Social Discovery of high-quality curators”
  • “augment the content producer’s experience”
  • “enable cooperative and collaborative curation”

Amassing Is Not Curating: Curation Filters The Flood For a Specific Purpose and Tribe

Excellent presentation delivered from Margot Bloomstein to the Web 2.0 Expo 2011 audience on October 11th on the topic of content curation. 

In her 98 visual slides Ms Bloomstein does an excellent job of synthesizing, describing and highlighting the characterizing traits of true curation, while distinguishing clearly from similar aggregation practices. 

Recommended.

Telling Social Stories with Storify, Education

"After my post about perceptions versus reality in the classroom a few weeks ago, several folks wrote to ask about Storify. I’ve been playing around with Storify for a few months now, since the very end of its private beta, and I like the way I can weave tweets, links, videos, and other media into one coherent storyline..."

What Curators NOT are, web curation vs. other curation, vs. aggregation

Excerpted from J.D. Hildebrand's article "I, curator".
The amount of information online is unfathomably vast and dreadfully disorganized. (...) Web-search technology is miraculously effective if you already know what you're looking for, but if you need to stay up-to-date on a handful of topics, search engines suffer from clunkiness and redundancy.

"Interesting analysis, ramblings and opinion what curation is all about, and some interesting pointers to good examples, curators (Rob Diana) and extra reading."

Please note that the author of this original post, Shobha Atre, uses images stolen from other web sites, (the one appearing here is an image I have bought and personalized myself with those titles) without providing any credit or attribution. How can this person be a reliable curator if sHe behaves in this way?

Hi robin,
Thank you for pointing this out, I had no idea she used a stolen image in this piece. Will leave this up so you see my response. Taking it down tomorrow, not tweeting it. I don't support anyone who does this.

What Makes A Great Curator Great? High-Value Curation vs. Generic Republishing

Today content curation is sold, promoted and marketed as the latest and trendiest approach to content production, SEO visibility, reputation and traffic building. But is it really so? (Written and curated by Robin Good, Nov 4, the early days of scoop.it)

  1. Curation can be effective only as much as it effectively provides a quality filtering mechanism that can replace my need to consult multiple sources.
  2. Shallow curation efforts, where the main goal is to republish selected content with the minimum effort and time, are going to be effective only for the very short term.
  3. Curation is an effective means to build a strong relationship with a niche audience of passionate people to engage, not a marketing strategy that caters to gain a broad audience of readers by virtue of quantity and breadth.
  4. The key element that makes curation work is the competence and focus of the curator and of the topic he has selected. Repeated efforts to create curated channels that mix and match broad and highly competitive topics are bound to see a very short life.
