Beth Kanter has been at the forefront of social media usage for non-profits and as such an expert curator. She wrote an interesting review of the book "The Information Diet" which I published the teaser video of a few weeks ago.
As she points out, this is not an isolated piece but one that is related to other works to form a movement towards wider content consumption. A trend where curation has an essential role to play.
But as Brian Solis pointed out a few days ago, information overload has a lot of benefits too. Probably more so than inconvenients. So just like a culinary diet means better rather than less, this is all a question of balance as we should dread Information... Anorexia.
