Tom Johnson provides a good discussion about how different tools meet different needs. I know for myself, I haven't used some of what Tom needs, but I do understand how WordPress and Drupal are becoming more popular due to their flexibility as open source software, and the need to find software that can integrate with them easily.  Even if you don't use the same software that Tom mentions in the article, it's a good read to see how different needs produce different wants, and how there is a need to address these issues.

Day 10 #30DC13: Organize the Web with Curation Tools | EVSC ICATS | Writing | Scoop.it
One of the great things about living in the Digital Age is that we all have instant access to incredible amounts of information at any time. That is also one of the challenges of our time. Managing digital information has been likened to drinking from a firehose. If we are to make sense of the information we find, we need to learn to curate it into manageable collections that help us make meaning. This skill is not only essential to us personally, we also need help our students by curating information for them and by teaching them how to do so on their own. There are dozens of great tools for curating web content, and each one has its own features. This means that some curation tools work well in one situation, while others work well for a different purpose or audience. Just as a master carpenter wouldn't have just one plane or screwdriver, teachers need to have multiple curation tools to help fit the many digital tasks they take on. I personally wouldn't want to have to live without

catspyjamasnz's curator insight, January 29, 2014 6:02 AM

Maria Popova on curation: "If information discovery plays such a central role in how we make sense of the world in this new media landscape, then it is a form of creative labor in and of itself. And yet our current normative models for crediting this kind of labor are completely inadequate, if they exist at all. "

Yes, appreciate and credit the curator who found you the resource that now has your friends chuckling, your colleagues appreciating you, or your manager impressed. They may not be the original curator but at least you are attributing and it will strenghten your network and theirs. Otherwise it's like you are telling someone else's joke. Some platforms (like Facebook) don't always make this easy, particularly in their mobile version. But if you can, acknowledge.

Using Evernote for Professional Learning and Development - Miss Spink on Tech | Writing | Scoop.it

"Being a passionate and inquisitive teacher in a digital, globally connected environment opens up so many opportunities for professional development. Like many teachers, I thrive on extending my knowledge in multiple areas, I want to know everything I can in order to make me better at my job and life in general. I am constantly seeking ways to inspire and better myself, other teachers at my school or in my wider PLN and importantly, students I engage with and teach. In an age of ‘infowhelm’ it can be hard to manage, truly engage in and learn from so much information.

 

That is unless you have the right tools."

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, April 14, 2014 10:46 AM

I've enjoyed chatting with Mark Baker when I've met him at conferences, and his blog certainly feels like an extension of conversations I've had with him. I've enjoyed reading the back-and-forth discussions he's had with Tom Johnson of "I'd Rather Be Writing", and this is another contribution to one of their discussions (which is a response to Tom's response for another one of Mark's blog posts). Adding links within text is a slippery slope, and I think the conversation that Mark and Tom are having in their articles, which Mark tries to summarize and address in this blog post, show that it's not as much of a cut-and-dry process as one would think. 

 

I highly recommend taking a look at this article--and the links. It's a great discussion about the use of hypertext.

Here's a valuable resource on content curation, "distilled" by the students of the DCurate MOOC lead Martin Couzins and Sam Burrough which organizes over 60 different articles, guides and tools on the topic.

 

This resources collection is presented in the form of a Pearltrees interactive map, organized into eight sections:

 

1. Why Do We Need Curators

 

2. What Is Digital Curation

 

3. Aggregation vs. Curation

 

4. It's All About Audience

 

5. How Do We Find Valuable Content

 

6. How Do You Decide What To Curate

 

7. Curation Tools

 

8. Contributions from participants

 

If you are new to content curation this is a good resource to bookmark and keep as a reference.

Deanna Dahlsad's curator insight, January 30, 2014 7:52 PM

I think the most important lesson here is that if you want to make money directly from content curation you need to curate/publish on your own self-hosted website. (In this sense, we are back to curation with your own personal comments added in as a form of blogging.)


If you want content curation to "add value" to your service or commerce business (by marketing or otherwise reaching your target market) your calculations will vary.
