Guidelines Proposed for Content Aggregation Online

Guidelines Proposed for Content Aggregation Online | Curation and discovery |

Vấn đề về sự đáng tin cậy của thông tin trong thế giới curation, đôi khi ko biết đâu là original.


Traditional media organizations watched as others kidnapped their work, not only taking away content but, more and more, taking the audiences with them. Practitioners of the new order heard the complaints and suggested that mainstream media needed to quit whining and start competing in a changed world, where what’s yours may not be yours anymore if others find a better way to package it.


He went on something of a rant about it, writing that The Huffington Post’s overly aggressive approach to aggregation at the time — in which content is rewritten, links are buried, and very little is added — yielded all of 57 page views for the original item.

After getting an in-box full of examples from other writers who felt similarly aggrieved, Mr. Dumenco decided to pull out the big guns: He has formed a committee aiming to establish standards for aggregation. Buckle up, here comes the Council on Ethical Blogging and Aggregation.

“This is not an anti-aggregation group, we are pro-aggregation,” Mr. Dumenco told me. “We want some simple, common-sense rules."


suggested that the failure to give credit was growing endemic. On Friday, she and her collaborator, the designer Kelli Anderson, announced the Curator’s Code, a site that offers a way of expressing where things come from.


“Discovery of information is a form of intellectual labor,” she said. “When we don’t honor discovery, we are robbing somebody’s time and labor. The Curator’s Code is an attempt to solve some of that.” “What makes the Internet magical to me is that it is a place of radical discovery,” said Ms. Popova, who describes herself as a “curator of interestingness” on the Web. “You can click your way through a chain of attributes and links and find amazing things.” She is careful about attribution and thinks others should be mindful as well.

Curation is the new creation :: BtoB Magazine

That's because we humans face a problem our species has never confronted before: We have too much information. Our challenge has shifted from finding what we need to filtering out what we don't. Today, curation is nearly as important as creation


B2b companies are uniquely positioned to take advantage of curation. In most cases, their customers have highly specific information needs—such as business analytics, chemistry or manufacturing. Engineers don't want to spend time combing through search results, so they appreciate those suppliers that provide that value for them. That can be you.

It May Not Be Content To Produce Revenues In The Future But Curated Suggestions and Recommendations

It May Not Be Content To Produce Revenues In The Future But Curated Suggestions and Recommendations | Curation and discovery |

Robin Good: Back in March of 2011 Kevin Kelly wrote an interesting article entitled "The Satisfaction Paradox".


Within it, he points clearly at an emerging trend: content price becoming lower and lower, and increased ease-of-access to tons of good content, whether this may be books, music or films. 

In such a new world of abundance, where valuable content is all around me, cheap and easily accessible, what is then the next value-creation frontier, he asks.

And this is the insightful view he offers: "...Netflix has more great movies a click away -- after I filter out the dross -- than I can watch in my lifetime.


What do I watch next?


Spotify and other music streaming services will have more fantastic, I-am-in-heaven music available everywhere all the time than I can ever listen to.


What do I listen to next?


Google will have every book ever published only an eight of a second away, and collaborative filtering, friends recommendations and a better Amazon engine, will narrow down those stacks to the best 10,000 books for me.


So what do I read next?


I believe that answering this question is what outfits like Amazon will be selling in the future.


For the price of a subscription you will subscribe to Amazon and have access to all the books in the world at a set price...(An individual book you want to read will be as if it was free, because it won't cost you extra.) The same will be true of movies (Netflix), or music (iTunes or Spotify or Rhapsody.) You won't be purchasing individual works.


Instead you will pay Amazon, or Netflix, or Spotify, or Google for their suggestions of what you should pay attention to next.

Amazon won't be selling books (which are marginally free); they will be selling their recommendations of what to read.

You'll pay the subscription fee in order to get access to their recommendations to the "free" works, which are also available elsewhere.

Their recommendations (assuming continual improvements by more collaboration and sharing of highlights, etc.) will be worth more than the individual books.

You won't buy movies; you'll buy cheap access and pay for personalized recommendations..."


I ask you: How close are these "recommendations" and "suggestions" to the work that many curators do?


Is curation then in the business of "what to pay attention to next"?


Must-read. 10/10

The Ability To Extract and Communicate Insight from Data It's Going To Be Huge: McKinsey Quarterly [Video]

The Ability To Extract and Communicate Insight from Data It's Going To Be Huge: McKinsey Quarterly [Video] | Curation and discovery |

"The ability to take data - to be able to understand it, to process it, to extract value from it, to visualize it, to communicate it's going to be a hugely important skill in the next decades, not only at the professional level but even at the educational level for elementary school kids, for high school kids, for college kids.


Because now we really do have essentially free and ubiquitous data.


So the complimentary scarce factor is the ability to understand that data and extract value from it.


I think statisticians are part of it, but it's just a part.

You also want to be able to visualize the data, communicate the data, and utilize it effectively.


But I do think those skills - of being able to access, understand, and communicate the insights you get from data analysis - are going to be extremely important..."

Curation Saturation, and Why We Might Need Information Friction After All | Brass Tack Thinking

Curation Saturation, and Why We Might Need Information Friction After All | Brass Tack Thinking | Curation and discovery |

"Frictionless. It’s a word that’s taking root in some places to describe the ease of sharing things on the web, specifically through social technologies. I’m not entirely sure it’s a good thing."


Điển hình là "frictionless sharing" của Facebook. Frictionless khiến cho việc production và consumption thông tin trở nên quá đơn giản, dễ dàng ---> quá nhiều thông tin ---> quá tải
