Very interesting video, but regarding point 3. that "We are moving to right-brain work-jobs" I must note there are no "right-brain" jobs. This left-right brain distinction is oversimplified neuromyth.


“The latest findings from the real neuroscience of creativity suggest that the right brain/left brain distinction does not offer us the full picture of how creativity is implemented in the brain.* Creativity does not involve a single brain region or single side of the brain.” (http://t.co/3l5nM7IsEi)

The future of work. 

Bettina Ascaino's curator insight, June 9, 2014 10:53 PM
Robin Good's insight:



Media and technology futurist Gerd Leonhardoutlines his vision of the future of work given the many profound changes shaping the planet during the coming decades.


Key highlights: 


We will be able to offload tedious, repetitive work to computers and robots who will replace rapidly many of our present jobs

At the same time entirely new jobs will be created - for example:
Digital Curation 
Social Engineering
Artificial Intelligence Designers 

We are moving to right-brain work-jobs - that is: storytelling, emotions, creativity and imagination, negotiation 

Education prepares us by having us learn things that we may need later. But in most cases we don't need those things but we rather need to know how to learn new things.

More craftmanship-type of jobs like cooks, makers, hackers, coders, will fluorish as computers-machines cannot replicate such skills (yet)

Here is Part II of my look at the future of content curation tools and at what features and facilities they are likely to introduce in the coming months and years.

While In Part I I have looked at:

  • Display formats
  • Slicing & Dicing
  • Micro - Macro
  • Recurating
  • News discovery
  • Ownership
  • Credit & Attribution

In Part II I am checking out:

  • Preservation
  • Private collections

  • Monetization
  • Content types begging ti be curated
  • Beyond news, articles and mood boards
  • Specialized curation tools

A useful summary of the current shortcomings in content curation tools and services, and what we features and innovations we might see in this developing market. From the author:


"In the near future it is likely that new content curation tools will provide more dedicated features for specific application and uses while becoming more aware of user needs that so far have not been taken into serious consideration (attribution, archiving, monetizing).

While large content curation hubs and platforms are likely to start realizing that their best value yet to be extracted is in the content being curated by their users, new tools will likely target more specific and professional uses rather than the general public needing simply to collect and repost content on their blog or social media channel."
