Organizing Resources and Maintaining Them Over Time: That's What A Curator Does - The Discipline of Organizing


Via Robin Good

Robin Good's curator insight, November 24, 2013 12:50 PM


The Discipline of Organizing is a book, published by the MIT Press that offers a framework for the theory and practice of organizing anything. 
 

A short, 7-page PDF synthesizing and introducing the book main ideas has just been published as part of the latest Bulletin of the Association for Information Science and Technology (Vol.40- N.1).


The PDF, as well as the book, have been authored by Robert G. Glushko (who teaches in the School of Information at the University of California, Berkeley) and, as I mentioned, are devoted to introduce the relevance of the TDO (The Discipline of Organizing) to anyone involved in organizing and maintaining content archives or in curating any type of digital content online. 

 From the PDF:

"A set of resources is transformed by an organizing system when the resources are described or arranged to enable interactions with them.


Explicitly or by default, this transformation requires many interdependent decisions about the identities of resources; their names, descriptions and other properties; the classes, relations, structures and collections in which they participate; and the people or technologies that interact with them.


These decisions and the analysis needed to make them have been systematized in The Discipline of Organizing, recently published by MIT Press in both print and eBook formats." 


The PDF provides a good starting point to start asking the right questions needed to develop an organizing framework and to understand why they are so relevant.


"A very practical implication of teaching organizing using more generic concepts and vocabulary is that it enables students to obtain jobs with firms that might not otherwise hire them.

For example, a student who says she knows about curation can’t as easily sell her skillsto a business looking for someone to develop a business continuity plan as one who recognizes that “organizing resources and maintaining them overtime” is the skill the company wants and the one she has.
"


My comment: Useful for defining an organizing framework for anyone new to doing it. Could be more pragmatic and example-rich.  6/10

more than only rescooping, I would like to say that it is the challenge of every scientist, researcher, MD, and particularly university teacher who has to surf on waves of information. Curation, and especially scoop.it helps to keep abreast and more importantly to organize or at least to save and find again what has been collected in the cloud!

Happy/sad music affects how we see neutral faces

moderate noise level is great for creativity.

Different genres correspond to personalities, e.g.

Blues fans have high self-esteem, are creative, outgoing, gentle and at easeJazz fans have high self-esteem, are creative, outgoing and at easeClassical music fans have high self-esteem, are creative, introvert and at easeRap fans have high self-esteem and are outgoing

How to Lead When Employees Don't Want to Follow

How to Lead When Employees Don't Want to Follow | Helpful things | Scoop.it

Employees aren't going to like every decision you make. Strong leaders, though, know how to rally the troops, even around an initially unpopular idea.

 

Whatever you do, you can't buckle under unpopularity: Sooner or later you encounter fierce resistance. Leadership feels a lot like peddling uphill, swimming upstream, or running into a stiff headwind. The challenge is to overcome the resistance instead of being overwhelmed by it.

The article talks about how to be successful coming from those who are extremely successful, such as Mark Zuckerberg. It says what type of attitude to have when addressing things. The attitude you should have is one of not being afraid to take chances and persevere when the going gets tough.

Kira Saini's curator insight, March 6, 2014 9:25 AM

This article is discussing the skills that successful entrepreneurs have. Out of all the skills, striving to work harder and increase your intelligence to reduce making mistakes can be connected to them. This article basically says that learning is more important to being successful than proving you are smart.

The #1 Problem Every Leader Has But Isn't Aware Of

The #1 Problem Every Leader Has But Isn't Aware Of | Helpful things | Scoop.it

The job of every leader is to avoid, minimise or altogether eliminate problems. When the inevitable problems do arise, it’s a leader’s job to turn said problems into opportunity. The issue is this; most leaders are woefully inept when it comes to problem solving.

 

Pick any leadership challenge and it boils down to a problem solving issue nothing more, nothing less. Issues surrounding talent, finance, public policy, operations, strategy, social purpose, execution, competition, litigation, etc., are simply problems to be solved.

10 Tips for an Awesome Coffee Meeting

10 Tips for an Awesome Coffee Meeting | Helpful things | Scoop.it

If the concept of a coffee meeting is foreign to you, you only have to remember one guiding principle: never, ever waste the other person’s time. They are providing their time, their most precious resource. The good news is that the bar for coffee meetings is pretty low. Most creatives can likely tell you of meetings that started with “lets grab coffee” and ended in an unproductive conversation.

 

However, you’re better than that, dear reader. Here’s how to be the best coffee meeting participant around.

The Simplest Way To Know What Everyone's Doing At Work

The Simplest Way To Know What Everyone's Doing At Work | Helpful things | Scoop.it

One of the biggest challenges of knowledge work is its lack of visibility. Getting a clear picture of what’s going on in a collection of minds, including your own, is much more difficult than seeing the visible progress of constructing a house or assembling a physical product. And when you can’t see what you’re building together as a company, it takes extra time, effort, and work to manage problems, progress, and processes.

 

So how do you make the invisible visible?

In the modern often remote workplace sharing work is essential to an efficient and collaborative team. Writing is the simple powerful tool that can.

Lisa Armstrong's curator insight, November 23, 2013 12:11 AM

It's a confronting notion. Of all the hours dedicated to team meetings,  review workshops, project review meetings .... across our organisations. And we still don't know what employees and teams are truly doing. A poor ROI indeed!

Social media enables employee and team connectivity beyond the confines of any meeting. Employees can post pix and videos of their lunch and others can like, comment or share their experiences. Challenge is how we have them connect and interact about deeper content than their lunch. Connect and interact with content about their job. That's the leadership knack!

Daniel Watson's curator insight, October 31, 2013 11:38 PM

 

Most business owners take a very singular perspective when it comes deriving profit from their businesses, and these owners overlook the sometimes more lucrative, but not as obvious, ways to profit in their business.

 

Every business has three stages in its lifecycle that are important to success for business owners, and each of these stages, offers the opportunity to maximise the overall profits that the business is capable of generating.

 

This excellent article, suggests that understanding the three different profit sources of any business will make a significant difference to the way in which you view and manage your business, and it identifies each of these profit sources and sadvises on how to maximise each of these avenues to greater profits.

Business owners and managers are well served when they hone their public speaking skills.  Good delivery engages your audience and ensures your message is heard.   There is nothing worse than sitting in the audience when the speaker isn't in touch with the audience and delivers their message poorly.
