Reading: Machines Can Filter Only Humans Can Curate | My Gems |

This is an interesting article, good suggestions.




"Note: This is a follow-up to my earlier post on Curation in the Enterprise, and seeks to develop some of the themes introduced there.] F...


s can filter. Only humans can curate.When a human curates, she does three things. She selects something (or things) from a larger group. She organises those selections cohesively. And she arranges to present those things in such a way that people find it easy to engage with those things.


What I thought I’d do in this post is to look at all this a little more closely, all in the context of the social enterprise.


First, let’s look at selection.


The simplest and commonest form of selection in social networks is the asymmetric follow (a phrase I first heard used by James Governor). You follow someone or something, you subscribe to that someone or something. Elect to receive updates, alerts, reports. That doesn’t mean they follow you.

Curation platforms vs Search engines

Curation platforms vs Search engines | My Gems |

This is an interesting comparison  and I think it's a good start....... search and curation continue to evolve and there's lots more to this story, stay tuned...........




Curation platforms vs Search engines Nowadays, search engines like Google are essential tools for every Internet work. But are they the best place to search anything? We believe that a manual...


Search engines present a list of content, ranked by a relative relevance between the results. Curation platforms like Bundlr present themed groups of content, usually ranked by popularity, but always highlighting the author of the selection.


Search engines work better when:


We’re looking for definite answers The source long term authority matters The quantity of results is important


Curation platforms work better when:


Events are recent or on-going (and traditional sources are slow to catch up) There are multiple points of view Concrete example are prefered to definitions

Wow Jan,
This is a great one. Notice I commented on this at the end of the post using Facebook. If you send me a facebook request, you can comment back anytime you like and also be notified if someone else happens to comment on your curation. I gotta do some training now back for more later Thiis is great. Did you know you can also share any other Scoop you like from another curator??
