Curate or be curated: 5 laws for the Content Curation Economy

Curate or be curated: 5 laws for the Content Curation Economy | Content curation trends |

Curate or be curated — that’s the new face of digital content in the always-on world.

Guillaume Decugis's insight:

Steve Rosenbaum comes back on why we have information overload but perhaps more interestingly explains why we'll solve it and what are the new laws that will govern this new content economy. 

The 4th law in particular is interesting as very close to our own humanrithm vision: "Curation requires technology and tools to find, filter, and validate content at the speed of the real-time web. Curation can’t simply be a human with a web browser — the mix of man and machine is essential here."

He also describes the profile of these new digital curations and their motivations: "Curators need to be paid to be part of the emerging ecosystem" - not necessarily with cash but through ego, personal development or marketing outcomes.

In a word, content curation can be and will be rewarding.

Makes sense to me.

Curating - how to manage it. And curation experts already exist - they're called Librarians!

Is the Internet Becoming the Bot Net?

Is the Internet Becoming the Bot Net? | Content curation trends |

"On the Internet, we’ve reached a tipping point where more than 50% of all Internet traffic is no longer generated by humans – instead, it's generated by a motley mix of search engine spiders, bots, scrapers, scammers, hackers and, yes, spies. We are no longer talking about the Internet, we are talking about the Bot Net – a “bot-mediated reality” where algorithms and bots influence where we go, how long we spend there and with whom we communicate."


This great pick by Sakis Koukouvis goes on to list impressive facts on how the Internet is being controlled by robots. 


Time to put Human Curation back into the game?

Is Google the Killer of Newspaper Print Ad Sales?

Is Google the Killer of Newspaper Print Ad Sales? | Content curation trends |
The U.S. newspaper industry has lost more than $40 billion in ad revenue in the past decade — over half of that in the last four years alone — and Google’s ad revenues are now more than twice what the industry pulls in.

Guillaume Decugis's insight:

That one graph summarizes very nicely the recent history of the media industry. And if you add Facebook's digital ad sales to the graph (a few billions and probably already bigger than the whole newspaper digital sales or soon to be), you see how newspapers are heavily challenged for readers attention.

Google transformed advs and made them accesible to SME's. So low budget marketing departments can act more easily, even if they run their campain through agances.

@Jalp: good point and an essential reason that drove this change. Not just attention but lowering the barrier to entry. Thanks!

People are always looking to place fault. Things change when something better comes along. Just because newspapers were first doesn't mean they are best. Tobacco knows time is limited, that would explain why they bought Kraft Foods!
