The Key Added Value a Content Curator Can Provide: His Time

The Key Added Value a Content Curator Can Provide: His Time | Gestión de conocimiento |

"I still have to do all the searching for new and good content sources and filtering the content I get. Separating the crap from the awesome. All by myself. This is hard work and very time consuming"

Dorlee Michaeli's curator insight, November 24, 2015 9:07 PM

Robin Good wisely notes that the added value a curator brings to the table is his/her time, the judgment of whether the particular article(s) are of value and what items to highlight.

Jeff Domansky's comment, August 3, 2016 2:30 AM
Robin, my view is that better tools help us be better curators. Finding higher quality content faster allows more quality time for curators to add more valuable insight. I welcome better time-saving tools. Cheers!
Robin Good's comment, August 3, 2016 5:00 AM
Jeff: Like if we got a better Photoshop we could do better images. The talent is not in the tools, but in our heads. Tools can help, but they can't make you do better work than what you are capable of. Practice is what does it. My two cents.

I like this quote from the article

"Curation is about people. It’s about knowing what people want, when they want it, and how they want it. As smart as computers are (and will be), I think we all appreciate the front-and-center engagement of humans with high degrees of expertise in certain subjects, guiding the curation process."

Lori Wilk's curator insight, January 12, 2014 7:28 PM

Content curation will continue to grow and curators will get more help from computers to get the work done.

Curative Thinkers and Solution Connectors

Curative Thinkers and Solution Connectors | Gestión de conocimiento |

Robin Good: In the age of global, collective and crowdsourced interaction, many among us are starting to play the role of "connectors". We help like-minded people find each other, or good and complementary ideas to meet halfway. 


Here is an interesting take from Nick Kellet on the possible different types of "connectors" out there, among which he identifies also a "solution connector", or someone able to pull together different information, resources and ideas to tell a story or to cover an issue/topic like a museum curator would do.


From the original article: "Are you an Solution Connector? > CURATIVE THINKER


...A solution connector isn't someone who create new ideas per se, being curative is just a different kind of creative.


They think a little more like a museum curator – they tell a story.


Their special skill is deciding which bits to keep and which to remove. They put together a Solution or an Exhibit. They let the whole idea tell a story. They assemble.


...Another metaphor is standing on the shoulders of giants. I watched this done brilliantly by Dave Kellogg whilst at Business Objects. Dave is a master of assembling ideas from across the gene pool and then crafting a wonderful story.

For me I’ve learned that Curation is far more effective and far more scalable than Creative Thinking.


...Curation Thinking is on the rise."

5 Best Practices Every Content Curator Should Follow

5 Best Practices Every Content Curator Should Follow | Gestión de conocimiento |

I selected this piece by Steve Rosenbaum for Mashable because there are some excellent tips to make you a trusted source, build a loyal following and add value to the community.


I don't know about you but everytime I read a post about curation, I see something different, this one is from someone who knows what he's talking about.


Here are some highlights:


Be part of the content ecosystem


**What a curator should do is embrace content both as a marketer and an organizer


Follow a schedule


**No matter what and how much you post, 2 new links a day and one big post per week, that's a schedule


**Be consistent and post at the same time everyday so your readers will know when to expect new content


**consistency and regularity brings new users and helps you build a loyal fan base


Embrace multi platforms


**Put your work where your audience is, today you have to go to them (more about this in the article)


Engage and Participate


**Select only the best content - read everything before you hit the send button - you'll build trust by helping your readers find great content and information


**This is a great way to build relationships with bloggers and other curators (more on this in the article)


Share, Don't Steal


**Last but definitely not least, you must acknowledge the source, there are no exceptions


**When people choose to listen to you, it's because you've proven to separate the signal from the noise

What Is Curation and Why It's So Relevant? [Video]

Robin Good: A great video animation introducing some of the key ideas, dreams and concepts behind content curation.


From the video: "One of the most beautiful things about the Internet is this sort of radical discovery, where you start in a place that you are familiar with, that you trust, and then you drill down and down and chase the white rabbit and then you end up in some wonderland you didn't know existed." 


The clip includes thoughts from some unique curators, picked and selected by Percolate, the company sponsoring this video. 


Inspiring. Insightful. 8/10

Content Curators Will Be The New Great (Specialized) Newspapers [Video]

Robin Good: John McCarus, SVP for Brand Content at Digitas, ignites an interesting panel about content creation vs content curation.


This is the second in a series of three videos highlighting a 2012 conversation on the future of media on the social web organized by Ben Elowitz, CEO of Wetpaint.

The nicely edited video, brings up in its four minutes, some valuable takes and opinions on how curation is perceived, used and modulated to achieve different results and objectives.


From mere republishing and copying of someone else materials without attribution or credit (certainly not something to be categorized under "curation") to the new cadre of emerging journalists, who not only write, but also monitor, research, pre-digest and cull the most interesting content - not written by them - for their own audiences.


Key takeaways:

“A curator is an editor, essentially. You become a trusted source by doing the hard work for your audience and telling them what’s important, whether you’ve written it or not.

Traditionally that’s been the role of great newspapers; now that function is being spread across the web.”
Erick Schonfeld, TechCrunch

-> Publishers have a love / hate relationship with curators.


-> Curators help to expand a publisher’s reach, but the publisher risks losing credit (and traffic).


-> Curators who link back and republish only enough to pique interest will keep publishers happy.


“It’s like the forest episode of Planet Earth: the animal eats the nectar and sort of destroys the plant but spreads the pollen all over.”

Jason Hirschhorn, Media ReDEFined


Interesting. 7/10

Creative Commons Licenses and Attribution: How To Embed Them Inside Your Digital Content

Creative Commons Licenses and Attribution: How To Embed Them Inside Your Digital Content | Gestión de conocimiento |

Robin Good: JISC provides a very well documented guide to the use of Creative Commons licences (also referred to as CC licences) which can greatly facilitate the copying, reuse, distribution, and in some cases, the modification of the original owner’s creative work without needing to get permission each time from the original rights holder.


In addition to this the correct use and embedding of CC license may greatly help in the effort to make original sources more transparent to the final reader, in many context, including news and content curation efforts of many kinds.


Creative Commons licences can be embedded into a variety of resources, such as PowerPoint, images, Word docs, elearning resources, podcasts and other audio visual resources.


While specifically prepared for UK public sector organizations this document can be quite useful for anyone interested in the use of CC licenses to distribute digital content online.


Key Benefits of embedding CC licences for content curation and attribution:

It can help the user see that the resource is an 'open' resource and licensed under a specific CC licence terms
  It can help reduce the future 'orphan works' (works for which the rights holders are unknown or cannot be traced), and assist in creation of appropriate attribution, citation and potential negotiation for further permissions. By embedding the selected CC licence to the licence details even if the resource gets detached from its metadata. This is particularly the case if the resource is found via a search engine instead of the original website platform which might host specific copyright restrictions.

Curators: A Herculean Task Is Ahead of You - and Be Careful

Curators: A Herculean Task Is Ahead of You - and Be Careful | Gestión de conocimiento |

Steven Rosenbaum has an interesting article on Fast Company, outlining the reasons why curation is here to stay and the importance that curators will play in your information consumption diet.


He writes: "...So anyone who steps up and volunteers to curate in their area of knowledge and passion is taking on a Herculean task.


They're going to stand between the web and their readers, using all of the tools at their disposal to "listen" to the web, and then pull out of the data stream nuggets of wisdom, breaking news, important new voices, and other salient details.


It's real work, and requires a tireless commitment to being engaged and ready to rebroadcast timely material.


While there may be an economic benefit for being a "thought leader" and "trusted curator," it's not going to happen overnight.


Which is to say, being a superhero is often a thankless job.


The growth in content, both in terms of pure volume and the speed of publishing, has raised some questions about what best practices are in the curation space."


He also has some pretty straightforward advice on what, as a curator, you should never do:


"1. If you don't add context, or opinion, or voice and simply lift content, it's stealing.


2. If you don't provide attribution, and a link back to the source, it's stealing.


3. If you take a large portion of the original content, it's stealing.


4. If someone asks you not to curate their material, and you don't respect that request, it's stealing.


5. Respect published rights. If images don't allow creative commons use, reach out to the image creator--don't just grab it and ask questions later."


And he definitely has a point on all of these. 


Recommended. 7/10

Make Your Business the Go-To Resource by Curating Great Content

Make Your Business the Go-To Resource by Curating Great Content | Gestión de conocimiento |

This piece is from senseiblog. I selected it because it reaffirms the importance of using content curation as a part of your content marketing strategy.


Here are some highlights:


"Content doesn’t always have to be content from your organization, your clients just need to be able to access it through you. Let’s be honest, creating enough content to fulfill demand is a daunting task".


**Quality content is a sustainable competitive advantage


**the ultimate goal of your online presence should be to become a “Go To” source of information that your stakeholders log onto with increasing or sustainable frequency.


**Once achieved, the differentiation this status gives you becomes widespread generating respect, appreciation and business from both new and existing customers.


 **in the grand scheme of things, content curation is an essential part of carving out a position for your brand.


**The best strategy is to curate or create content that best meets the need of your stakeholders.


**What’s missing most of the time is the incentive to be social. What is the best incentive?


It is the ability to contribute in a meaningful way



**Great content starts conversations which leads to engagement and relationships.


**by adding context, some examples are links to other sources who provide more insight on the topic, expressing your viewpoint, asking questions, inviting others to comment and continue the dialogue.  


Content creation, content curation and the ability to give meaningful feedback on it effectiveness is a highly engaging way to involve hundreds, if not thousands of internal staff.

Introduction to Content Curation for Marketers by Sue McKittrick

Introduction to Content Curation for Marketers by Sue McKittrick | Gestión de conocimiento |

Liz Wilson: A good introduction for any marketer thinking about beginning with curation as part of their content marketing strategy. 


I chose this article because I sometimes think that we can easily assume that most everyone understands what curation is. But most probably the vast majority of small or medium-sized businesses do not (I'm thinking particulary of the UK).


Sue McKittrick (an analyst working on content strategy and more - aims her introductory curation article at marketers who are confused about curation, or who have very little knowledge. 


As a real-world example she utilizes Adobe's highly successful online curated magazine, while also providing a shortlist of some of the best enterpise curation tools available out there. 


If you are briefing a new client that is considering "content curation" as a strategy, this would be a useful article to leave with them.
