Stephen Dale's curator insight, December 19, 2013 3:51 AM

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."

janlgordon's curator insight, November 9, 2013 11:10 AM

Angela Dunn has written a great piece on one of my favorite topics, curation - it was the lead post on our launh of Curatti last night.


What makes a good curator?


"You need to have the eye of an editor, a sense of taste like a chef, and your own unique Point of View. It is this Point of View – your taste – that can lead to authority and influence".


Jan Gordon:

 

Curators who are driven by passion and purpose will be very important to the business community in their chosen niche - it's crucial that we preserve this information for the future. That is why the future of curation is definitely evergreen.


Here are some highlights that caught my attention:


The amount of content is growing exponentially, but our time is limited. Curators are our filters for information overload – the editors of chaos.


The slew of content curation tools that emerged gave way to algorithms. Can a machine have a Point of View? Machines can influence your Point of View. The danger is they can also create a filter bubble.


It is human insight coupled with machine results that can define the very best information edited from a trusted curator’s Point of View.


Evergreen posts, such as “Curating Content for Thought Leadership”,, written by Angela in 2010 are important in that they stand the test of time.  All good blogs need some such articles.


The above, along with all of Angela's posts on the now defunct Postereus, have evergreen links due to a new tool for archiving the web  – Permamarks.

La curaduría de contenidos como modelo de negocios, por Robin Good.

Prof. Hankell's curator insight, August 7, 2013 10:19 AM
Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Mitch Free writes on Forbes about the unique business value that curation can bring to those markets where there is already an abundance of choices.

 

"The web has revolutionized access to information. If you travel to a new city, you don’t have to wait to ask a hotel concierge or local contact which restaurants are worth your time: that information is at your fingertips long before you arrive.


The web’s universality and ubiquity are also its weaknesses, however: even if all are listed online, choosing from the 25,000 restaurants in New York City still requires a local’s advice.


While “curation” might bring to mind the image of a red-jacketed museum staffer scowling at you for taking flash photographs, in the digital age it’s becoming an increasingly critical – and lucrative – business model.


No longer is access to information precious in itself. Information is overwhelmingly available, and those in a position to tame the tidal wave into a useful format offer a valuable service."

 

The articles uses as a reference example the case of a new restaurant listing site that curates the best 100 restaurants in 100 cities by charging qualifying restaurants.

 

 

Rightful. Interesting. 7/10

Non-Profits are a commodity. There are over 1.5 million of them in the US alone, all with great causes, all with their hands out to ask for money. Enter Donor Fatigue.  Want to stand out? Become "the" source of information on your cause. In other words, give to get.  You will stand out. You will gain trust.  And, you will raise money.

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Everytime I see a new post or article claiming to list the best content curation tools I know I am in for some disappointment.

 

Most of these lists just pick up names from other lists without even bothering to check, test or verify what these tools actually do, whether they are still available. Unfortunately the rush to put out "curated" list of tools and services has created more misinformation than useful lists. 

 

But if you, like me, are on the lookout for new and effective tools to curate your own content or the one of your customers, I have created a comprehensive map of all the curation tools available online and I keep it fresh and updated almost on a daily basis.

 

The map presently lists over 250 content curation tools which you can navigate much more easily than it was possible on my earlier versions of this map.

 

On the right side of the map you will find all of the news and content curation tools available online today. On the left side, you can find bookmarking, link lists builders, clippers and lots of tools to operate with RSS feeds (which are still at the heart of a curator's job).

Content Curation Can Help Education System Breed Future Workskills

Content Curation Can Help Education System Breed Future Workskills | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are interested in exploring content curation as a possible venue for innovating teaching and learning approaches, you will find lots of valuable information in this new article by @NancyW entitled Developing Future Workskills Through Content Curation.

 

In it she points to a study conducted last year, the Apollo Research Institute Future Workskills 2020, that identifies critical workskills needed for future jobs and how fitting "content curation" may be in cultivating and refining many of those.

 

She writes: "A closer look suggests that critical workforce skills identified in this \ study can be easily aligned with the skills practiced with content curation.


The skills a student employs to successfully curate information include curiosity, media literacy, ability to make connections across disciplines, information literacy, the ability to evaluate and understand perspective, synthesize and evaluate information, and a good dose of self-direction."

 

"Future Workskills 2020 suggests a monumental shift and change needs to begin now in our education system.

 

These skills can be developed through the process of content curation.

 

Content curation has the added benefit of helping students find their passions for and take ownership of their learning..."

 

 

Right on target. Recommended. 8/10

Tools for Taming the Media - All Things Digital

Tools for Taming the Media - All Things Digital | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

June 27 2012, AllThingsDigital [...] "asked a couple of power users — Clay Shirky and John Battelle — to share their go-to media apps" for content curation...

 

Therese's comment: Very interesting to see that power users use relatively classic tools like Google alerts, RSS reader like Netvibes, aggregators like Flipboard, social bookmarking like Redit, emails from News.me, thelistserve, Netvibes, News.Me, RSS, Shrook, Slashdot, TechMeme, The
Browser, thelistserve.com, Twitterand... human curators they trust like Conor Friedersdorf.

 

I love the quote by Clay Shorky: "The trick is to adopt both tools and practices that maximize elevance instead of volume, and minimize time spent searching in favor of time spent reading. Tools can help with that (as with News.me), but the most important thing isn't the tool, but the mindset of the user."

Content Curation and the Future of Campus Bookstores by Daniel W. Rasmus

Content Curation and the Future of Campus Bookstores by Daniel W. Rasmus | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Daniel W. Rasmus has an interesting article on his blog entitled: "The Future of Campus Stores: Good-Bye Books, Hello Learning". In it he analyzes the key elements that will help such campus stores maintain their relevancy while traditional textbooks are rapidly loosing thir foothold inside academic campuses.

 

He writes: "College bookstores face an existential crisis with the looming demise of physical book sales as digital technology rapidly becomes an option for learners.

 

At the same time free content, via websites like the Kahn Academy, or through more proprietary means, like Apple’s iTunes University (now iTunes U).

 

And then there is the rise of open sourced content available places like the Open Education Resources Commons (OER).

 

So what should college stores consider as the elements that will help make them relevant as their core mission apparently shifts?"

 

And one of the key elements that he sees potentially providing new

meaning and relevance to campus bookstores, as a knowledge service, is content curation.

 

"One specific instance of high-quality, knowledge-based service is content curation.

 

As the content world becomes more complex, the college store can offer value added resources to faculty and students to help them understand the options they have, and the relative value of different sources of information and approaches to the delivery of that information.

 

Think about content now as software. The educator can write a specification or requirements document and the store team, like programmers, can assemble a solution for the educator that meets his or her specification. Like programmers, the language or technique doesn’t matter to the solution recipient, what matters is that the software meets the requirements and delivers its expected value."

 

Insightful. Forward-looking. 8/10

Critical Aspects of Content Curation In The Newsroom: Link and Attribution Are Essential - Steve Buttry

Critical Aspects of Content Curation In The Newsroom: Link and Attribution Are Essential - Steve Buttry | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Steve Buttry, who has already written several articles on content curation (see the end of his original article), just published this in-depth essay celebrating the launch of a new curation team at Digital First Media and pointing to many of the critical factors neeeded for a content / news curator to be effective.

 

He covers a lot ground while giving a particular emphasis to the importance of linking and attribution. He writes: "Where you can’t learn much about the source of content you’re curating, consider crowdsourcing the question: Note the name and organization, tell readers what you’ve found and that you’re continuing research and ask them what they know about the source.


Where the source of online content is unclear, you should be clear about what you know and where you found the material."

 

and...

 

"Sometimes the name of a person or organization is not sufficient attribution.

 

If the person or organization is not well-known, do a little research (Google will provide quick answers in many cases; sometimes an “about us” page will help).

 

Especially in political content, you want to note whether you are linking to partisan sources. A liberal or conservative think tank or political action committee is an entirely different kind of source from a professional media outlet or an independent fact-checking site."

 

Steve Buttry also includes some valuable key guidelines on "how to add value" when curating content and suggests several types of curation approaches that can be used in the newsroom.

 

Good advice on curation and practical tips. 8/10

Robin Good's curator insight, November 6, 2013 6:11 PM



Pinboard is a social bookmarking service which allows you to easily save and organize any number of links, with no limits on text descriptions. Pinboard is characterized by having a no-frills, simple interface, by being very speedy and reliable and by being able to import, sync and export all of your links easily.


Pinboard integrates also a powerful web caching and indexing feature available to "pro" accounts ($25/year) which allows you to keep a full cached and searchable copy of any bookmark you save.


Advanced edit tagging, filtering and bundling features make it easy to oganize and find links even inside very large collections.

Links saved can be set to be public or private.


All of the bookmarks saved inside Pinboard can be easily exported in a standard file format. A set of basic APIs is also available.


You can import all your existing bookmarks from Delicious, Google Bookmarks, Diigo, Firefox, Safari, and many other sources by following the instructions on the howto page.


A very useful feature called Tab Sets allows to quickly save all of your currently open browser tabs to Pinboard having the unique advantage of being able to re-open them even if you're on another machine or in a different browser. 


N.B.: The site has a unique and now proven business model and is entirely self-funded. Ad-free.


My comment: Excellent bookmarking service for anyone in need of a no-frill, reliable and fast tool. The archiving feature is particularly valuable as well as the auto-syncing with multiple services (Instapaper, Read It Later, Twitter. Delicious).


The service has a one-time fee of around $10.

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, October 16, 2013 4:02 PM

Henry Copeland (@hc) is the Internet marketing genius behind blogads and a good friend of my friend Phil Buckley's (@1918). I promise to do another post on how cool Blogads is (http://web.blogads.com/ ), but Phil shared something at lunch today that has my palms sweating it is so exciting.

Why Pull Quote Is So Cool
Curators on Scoop.it like Robin (@RobinGood), Guillaume (@Gdecugis) and Ally (@AllyGreer) will get how cool Henry's pullquote app is immediately. The app allows you to "pull" a piece of content from a favorite post, share it on social media and be able to curate your "pulled" stack.

I've been writing about the "snipitization" and "appification" of everything and Henry just proved the point. Curators usually LOVE 10% of a post, like another 20% and can take or leave the rest.

Now, thanks to Henry's very cool app you can create this:

http://www.pullquote.com/hc/files/innovation

 

That link is to Henry's PullQuotes tagged "innovation". Here is the link to all of his curated groups:

http://www.pullquote.com/hc

 

Every curator out there is now fully focused on THIS piece (lol). Not an easy feat, but that is the power of Henry's brilliant idea. Henry's PullQuote App is like a writers index cards ONLY there is a special secret.

Let's move all the way through Henry's invention.

http://www.pullquote.com/hc/files/innovation

We click on the first pullquote and get this page:

http://www.pullquote.com/quote/hc/IKVsU2

Click on the tiny URL at the top to get this page:

http://pullquote.com/pq/IKVsU2

Click on the post link at the bottom and we've arrived back at the ScienceDaily post Henry pulled from

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/09/130912095241.htm#pq=IKVsU2

PullQuote just built curated relationships between content snippets Henry tags as "innovation", but those new relationships don't break the link back to the post.

Imagine how much easier it will be to write a post about innovation with PullQuote. Creators can go to their tagged "innovation" basket and find cool references and relationships they didn't even know existed.

Now let’s fast forward into the curation implications. I read a TON of content every day. I have to read mountains of content because things I read yesterday aren't categorized and tagged.

Scoop.it is great and using its FILTERS must have saved a year of my life. Problem is we lack this view:

http://www.pullquote.com/hc

That view of the tages you use is an incredible feedback loop because you can see how rich each "basket" is. Henry has 22 PullQuotes in innovation and so it ranks among his top interests exceeded only by health.

By curating the QUOTE we can easily arrange our baskets so writing or curating a post about innovation takes MUCH LESS TIME. If Scoop.it could add a tag cloud view across all feeds much the same benefit could be created (from a dashboard) perspective.

I see PullQuote and Scoop.it as natural allies. When something BIG about Google is blooming on Scoop.it then a quick check of PullQuotes curated and tagged as Google might lend weight and credibility to a Scoop or blog post (and then a Scoop or social feed).

Did you see the secret? The secret is since you are only grabbing pieces of many articles overhead is a fraction of what storing the article would be. With the way the cloud is today I bet you could PullQuote the galaxy and it wouldn't require much backend iron to support.

The real benefit is in how we as curators and creators will learn to create and cross index our cards (PullQuotes). Any tools like Scoop.it and PullQuote that promise MORE even as they require LESS has my attention. What about you?

Bravo Henry!

Robin Good: Paper.li one of the early players in the news aggregation, discovery and auto-curation space has been significantly improving its service which now offers also a $9/month Pro version.

 

Paper.li allows you to set a number of search queries on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, YouTube and to import specific RSS feeds to "aggregate" the most relevant on a certain topic or theme.

 

You as a curator can "preview" your yet-to-be-published news magazine and can manually pick and decide which "stories" to publish and which ones to drop by simply hovering your mouse on anyone of them.

 

"Editions" can be auto-scheduled and Paper.li can automatically announce on Twitter and via email to your subscribers when a new one is out.

 

PRO users get to have the last word before any edition gets published, by way of a "preview before promotion" feature that lets you control when notifications go out and gives you time to make changes, can add promotional banners, standard ads or other marketing materials in a set of predefined hot spots on their news page, and can "brand" their magazine with their own banner, background image and personalized colors.

PKM Is Curation For Your Own Personal Growth | Harold Jarche

PKM Is Curation For Your Own Personal Growth | Harold Jarche | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

Robin Good: PKM or Personal Knowledge Management may be indeed a very close relative to Content Curation. But while Content Curation, is done with a specific audience in mind, PKM is done for one's own learning.

Harold Jarche, looks at the relationship between the two and writes:

 

"The most important part of personal knowledge management (PKM), in my opinion, is the need for active sense-making.

 

Merely seeking and sharing information does little other than create more noise online.

Sense-making takes time, discipline, and effort.

 

-> One strength of PKM is the “manual” nature of sense-making activities. The act of writing a blog post, a tweet, or an annotation on a social bookmark all force you to think a bit more than clicking once and filing it to an automated system.

 

-> Sense-making, or placing information into context, is where the real personal value of PKM lies.

 

-> The knowledge gained from PKM is an emergent property of all its activities.

 

Merely tagging an article does not create knowledge. ...


The difference between PKM and Curation is that the former is personal, while the latter is for an intended audience."

 

 

Insightful. 8/10

I have been using his framework for the past year and a half to teach curation to nonprofits. Linking curation to nonprofit staffer work flow is a great way to get people to use curation!

Content Curation: From Information To Knowledge [Video]

Robin Good: Start this video clip at 1':42" (up to 3':30") and you can get a pretty good idea of what a content curator does and why what he does has so much to do with sense-making, making things understandable for others and ultimately extracting contextualized "meaning" from information "as is".

 

Must-see. Excellent. 9/10

 

 

P.S.: Thanks to Howard Rheingold for spotting this clip and sharing it.
