The Rise Of The Digital Is Changing Just About Everything About Curation | David Weinberger


I re-scooped this from Giuseppe Mauriello as I felt the somehow inconclusive conclusion was very close to what I personally felt: yes, curation is changing and digital curation will not be the same as it used to be pre-digital. Bottom line is we need to be prepared to live with softer boundaries than before of what is good and what isn’t.

What are the biggest issues to solve in content curation?


This is kind of old but I rediscovered it recently on Quora and I felt it was an interesting opportunity to review what’s been accomplished in 2011 in that respect.
Seb Paquet is an interesting contributor to Social Media and a professor at the University of Quebec in Montreal.
I think 2011 has been a great year for curation : lots of new developments, great improvements on existing platform and raising awareness. It’s interesting to look back at questions like these and measure the progress we’re making both as platform developers and as members of a community with a particular interest on that subject.

The demise of quality content on the web

This a great blog post from Rian van der Merwe , describing the noise you can find on the web now, and especially content just created for SEO purposes or advertisers. As many, Rian is tired of it. “I used to believe that if you write with passion and clarity about a topic you know well […]

Do we need an Information Diet?

This makes me want to read the book and know more.  Clay Johnson seems to make an interesting parallel between the way we consume information today and the way we sometimes overconsume food. Leading to obesity and other health consequences. Are curators the chefs of the “nouvelle cuisine” of information? (Thanks to @Charles_Liebert for sharing […]

The Art of Curation Class at pariSoma: Teaching a Passion

Can you teach how to be authentic and engage online? I absolutely believe it especially when we talk about curation. We are all natural curators. We have all a passion, a message, a topic we love to focus on or to talk about with others.
This Monday, at pariSoma in San Francisco, it was “the art of curation” for me. I was introducing my series by presenting what a curator is to me, and exploring why curation is important for an individual or a brand in the digital age of information overload.

The end of the so-called digital life

Scoop.It was proud to be a media partner at last Saturday’s TEdxSoMa, which is hosted twice a year by pariSoma. The topic of this edition was “Community 2.0”

TEDxSF on Scoop.it: Maximum Visibility

This weekendʼs TEDxSF “Alive! Maximum Living as a Human” was everything you expect from a TEDx: inspiring, surprising, moving. Scoop.it was proud to be there at the Yerba Buena Center For The Arts as a media partner. I have to confess I was very proud to see and feel how useful our platform was to spread the word before the event, to capture the atmosphere during it and keep the conversation engaged after. The TEDxSF team was a great partner as they really wanted to explore and leverage as much as possible Scoop.it especially with our latest release “Scoop.it everywhere”.

Blogging Strategies Summit San Francisco-June 14-16 2011

When the word “blog” arrived in our vocabulary in the late 90’s, it was a new way of communicating using a new disruptive medium, the Internet. 10 years later, blogging is reinventing itself. It probably comes as no surprise that we believe here at Scoop.it that curation is playing a huge part in the evolution […]

TNW Conference: The Human Conference

Guillaume and I, explaining to Robert Scoble why the new Scoop.It coming next week is AWESOME ;)

Sometimes, you just have the feeling the stage could be […]

SXSWi: Making sense of all the noise

sxsw-logo12

Why does SXSW matter? Because it’s SXSW! It gets people excited, fills teams and startups full of hope and focus for a few weeks, or months, and they all then bring this energy to Austin. This naive “I will be the change maker of the year” will suddenly meet the more cynical old players, who feel at home at the festival, who know which streets you should take between two parties to meet the “right people” before hitting the “right places” to be identified as the “right projects”. You start in this endless chase, or at least I did at the beginning.
