-What is curation to you?
Curation offers me the unique privilege of supplying an unlimited amount of information to those that I am honored to have follow me. I am very lucky to have made some amazing friends and wonderful followers by way of social media and I love supplying a variety of information to them. Curation allows me to provide an abundance of information on a variety of topics, way beyond what I could create myself realistically.
-What is your best curating secret?
I don’t really have a secret. I just love providing information that is of value, that can save people time and/or money and that is thought provoking.
-How has curation enriched your social media experience?
Curation has allowed me to provide a wide variety of information to those that follow me. This information goes way beyond any information that I could personally create as it offers a different perspective that, I alone could not offer. Curation allows me to offer a wide variety of perspectives on subjects which hopefully provide food for thought on the topics that I cover.
-You curate many topics around very different subjects such as Gamification, Apple SEO. Would you say that your true passion is curation in itself?
I do indeed cover a variety of subject matters and this is primarily because I have an interest in Future Technologies and the roles that all of these subjects will play in the evolution of the web in the present and future. The topics that I’ve selected are some of the things that play a big part in technology as we know it now and will play a huge role in the evolution of technology in the years to come. So although I do have a true passion for curation, I do view it as a vehicle to transport the data and information to people that have so graced me with the privileged of following me on my social media channels.
