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. I’ve had interesting discussions on this before and I’ve heard several say they felt the need for new gatekeepers to be established or recognized. It’s the curating the curators debate. While there are certainly opportunities to shine and be recognized as thought leaders and master curators, I don’t think the digital revolution means we’re going to replace old gatekeepers by new ones. It is much more that there won’t be any more gates, ergo no gatekeepers at all. We’ll all have to learn and educate at the same time on what makes good from bad curation. And when it comes to deciging who’s to trust and who isn’t, the jury will be always on. Just like we now are. (David Weinberger is a fellow at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society)
