Overuse of “Curating” Reaches an All-Time High, Local Blog Notices

The post comes in response to a lecture put on by the popular Creative Mornings event series in Brooklyn by artist and TED-Talker Jonathan Harris, who argued, “Curation is replacing creation as a mode of self-expression.” Well, that grandiose claim is pretty easy to debunk, as Awl editor Choire Sicha promptly does: “For starters, ‘curation’ is choosing among things that are created.” The general misuse of the word “curate” seems to be a result of the mass adoption of online social networks that let users share whatever text, images, and videos they feel are worth sharing.
