KARST Curatorial Open Call 2014. Abandoned Suitcases Reveal Private Lives of Insane Asylum Patients. If you were committed to a psychiatric institution, unsure if you’d ever return to the life you knew before, what would you take with you?

Abandoned Suitcases Reveal Private Lives of Insane Asylum Patients

That sobering question hovers like an apparition over each of the Willard Asylum suitcases. From the 1910s through the 1960s, many patients at the Willard Asylum for the Chronic Insane left suitcases behind when they passed away, with nobody to claim them. Upon the center’s closure in 1995, employees found hundreds of these time capsules stored in a locked attic. Working with the New York State Museum, former Willard staffers were able to preserve the hidden cache of luggage as part of the museum’s permanent collection. “There were many patients in these asylums who were probably not unlike friends you and I have now.” 10 ways journalists can use Storify. When Storify appeared on the collective journalism screen a few weeks back at TechCrunch Disrupt, it inspired a lot of oohs, ahhs and speculation as to how it would work for journalists.

There are similar curation tools out there, like KeepStream and Curated.by, though they focus primarily on collecting tweets (Correction: KeepStream also allows for Facebook integration). Storify, on the other hand, allows a user to organize various media (text, documents, video, images) and social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) into an orderly, linear presentation. The story pieces retain all of their original links and functionality – and the full presentations are embeddable on any site.

It has a very easy-to-use search for social media keywords and works using a drag-and-drop functionality. What are the best content curation tools for daily use.

The hypnotizing argot of the art world is familiar to anyone who has ever tried to decipher a gallery press release or encountered a nebulous artist statement.

How the Art World's Lingo of Exclusivity Took Root, Branched Out, And Then Rotted From Within

It’s a vocabulary of modified adjectives and abstract nouns, of concepts that get deconstructed and ideas that get interrogated, distributed practices and embraced ambiguity. In a recent article for the innovative web publication Triple Canopy, Alix Rule and David Levine coin the term “International Art English” (shorthanded “IAE,” roughly equivalent to the popular nickname “artspeak”) to describe this language, tracing its history and divining its murky rules.

IAE “always recommends using more rather than fewer words,” the authors write; it “sounds like inexpertly translated French;” is marked by an “uncanny stillness;” and has a heavy “dependence on lists” (guilty as charged). Is linguistic inflation insanely awesome? To continue the semantic theme of my last post, today I want to look at inflation.

Is linguistic inflation insanely awesome?

Linguistic inflation is analogous to economic inflation, but it concerns a devaluation in meaning rather than price. Inflation lies behind the popular use of such words as genius, epic, awesome, totally, and incredible. What they mean is often more modest than their traditional senses suggest: genius means clever, epic is impressive, incredible is surprising. Www.niso.org/publications/rp/framework3.pdf.

Overuse of “Curating” Reaches an All-Time High, Local Blog Notices. Your day in brutal honesty: The Awl’s screaming headline “You Are Not a Curator, You Are Actually Just a Filthy Blogger” pretty much says it all (it’s even tagged “STOP IT”).

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. While curators do, basically, share a lot of things with a captive audience, what they do is quite a bit different from picking out what to put on your Pinterest board of wedding inspiration.

Is "Curate" The Most Abused Fashion Word of 2010? - Rants. Harold Koda runs the Costume Institute at the Met, so he's allowed to describe himself as a curator—it's his professional title. For everyone else, though, it's just a highbrow way of saying "one who picks things out," which describes all style bloggers, retail buyers, and people who get dressed in the morning. We asked a couple fashion writers if they agreed that the term was being abused.

"Yes. It's the marketing buzzword of 2010," wrote Fashionista's Lauren Sherman. A throwdown about the term ‘curator’ « museum geek.
