March 31, 2011 | 26 Comments Curation has always been an underrated form of creation. The Getty Center in Los Angeles is one of the most frequently visited museums in America – and started as a private art collection from one man (J. Paul Getty) who had a passion for art. Aside from a few well known examples like this one, however, the term curation has rarely been used outside of the world of art … until now. One of the hottest trends in social media right now is content curation – thanks in no small part to the leading efforts of several thought leaders actively promoting the idea.
On January 30th, I’m speaking at the Social Media for Nonprofits in New York City. (You can get a discount of $20 off the registration by entering the code “Beth” when you sign up although the discount only works on the more expensive tickets). This year, since content curation , is a social media competency that I’m focusing in my own learning and teaching , I’ll be doing a conversational presentation on the topic. Robin Good , one of the best content curators on the planet, will join me via skype from Italy. In preparation, I’m doing a pre-recorded skype interview with Robin as a back up for a live interview. As is my presenting style, this will be an interactive session.
