Web Content & Digital Curation

Creating vs. curating. If you work in marketing, or maybe even if you don't, I'm sure you've been a witness to this content debate at one point or another. There are numerous arguments for each side, and ultimately, both are included in any successful content strategy. The ideal mix between content curation and original content creation is a debate that I often find myself having with my colleagues and industry peers. So, in the spirit of Super Bowl XLVIII this weekend, I decided to ask the experts what they thought in a matchup that I've officially dubbed Content Super Bowl I. Web Content & Digital Curation
Content and Curation for Nonprofits Back in 2011, I discovered Harold Jarche's "Seek, Sense, and Share" and made it my three words for the year ( Jane Hart shared an high level overview of her daily routine for content curation or "personal knowledge management" based on Jarche's "Seek, Sense, Share" framework. She describes sense-making as: I use a range of sense-making techniques, eg filters to separate the signal from the noise, and techniques to validate any sources of information I receive – which I have developed over time. Although I trust my network to feed me valid resources, it is always important to check any resources personally to ensure they meet my own high “quality control” standards. I then synthesise any new valuable pieces of information with what I already know, asking myself does this add something key to what I already know, does this take my own thinking forward, or does this even change my thinking about what I already know.

With its tiled layout and gesture-based user interface, it feels very similar to Flipboard's suite of apps. We put both apps side by side to see how the two stack up. Here's how they compare: Design: Tiles And Gestures
Visual Juxtapositions Captures Attention Attention not cash is the most valuable "commodity" in the world. We can make more cash. We can't make more TIME. Attention is under attack. Most curate, read, create and share a variety of content online in a variety of ways daily.

Context Discovery – provider of personal and corporate text summarization, knowledge discovery and text visualization products. and Newsmix Show Glimpses of the Social Content Reader Evolution and Newsmix Show Glimpses of the Social Content Reader Evolution Since early last year I’ve been most excited about the prospect of a service to bring me the perfect “social content reader”. I wrote about what I’d like to see in such a reader, but in a nutshell it would provide me with content daily based on all the items shared by the users I follow on multiple services like Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Youtube, etc. Now you may say that we already have web services or apps that do this but they’re all pretty basic without enough logic to determine better ways for how to display the content.
