Russian investor Yuri Milner — whose firm has invested in fast-growing start ups like Facebook Inc. — said Wednesday that a good cue to exit investments is when the company’s founders start to exit.
Curation We largely invest in consumer web services with a large number of engaged users where the users create the content. Services like this can become messy and hard to navigate.
I keep hearing people throw around the word “curation” at various conferences, most recently at SXSW. The thing is most of the time when I dig into what they are saying they usually have no clue about what curation really is or how it could be applied to the real-time world. So, over the past few months I’ve been talking to tons of entrepreneurs about the tools that curators actually need and I’ve identified seven things.
Fark has been a longstanding aggregator of news site for more than a decade. Has Facebook's 'Like' killed off curators?
Steven Rosenbaum is a curator, author, filmmaker and entrepreneur. He is the CEO of Magnify.net, a real-time video curation engine for publishers, brands, and websites.

Storify: Social Media Curation And Storytelling Storify is a tool that allows users to ‘create stories using social media’. Storify caught our attention because it taps into two macro-level trends, or notions that we’ve been discussing for some time – curation and storytelling. The tool has applicability for journalists, bloggers, professionals, brands and even casual, personal online storytelling (i.e., “storifying” personal travels). One feature we found particularly noteworthy about Storify – vs. other curation tools like Posterous or Tumblr – is the ability to create a story utilizing specific lines of text from a larger story (that most relevant to the story you’re trying to tell).
