Posted by Tom Foremski - April 12, 2010 My buddy Dave Galbraith is the first person I remember to first start talking about curation and the Internet, several years ago. He even named his company Curations, and created a tool/site for curation: Wists . And his site SmashingTelly - is great example of curation, a hand-picked collection of great videos. Today, much is written about curation and the Internet but it all seems mostly talk because we don't really have the tools we need. Curation seems to be just a new way to describe things like blogging and "Editor's Picks."
The term "curate" is the interactive world's new buzzword. During content creation and governance discussions, client pitches and creative brainstorms, I've watched this word gain traction at almost warp speed. by Jul 14
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. First, who does curation? Bloggers, of course, but blogging is curation for Web 1.0.
I've been playing all day with the new Threadsy, the new Seesmic desktop, the unreleased Brizzly, the new TweetDeck desktop, and the new PeopleBrowsr. It is very hard to tell these apart. That tells me there's a shakeout coming. Or, there's a billion-dollar opportunity none of them are seeing yet. Here's the opportunity: curation. "Oh, Scoble, you are being stupid again," I can just hear some of you saying.

During content creation and governance discussions, client pitches and creative brainstorms, I’ve watched this word gain traction at almost warp speed. As a transplant from museums and libraries into interactive media, I can’t help but ask what is it about this word that deserves redefinition for the web?
Mashable's Pete Cashmore says Digg can rise again if it helps us tackle "information overload." Mashable's Pete Cashmore: Digg could make a comeback on the Web Digg announces it will give users home pages, similar to those on Facebook or Twitter Those pages may give Digg some of its authority and appeal back, Cashmore says Editor's note : Pete Cashmore is founder and CEO of Mashable , a popular blog about social media.

Now we’ve seen what Google has had up its sleeve with Google Buzz. I expect this is the last tool of the atomic age. No, not the energy field, the real-time content field.
