Robert Scoble On Online Curation

Related:  Content CurationCuration

Librarians Blogging - Library 2.0 I believe in the power of the people. Not in a political way, because I'm not after your vote for anything. But in a social way that is changing how we find information and how marketers communicate with their customers. Technology is an enabler, but the real shift is in people collaborating and sharing an authentic voice. It is why I have written about human filtered search in the past instead of algorithms. It is also why I am writing a book dedicated to exploring the idea of injecting more personality into marketing. That group is part of a phenomenon increasingly known as Library 2.0 and the spokespeople of this revolution are the new generation of Librarians who are blogging, contributing to wikis, using social media to locate and organize information and along the way, reinventing a profession that is likely to be one of the most important careers of the future. Everyone is a content creator and creating content is easier than ever. A Few Library Blogs to Start Reading:

Online Content Curation: The Key To Building Visibility, Authority And Value As you are increasingly submerged by an endless flood of information, online content curators may provide a new, valuable service to anyone looking for quality information online: a personalized, qualified selection of the best and most relevant content and resources on a very specific topic or theme. Curated in real-time. When I first wrote about this, six years ago, I called this type of work newsmastering and newsradars, but now that the real-time element has come into play, as much as social media, video, Twitter and other new content sources, the original idea of what a newsmaster / content curator is and what tools and features are really needed has certainly started to change. Photo credit: Erkin Sahin Robert Scoble has recently posted on his blog a fascinating article entitled: Seven Needs of Real-Time Curators. But let's hit on the brakes for a minute and clearly point out what content curation is and why a "new media guide" like Scoble felt the need to make things clear.

Social Media Content Curation Real-Time News Curation, Newsmastering And Newsradars - The Complete Guide Part 1: Why We Need It The time it takes to follow and go through multiple web sites and blogs takes tangible time, and since most sources publish or give coverage to more than one topic, one gets to browse and scan through lots of useless content just for the sake of finding what is relevant to his specific interest. Even in the case of power-users utilizing RSS feed readers, aggregators and filters, the amount of junk we have to sift through daily is nothing but impressive, so much so, that those who have enough time and skills to pick the gems from that ocean of tweets, social media posts and blog posts, enjoy a fast increasing reputation and visibility online.

Thematic and topic-specific news channels have greater affinity with the natural flow of information on the Internet. The Problem

Web Application 1 As the web becomes more and more inundated with blogs, videos, tweets, status updates, news, articles, and countless other forms of content, “information overload” is something we all seem to suffer. It is becoming more difficult to weed through all the “stuff” out there and pluck out the best, most share-worthy tidbits of information, especially if your topic is niche. Let’s face it, Google definitely has its shortcomings when it comes to content curation and the more it tries to cater to all audiences, the less useful it becomes. The demand for timely, relevant content that is specific to our unique interests and perspectives has given rise to a new generation of tools that aim to help individuals and companies curate content from the web and deliver it in a meaningful way. These new tools range from simple, application-specific types such as social media aggregators and discovery engines, to more complex, full-blown publishing solutions for organizations. Comments(65)

Real-Time News Curation - The Complete Guide Part 2: Aggregation Is Not Curation We are no longer just consumers of content, we have become curators of it too. In Part 1 of this Guide I have introduced why we really need real-time news curation and what is the basic idea behind it (Part 1 - Real-Time News Curation, Newsmastering And Newsradars - The Complete Guide Part 1: Why We Need It). In Part 2 I want to continue illustrating what "real-time news curation" is all about, and more specifically why it differs from automatic aggregation, and why you really need a human being to do it. As I see it: "Aggregation is automated, curation is manual." Photo credit: Creativaimage Back in 2004, I wrote an article entitled: The Birth of The Newsmaster. It was my first public realization, that a real-time news curator, which I labeled at the time a "newsmaster", was soon due. It is in the DNA of RSS to be wanting to be free, to be further reused, personalized and syndicated. The problem of information overload is like any other problem, one side of a new, bright opportunity. No.

Curated Content Delivery Formats: Beyond News Portals and Magazines The new frontiers for content curation tools and services are in a) providing advanced collaborative ("social)" features and in b) introducing and integrating new and effective, highly visual, delivery formats. Photo credit: CaraMaria Curating content and news is not just about the selection, editing and contextualization of stories about a specific topic or theme, but it is increasingly about how these information items are (collaboratively) gathered, organized, grouped, displayed and in which ways they can be accessed and browsed by those interested in them. For me, one of the most fascinating aspects of this exploding content curation trend, is the speculative exploration of how "curated" content collections could best benefit from alternative and more effective delivery formats than the classic linear, top-to-bottom, chronological, river-of-news sequence. At least for now. Here is what I see: Is there a problem? How about "navigating" a curated collection? Alternative Views The Opportunity

What Makes A Great Curator Great? | Content Curation, Social Media and Beyond This piece was brilliantly written by my fellow curator, Robin Good for those of you who haven't read this. Beth Kanter has added some very valuable insights so I am reposting this. I might also add that Beth Kanter is an example of what Robin refers to as a great curator. When you go to her blog, you will see that she consistently produces value for her readers by following what Robin suggests makes someone great. I agree with Beth that Giuseppe Mauriello is also a trusted source and provides value for his readers. Sorry my commentary is so long but this was so thought provoking, I just couldn't help myself:-) The headline draws you in and the material more than delivers on that promise. I'm not going to repost what Robin has said but add my own comments, just as if I were in a conversation with him. In Robin's own words - A great curator does the following: As you read this article, pay attention to how he has done all the above. These are my comments.......... Last but not least......

Evidenziare, annotare, citare, ... Ci sono due tipi di evidenziatori che possiamo usare su internet. Il primo tipo permette di mettere in evidenza, su un sito web, le parole che sono state utilizzate per trovare quella pagina su Google. In questo modo, a meno che la pagina web aperta non sia proprio specifica e risponda esattamente alla domanda, non bisogna mettersi a cercare ad occhio dove sta la parte che ci interessa, perchè basta usare lo strumento di evidenziatore per sottolineare le parole cercate o altri termini presenti dentro la pagina web. In questo modo è possibile individuare rapidamente la parte più rilevante della pagina e trovare le informazioni necessarie. Il secondo tipo, invece, è utile per sottolineare le parti importanti di una pagina in modo da conservarle in una specie di blocco appunti oppure per condividerle come delle citazioni mirate. 1) Scrible permette di creare una lista organizzata di articoli annotati o materiali di ricerca. 11) Wired Maker è un plugin per Firefox.
