Introducing The Curator's Code: A Standard for Honoring Attribution of Discovery Across the Web

Introducing The Curator's Code: A Standard for Honoring Attribution of Discovery Across the Web
by Maria Popova UPDATE: Some thoughts on some of the responses, by way of Einstein. UPDATE 2: This segment from NPR’s On the Media articulates the project well — give it a listen. Ours is a culture and a time immensely rich in trash as it is in treasures.” ~ Ray Bradbury You are a mashup of what you let into your life.” ~ Austin Kleon Chance favors the connected mind.” ~ Steven Johnson As both a consumer and curator of information, I spend a great deal of time thinking about the architecture of knowledge. Until today. I’m thrilled to introduce The Curator’s Code — a movement to honor and standardize attribution of discovery across the web. One of the most magical things about the Internet is that it’s a whimsical rabbit hole of discovery — we start somewhere familiar and click our way to a wonderland of curiosity and fascination we never knew existed. In both cases, just like the words “via” and “HT,” the respective unicode character would be followed by the actual hotlink to your source.

Messages On Hold Presentaions and Music On Hold Information Channel Services the curators code The word “curation” in common usage has lost some its meaning. We think of it more in terms of collector, aggregator or disseminator and not as “caretaker” as is its true definition. We future and current archivists and librarians, are all curators of information. We are shepherds and superintendents of data and particularly in the online space, we should be setting the example for proper care. Anyone who tweets, facebooks, blogs, links, writes, or shares in the online space is similarly a curator of information. The new information economy is not based on amassing huge amounts of data but curating and providing context to important, true, interesting, and/or relevant information. I have been ruminating on this idea of late after reading the Curator’s Code by Maria Popova. The idea is that just as you attribute an idea you espouse to a person, book or quote, you should also reference from whom – from what curator – you found your item of information (picture, link, article, post etc).

Create Professional Technical Documentation with Dozuki I’m sure we’ve all heard of a site called iFixit, the site which provides easy repair guides for a wide range of products, including Apple devices, games consoles, digital cameras and so on but I’d hazard a guess at the fact that not as many people have heard of Dozuki, which is the fantastic system that actually powers the website and makes creating and running a “how-to” guide on the Internet a piece of cake. Read on after the break for my full review! In A Nutshell Dozuki is essentially an easy to create how-to guides on the internet. The splash screen for Dozuki. Dozuki is very much aimed towards the business user and its pricing reflects this. All of Dozuki’s paid plans support domain aliasing and your guide is hosted on their own servers so there’s absolutely no additional software to mess around with or install. Working With Guides Dozuki breaks down web-based tutorials into easy-to-read steps. Adding photos to a Dozuki how-to guide. Made in a mistake in a particular step?

Aggregation and curation: two concepts that explain a lot about digital change Aggregation and curation: two concepts that explain a lot about digital change Every time I read a story about why newspapers are failing that doesn’t mention the role of aggregation and curation in their troubles, it reminds me that something very fundamental is being missed, even by very sophisticated observers. Aggregation is one of the core concepts of content presentation and commercialization. Curation is a term that has always referred to the careful selection and pruning of aggregates, such as for a museum or an art exhibition. NOcontent makes its way from its creator to the public without aggregation. Publishers are aggregators, pulling together lists of books to present a (publisher-) branded offering to bookstores, libraries, and various review media. Bookstores are aggregators, and their curation is reflected in front tables and shop windows and store sections that create a (retailer-) branded offering that consumers can navigate. What are the takeaways from this? 1. 2. 3. 4.

"I've spent a good deal of time searching for a word other than "Curation" in part because of the connection to museums (which I feared sounded elitist and historic). 1) A Brief History of News Curation Tools The first news curation tools that I am aware of came out in late 2004 - early 2005, reflecting from the very beginning a growing need for both small publishers as well as for medium and large content publishers to be able to aggregate, filter and manually re-order and select the specific content items to be published in a news channel. MySyndicaat, whose parent company, Kipcast has now grown into a multi-faceted service providing advanced news aggregation and republishing widgets for online brands and media companies, has been the true pioneer of this space. With both tools the hard part is knowing "how to do" things. b. filter and

Create Your Own Smartphone App With Infinite Monkeys – No Coding Knowledge Required It would be great if we all had the time, skills, and patience to learn computer coding, especially since technology pervades so many areas of our life. But thankfully, there are applications and web developers out there who provide ways for the rest of us to produce apps with little or no coding skills. Back in June, I reviewed one such web application called Buzztouch, which is designed to allow anyone to create their own smartphone application. Now a similar program has just been released called Infinite Monkeys, a web-based tool geared toward niche communities who want to share content on the iPhone and Android platforms. Infinite Monkeys is not as polished theme wise as Buzztouch, but unlike the latter, Infinite Monkeys, says the developers, “Is completely web-based, and works on any computer or tablet device. You never touch the source code and don’t have to know what it is or how it works.” Web-based GUI Building An App Core Content Publishing App
