Content Curators Are The New Superheros Of The Web

Content Curators Are The New Superheros Of The Web
Yesterday, the ever-churning machine that is the Internet pumped out more unfiltered digital data. Yesterday, 250 million photos were uploaded to Facebook, 864,000 hours of video were uploaded to YouTube, and 294 BILLION emails were sent. And that's not counting all the check-ins, friend requests, Yelp reviews and Amazon posts, and pins on Pintrest. The volume of information being created is growing faster than your software is able to sort it out. As a result, you're often unable to determine the difference between a fake LinkedIn friend request, and a picture from your best friend in college of his new baby. Even with good metadata, it's still all "data"--whether raw unfiltered, or tagged and sourced, it's all treated like another input to your digital inbox. What's happened is the web has gotten better at making data. In 2010 we frolicked, Googled, waded, and drowned in 1.2 zettabytes of digital bits and bytes. Which means it's time to enlist the web's secret power--humans. 1.

CURATOR'S CODE Curator Curator responsibilities[edit] In smaller organizations, a curator may have sole responsibility for the acquisition and care of objects. The curator will make decisions regarding what objects to take, oversee their potential and documentations, conduct research based on the collection and history that provides proper packaging of art for transportation, and shares that research with the public and community through exhibitions and publications. In very small volunteer-based museums, such as local historical societies, a curator may be the only paid staff member. In larger institutions, the curator's primary function is as a subject specialist, with the expectation that he or she will conduct original research on objects and guide the organization in its collecting. Such institutions can have multiple curators, each assigned to a specific collecting area (e.g., Curator of Ancient Art, Curator of Prints and Drawings, etc.) and often operating under the direction of a head curator.

Ces numéros de téléphone griffonnés sur des tickets de caisse. Ces notes d'une importance capitale disséminées dans une brouettée de feuilles volantes.

How Long Customers Will Stay On Hold Cura i tuoi interessi Da alcuni mesi mi sto documentando su un argomento molto attuale in ambito digitale che mi incuriosisce e appassiona: la content curation. I vocaboli cura, curatore e contenuto in italiano fanno riferimento ad una precisa area semantica ma di recente sono stati adottati dall’inglese per identificare una figura professionale non dissimile dal curatore documentale. Giorgio Jannis colloca nel 2009 l’inizio di uno slittamento di significato: “Un anno e mezzo fa, a giudicare dalle ricerche su Google, il termine inglese curation ha subìto un primo slittamento semantico, arrivando a abbracciare nuovi significati per la comunità dei parlanti anglofona. Il curatore di contenuti è quindi colui che trova, seleziona, verifica, raggruppa e condivide online il migliore contenuto possibile in relazione ad un particolare argomento o tema. Se una ricerca viene effettuata con obiettivi importanti, il dispendio di energie e di risorse è alquanto elevato, e aggiungerei oneroso. Ama il tuo contenuto

Howard Rheingold | Exploring mind amplifiers since 1964 DLD 2012 – @Jack Dorsey: Twitter's business model works | Content Curation Tools SXSW blog, day three: Meet the curators A TWEET that recently got quite a bit of traction (over 100 retweets), including among the SXSW audience, was this one: @robinsloan The way to cover big news in 2011 is not "here's what happened."
