NTEN Webinar Reflections and Resources: The Unanticipated Benefits of Content Curation Yesterday, I did a free NTEN Webinar called “The Unanticipated Benefits of Content Curation: Reducing Information Overload” based on my feature article in the NTEN Change Journal in June with the same title. (You can register and download the issue here for free and listen to the webinar recording here) The main idea is that good curation skills can build staff expertise and avoid the pain of information overload. I covered the basics of content curation, how it differs from social sharing, the art and practice of curation, a frameworks to get started, examples of nonprofits using curation, the tools, and some techniques for minimizing information overload and managing attention. I pulled together a curated summary of the tweets and resources on Storify that you can view here. With over 600 people registered for the Webinar, it was hard to answer all the questions as the chat stream just flew by and the 90 minutes was up before we knew it.

The Busy Person's Guide to Content Curation: A 3-Step Process 841 Flares Filament.io 841 Flares × Museums curate works of art. We digital marketers curate blog posts. Though our link shares may not be artistic contributions, the idea of curation is at least the same at museums and online: We’re all seeking only the best material to pass along to our patrons, customers, fans, or followers. Finding and sharing exquisite content has never had more value than it does today. People love being told what’s good to read or essential to see. visual recording on the iPad, illustrated – Ninmah Meets World This week I’ll be giving a talk at IFVP 2010 on visual recording with the iPad. While I was preparing my notes, I discovered how easy it is to make Quicktime movies of your notes with the Brushes app, so I made a little movie. Then I got carried away narrating it and adding in other images and … well, it’s almost 13 minutes long now, and if you watch it, you can skip my talk. Though I’m better in person, and there are a few things I didn’t put into the movie.
The Top 50 Mac Apps (What’s New To You?) If you own a Mac, you love it. That’s just how it works. While it’s awesome right out of the box, you can add a lot to your Mac experience with some fun, creative, productivity-enhancing and unique apps like those I’ve listed here.
