CURATING THE FUTURE | Nation Performing Arts Convention Like e-mail in the ‘90s and the web at the dawn of the new millennium, artists and organizations—as a matter of business—have had to adapt to these new modes of communication and integrate these tools into their operations. Web 2.0 and social platforms like Digg and Delicious, YouTube, Flickr, and Facebook have pushed the electronic envelope even further up the learning curve. Along comes Twitter, and the real-time revolution is on—just as mobile technologies have gone viral. The speed of new development presents challenges—for technologists and luddites alike. But whether you’re a traditionalist or a ‘new mediaist,’ [1] future audiences are growing up with these technologies, [2] and eventually, the arts, like every living thing, must adapt or die. Social media is where the jobs will be. New jobs mean new roles and new responsibilities. “Managing communities is much more complex than traditional outreach,” Levy added. You can Retweet, favorite, or copy urls, but it’s not the same.

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. In Scotland, the term "curator" is also used to mean the guardian of a child. More recently, advances in new technologies have led to a further widening of the role of curator.

Searcheeze e la content curation: l’intervista a Stefano Passatordi Iniziamo così: Italians do it better. L’avevo già detto nel mio post su Pinterest: l’ormai celebre piattaforma – in verità assimilabile più ad un sito di repository fotografica – non è l’unica soluzione in ambito content curation. Searcheeze ne è l’esempio, ed è anche made in Italy. La startup, che ha sedi in Italia e negli USA e che è in rapida crescita dopo aver già chiuso due round di investimento con venture capital (e dopo oltre due anni di esperienza e feedback accumulati con il progetto Ibrii), è guidata da Stefano Passatordi, ventottenne noto sul Web anche per il blog You Startup: Project, Development e Deploy. Noi di Young Digital Lab abbiamo fatto alcune domande a Stefano per voi (ma vi consigliamo di vedere anche l’intervista realizzata da Intervistato.com in collaborazione con Indigeni Digitali). – Ciao Stefano! Ciao ragazzi! – Cosa distingue Searcheeze da piattaforme come Pinterest, Scoop.it, Zite, Google Currents e Flipboard? – Cosa avete imparato dall’esperienza di Ibrii?

PDG de Pearltrees et auteur du blog Cratyle, Patrice Lamothe expose dans ce billet les différentes phase de développement du Web. Parti d’un micro-démocratie où “chacun disposait de tous les attributs d’un média”, le réseau semble actuellement en mesure de franchir une frontière : celle qui vise à permettre à chacun d’être un média complet. Chacun sent que le Web entre aujourd’hui dans une nouvelle phase de son développement. Les tentatives de synthèse fleurissent, mais ne semblent pas suffire à rendre compte des évolutions en cours. Peut-être trouvera-t-on d’ailleurs inutile de vouloir décrire les évolutions d’ensemble du Web? La troisième frontière

Définition et histoire de la curation, ou la transmission de la connaissance La curation est l’aggrégation de textes, de sujets, de curiosités et de les mettre en avant. Dans les bibliothèques, encyclopédies, les musées, les journaux, et maintenant, sur le web ! Ce concept, repris récemment dans le monde numérique et de l’internet, fait référence au conservateur de musée, qui met en avant certaines pièces maitresses, dans une exposition. Sur le net, on met en avant certains articles. Voilà la curation. Nous verrons ici que l’aggrégation, le classsement de sources d’information, autour d’un sujet ont traversé nos modes de réflexion. Le dictionnaire et l’encyclopédie. La diffusion de l’imprimerie, par Gutenberg, au XVeme siècle a permis de multiplier en abondance les écrits. D’un aspect médiologique, la recherche et la proposition d’information réside dans la dichotomie, du dictionnaire. La bibliothécaire. L’encyclopédie du siècle des lumières avait l’ambition de donner la connaissance au plus grand nombre. Comment susciter le désir de lire, de trouver son livre ?

Content Curation & Fair Use: 5 Rules to being an Ethical Content Curator * Update: I have a much lengthier updated post that incorporates the material below: Content Curation: Copyright, Ethics, & Fair Use Recently, Kimberley Isbell of the Nieman Journalism Lab cited a Harvard Law report and published an extensive post on news aggregation and legal considerations. From a curation perspective, the whole article is interesting, but what was the most surprising was that her recommendations for being an ethical content aggregator, were the same as being an effective content curator. The five recommendations are below. 1. Marketing reason: The more you link to third parties, the more likely they are to link back to you – which ultimately improves your SEO. 2. Marketing reason: A good content curator is selective an only links to the most relevant content on a specific topic or issue. 3. Marketing reason: Demonstrating that you have curated content from a wide variety of sources, and content from some very reputable sources, makes you more credible as well. 4. 5.
