Semantics Is So Tomorrow So, we all know Web 2.0 is totally yesterday and Semantic technology is the wave of the future. But what’s happening right now? How are Semantics changing the landscape of content analytics? According to “Semantics + Intelligence Helps Put Information into Action-Smart Content,” the technology is not yet very compelling for consumers but is very beneficial for businesses. But can semantics really help corporate decision-makers make better decisions? “Semantic search engines not only help companies save time and money, they help them become more efficient, productive and more engaged with their information … Intelligence takes information and puts it into action, while providing insight so that leadership can make more informed decisions.” Sounds like a great sales pitch, but marketers and other decision-makers need to know, specifically, what “Semantics + Intelligence” can do for them.

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?
Some thoughts on curation – adding context and telling stories « Derivadow.com Just over two years ago I wrote a post about the importance of the resource and the URL — and I still stand by what I said there: the core of a website should be the resource and its URL. And if those resources describe real world things and they are linked together in the way people think about the world then you can navigate the site by hopping from resource to resource in an intuitive fashion. But I think I missed something important in that post — the role of curation, the role of storytelling. When we started work on Wildlife Finder we designed the site around the core concepts that we knew people cared about and those that we had content about i.e. species, their habitats and adaptations, and we’ve been publishing resources about those concepts since last September. Collections allow us to curate a set of resources – to group and sequence clips and other resources to tell stories like the plight of the tiger or the years work of the BBC’s natural history unit. Like this:
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 ?
The Art of Curation: An Interview with Maria Popova from BrainPickings | NeboBlog: Interactive Marketing, Design & Ramblings. Brought to you by NeboWeb As more and more people and brands take to producing digital content, a group of individuals has arisen with the goal of filtering the wheat from the chaff. I had the pleasure of interviewing the curator of the popular site Brain Pickings, Maria Popova, and picking her brain on this topic. The role of people like Maria will only become more important in the future, and her insights are well-worth consideration. Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do. I founded and now edit Brain Pickings, a destination for indiscriminate curiosity. Define success for Brain Pickings. Success is getting a note from an artist saying he just started painting again after a fourteen-year hiatus because he found himself so stimulated by things on Brain Pickings he would’ve never ordinarily considered. Part of the appeal of an art gallery or museum, where our traditional notions of curation come from, is that they have pieces of work that no one else does. Tina Roth Eisenberg, a.k.a. Thanks Maria.
Content Curation Guide for SEO - What, How, Why The author's posts are entirely his or her own (excluding the unlikely event of hypnosis) and may not always reflect the views of Moz. When it comes to the Internet, I imagine it as the warehouse where the Ark is archived at the end of Indiana Jones – Raiders of the Lost Ark. The Ark is that outstanding content someone has produced and that no other will be able to see again, because it is forgotten and hidden between gazillions of other contents. Apart from the gigantic volume of pages present in the Internet, for a long time, search spam has been making the discovery of reliable sources difficult; and – let's be honest – Social Media has enhanced this issue, because it added even more noise and dispersion. Actually, as Mitchel Kapor said once, getting information off the Internet is like having a drink from a fire hydrant. To tell the truth, this problem is not new. What is Content Curation? This is especially needed in the Internet era. How to do Content Curation: The Tools Zite Flipboard
The Content Strategist as Digital Curator The term “curate” is the interactive world’s new buzzword. During content creation and governance discussions, client pitches and creative brainstorms, I’ve watched this word gain traction at almost warp speed. As a transplant from museums and libraries into interactive media, I can’t help but ask what is it about this word that deserves redefinition for the web? Article Continues Below Curation has a distinguished history in cultural institutions. For a long time, we’ve considered digital objects such as articles, slideshows, and video to be short-lived. Consider some examples: NYTimes.com Topics employs content managers who sift through The Times’ archive to create new meaning by grouping articles and resources that were filed away (or distributed to library databases). More commercially, NBC Universal’s video site Hulu takes videos sourced from multiple networks and then rearranges them into collections that give a new perspective to the collection as a whole. What’s the payoff?
Definizione di Content Curation Curation has always been an underrated form of creation. The Getty Center in Los Angeles is one of the most frequently visited museums in America – and started as a private art collection from one man (J. Paul Getty) who had a passion for art. Aside from a few well known examples like this one, however, the term curation has rarely been used outside of the world of art … until now. One of the hottest trends in social media right now is content curation – thanks in no small part to the leading efforts of several thought leaders actively promoting the idea. Joe Pulizzi is a “content marketing evangelist” who speaks and writes often about content marketing publishes a list of the best content marketing blogs across the web. What Is Content Curation? Back in 2009 I published a blog post called the “Manifesto For The Content Curator” which predicted that this role would be one of the fastest growing and most important jobs of the future.

Networked Blogs - NetworkedBlogs.com Altre web application 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. Here’s a look at over 30 content curation tools (mostly free, but some paid/professional tools as well) that will help you cut through the clutter of your information stream to find the gems.

Content Curation Tools: How To Pick The Right One? | Real-Time News Curation | Scoop.it I’m seeing more Scoopit links in my Twitter stream and I’m not crazy about it. Sure it’s quick and easy to share with Scoopit. But it not quick and easy to consume. For me it's all about the econ... Marty Note (here is comment I wrote on Dr. Appreciate Bryan’s and Joseph’s comment, but I rarely use Scoop.it as a pass through. Rich snippets are “blog” posts that fall between Twitter and the 500 to 1,000 words I would write in Scenttrail Marketing. I was taught NOT to pass through links on Scoop.it early on by the great curator @Robin Good . Bryan is correct that some curators new to Scoop.it haven’t learned the Robin Good lesson yet. For my part I always identify my Scoop.it links, probably about half the content I Tweet and about a quarter of my G+ shares. When you follow or consistently share content from a great curator on Scooop.it you begin to understand HOW they shape the subjects they curate. So, sorry you are sad to see Scoop.it links and understand your frustration. Marty
