The real-time curation wars (exclusive first look at Curated.by)
Back in March I wrote a post about the seven needs of real-time curators. Over the next week or so no less than three companies are shipping services that will fulfill that dream with tools that comply with all seven needs. What are they? 1. Curated.by. (My Techcrunch Disrupt tweets on Curated.by is here). 2. First, I recorded an audio post about what is real time curation and what problem does it solve? Second, I recorded a video last week with Curated.by’s founder, Bastian Lehmann. Based on my first playing with these tools it is clear that Curated.by and Storify are in the lead. Also, most, if not all, of these are embed-able in blog posts, so they are designed for the modern web and they seem to understand how to distribute themselves back into Twitter and Facebook.

"Curation" is a buzzword (even if it isn't technically a word…unless you count the 14th century French definition meaning "to cure") that's smokin' up the interwebs these days.

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.

30+ Cool Content Curation Tools for Personal & Professional Use 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. Curation Tools - The Hindu : Business News : Content curation tools: a means for information collation A new class of products called content curation tools has appeared in the highly volatile search service segment. This edition of NetSpeak discusses yet another trend blooming in the cyberspace. Current information retrieval tools can be broadly categorised in terms of tools based on computer search algorithms and the ones linked to human expertise. As you are aware, search engines (Google et al) belong to the former category. Here the search index/database is populated by computer programs (crawlers) and in response to your keywords, based on a search algorithm, the search service displays a set of web pages, supposed to contain most relevant/authentic content. This model can easily accommodate any kind of content explosion.

Real-Time News Curation - The Complete Guide Part 2: Aggregation Is Not Curation We are no longer just consumers of content, we have become curators of it too. In Part 1 of this Guide I have introduced why we really need real-time news curation and what is the basic idea behind it (Part 1 - Real-Time News Curation, Newsmastering And Newsradars - The Complete Guide Part 1: Why We Need It).

A Brief History of News Curation Tools 2. The 15 Basic Traits of a News / Content Curation System Content Strategy: Exploring Content Curation Tools Content curation has been getting a lot of attention recently. We’ve covered what it is, why it’s valuable and offered best practices on how to curate content on your own. Yet, if management systems can be designed to manage content, why not build one to curate content?

Content Strategy: How and Why to Curate Content Most of us understand the value of sharing information. But when the information belongs to others, we wonder “what’s the point?” Yet, as massive amounts of information abound, the art of content curation can help us provide resources to our audiences while positing ourselves as an authority. Here’s how. Real Time Twitter Curation ‘Curation’ is a topic of many a conversation these days – from media properties to bloggers to even brands looking to add value to the story they tell and service they provide to their audience. However, the question of how to best record and track a real-time conversation stream related to a particular topic is still tricky – particularly in a continually-updated Twitter stream. Proposing to help resolve the need for real-time curation is Curated.by, a soon-to-launch Twitter curation tool that facilitates cataloging and sharing collections of messages on any topic. How it works: create a collection (say, ‘networked objects’) and drag related Tweets into it, or use the service’s new Chrome Extension to curate Tweets right from Twitter web pages.

Real-Time News Curation, Newsmastering And Newsradars - The Complete Guide Part 1: Why We Need It The time it takes to follow and go through multiple web sites and blogs takes tangible time, and since most sources publish or give coverage to more than one topic, one gets to browse and scan through lots of useless content just for the sake of finding what is relevant to his specific interest.

The Seven Needs of Real-Time Curators I keep hearing people throw around the word “curation” at various conferences, most recently at SXSW. The thing is most of the time when I dig into what they are saying they usually have no clue about what curation really is or how it could be applied to the real-time world. So, over the past few months I’ve been talking to tons of entrepreneurs about the tools that curators actually need and I’ve identified seven things. First, who does curation?
