When I think about content curation, the word “curling” has a special meaning to me, but I’ll come back to that in a bit.

These days, curation — especially in the digital realm — is becoming one of those “it” terms to throw around if you want to be on-point talking about solutions to deal with content abundance.

But does anyone know what it really means?   Recently, I’ve heard a few fantastic metaphors that attempt to explain the concept of curation to those still unsure, such as:   “Curation is the new search.”   Or, if you’re looking to be more dramatic, curators are those who engage in “CSI-style forensic analysis in real time.”
