Via Scoop.it – Content Curation, Social Media and Beyond
Simon Careless, editor, publisher has written this article about the massive overload of content we’re all experiencing, with interesting observations and then some.
He has a lot to say on this subject and will be writing more in the near future. What really caught my attention was a comment from one of his readers, Sarah Brin: Curation isn’t strictly about taste-making either–a huge part of it is becoming an interlocutor, someone who facilitates a discussion around content, as opposed to presenting content with a qualitative (and subjective) evaluation.
In that regard, the democratization of curatorial tools (tumblr, twitter, all the ways we share content) is really exciting! It might usher in a new era wherein culture becomes more participatory…or it might not. What are your thoughts about this? http://www.simoncarless.com/?p=256
I have applied a keen eye for blending cultural trends, the right people and emergent industries to create dynamic new businesses in cable TV, internet and currently mobile media and marketing services for local and national companies.
I was an associate publisher for three startup magazines in New York. I helped brand and position these magazines in the marketplace through promotions at trade shows, advertising and special events
