What does a curator do? Curation means filtering and selecting the best pieces of content on the web – and doing it systematically and coherently. Curators not only discover useful information on the Internet but – and that is at least equally important – organize, present and share it. Although curators don’t have to create original content, their selection of related content can be a value in itself. As Josh Sternberg wrote in a Mashable article called “Why Curation Is Important to the Future of Journalism”, the torrent of content emanating from innumerable sources (blogs, mainstream media, social networks) has created a vacuum between reporter and reader — or information gatherer and information seeker. This makes it necessary to have a trusted human editor to help sort out all this information.
