Steve Rosenbaum wrote in this article:   “Content in the cloud is a natural evolution from storing files on our desktops-but the content creation explosion that has overfilled our inboxes and overwhelmed our social networks won’t be solved by moving the growing mass of data from a private realm to a public one.   In fact, there’s a solution on the horizon that promises to keep the clouds fluffy and the content contextual. It’s the “curated cloud,” and it’s the next big thing.   In the past 3 years, the very nature of the web has changed. It changed from stored quality content to real-time, mobile, personal content.
