Is curation king?

3 03 2011

Information overload has increased the need for curation ― both in the form of tools and a new way of thinking, explained Steven Rosenbaum, CEO of Magnify.net and author of the book Curation Nation.  

Technology alone will not solve the problem; it’s a misunderstanding to think that content producers will be replaced by robots, he said. “People are stuck on this idea that curation replaces creation,” said Rosenbaum, speaking at a Social Media Week event Thursday in New York. He believes that humans will still add value beyond what algorithms can provide, serving as topical experts collecting information on a subject.
