You say potato, I say curation.
Jason Wilson's "Exactly what do you mean by 'curating'?" on his blog rethinc.k. It may be the latest buzzword in Web 2.0, the latest example of 'value' in the Twitter and Facebook era, but what does it really mean? Yes, we have entered what Adrian Lurssen calls the "Age of Curation," but that doesn't mean we shouldn't take a critical look at curation as a service, at how to do it right, at who should be doing it, and at what exactly what the people we're doing it for need. Reading Wilson's post is the right first step in that process.
