Content Curation at Work: Startupery - A Library of Startup Best-Practices Curated by True Subject Matter Experts

Content Curation at Work: Startupery - A Library of Startup Best-Practices Curated by True Subject Matter Experts | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Startupery is a new online resource which organizes and curates best-practices, strategy advice, tips and methods for business startups.


The present library currently comprises over 500 hundred resources organized under 372 topics by 12 selected "experts", which include, among others, Fred Wilson (Vevnture Capitalist), Eric Ries (The Lean Startup), Chris Dixon (Investor) and Brad Feld (Early Stage Investor / Entrepreneur). 


For each expert you will find a page outlining his profile and presenting, in a categorized fashion, a selected number of sources suggested by him.


"For years, and now more than ever, startup founders, investors and operators have been sharing advice on how to succeed in business. From personal blogs to up-and-coming publications, this advice has been scattered and often hard to find when you need it mostStartup{ery is a library for this advice, giving each resource and the important topics that they cover a home on the internet."


An excellent and well-organized resource hub for startups, Simple, easy to navigate and staffed by a highly reputable set of subject-matter-experts / curators.

A great example of the value that content curation can bring to just about any field, where there is lot of precious information scattered around and which can greatly benefit from competent and trusted "organizers". 


Free to use.

How To Create Valuable Web Resources by Curating Other People's Content: Seven Real-World Examples

How To Create Valuable Web Resources by Curating Other People's Content: Seven Real-World Examples | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Content curation involves the added value only people can provide in the form of unique taste and understanding of the target audience to select and convert selected information into a quality content offering.
Robin Good's insight:


Heidi Cohen provides an excellent, illustrated and well referenced list of seven real-world examples of how one can create valuable resources by curating other people's content already available on the web.


As Heidi herself wisely suggest: "If your time is limited, use researchers to do the legwork involved in collecting and vetting articles and references." and then add extra value by adding your opinion, commentary, introduction or advice.


From "Round-up posts" to "Best of" lists she does a good job of summarizing, illustrating and providing good references for the key basic types of content curation approaches that have proven to produce valuable results.



Useful. Well illustrated. Resourceful. 8/10
