Curation Is Not About Ownership: It's About Change

Robin Good's insight:

"Curation is not about ownership. It’s not about proprietary rights to whatever environment or resource or experience you create. 

The job of a curator, Paolo Antonelli reminds me, is not to take and possess but to show and educate. 

The job of a curator is to make ideas accessible to as many people as possible.

Because creativity is about more than copyrights and patents. It’s about inspiring people to make something, be something, think something, do something – to change themselves so that we just might change the world."

by Jim Kast-Keat

Losing my assets {crypto} to online scammers is one of the worst feeling i ever had.I was a victim to crypto online scams who made away with my $120,000 worth crypto (USDT) after investing with them in their platform.. Before the intervention of {ASSETS LAB} a recovery agency who helped me recoup back all the funds that was stolen from me ..
Three months ago i ran into a crypto investment platform called {GX TRADE} and they promise to assist me in crypto investment and mining and profits, after several weeks of following them on their platform where they teach their subscribers about crypto mining and investment and offering assistance to help their subscribers to make profits for them by persuading us to invest on their platform {Gx trade }..
2 months ago i decided to invest with them , i did all the necessary requirements and agreement was reached..One week later , i went to to check on them on their platform and discovered that i cant reach them anymore on any of their platform which turns out to be a scam after so many enquirement and confirmations .. i was devastated and nearly lost my life on the process.
But thanks to my friend who introduced me to {ASSETS LAB LTD} a crypto recovery agency who helped me recover every penny stolen from me by the crypto scammers after a month of submitting my case to them . They followed my case diligently and made sure they recovered my funds and brought back life and joy to me and my family again ..
Contact {ASSETS LAB LTD } for any of your recovery including crypto recovery and any of your lost assets .. You can save a life today.

The Importance of Content Curation for Digital Citizenship and How To Use Pearltrees in Teaching Environments

Robin Good's insight:

Content curation can be of help to teachers and educators interested in guiding students in learning and appreciating the importance of active digital citizenship.

Jane Schmude, an Australian education graduate and a passionate teacher-librarian, outlines the reasons for such importance while providing also a good 5-minute visual introduction to Pearltrees as an ideal curation tool to carry out this type of project.

Useful intro for teachers, educators and librarians interested to learn more about the opportunities offered by curation.

Pragmatical. 7/10

A Curated Collection of Innovative Documentaries: The MIT Docubase

A Curated Collection of Innovative Documentaries: The MIT Docubase | Content Curation World |
The open documentary lab
Robin Good's insight:

Docubase is a project of the MIT Open Documentary Lab that aims to create a collaborative, participatory community around a growing collection of innovative documentaries curated by experts and outsiders alike.

Documentaries can be searched and sorted easily in a number of ways (most recent, most viewed, alphabetical order / or as a list rather than a mosaic). The interface is slick, colorful and simple to use.

More than 140 documentaries are already available and a selected group of curators has put together a number of publicly available playlists designed aroound key themes connecting these clips. 


The curators: 

A fantastic resource for documentary lovers and a great example of how in an open and participatory project, curation can play a fundamental role.

Free to use.

Curate Your Own Video Board: Chill Is The New Pinterest for Video

Robin Good: Chill, the video sharing and discovery site, has just introduced a new feature that allows anyone to clip and share, on a Pinterest-like thematic board, all of the video clips he finds on the web.

The new Chill bookmarklet works very much like the Pinterest one. When you click it, a page shows you all of the video clips found in that page and offers you to clip and "post" the one you want, with your comments. 

It's as easy as that.

The generated "curated" Chill video boards are easy to scan and browse, though, in my view, a great boon would be the ability to check a few of those videos and to click a play button that plays them full screen back to back. This way I have the best of curated content, my own selection, and the final lay-back and watch gratification option. 

Very promising.

Curation Coming To Television and Film: Channelisation

Curation Coming To Television and Film: Channelisation | Content Curation World |

"Jon Miller of News Corp may have predicted 2012 will see the "channelisation" of the web, but he really means a renewed focus on curation..."

"Channelisation implies that media corporations such as News Corp will be the ones controlling the playlist of content, but 2012 will see the role of such organisations fall back to providing content for others to turn into a wealth of different “channels” where the barrier to entry essentially falls to zero."

Key highlights curated from the article:

Curation of niche interest: channelisation

"...opening up of video on demand services from all these channels will allow much smaller organisations to provide cross-channel curation.

If the channels who provide the content are still showing their ads before, during and after each show, then curators could start channels focusing on more specific interests and smaller niches than a broadcast channel could do – there will be channels dedicated to crime shows, medical shows, shows with appearances from certain actors, and more.

A user will just have to think of a single genre or idea that they want to watch in a show, and there will be a “channel” or that."

The curator
"More interesting than the drive to smaller and smaller niches, which could, at least in part, be algorithmically generated – will be the focus on the curator.

If a user trusts the taste of a journalist, presenter, blogger or other figure – they may be more interested to watch the content that user picks than the content programmed for any particular channel.

...These curators could add to the content by providing commentary from their own knowledge of the content – offering a place where consumers could find a new love."

Social Curation
"...Equally, groups of curators could join together to offer more regular programming than the one-off playlists of individuals, basically creating “channels” without any of the budget and monetary constraints of a real channel.

They would not have to pay for licensing as the content owners will bundle ads with the in-stream content, and so people will curate out of love and interest rather than having to focus on budgetary constraints."

Insightful. 8/10

This is great news! I feel like it's Christmas all over again - think of all the possibilities, especiaily the Social Curation where groups of curators get together to offer regular programming. This is my favorite part "so people will curate out of love and interest rather than having to focus on budgetary constraints." My head is spinning, so many ideas flooding my brain, I need to curate my thoughts:-)

The Curator as a Film Editor [Video]

Robin Good's insight:

An inspiring visual homage to the film and video editor, a true curator in his own right. 

"We are storyteller, and first audience

our job is highly complex

and rarely understood

we sculpt




we decide when to re-order

when to add time

and when to take it away

when to tighten

and when to let breathe

we impose form



We enhance the performance of others

(...and correct their mistakes)

What we choose to take away

is as critical

as what we choose to keep

Through hundreds of creative, selective and structural decisions

and hours of raw material

We create




But the less you notice our work

The more successful we have been"

Inspiring. Truthful. 9/10

A Simple Process To Learn How To Curate Any Content You Read: The Cornell Notes

Robin Good's insight:

I recently stumbled onto this short video tutorial (1':57") which was created to explain to students how to take effective notes during a lesson or lecture.

Right upon my first play through it, I immediately felt that the steps suggested in it, could be also very useful for anyone just starting out with content curation and wanting to follow some kind of formal sequence to achieve good results.

The Cornell Notes video tutorial illustrates in fact in less than two minutes how to:
1) collect notes,

2) extract key concepts from them and

3) synthesize the essence of it in a presentable and readable format. 

If you are just starting out with content curation, this can be quite useful.

Useful. Simple. 8/10

Zhang Meilan's curator insight, April 13, 2014 8:24 PM




1.Record- 在主栏中,尽可能多地记录一些重要事实、思想、概念等。

2.Reduce,归纳- 在线索栏,将这些事实,思想和概念归纳概括为一个词汇、或一句短话。

3.Recite,背诵 - 利用线索栏的提示,尽可能全面、而非机械地,用你自己的语言复述你所记录的主栏中有关讲座内容的事实、思想,然后对照笔记确认你所讲的。

4.Reflect,反思 - 思考这些材料与课程、单元/被讨论的科目之间的关系,这部分内容卸载总结栏。

5.Review,总结 - 每周花10分钟快速回顾你的笔记,你将会记住你所学习的大部分内容。

Content Curation for Learning and Development: What People Think [Video]

Robin Good's insight:

Over a year ago, Ben Betts has curated a nice video clip trying to bring together different viewpoints and takes on what content curation is and how it can be used effectively for learning and development. 

The clip which is seven minutes long includes several written statements from individuals as well as a set of short front-face video explanations on the value of curation. 

The result is a unique video, which without fancy effects or glamourous introductions, which dives right into the topic by bringing together valuable viewpoints in a format that is effective for anyone wanting to slowly learn and discover what this curation frenzy is all about.

Good job. For those interested in education and development interested in learning more about curation. 7/10

Curate Your Own Video Channels and Mixtapes With DragOnTape

Curate Your Own Video Channels and Mixtapes With DragOnTape | Content Curation World |

Robin Good: DragOnTape is a great video curation tool designed for music fans who want to put together mixtapes to watch back on their mobiles, or that can be played at parties and events in a full-screen, back-to-back fashion.

DragOnTape which works both on the desktop and on your iPhone, allows you to easily search for any YouTube video / video mentioned on Twitter / Soundcloud clip and then to add it to your video-mixtape-collection.

You can drag and drop video clips on a timeline, move their order and position (albeit that's not always too easy), trim clips and make clips transition smoothly from one to the next with no breaks.

Obviously, just like I did in this test curated channel, you can bring any type of video content on any topic you like. These are 27 curated clips on content curation itself:!/4991003 

The playback interface is simply wonderful. Once you understand a few nuances it's impossible not to fall in love with it.

As I have said, the full compilation can be played back-to-back, while you have the option at all times to see the full playlist index and to jump to any clip you prefer. 


Once completed your video mixtape can be easily published to the DragOnTape portal, as well as embedded into any web site or blog or shared with a direct link.

P.S.: While this is a great video curation platform that can be used for any topic, the spontaneous community of curators on DragOnTape has developed a spectacular trove of curated music mixtapes with some truly golden gems in there. 

DragOnTape is free to use.

Excellent. 9/10

Content Curation World TV: My Curated Video Channel on Redux

Content Curation World TV: My Curated Video Channel on Redux | Content Curation World |

Robin Good: Redux has recently revamped its curation features especially in the direction of providing a unique platform to curate thematic video channels.

Anyone can easily sign-up, create a custom channel, and add URLs of video clips that they like to add to their video channel.

The TV-like interface REDUX has created is very cool and allows you to watch any channel in full screen mode with clips in your channel that play back-to-back.

You can test out and watch this full screen video channel I have curated exclusively with "curation-related" video content: 

Check out the channel content here: 

N.B.: There is not yet a browser bookmarklet that facilitates the clipping of new video content as you browse, the ability to delete a channel, or to scan other video clips to watch as you watch a channel, but these are likely upgrades coming soon.
