Curah! is a new site focusing on curating the best tech answers available online.
Targeted mainly at developers, the new Microsoft information portal has been designed to provide curated answers on topics ranging from high-level technology descriptions to deep technical articles covering specific problems that developers commonly face.
By exploring the home page you can already find a set of gret examples of curated answers in which a Microsoft trusted expert has collected a set of artcìicles and online resources highly relevant to a specific topic.
"We’ve developed Curah! as a way to help customers discover great technical content. Curah! has a very specific purpose: to help people searching in Bing or Google find annotated collections of great content that specifically target common user questions."
My comment: A great example of the value that content curation can provide to customers, developers as well as to the public at large. The choice of starting the site with great examples to follow-up on is also the best possible approach to guide and train future contributors on what is expected of them. A great model for the many specialized curated answer sites that will spring up in coming years.
