Robin Good's insight:



Sam Burroughs says it right: "What if we considered content curation from a user centered design perspective? What would audience centered curation look like?"


His suggestions are right on the mark:

  • Focus on a very specific interest and audience. 
     
  • Evaluate and share your opinion.
     
  • Let readers know how much time it takes to read the source you are suggesting to check.  
     
  • Explain, always clearly why something you are curating is relevant. Contextualize.
