A lot has been written recently about the importance of “curation” in this age of information “overload.” In March, I wrote a post titled The Difference Between “Curating,” “Aggregating” & “Creating” which shares my perspective on the topic.
I thought readers might be interested in what other people have to say on the topic.
Here are my choices for The Best Posts & Articles About Curation:
