| 0 comments

There’s more and more discussion on the web about the role of “curators” (which is sort of what I do with my “The Best…” lists).

In fact, awhile I ago I posted The Best Posts & Articles About Curation.

Now, though, I think it’s getting a little overblown, and it seems to me that a fair number of people have way too much time on their hands.

Case in point, here’s a lengthy post titled Bloggers and Bowerbirds. In it, the writer sort of compares curators to Australian Bowerbirds. I wasn’t that clear on the point of the post, but I loved the video clip, and this post gives me an excuse to share it:

One big difference, though, is that I’m not creating “The Best…” lists in order to attract a mate (my wife and I are quite happy, thank you)…..
