Human Curators,  (not Bots) !

Are humans being replaced or pushed out by Bots and Spiders?

With so much information out there, on the web, we have to come to grips with the staggering effects of Information Overload.  (See my other post on this topic- which is even more relevant today, than when I first wrote about it, last year!) 🙂

Steve Rosenbaum examines these three wonderful  apps for curators:

  1. Paper.li (related articles found through Twitter). See my Paper.li curated news here: http://paper.li/Coolwired/1307374952
  2. Storify (Write your own words.)
  3. Pinterested (visual pics) Request an Invitation.

Take a few minutes to explore these apps. You will find them quite interesting!

I think human curators are more important than ever! Enter  Librarians(those Information Specialists who can classify and find what you need to know)!!


[P.S. bagtheweb is another curating site I really like.

You can see my Bagging For Education  curated posts featured here:
