Curated Insights: Curation on Curation

Axonify

One of the big reasons curation has become such a buzzy term is the overwhelming volume of information available in today’s world. Information is often much less accessible than in real life, especially in an employee’s moment of need. The information exists, but it’s often difficult to find or it’s locked in people’s heads. As the author quotes, “Curation comes up when people realize that it isn’t just about information seeking, it’s also about synchronizing a community.”

The Learning Circuits

I'm making this a new post even though I started it as a comment on George's post about Informalization of everything. First, the "informalization of everything" is important. This will change over the next 18 months due to telecomm policy in India, and it will be interesting to see how information-seeking changes!)
