interesting to see curation in this context, another blogger has recently published a book on curation in the context of christian worship triggered by reading a book on curation in the art world, worth a look http://jonnybaker.blogs.com/jonnybaker/2010/07/curating-worship-new-book.html

@Deirdre - glad you're on it.

@Eddy - blending is a good way to build sustainability and community into your plans.

@Mohan - curating *is* creating a new expression of the content by commenting, ordering, etc. Museum curators develop new stories from what they edit in and out of the art they choose to display, for example. Plus, it allows you to contextualize disperse information. Much of what passes for "original" content is often built on other people's ideas and not credited properly, esp. in social media.

@Kerry - not for many. I have been curating content and conversations for years. The same can be said for librarians, teachers, mentors, even parents. You don't need to do anything you don't want to do, either. Curating also means engaging critical skills, and having the humility to admit that you don't know it all.

I think it's interesting to note that curation is the new flavor of the month. Now that we have all this data, we need to figure out how it's useful to us. The sort and find is where we are at.
