Curation is indeed the most valuable tool to organize-and extract meaning from-the astonishing amount of new information being created daily. In this new world, each of us filters, analyzes, and shares meaningful data; we work for one another for free and all our minds get richer, faster. Curation is pattern-recognition put into practice."
Jason Silva, writer, filmmaker and founding host/producer for Al Gore's Current TV
“Steven Rosenbaum has given us a guide for how the digital world will evolve in the next decade. Curation is the only way to narrow the firehouse that keeps pouring onto my screens into an interesting, manageable, and useful flow of relevant information. The practical guide to becoming a curator should spark many of today's digital natives into effective careers that will help all of society. From Reader's Digest to the Huffington Post, Steven has shown how any why we need and crave curation. Read it.”
Howard Morgan, Partner IdeaLabs, Partner, First Round Capital
