We live in the age of information, meaning that our ability to succeed are increasingly connected to our ability to manage and efficiently leverage information.
Stephanie Hatch Leishman, a former MIT social media strategist, states that “curation is using your expertise in a field to gather great content around a specific theme and present that content in a way that will educate others.”
An information resource has value only when someone verifies, organises and curates it. Without context, it is disconnected from other relevant resources. It's like having an ingredient without a recipe.
Curation gives context to any information item to look at and appreciate. When the information resource is curated and contextualised, it gains value and usefulness.
Content curation is a natural solution to resource abundance.
Some people voluntarily curate content for the direct purpose of producing better and more satisfying results, saving time, appearing more authoritative or gaining more customers.
Information curators are personally interested in what they do, and curating is a reliable way to learn about their resources, uncover true gems, and organise them in a meaningful way.
Curation requires vetting, verification, resource-finding, providing a viewpoint and an ability to re-organise what is of value.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
