Pay to access Content Curation?

[ view original ]

All debates about using the terms “curation” and “curator” aside, figuring out ways of “finding, grouping, organizing or sharing the best and most relevant content on a specific issue”* is something that all associations should be doing. Why? Because we’re already doing most of it, and it’s a big (maybe even gigantic) reason our members pay dues to belong to our selective group. They might not say it in so many words, but when they come to your organization — its educational sessions, conference, networking site, publications, benchmarking reports, research studies, etc. etc. — for help in developing their professional acumen, they’re actually relying on your ability to “find, group, organize, and share the best and most relevant content on a specific issue” so they can readily access it.

    Indeed. There's business models here!

    One of the points she makes as she references Rohit Bhargava's manifesto is the aspect of Chronology in curation (I tend to call it Preservation). It should not be overlooked that seeing a topic's evolution can bring greater understanding.
