Content Curation Grows Up
Now that the initial hype around content curation has died down, let’s get real. Erin Kissane will lead a conversation about practice and theory with a group of people involved in different aspects of the work. They’ll discuss:

- the value for readers, content creators, and the curators themselves (and the organizations they represent)

- common myths about curation (it’s easy, it’s piratical, etc.)
- the specific challenges of creating tools and systems for filtering and curation
