Once upon a time I was a reporter, then an editor. Now I’m a curator, part of a growing industry that tries to help people find their way through the flood of news and information.
Today, I got my 15 minutes of fame, when Steve Rosenbaum, author of Curation Nation, bestowed his “Curation King” award on me for the work I do at Eqentia, curating services such as the Future of News among many others. Thanks Steve!
Apparently wearing the crown to work is optional.
Interestingly, the sort of work we do at Eqentia – aggregating, filtering and disseminating news – is very similar to what Steve does with video through his new company magnify.net. In my spare time, I use magnify.net to manage a video page for the Ontario Science Centre Amateur Radio Club.
