Karen Dietz talks about developing an editorial voice when curating. Ask: 1.Why do I like this article? Why am I selecting it? 2.What is in the article that is valuable for others to know? 3.Does this piece fit into my topic? What do I want to say about what I like?
Not the usual thing we post... but curation happens everywhere. Look at the apartment in this story. There's more stuff than you could imagine fitting in one apartment but, somehow, it works. This is the difference between just gathering and actually curating.
