Curation : the power of selection in a world of excess

Michael Bhaskar (Author)
Curation, or the art of selecting useful information to form meaningful collections, is the new buzzword that tech companies and media professionals have eagerly latched on to. But curation is a far more powerful and deeply relevant idea than we give it credit for. It answers the question of how we live in a world where problems are often about having too much, and shows how we keep growing in a world of excess. Acts of selecting, refining and arranging to add value help us overcome information overload. This book highlights the numerous places in which this simple but forceful skill is increasingly felt: in art and on the Web, but also in retail and manufacturing, high finance and government policy
