We are no longer just consumers of content, we have become curators of it too.

by Scott Hoffman on January 26, 2010

I just read a great piece by NY Times writer Nick Bilton, “Controlled Serendipity’ Liberates the Web” in it he writes:

“We are no longer just consumers of content, we have become curators of it too.

If someone approached me even five years ago and explained that one day in the near future I would be filtering, collecting and sharing content for thousands of perfect strangers to read — and doing it for free — I would have responded with a pretty perplexed look. Yet today I can’t imagine living in a world where I don’t filter, collect and share.”

I couldn’t have said it better.

Hat Tip to my friend David Mandelbrot formerly of Yahoo and David Pell who just started a great blog called Tweetage Wasteland. Both of these guys curated Nick’s content for me…
