Image curation with Evernote.com…sounds serious, doesn’t it? Well, it’s not. For fun, you may want to read something more serious on curating digital content from the famous Joyce Valenza:
The stuff I personally need most–the stuff I am passionate about–is published in the most diverse sources, across all sorts of platforms and formats. Much of it is dynamic, and feedy. Much of it is a moving target.
I’ve been playing a bit with the notion of curating–for myself and my personal practice, for the librarians in our District, for my practicum students, and perhaps for a broader audience, for synchronizing our community So here is a beta version of my curation effort–Guide for Teacher Librarians.
That seriousness aside, does the idea of curating also apply to images you stumble across everywhere?
I hope that clipping images with Evernote will help keep track of the origin site–at least, where I ran across an image–and alleviate copyright concerns. Still, since I’m still learning, I’m not sure how well EverNote will serve in this way.
Part of the reason that human curation is so critical is simply the vast number of people who are now making and sharing media. Everyone is a media outlet. The point of everyone being a media outlet is really not at all complicated. It just means that we can all put things out in the public view now.
