Curatorship: Individual Responsibility or Job of Expert?

Media_httpfarm4static_hdreb

Thank you Brian Eno for presenting the obvious before anyone else discovers it. I hope we all find curatorship skills and utilize them more effectively. Organizing information and being able to find it later is going to be key. Though I disagree with the statement that it is the next “big job”. I envision a world where anyone can curate content and do not need to rely on “experts”. This task is big but if everyone is a curator, then the task is possible and information remains free and vast. If we delegate curation of content to a select few experts, we will remove ourselves from knowledge and again be relying on others to control what we have access to.
