I was pleased to be able to share the stage at the BBC's historic Radio Theatre with Sarah Montague, the reknowned presenter from the Today programme, and Anna Tavares, the Executive Product Manager of Online Curation with BBC Future Media.

Sarah Montague noted that Anna had focussed on curating BBC content, and asked if the BBC should be curating content from outside.

Keith Fisher of LShift asked what the BBC sees as the balance between curation by algorithms and curation by humans.
