BBC Online Briefing: Curation Q&A
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.
From the Q&A that followed, it's clear that the BBC - while embracing curation - may not yet see the future as being in the hands of people formerly known as "the audience". Can you curate for a passive consumer, or is curation a team sport?
Not sure if we answered the question - but we tried.

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.
