From the article:
My point is that Curating The Cloud isn’t a mechanical job. It’s not going to be solved with artificial intelligence or shipping containers full of processors. It is deeply editorial, and in a world of unlimited choice, curators are fast going to be the most important filters in your life. They will be the windows through which we see the world, and the point of view that makes content valuable rather than overwhelming.
Simply put, curators know who we are.
And the Content Cloud – already vast and hard to navigate – is now poised to quickly surpass even the most generous projections of size and scope. Video will be both the web’s ‘killer app’ and, for those of us who really try to drink from the firehose without benefit of some filters and focus, overwhelming and unmanageable.
