“Managing attention & information”
Created and curated by Howard Rheingold
Human-driven information curation is the antidote to this algorithmic disconnect between access and accessibility:
The primary purpose of an editor [is] to extend the horizon of what people are interested in and what people know. Giving people what they think they want is easy, but it’s also not very satisfying: the same stuff, over and over again. Great editors are like great matchmakers: they introduce people to whole new ways of thinking, and they fall in love.
