In the age of real-time content, we are overwhelmed by the quantity and pace of new information presented to us. The stream is now a ubiquitous flood with events, topics, and conversations flying by faster than we can consume them. As a result, the levels of noise in our communications are reaching greater proportions. We spend too much time trying to find great content, and often miss out on important information and media. What is the most effective way to preserve and curate in an age of endless, real-time content? How can we provide relevancy and context for the most important stories? Its an old-fashioned smackdown between human and semantic-powered curation. Listen from four startups in the space as they debate the benefits and merits of manual and automated curation and give you a glimse of the future of the curated real-time web.
