The Internet fire hose is ubiquitous and overwhelming, with the result that we're often overwhelmed with raw, unfiltered, context-free information. This is fuelling a demand for new content organisation and consumption methods in order to find meaningful and relevant information in these fast-moving data flows. Relevant and decision-ready information is becoming a valuable commodity in its own right, and many organisations are beginning to appreciate the roles and skills of people who understand the specific information needs of their users, customers and stakeholders and can provide it in a timely and effective manner. The answer to these information needs lies in the disciplines, competencies and skills of the content curator.
