Would those who post here be considered "curated content" providers? Even though the words sound like the epitome of corporate speak (hot phrases such as "new paradigm," "paradigm shift," "owning the brand," come to mind), I've tried to objectively understand Dickey's comments regarding the phrase. It seems he means, in plain radio programming and production speak, "producers." "Create $omething of value to the listener and
the radio $tation." If we can create content; that is, write it, produce it and voice it, and make it available for over the air and on-line use, it's "curated content." If it can be re-cycled, re-applied and updated, all the better.
All this said, it seems to me that some of the best "curated content" appears on YouTube, whose slogan is "Broadcast Yourself." Like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwHy4gMO6sU
45,900+ views, paltry by YouTube standards, but hell, I watched, and I'm not even what might be called "a cat person."
