  1. Thanks Om, glad you enjoyed the video.

    We wish those three could have been included as well. We tried to get Jason, but unfortunately he wasn’t available during the shoot. Scott would have been awesome and was an oversight on our part (for which I’ve apologized to Scott) and John Gruber would have been excellent, but none of us had a good introduction to him. Anyway, we’ll have to get them in for the next video.

  2. Thanks Om for curating this video.
    Regarding the definition of curation: Some people think that it’s only a matter of filtring. Having in mind an audience (or a specific audience) gives filtring and editorializing a meaning.
    Indeed, filtring the most valuable content for me (as a user) could be called: Bookmarking.
    If I’m filtring without added value or just content I love: it’s sharing (Twitter, FB, pinterest…).
    But if I’m sharing valuable content to a specific audience with a context or my personal view (sometimes against the original content) : its curation.
    If I’m doing it as a brand within my brand web presence (ie: Blog) : It becomes a part of my Content Marketing Strategy.

    And actually, this is what we are proposing in MediaHeroes.com (http://www.MediaHeroes.com).
    It’s a curation tool for brands that helps them to become Media using content curation.

    I can send you more info about MediaHeroes if you agree.

    Many thanks,
