What about curating intranet content, not managing it?


Robin’s post has grabbed a lot of people’s attention over the last 24 hours, and its not surprising. When Paolo from eVectors demo’d their technology to me I was really impressed too – in fact, the front end of the Climate Pulse example gives only a few clues about the engine that enables the curating process that Robin describes to happen.

However, my immediate thought when I saw Climate Pulse was, wouldn’t this also make a good concept for an intranet?

Could it in fact be possible to shift from the idea of managing content on intranets and instead think about curating it instead? Its an interesting idea that could make intranets more relevant – just like dashboards for metrics have become popular, can we also imagine dashboards for content and activity that are curated by people, not dumb algorithms?
