Think back to 1998, when the Guggenheim Museum stirred up controversy with its Art of the Motorcycle exhibition. Was this “high” art or was it something fundamentally different. Was it consumerist pop art for the masses, supported by sponsors such as BMW? Will the Web follow a similar path with quirky, aesthetic tastes of the savvy individual curator?
I think there is a growing need for people to be able to visit a “Curators” blog or website to get focused and informed information on specific subjects. Sure the content is biesed but it is less driven by corporate ethos and greed and more about passion.
Check out this interesting blog post on the subject of “The Curated Web” in a bit more detail.
