Why content curation is a new form of communication

These are the slides of a talk Guillaume gave at the University of San Francisco on Sept. 17, 2013.

In a post Web 2.0 world, communication has to be re-invented which brings a huge opportunity to individuals, organizations or brands: content curation. While the history of communication until the end of the previous century has only been focusing on enlarging the distribution to a few published or broadcasted content creators, we now live in information overload where content curators can be the new super heroes.
