There’s been a lot of handwringing lately about “curation” (the original meaning of the word has morphed into something else entirely; maybe we still lack a needed word). It has come to signify sifting through the ever-increasing avalanche of “content” in order to identify the things that are worthiest of our attention, and bringing those things to an interested audience. In fact, there should be no question about this at all; with our time and attention being limited as they are, it’s crucial that we have skilled cultural guides.
Appreciate the thought, but the leap from ‘skilled Cultural Guide’ to ‘Censor’ is very short. Google and FB already practice soft censorship silently. Crap and kitsch are the inevitable price of freedom of choice.
