Curation starts when search stops working
Curation is perhaps the most valuable skill in the connected world. We all suffer from information overload, so people who take the care to distill what is interesting and present it thoughtfully are to be cherished.
One of my favourite curators is Andrew Brown whose monthly round-up of interesting facts about alcohol and other drugs are carefully located and unearthed from a wide range of recent reports, statistical releases and the like.
Andrew works for MEAM/Making Every Adult Matter, the coalition of three national charities (Clinks, Homeless Link and Mind) who champion the cause of people experiencing multiple needs and who have been kind enough to allow Andrew’s monthly slideshares to be re-published here.
My favourite slide this month (number 2) is the fact that despite recent reports about young people drinking less alcohol, we Brits still binge drink much more than any other country in the EU.
