As an inspiration from TED, which gave me the sparkle to create this site, this page presents some references of articles and will help you to figure out what to post.
If you also have ideas to share, please add them at [Discuss] at the end this article.
1. Information is food
In this era of information overload, What information should I keep for myself and others?
We are living in information society and most of our economy is built upon idea and thinking. When Motorola was sold, their value after decades of manufacturing operation was mostly determined solely by their patents (= idea). After all, the value of individuals and national economy are judged by the quality of thinking. However, we tend to waste our most valuable asset with useless, biased, or manipulated information. From such idea, I realized that we should revise our business/economy platform to provide security of our future in advance.
Information is food by JP Rangaswami at TED 2012
We can serve good information, and cook them in our own imaginative ways.
“We were hunter-gatherers of information, and we moved from that to becoming farmers and cultivators of information.”
Mere Exposure Effect By Robert Zajonc
Our cognitive system is a sensory one and the information that you read repeatedly will eventually build the person you become.
So what information do you want to expose to yourself and your loved ones?
The next common sense : Social Representation by Serge Moscovici
Social representation and the aid field by Hélène Joffe, 1998
The spontaneous philosophies they concoct in cafes, offices, hospitals and laboratories is presumed to build up their sense of reality. The chatter that surrounds people - in newspapers and on the television, in the snippets of conversation overheard on the bus - acts like a material force. It is just as "real" an environment is to people, and as influential on the course of their actions, as more physical entities: "where reality is concerned, these representations are all we have, that to which our perceptual, as well as our cognitive, systems are adjusted." (Moscovici, 1984b:5) “...
“Three key processes forge a social representation: (i) the transformation of expert ideas, via communication, into lay thinking; (ii) the bringing forward of past ideas and imposing them on the new event which needs to be understood; and (iii) the saturation of the event which needs to be interpreted with the symbolic meanings that exist in the culture”
As days go by, we hope you to grow with us too.
2. Function of Curation and Curator
What is the meaning of true function of curator?
Definition from Wikipedia
A curator (from Latin: curare meaning "take care") is a manager or overseer. Traditionally, a keeper of a cultural heritage institution is a content specialist responsible for an institution's collections and involved with the interpretation of heritage material. Their responsibilities have acquisitions and even collections care…...research with the public and community through exhibitions and publications….In contemporary art, the title curator is given to a person who selects and often interprets works of art.
Beyond mere collection and bookmarking
If you find yourself making mindless shares and forwarding online, please stop and think first if we can curate them with other contents to give new perspectives or ideas to others. Use this site as your exhibition gallery to show your artwork of curation.
Giving new perspectives or observations.
Two quotations to more or less end with. One of them is
"Poetry is when you make new things familiar and familiar things new."
Which isn't a bad definition of what our job is: to help people appreciate what is unfamiliar, but also to gain a greater appreciation and place a far higher value on those things which are already existing. The next quote is by G.K. Chesterton. "We are perishing for want of wonder, not for want of wonders."
In this site, we devised the term, Motive(motivation) - a topic or keyword that functions as the connecting dot that bridge all sub-contents to make sense……could be a common denominator or some ground to share……As a curator, we are not setting a conclusion, but merely presenting alternatives or other possible views to learn.

温故而知新(wēn gù'ér zhī xīn)
why do we need to restore?
Learn new things by reviewing the old or discover new things by studying the past. (온고지신: On-Go-Ji-Shin)

3. Road ahead
While you, as a publisher, is working on creativity in a content, our engineers will do best on providing the optimal information consumption(distribution).
1) better experience, augmenting enchantment (e.g. visually stunning and graceful animation).
2) optimal delivery of contents on schedule.
To do that, we are working on the things below. Help us if you have any…...
- advanced education on mind, learning from studies of cognitive science research
- pervasive computing - context aware & immersive web & data mining
