Wisdom of the Crowd vs. Curator

I got a chance to ask Drew Curtis of Fark a ton of questions. I’ll try to get more of the interview up soon. This one part struck me as really interesting. I asked about how he curates for Fark – he almost entirely ignores his audience.

At first the idea might seem counterintuitive, especially if you use sites like Digg, but there is something to be said for the curator. Extremes and balances make for many fine options.
