Fun in meetings

I keep hearing about events being “curated” by somebodyorother, and I’ve been wondering what the preservation of museum collections had to do with, say, a series of concerts. I should have realised it was more “new media” or “social notworking” nonsense, then I’d have happily ignored the whole thing…

    I have to say I’ve never met anyone with that title, but its not really that hard to work out what that role would entail is it. Not knowing what you’re own job title means, now that will make you look silly.

      Oh yes, you can work out what it’s probably supposed to mean, but I’d still be inclined to question it. And I suspect that anyone who did give themselves a label like that would be precisely the kind of person who wouldn’t be able to define it.

      It’s a bit like all these people who go on endlessly about “engagement” in “social media”, and how important it is, but don’t actually talk about anything other than how important it all is.
