“If Einstein were alive today he would be thinking about the laws of time and space, but in a digital context. The digital space will expand infinitely. Time, and more importantly, attention remains relatively finite.

This dynamic – which is bankable – will give rise to digital curators. Some will be automated. Others will be human powered. But all of them will influence what we read, think, buy and do.

In Curation Nation Steve Rosenbaum fills in nicely as a digital-era Einstein. Through expert interviews, he shows how to adapt our businesses to this new space-time continuum, yet all the while with a historical perspective. The end result is an artfully curated work that is particularly a must-read for anyone in media, technology or marketing.”
