Tom Foremski (of Silicon Valley Watcher) and Oliver Starr (chief evangelist from Pearltrees) started the SF Curators Salon a few months back. It’s an informal gathering of folks from the San Francisco Bay Area who are interested in content curation in all its various forms.
The July 27 meeting featured brief presentations from Christine McCaull, one of the organizers of TEDx San Francisco, and Ken E. Kaplan, who works on Intel’s Free Press. Tom Abate from the San Francisco Chronicle was also scheduled to present but was unable to attend, so Foremski covered some of the Chronicle’s curation activities in his absence.

The recording was made on a Marantz PMD-620 digital recorder that Shel held in his hand during the presentation and subsequent discussions. The session was held at PeopleBrowsr’s offices just next to the I-80 freeway. The audio file has been processed to ensure clarity, but there is still some buzz in the background. The file is edited lightly for length.
