I think in this case it adds a level of "authority" because Matt is basically the face of Google in this industry. But I think people don't go beyond the surface and realize that he has incentive to say one thing when the reality might be something completely different."
Absolutely, and I clarify that he talks about this in the context of SEO. But even in the context of SEO it's not dead. Actually, if you do it RIGHT, it's not even dead (or won't be for a long time) in the spammy form either. Of course they have the power to devalue anything they want. It's their business, their product, they can do with it as they wish. No one is arguing that point."
Thanks so much for the comments! Makes me happy I joined :). I don't think curation as a concept is necessarily new, but it's definitely taking off now. Makes sense with the amount of information people have to sift through each day. helping people find the good stuff adds a lot of value."
