In the recommender and algorithm industry?
Check the link below to join a community of people who care about putting quality recommendations first. The basic idea is to create a space where data scientists and project managers and students can put aside, just for a moment, the constant focus on narrow company-specific goals, and learn / collaborate with others in an open environment to discuss how to create quality recommendations.
Its an opportunity to focus on the bigger picture. Music recommenders, medical, restaurant, or media, it doesn’t matter where you come from. We can work together to make the industry better. Learn more below.

This is short and more useful than most. About how our attention can be directed by us, or hacked by outside influences.
It may seem odd to share this article because it bashes typical algorithms - but the truth is, we bash typical algorithms as well. When it comes to curation, many algorithms deserve to be bashed. They are designed do maximize clicks, not satisfaction.
Which is why we made Bibblio. People deserve better.
A quote from the article -
“Having an unexpected stimulus grab your attention could alert you to a tiger crouched in the bushes..Push notifications take advantage of this".

Daily (personalised) newsletters powered by algorithms were nearly twice as likely to be opened and almost three times more likely to have a story actually read by a subscriber than a (same for everyone) newsletter created by editor. - Austin American-Statesman

"There is decay, corruption and deceit now sitting at the heart of online advertising."
Making money by deceiving people is as old as time, but it doesn't have to be YOUR choice. There are better ways to monetize your content. A great recommender system combined with a subscription model can reward great content and reduce churn.

A very personal look at how curation can influence and direct personal development.
"I’ve learnt that the wider my frame of reference, the more I can draw upon, the better the ideas informing my work will be."
Anyone or anything that takes the role of a curator also takes on the responsibility for creating a frame of reference and everything that goes with that.

"Curation turns noise into meaning – solving the web’s biggest problem in the process."
An older article that does a good job of pointing out how curation is essential for cutting through all the noise and finding quality. If we really do live in a world where "people have the freedom to be prolific in things they have no talent for", curation may be the way to stay above the information flood.

"Fraudulent operators using robots to impersonate people clicking on digital ads will rob the advertising industry of $6.3 billion in 2015...digital ad fraud has increasingly become a problem in recent months, the report found the bots were gaming not only bare-bones and unsophisticated websites but also respected and established lifestyle and news publishers"
That was 2 years ago.
Ads are often measured by the number of people who view the ads. When those 'views' are being generated by bots designed to lift income for ad agencies, its called fraud.

“If people don't read what you write,” he once said, “then what you write is a museum piece.” - Theodore Levitt.
It can be difficult to separate your content from the noise that surrounds us. The article describes how recommender systems and quality-first curation capture attention and separate your content from everything else.
Even, ironically, for museum pieces.
