Is Curation as a Value Finally Here?

I watch (and post) a lot more YouTube videos now on Google+, and I was wondering about that. I think it's because there's a lot more curation going on. Certain people are good for finding funny things. Others are great at finding pertinent things. Others share inspirational finds. But ALL of that stuff is somewhere in YouTube (and on the rest of the web).

So, is Google+ finally just the place where curation gets its best shake? Is that why we all seem to like it here? Are we looking at each other's streams the way we look at "collections?"
