By curation, I mean to care for, and carefully select which content is shared, with the idea that removing something can sometimes make a collection even stronger.

This is not how I remember collecting growing up. I remember focusing on quality; on being very critical about what to add to a collection and what to keep out; about creating a collection that wasn’t just a bunch of stuff, but a reflection on the tastes of the curator, and the needs/desires of the audience.
