    I’m trying to figure out where “the kitchen junk drawer” or “the stuff in the attic”, not to mention “inside a little boy’s pockets” would fit in this graph.

    Thanks for the chuckle.

    Perhaps in a world without search this would be true. :) But when there are advanced search technologies (e.g. Google), it’s pretty easy to get quality even when simply accumulating.

    What an amazing coincidence – I see this on the day I got fed up with my wife’s accumulation of “junk” in the kitchen drawer!! She took the boys swimming while I cleaned out the drawer … I am proud that I have undoubtedly tilted our kitchen drawer towards “curation” … at least for the next few weeks/months!!

    As an assistant curator, I can tell you that this graph may not be exactly 100% accurate.

    The function on which both accumulation and curation data points lie could be called “excavation.” I used to own a junk removal company. I am also an OCD lifer. One day, I got hired by a man who had saved all his magazines his whole life. Turns out we shared the same doctor, but he had been off his meds. So maybe the z-axis could be “treatment”.

    i dunno… i think that curation (is that a word?) might have more quantity than the minimal expressed here.

  7. test says:

    medium/high quantity & quality = collector
