Curation is the difference between what you think people will like versus what you know they’ll like.
John Peel said something like this once. It’s one skill to discover art, another to educate people about it.
Peel mastered curation by using his radio shows to expose the world to all forms of music, including reggae and punk when they were underground genres.
Peel challenges us all to share our good taste, getting over the smugness in finding something first. After all, mass adoption is a vindication of visionaries.
Be happy when the world embraces your style and push them again and again until they get it.
Peel discovered, shared, and blossomed. He’s still recognized as the greatest rock DJ to this day.
