A curator (from Latin: curare, meaning “to take care”) is a manager or overseer.
Digital curation is the selection, preservation, maintenance, collection and archiving of digital assets. The term curation in the past commonly referred to museum and library professionals. It has since been applied to interaction with social media including compiling digital images, web links and movie files.
Internet art (often referred to as net art) is a form of digital artwork distributed via the Internet.
Mail art (also known as postal art and correspondence art) is a populist artistic movement centered on sending small scale works through the postal service. Electronic spamming is the use of electronic messaging systems to send an unsolicited message (spam). By the 1990s, mail art’s peak in terms of global postal activities had been reached, and mail artists, aware of increasing postal rates, were beginning the gradual migration of collective art projects towards the web and new, cheaper forms of digital communication. The Internet facilitated faster dissemination of mail art calls (invitations) and precipitated the involvement of a large number of newcomers. Mail art blogs and websites became ever more frequently used to display contributions and online documentation,[original research?] even if many[who?] mail artists still preferred the surprise of a catalogue found in their mailbox.[original research?] While the most widely recognized form of spam is email spam, the term is applied to similar abuses in other media: instant messaging spam, Usenet newsgroup spam, Web search engine spam, spam in blogs, wiki spam, online classified ads spam, mobile phone messaging spam, Internet forum spam, junk fax transmissions, social spam, spam mobile apps, television advertising and file sharing spam. It is named after Spam, a luncheon meat, by way of a Monty Python sketch about a restaurant that has spam in every dish and where patrons annoyingly shout spam over and over again.
An information filtering system is a system that removes redundant or unwanted information from an information stream using (semi)automated or computerized methods prior to presentation to a human user. Its main goal is the management of the information overload and increment of the semantic signal-to-noise ratio.
Email filtering is the processing of email to organize it according to specified criteria. Most often this refers to the automatic processing of incoming messages, but the term also applies to the intervention of human intelligence in addition to anti-spam techniques, and to outgoing emails as well as those being received.
Curator [who?] is a spam filter.
