Word of the moment: curator

Have you noticed how many things are being curated these days? It's not a bad word. It means that a person is responsible for selecting, organizing, and looking after a collection. I've been noticing this for a while. A recent example was in an ad for a restaurant in which the wine list was said to be curated by someone. It was brought to mind immediately by an email from TED in which Chris Anderson (who is not the Chris Anderson of Wired) calls himself the "TED Curator."
