Lots of people curate our news for us (Facebook, CNN, etc) so that we get only the news that we want. What if your job was to curate the top stories to different national security decision-makers that each had their own interests? Due to their incredibly demanding schedules, our nation’s leaders receive only a quick briefing with a printed book containing the news and information they need to know. How would you curate a more relevant briefing book for these decision makers?
If you were the curator for these books, how could we use your experiences choosing each day’s stories to refine, prioritize, and suggest the most relevant content for future briefing books?
