Content Curation Contest Is On!

Content Curation ContestEnter Content Curation Contest

Win an Ipad 2 or Kindle FIRE
The first Content Curation Contest seeks to discover the Top 10 content curators of 2011. The contest has two phases: APPLICATION (ends 226) and VOTING (starts the next day). If you love to curate content on Facebook, Twitter or Scoop.it you might win an Ipad 2, Kindle Fire or Fame and fortune with a profile page on Atlantic BT and a “TOP CURATOR” handle.

Easy Curation Contest Application
Wanted to keep application easy, friendly and FAST. The toughest question asks to describe your curration philosophy. This is a question I’m not sure I could answer. I curate a little like I used to paint. Generally I curate the intersection of Internet marketing, cancer survivorship, art and startups – the things I love and care about (cycling creeps in there too). We don’t need a polemic about curation philosophy as much as we need your sense of motivation and where you want to help, where you want to make a difference with your content curation. Don’t over think, have fun and know everyone at Atlantic BT appreciates your hard work.

Win Fame, Fortune and Appreciation
We created the Content Curation Contest to say THANKS and heap some rewards on people who help first and worry about awards later. Click on the link above to fill out our contest application – only takes a few minutes and you may be selected as a top curator, win fame, fortune and some of those drinks with little umbrellas in them. Good luck and thanks for everything you do to help others understand the information revolution.

Thanks for your had curating work. Together we understand faster and better than apart. Wisdom of curated crowds is the only way to survive Moore’s Law of content chaos.

Questions & Answers

Are there differences in application architecture that are important for the cloud?
It is important to build applications and workloads specifically for the cloud. You will want to carefully consider what services the cloud provider of your choice has to offer and how your application leverages those services.
Learn More
Are there any drawbacks to cloud hosting?
Yes, there will always be some risks associated with any hosting option. You are relying on the resiliency and engineering of infrastructure that has scaled at an astounding rate.
Learn More
What’s the benefit of hosting in the cloud vs. traditional options?
Reasons not to host in the cloud are few and far between. If you don't host in the cloud, you will spend more in both CapEx and OpEx to manage your applications or websites in a traditional environment.
Learn More
How can I improve the performance of my application?
There are several primary reasons that applications perform poorly, and in some cases it’s a combination of several. 1) Data latency: If your application is making calls to a data source (whether it’s an API or a direct call) and there is latency at the data provider, your application performance will suffer.
Learn More
Should I move my application to the cloud?
The answer is ‘probably yes’. There aren’t many reasons for an application to be hosted elsewhere, aside from occasional compliance standards, or requirements to integrate with local services that would require large amounts of data to move from on-premise to cloud.
Learn More
Where should my application be hosted?
There are many different options for hosting, but most applications would do well with one of the cloud providers -- Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure.
