Digital curation

The University of Maine (yes, Maine) now offers a two-year online certificate program in what it calls Digital Curation, i.e., "the selection, preservation, maintenance, and archiving of digital resources."  http://digitalcuration.umaine.edu/ 

And here's a link to local TV news item entitled "Why are women captivated by Pinterest?" in which a UM professor says "it has something to do with the domestic origins of the curatorial instinct later professionalized by galleries and museums."

Anyone here a Pinterester?

Do you buy the argument about "domestic origins of the curatorial instinct"?
