More about Steven Rosenbaum:
Steven Rosenbaum, author, curator, and founder and CEO of Magnify.net, serves as the City’s first ever Entrepreneur at Large. In this role, Steven will tap into his deep roots within New York’s tech and entrepreneurial community in order to strengthen and further develop the City’s already strong connections with the community.
Steven Rosenbaum is an author, entrepreneur, and curator. In his groundbreaking new book Curation Nation (McGraw Hill / 2011) he argues that the current path of digital content creation is a recipe for disaster. Interviewing 70 of the leading thinkers in media, publishing, and advertising, Rosenbaum makes a compelling case that the future of the web is curated, not created. And if history is any judge, he's been able to predict the future before.
As the CEO of the web's largest Video Curation Platform, Magnify.net - he provides a realtime curation solution that powers more than 86,000 sites. Increasingly, crated content is powering ecommerce, brands, and organizations like Patagonia, NY Magazine, Mediaite, and TEDx. Rosenbaum created MTV's groundbreaking user-generated series MTV UNfiltered, a pre-web television project that handed cameras to young storytellers. Before email or the web, UNfiltered was what Time Magazine called "the Future of GenX News."
Since that time he has built a career finding, organizing, and contextualizing stories.
Rosenbaum's work in media includes filmmaking work as an Emmy Award winning documentary filmmaker. His film “7 Days In September” gathered more than 500 hours of video around 9/11 – creating a curated journey through the eyes of 28 filmmakers and citizen storytellers.
Rosenbaum's vision of curation is the subject of his book Curation Nation (McGrawHill / Spring 2011) engages with more than 60 thought leaders and companies to help explore and define the power of Curation for Brands, Media, and Consumers.
