Not long ago we shared our view on the whole misuse of the words curator and curate debate. Originally only pop-culture creators and people trying to sell themselves as merchant connoisseurs called themselves curators. Now our own colleagues, the educators, are using the word to elevate their retail outlet. They invite you to, “Browse through a selection of top museum education books curated by the people who know them best–the Museum-Ed Discussion List.”

Go ahead curators, be angry. Tell your educator colleagues off. They won’t care. They think you’re a greedy elitist already. Your rant will only prove it to them.
