As others have said, this is fraught territory. Curation is not inherently good or bad, but we’ve been so burned by dark design patterns masquerading as “curation” across social media, Glass’ LACK of curation amounts to a comparative virtue.
I don’t know what the “answer” is without a lot more thought and research, but I’m very curious what would happen if we literally just let people mark their OWN photos as “top 1%” or “I’m extra proud of this one”, and surface those images in some way.
I know I’d personally love to see a gallery of “Stuff People Are Most Proud Of”. My gut says we’d be pleasantly surprised by how conscientious Glass people are when asked to earnestly self assess and choose a subset of their stuff for wider consumption.
