That's why I asked. Now I'm seeing that word everywhere.

Yeah, "curated news" is a new buzzword for sites like Paper.li, Scoop.it and Storify. It's what you're doing on Tech Writer This Week too, so congratulations on your new "curator" title. 8-)

I've been seeing "curate" increasingly used as a verb in the sense of "to pick items of high quality and/or interest".

Examples:

* http://fueled.com/craft-coffee-curate-your-morning-ritual/

"Curate" is a very specific term that is used in my specialty of writing to
scientific software. In the science world, it means to research and
integrate diverse forms of data, including that from scientific collections,
and specific jobs are advertised as Scientific Data Curator Jobs.

Subject: When to use the word "curate?"
Morning, Whirlers,

As I browsed a few newsy sites this morning, I saw the word "curate" being
used where I used to see "written," "compiled," "developed," or even
"created."

I put it to you all. When should we use "curate," and when should we not?

Cordially,
Craig Cardimon
