We are all curators now—the image-based Pinterest has become the fastest-growing social media network of all time, outpacing the trading-card collections of Facebook and the grammatically challenged punditry of Twitter by orders of magnitude. Its commercial potential is obvious. Running the Skydeck Chicago Pinterest boards sounds simple enough—most of us don’t get to hang out there much, and the view is incredible. But the Skydeck boards take a broader view of the city, featuring local history, a “bucket list” and, yes, Midwestern food porn.
