Ted Leung on the air: Open Source, Java, Python, and ...
[via O'Reilly Radar ]:
Nat Torkington posted a great set of notes on Linda Stone's talk at SuperNova. A while back I was fortunate enough to spend some time talking with Linda about the ideas in Nat's notes. If you are interested in attention, you really need to look over the notes. A lot of the current discussion about attention (at least related to RSS) has focused on the technology aspects -- how to collect attention data, how to mark it up, and how to mix up the data to do triage. Linda's stuff looks at the human impact of the attention problem, and that's not just limited to RSS. Here's her take on where it's all going:
The next aphrodisiac is committed full-attention focus. In this new area, experiencing this engaged attention is to feel alive. Trusted filters, trusted protectors, trusted concierge, human or technical, removing distractions and managing boundaries, filtering signal from noise, enabling meaningful connections, that make us feel secure, are the opportunity for the next generation. Opportunity will be the tools and technologies to take our power back.
As additional food for thought: some of these ideas are similar to themes in "The Support Economy: Why Corporations Are Failing Individuals and The Next Episode of Capitalism" (Shoshana Zuboff, James Maxmin).
