VRM and Personal Data Stores

In my previous post on VRM‘s Personal Data Stores, I discussed how we can decentralize information services by focusing on the user as the point of integration. Not only would that give the user direct control over their personal data–to the cheers of privacy advocates everywhere–it would provide a more robust, reliable, and scalable approach […]

2007 Not the Year of the Attention Economy

There’s been a lot said about the new Attention Economy and a lot of interest in generating value from “Attention Data.” The enthusiasm bubbles up from excitement about a new abundance to reach the conclusion that Attention is now the scarce resource that smart people will use to create wealth in our post-mass-media, post-mass-production world.

Real world attention…

Kim Cameron points to a post by Deborah Schultz, which happens to be a great segue into my follow up with Steve Gillmor: My latest mantra: Everyone step away from the keyboard and Engage with Intent in “offline community” Steve left me a comment the other day, inviting me to call him.

Bill Gross, inventor of the Pay-Per-Click business model (among other accomplishments), follows that thinking, saying in an interview with John Battelle: […]

Attention Ownership

Doc Searls replied to my comments about Attention and the AttentionTrust: We also tend to feel we own whatever parts of the world serve as extensions of ourselves.
