Attention Implosion

What do you get when you mix an attention-orientated society with the fact that the fiscal cost of creating an artifact of culture (and displaying it to the world) is virtually zero?

Attention implosion.

The people who will thrive in this attention economy will be those who figure how to create objects/content worthy of attention without being utterly sideswiped by the cultural obsession of merely getting attention in the first place.

Paying attention in a distracted world: it’s like bringing a gun to a knife fight.
