"There's been quite a bit of blog froth about the subject of attention, and the development of Attention Trust, a group dedicated to ensuring that people's attention is appropriately valued. I was hoping I could avoid saying much about it, because it seems like a circle jerk of well-meaning technologists who are totally out of touch with consumer needs. "
Ouch. I don't know what to say to Peter, except:
1. I've never heard of the 'circle jerk' term before
2. Peter, are you making your way to Seattle for the workshop Adaptive Path is running there in February? If so, I'm not going myself but I'd love to meet.
