Attention podcast : Attention with Steve Gillmor, Joshua Porter and Alex Barnett

When Joshua Porter and I started our non-formal podcasting efforts a while ago, we made list of the people we'd want to have on our 'show' and talk to.

High on both our lists was Steve Gillmor. So we were thrilled when he accepted our invitation to join us for this podcast (mp3. 58 minutes, 14mb) and discuss his Attention ideas with us.

Steve has been leading Attention conversation for some time now. In 2003 he, along with David Sifry (CEO of Technorati), initiated the attention.xml efforts and has since taken on the role as president of the non-profit Attention Trust.

He is also a contributing editor of ZDNet and host of the podcast series The Gillmor Gang

I remember when I first came across his Gillmor Gang show while it was originally hosted at IT Conversations.  I was in heaven - people talking about technology stuff I was really interested in...I've been hooked ever since. So it was little weird doing the show tonight - it felt like I was listening in on one of his shows and had to remind myself that I had to talk too 😉

Anyway, the podcast we recorded tonight was a cracker. Steve's level of thinking on Attention topic is deep and knowledgeable - it was fun trying to keeping up with him.  Thanks to Steve for his time.

    A 58 minute long podcast about attention. Am I the only one who sees the irony in that?

    Eran – maybe…it depends on the type of irony you are referring to: dramatic, verbal, Socratic or Cosmic irony. Which is it?

  3. Eran says:

    Irony 2.0, what else? 🙂

  4. Excellent podcast. I seldom listen to podcasts, but this one was worth an hour of my time.

    I appreciate the whole ‘attention’ irony, but nevertheless…

  5. Excellent quote from Joshua Schachter of "Aggregation is often a focus of attention (latest, most active, etc.) As the population gets larger, the bias drifts; becomes less interesting to the original community members.
