Attention Economy

About: G+ Curating Content for the Attention Economy

Do you actually own your own attention? #synero google & others might want to sell your attention to clients, eh? This item is a node to the G+ interest on the subject. The term pay attention may mean something different in the future. If you wonder just try & keep your focus on exactly one thing that you want to focus upon & see how long it lasts that you own your own attention.  Then inquire if you own your own beliefs, emotions, politics, preferences .....

hey,  "ownership of attention" seems to be the topic here ... from my perspective i did not distract from that ... rather i informed it. 

Do I own my attention, do you, or do we? ... that, Bozo thinks, is the question here.
Now your attention is distracted by internal feelings of an RWG.


hmmm ... my attention ... or yours?   should you not speak for yourself?

you might actually grock a surprising thing were you to objectively read the dialogue here from start to finish and notice who caused the shift in attention.  i must admit that i am surprised that you think it was me. 
Just read the about line of this item maybe just clam up!

i think we necessarily need to give up the notion that we own our on attention ... and even that we own our own mind.   The individual ego identify *is* a natural boundary for many consequences ... but not necessarily for attention and mind ... for those it is quite an arbitrary boundary ... enforced only by choice or prejudice  or habit.   For example, my attention was pulled to this subject, not by myself, but because we share this mind thingey here.   That i let that distraction happen notwithstanding that my intent was to focus on twin brooks farms this morning is just the way my peculiar ball bounces

PR suggests that it is the selfie which identifies with the mind & (all the rest of your stuff above) and as such, identity need not be so. It can change. But, place your "I" anywhere you choose & see how well you like it.

yes, definitely, ... letting my selfie be outside of myself is what BOZO is all about here Allan Watts also spoke of that.   I think we can think outside of our own selfie mind ... in those things which involve us .... out in the culture at large even.  it's not really all that scary really to let your self go ... memes of the  Ayn Rands of the world notwithstanding.
I corrected your birdie above.

what makes you think it is just me?  Why do you focus on my selfie, when that is what can actuall vary and take on other perspectives ... and then of course, why do you think it is just me that is doing that?  You do have a peculiar focus on this here ... do you not?

in any case, thanks again for what puled your attention that was so very important that you thought i should be corrected ... strange ... i used "we" there intentionally just so that would happen to you .
Interesting how your attention got predictably controlled & side tracked from what this item is about onto your standard line of bullshit & birdies.
