Post-Attention Economy

Warren Ellis provided some food for thought in his „Morning, Computer” posting:

Post-attention economy. Three words I strung together in yesterday’s newsletter, laughed at, and then kind of cocked my head and looked at again. It was mostly a gag — this is the season where we stick post- on things, after all — and yet maybe part of my brain wasn’t joking. It came out of Ed Zitron’s recent new selection of pieces on The Next Web about the broken parts of PR, and my own experience of social media as having become irretrievably loud and mechanically detuned. There’s a ceiling on what people can achieve on their own through the old “guerrilla marketing” paradigm, and it’s lowering. And curation can’t be heard so well, either.
I want to connect all these things up as symptoms of end-of-cycle. I could be wrong. Maybe I just have a different vantage on the attention economy, the systems of curation, speech and broadcasting that have obtained online over the last fifteen years. I’m not arguing for a “return” to anything, no kind of rearguard action: more waiting to see what the next cycle looks like.

FAZ-Ökonomenranking 2015: Verhaltensökonom Ernst Fehr

Darüber freuen sich auch Politiker, die neben Steuern und Verboten noch ganz neue Werkzeuge in die Hand bekommen, das Verhalten ihrer Bürger zu beeinflussen. Im vergangenen Jahr erst hat Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel eine entsprechende Truppe in ihrem Kanzleramt aufgebaut. So viel steht fest: Ihre Verhaltensforscher haben einige Lehren von Fehr und seinen Schülern mitgenommen. Und selbst wenn die Organisation Foodwatch eine Kampagne gegen zuckerhaltige Lebensmittel anstößt, profitiert sie davon, dass Menschen heute als weniger rational gelten als früher.

Hello Future Pastebin Readers

Sometimes, people ask me why I don’t keep a sticker over my webcam. “If you’ve already owned me enough to turn on the webcam,” I say, “The least I can do is force you to watch me pick my nose.”
