Emily Chang - My Data Stream
- February 19, 2007
- After a year and a half of using social applications heavily, I recently had to revisit the plan to aggregate all my activity into one data stream. As the calendar rolled to 2007, I kept wishing I could look at all my social activity from 2006 in context: time, date, type of activity, location, memory, information interest, and so on. What was I bookmarking, blogging about, listening to, going to, and thinking about?

- by John C. Beck and Thomas H. Davenport, Accenture Point of View, Auguste 2001
- For several years we have been investigating how the boom of information technology—and the concomitant “info glut”—has affected corporate leadership. Our research has convinced us that attention is the scarce resource in today’s economy and that it can be managed.
- Since attention management now plays such a critical role in a company’s success, corporate leaders must take on the responsibility of helping themselves and the people in their organization learn how to manage attention.

The structuring of organizational attention and the enactment of economic adversity : a reconciliation of theories of failure-induced change and threat-rigidity
- by Ocasio, William, Working paper (Sloan School of Management); 3577-93.
- This paper presents a theoretical examination of how organizational attention structures enact economic adversity. The theory explicitly links the cognitive psychology that underlies risk-seeking behavior and threat-rigidity with the social groupings and cultural logic that structure thinking and decisionmaking in organizations.

- Attention and the Focused Life
- By Winifred Gallagher, Penguin Press. 244 pp, 2009
- Don't check your e-mail; stop Twittering, browsing, Facebooking, eating, drinking, listening to music and watching the children. Take seriously, if just for a few minutes, what Winifred Gallagher describes as the grand unifying theory of psychology: Your life is the sum of what you focus on.

The Economics of Attention: Style and Substance in the Age of Information
- by Richard A. Lanham, 2006
- In this exploration of the changing economics of our information-based world, Lanham, professor emeritus of English at UCLA and author of The Electronic Word, proposes the problem with the information economy is "information doesn't seem in short supply. Precisely the opposite. We're drowning in it." Lanham posits that as society moves from a world defined by "stuff" to one defined by "fluff," people are increasingly in need of filters to weed through the information glut.

Attent with Serios
- Attent with Serios is an enterprise productivity application inspired by multiplayer online games. It tackles the problem of information overload in corporate email using psychological and economic principles from successful games. Attent creates a synthetic economy with a currency (Serios) that enables users to attach value to an outgoing email to signal importance. It gives recipients the ability to prioritize messages and a reserve of currency that they can use to signal importance of their messages to others. Attent also provides a variety of tools that enable everyone to track and analyze communication patterns and information exchanges in the enterprise.
Standards and formats
- Attention.XML is an open standard, built on open source (see XOXOSampleCode) that helps you keep track of what you've read, what you're spending time on, and what you should be paying attention to.
- Attention Profiling Markup Language
- AMPL is an open standard that encapsulates a summary of your interests - accross devices and profiles - in a simple portable way.
- APML will allow users to export and use their own personal Attention Profile in much the same way that OPML allows them to export their reading lists from Feed Readers.The idea is to boil down all forms of Attention Data – including Browser History, OPML, Attention.XML, Email etc – to a portable file format containing a description of ranked user interests.
