14 Nov Where is my continuous partial attention?
Those of us involved in social media spend a good deal of our time rabbiting on about continuous partial attention, the ambient intimacy afforded to us and the social capital generated by use of the tools we leverage such as Facebook and Twitter as well as the real, human communities these actually represent.
In a time poor existence, the sheer load that staying in touch with these communities and people represents is pretty significant – alongside using all my social tools, I try to keep abreast of almost 300 feeds. It’s a daunting task, and one that sometimes gets the better of me. That said, I do have a list of must read blogs. This list represents a mix of friends, colleagues, industry peers and informative sites that are the fire hose of information that drives my online life. This group represents the best (in a totally subjective way) in information architecture, user experience, social media, online culture, community building and knowledge management.
If any of this interests you, take a look at the public page and see whether there’s something there that can add value for you.
