In a longish article on APML, “Attention Profiling”, MasterNewMedia writes:
“We have reached the point of information hyper-saturation. It can become quite a chore to find relevant content online, when there is so much other information competing for your attention. But by implementing attention profiling, it becomes possible to have the services and websites you visit begin to make suggestions for content that you might be interested in.”
I can’t feel comforted by the thought that darkly secret algorithms are going to steer the masses’ information grazing.
