Attention Economy: Dealing with Information Overload

Back in Time

I know what you’re thinking! What on earth is Attention Economy? Okay, we’ll get to that, but first let’s go back in time a little…

Do you remember the pre-Internet era!? If you do, you probably remember that the information we were exposed to was limited to a few TV channels, some newspapers, and a couple of magazines.

[notification]

Oh, Look! Someone just followed you on [put your favourite social network here]!

Of course, that little ‘new follower’ notification makes you happy – just a little; don’t say no! Then, unless you’re like a very celebrity-like popular kinda person, you’ll probably go and check out your new follower’s profile – you know, just to see who’s gonna see what you post.

This means everything becomes more and more personalised – I mean over-personalised – to the point where we won’t see anything outside of our “interests” or our “comfort zone”. Here, in this post I’m explaining why this is a concern, and how to break out of this bubble.

Happiness: Experience vs. Memory

The word ‘happiness’ seems like such a simple word. It’s like you know it too well to think about it consciously. But what’s happiness?

Are you happy in your life? Are you happy with your life?

Although you might not pay much attention to it, according to Daniel Kahneman, those are two very different concepts lumped in the notion of happiness.
