Glad to see I have at least one bit of resonating with Tim Bray: ongoing - ETech - On Attention. One thing I'm looking forward to is scouring the eTech 2006 post-event crumbs and blog postings to see if I can conjure up some "Aha!" moments around attention.

Perl I got. HTTP + HTML I got. Python I'm getting. Attention... I understand the concept and how showing up on tech.memeorandum or such represents a level of attention and building influence built by a non-discriminating community... but then what? It allows me to get more $$$ from my ads? I get a good book deal? I can influence trends? Maybe I'm being too capitalistic, but what is the currency of the attention economy and what is the goods / wealth I'm accumulating?
