Protocol for Deploying Your Attention

While reading the posts in my Google Buzz account I came across a link from Will Richardson to this wonderful video on RSS ,

Infotention 3: Building Information Dashboards, Radars, Filters by Howard Rheingold. Since I’m preparing for a Google Reader Workshop, this video drew my attention. Mr. Rheingold is suggesting a methodology to control the information coming to you. He states that you need mental, cognitive, and social strategies for deploying your attention. We have to decide what to pay attention to and when, plus choose the best tools for the job. He models using NetVibes for your reader, where I’ll be using Google Reader in my workshop. This video is best suited for an experienced subscriber. Excellent content here.
