Geeking with Greg:


All in all, a very interesting talk. It's long and time consuming --and there's no transcript available, unfortunately -- but it's worth a listen.


Greg Linden mines the Bosworth/Gillmor Gang conversation for some nifty nuggets. In the process he illustrates just what Adam is really talking about: the anatomy of attention. Talking about personalization, Greg notes:

In weblogs, it's even better. There's millions of weblogs out there.It's quite hard to find good ones. The signal to noise ratio isshockingly poor. A personalized weblog reader can recommend relevantweblogs you've never heard of (like, perhaps, this one). And it surfacethe occasional gem on high traffic but low value weblogs.

Read the whole post; the quotes and commentary are equally informative. Well done, Greg (who I hadn't heard of before Bosworth and attention smoked him out.)

Bonus: here's another one.
