I'm at the Kelsey Group conference on, well, not sure what it's on. I came down here to meet up with Seth Goldstein on an attention project. The title is Drilling Down on Local: The Online-Offline Opportunity.

I spent most of yesterday afternoon chatting with LinkedIn's co-founder Konstantin Guericke, who opened my eyes to the business social network value proposition. He was on a panel this morning with Mark Pincus, late of Tribe.Net, Craig Donato of oodle.com, and others debating the Future of Online Classifieds. When I get some time, I'll do a brain dump on what Konstantin told me offline about LinkedIn. Local, I still don't get. LinkedIn, I now get.

With Rojo now live, check out the Frequent Feeds view, which is the doorway into attention I mentioned yesterday. Right now it's wired to any explicit gestures you make: clicking on the story link, flagging, tagging, emailing, or clicking the feed itself. Each click or action produced a vote for attention, generating an interactive list of the top 20 feeds. Coming next is a "river flow" view of those feeds, which will surely become the default view for the client.  For me.

I expected more pushback on yesterday's full text = monitization post. Instead, I got props from James Governor, a good overview from Jeff Clavier, and a back channel conversation with paidContent's  Staci Kramer, who says most of their stories are full text. Still chatting on the rest. Just got a ping from Tim Bray about Rojo but no comment on my full text request; no response from Rafat. C'mon guys, let's clear these feeds so I can go after another 4 or 5 crazy guys.

Update from Tim Bray: Gonna have to break down on the full-content feed thing one of these months.

Okay, how about April...
