Attention crash

Writing about web page http://www.micropersuasion.com/2007/06/the_attention_c.html

We are reaching a point where the number of inputs we have as individuals is beginning to exceed what we are capable as humans of managing.

Spent many hours over the past week as a newbie online conference delegate. To give point of reference to the scale here I have read 500+ postings from other delegates and probably still have just as many more left to read…

In terms of the presentations themselves and the multimedia options available I have found it soothing to rest the eyes occasionally, sometimes actually closing them, to listen to the audio links.

It also suited me to have the option of listening to audio snippets when reading through papers. Nothing very technically elaborate just the option to listen to an audio file summary after a couple of paragraphs of text.

The closing session was presented as a powerpoint flash thing with audio synch. IMHO resting my eyes and just listening to the audio would have been just fine. Maybe it’s a very personal thing.

Anyway will be trying to include more audio options to compliment our current online content.
