Q. Hi!
I’m an italian science writer …..
It would be fantastic if I could get your opinion: do you really think “attention” will be the true value of coming future? Why?

A. Yes. I have written about this extensively.. Click on the link “Older writings” to the right and look at earlier entries in this blog.
The (very) short answer as to why is because attention from other human beings (or our own) is intrinsically scarce AND desirable, so when possible the competition for it mounts and mounts, more and more dominating how we live.
