I hadn’t come across the works of Umair Haque and Bubblegen before Scott Karp pointed to this amazing presentation on the economics of Media 2.0. I’ve only just started trying to absorb it, but already I’m hooked. It deals in pretty plain terms with the fundamental matters of production and attention, and has some fascinating ideas about how attention is mediated by media in a networked landscape. When I find the time I’ll try and absorb it more completely.
