Attention – The *Real* Aphrodisiac

• Linda Stone, Consultant, former Corporate Vice President, Microsoft
Corporation (United States)

continuously partional attention

so many things are great in small doses

the context is more complex

framework developed
it was the age of self employing; to enhance our abilities

if you focus on self expressing 24/7 it leads to narcissism

now the network is the centre of gravity

weapons of mass communication contribute to the use of drugs like prozac

overstimulation by connect connect connect

you need cycles to feel good; with no winter there is no spring.
always on has no cycles

30% of the send e-mail is not essential

we want meaningful relationships.

exausted by a culture of stimulations

resunate more deeply with each other

we want signals that resonate with our values

we want to make the best choices i a world full of choices

think Apple, think ipod

focussed on taking only the information we need

information workers to knowledge workers > to wisdom workers

products that offers quality of live in stead o easy of use
