Attention Please! Your Metadata Is Showing!

From Ester Dyson's Release 1.0, Steve Gilmor recognizes an important emerging concept since blogs became prevelant as information delivery channels in our world of communications. Links - and the metadata about them - allow the spontaneous emergence of structure.

Tools have emerged in order to capture, document and track those tags and links, forming new structures of identity and meaning.

The emergence of "attention-based ecosystems on proprietary platforms, while others are attempting to broaden the use and interoperability of attention metadata so that communities and other attention-defined structures can emerge on the open Web."
