About this link:

I haven't read "Move Fast and Break Things", though it's on my list, and 
"Chaos Monkeys" is a very good read if one can ignore the tone of the 
writer, which sometimes is a bit over the top, but I here I want to do a 
small comment on the other title, "The Attention Merchants". This is 
where I first became exposed on the idea of "attention as a resource 
exploited by third parties". This brought me to the "right to attention" 
[1] and another treatment of the same topic with a different angle, "The 
World beyond your head" [2].

I'd be grateful if someone could provide more readings related to this 
topic.

Thanks a million,

JMM.
