We have been very interested in our life on the internet. The RO/LU blog put us in touch with so many like-minded friends… but we almost never see them in person as, they are all over the world.
We think about a scenario where we are deeply engrossed in something we are reading, and aren’t very aware of anything around us. Then, a firetruck goes past and we notice the sound of it stopping nearby. It feels like we leave the “place” we’re in for a moment and travel somewhere else…
We wonder about these friendships and the “place” the internet is. It makes us happy. Maybe our attention is a sort of place?
We invited a bunch of our favorite internet friends to contribute to a project called Attention As Place. We’d have invited way more but, we ran out of resources.
