Getting your attention is big business

Some interesting thoughts from Om Malik, founder of GigaOm, after their latest acquisition. He hints that while everyone can blog only certain websites can grab users attention and continue to do so 다운로드.

Media is the new Wild West

We are quite strategic about our acquisitions — we acquire media entities only if we love the people and believe that we are at the starting phase of a trend 다운로드. In 2008, we acquired jkOnTheRun as our tip of the hat to the growing demand for mobile devices and the changes it would bring into society. Later that year, we brought in The Apple Blog because we knew the best was yet to come for Apple 다운로드. Both of those acquisitions have helped GigaOM cover the issues that matter most to our ultimate customers — you, the reader — in a smart, sensible fashion 더미다 다운로드.

“The question that mass amateurization poses to traditional media is ‘What happens when the costs of reproduction and distribution go away 다운로드? What happens when there is nothing unique about publishing anymore because users can do it for themselves?’ We are now starting to see that question being answered.”— Clay Shirky

Shirky’s observation means that we are in a time of chaos where the very idea of media is being questioned 다운로드. And as a Chinese proverb says, from chaos emerges opportunity. I believe the best is yet to come for media.

I have always believed that we’ve got to stop thinking of media as what it was and focus on more of what it could be 다운로드. In the world of plenty, the only currency is attention and attention is what defines “media.”
