A little while ago I got an invitation to contribute to Medium, and decided to try it out this morning. I posted there an essay on Nigel Thrift's new piece on attention in the digital age, which I kind of went Morozov on. But it was a nice, brief example of how not to think about attention, media, and education.
I've copied it below the fold, in case Medium goes belly up. But they do lovely work, and I'm curious to see what kind of traffic one gets there.
