We're supposed to be living in an "attention economy," right? But standard Web metrics don't really measure attention. Uniques, page views, monthly average users—none of these take into account how long a visitor spends, whether the visitor is satisfied, or even if the visitor is human and not a bot.

“our roles have shifted and expanded. The role of the broadcaster is not just to speak but to listen; the role of the audience is not just to listen but to speak. The Art of Immersion is about why this is happening, and where it will take us from here.”
Frank Rose, The Art of Immersion: How the Digital Generation Is Remaking Hollywood, Madison Avenue, and the Way We Tell Stories

“In that sense, “otaku” referred to a sudden, spontaneous, and, to most Japanese, inexplicable eruption of extreme obsessiveness among the country’s youth.
