Happy August, Study Hall-ers!
Well, we're almost to the end of the estimable book, The Attention Merchants.
In part 4, we learn about the rise of the "Kardashian Kulture" and get into it a little over what we've done with the amazing attention-gathering machine we've built ourselves.
I've pretty much avoided dealing with the ethics of modern attention merchandising and (more precisely) advertising until now, and this section of the book seemed like a good place to do it.
This time, we're turning the comments on, so go ahead and leave a reaction/opinion.
