Kevin Kelly -- The Technium - Everything, Too Cheaply Metered
"In the long run, there is nothing that cannot be made more valuable by metering it. We are rapidly inventing new sensors to cheaply, accurately, and continuously measure all things in all dimensions: geo-graphical location, speed, consumption, health, fitness, repairablity, connection, performance, rest, charge, and a million other vectors. The skills to parse and divine meaningful patterns out of this new environment will become paramount and eagerly sought. Those who control the gateways to this metered information will be kings. Flows of goods and services formed the basis of the first global economy. Flows of data, the second. We are headed toward an economy built on the attention to data's data, or meta data. And there after, we'll build on the attention to attention. In this economy the revolution will be cheaply metered. Afterall, a bit is just a difference waiting to be measured."
