Attention Please

I have increasing appreciation for Philip Goodchild’s notion of attention as our mode of piety.  His premise of course is that money is our God demanding our attention in nearly all aspects of life.  I can’t help but think of the power of attention when I look at the protests in Cairo.  I have no insight into the actual issues themselves but I can see the effect of a mass turning of attention, a mass crystallizing of focus, on a particular issue.
