”We have limited attention, chased by unlimited information.” A sequel to last year’s engaging Click Bubble presentation, this session will present a series of thought-provoking stats outlining our relationship with the attention economy. Our panelists will then explore and debate what roles journalism and regulation can, should, or should not play in our overwhelmed society. Framed through the metaphorical lens of attention guardians (quality journalism and news literacy), robbers (quantity-driven Big Tech, advertisers, bots, etc.), and police (government regulation and anti-misinformation platforms).

Who should attend: anyone concerned with the major forces shaping the future of journalism and our information ecosystem.

What to expect: memorable facts, and unique perspectives on the value of journalism, platforms, and regulation.
