Economy of Attention
Elektor has neglected to indicate to its readers the function of the editorial piece which, like this one, opens each new E-Zine. Even if it’s a bit late, an update on this should not go amiss. The principle of the editorial is as follows: half a dozen authors are appointed to write it (as I’m doing here) in a roster established at the beginning of the year. They draw inspiration as they see fit, at random from a torrent of information. Such fresh news may resonate with the feeling of the day or with the personality of the editor; it gives birth to unexpected reflections and a short text like the one you’re now reading. And that’s The Editorial.
