How to get my attention.

We live in an attention economy. Everyone seems to want your attention, from charity panhandlers outside of grocery stores to Madison Avenue ad firms, which plaster commercial messages on every available surface they can find.

This is especially true for those of us who write about products for a living. I'm reminded of that fact this time of year especially. With CES coming up, I'm getting dozens of emails every day inviting me to meetings and press events. Those are added to the normal torrent of emails and phone calls people like me get constantly.

My email inbox is an impenetrable fortress of filters built up over the past two years. I don't even check Facebook, Twitter or other networks. I screen calls with Google Voice. I reject 99% or more of the requests people make for meetings, almost always on the basis that such a meeting would waste their time and mine.

I am a rock. I am an island.

Except for one tiny folder in my Gmail inbox. That folder is where all my +Mike Elgan mail goes. If anyone plusses my name anywhere on Google+, I get a message, and I read it. That's also where someone is most likely to get action or a reply from me.

But don't tell anyone! This is our little secret. : )
