Ethan Zuckerman proposes measuring attention with a unit of measure called a Kardashian. One Kardashian is equal to the amount of worldwide media attention that Kim Kardashian gets in a day. I choose the Kardashian as a unit both because I like the mitteleuropean feel of the term -- like the Ohm or the Roentgen -- and because Kardashian is an exemplar of attention disconnected from merit, talent or reason.

I was fortunate to attend the worldwide launch of the expanded Google Art Project here in Chicago's very own Art Institute this morning. If you haven't seen the high-res imagery, take a minute to zoom in on "A Sunday On La Grande Jatte":

I can't tell if the app featured in this video is imaginary or not, but it's a great theoretical solution to the problem of douche parking.
