On Wednesday, April 8, we’re holding a Tech Cocktail D.C. Sessions event featuring Captivology author Ben Parr and Khorus CEO Joel Trammell. Join us tomorrow night at Highline RxR in Crystal City, Arlington, VA.
A trained journalist – having previously served as Co-Editor and Editor-at-Large at Mashable, as well as columnist at CNET – Ben Parr has a lot to say about a lot of things in tech. Apropos, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he’s an active Twitter user, sharing his thoughts on all the various trends and issues affecting the industry. Looking through this Twitter feed, it wouldn’t take you long to find one that catches your attention; we recently looked through his feed and found 18 tweets that really caught our attention.
Last month, Parr published his first book Captivology: The Science of Capturing People’s Attention, which looks specifically at catching this kind of attention. Captivology explores the science behind attention, and how you can utilize that knowledge to get people to focus on you in the midst of today’s overstimulated and over-distracted world. On Wednesday, April 8, Parr will join us at Tech Cocktail’s D.C. Sessions event, where he’ll discuss some of the things he writes in the book. Make sure to grab a ticket now! Until then, check out some of Parr’s tweets that grabbed our attention.
