Hello and welcome to this week’s Pulse — the weekly techie/businessy newsletter from @perspectiveix. I’m your host, Behrouz, and I’d like to thank you for being here.
We’re very close to our 100th Pulse issue here, and if I was a normal human being, I’d be preparing to celebrate it.

So, I decided to push myself even harder — and this time, with more speciality involved: Introducing Attentixn.

Attention is the new publication I’m working on where I try to make sense of what’s happening from an attention [economy] perspective.

Understanding attention and applying economic concepts to it in various situations helped me navigate my life [and my PhD] a lot better. I’m hoping it can help you too; even if it’s only one person and just a little bit.
