Is identity attention over time?

Adrian Chan asks Is attention over time not identity? while suggestiing, semifacetiously, that Creative Commons and AttentionTrust should merge.

Is what I make, and what I pay attention to, over time, not, basically, my identity? That’s how an Amazon would look at it. The consistency of my choices over time is, well, it’s what I like, and therefore to any commercial enterprise, it’s who I am (as far as they care).
Perhaps we could use a CC/AT/ID mashupcamp. Call it EgoCamp?

    hmmm … I think that’s a good observation — I’d like to hear more of your thoughts on this, Christian.
