The Improved Attention Allocation Using Economics Community Group has been proposed:


This group's mission is to discuss the state of the Web as it pertains
to attention allocation, and to examine possible improvements in this
area. The group's primary activity will be to initiate discussions
around how the principles of economics and the notions of self-interest
and trade could be brought to bear on the problem of allocating
attention more equitably on the web.

The deliverables may include reports, specifications, proof of concept,
etc. with a view to eventually migrating the proposals generated here to
an appropriate standards track, given adequate support.

The ideal members who should consider joining this group are those who
are working at the intersection of the Web, computer science, and
economics. People who have skills in agent-based modeling of complex
adaptive systems are also encouraged to join.


You are invited to support the creation of this group:

Once the group has a total of five supporters, it will be launched and
people can join to begin work. Once launched, the group will no longer
be listed as "proposed"; it will appear in the list of current groups:

In order to support the group, you will need a W3C account. To request one:
