How do YOU define Relevant Communications?

David Beisel extends on Linda Stone’s "continuous partial attention" thought by describing "Attention Theft".   I really like the phrase because it highlights the issue of suffering from information (or conversation) overload with a bit more emotion.   

In trying to address the problem of Attention Theft, I really like David’s quote:

As we proceed further along towards socially-influenced content production and filtering, the distinction between what is valuable and what isn’t may blur. Perhaps the challenge moving forward will also be deciding what the rules are, not just how they are applied.

Take this thought and apply it to the creation of context-aware, relevancy-centric Voice 2.0 communications.

I think this really is a fundamental question for emerging Voice 2.0 relevancy and context filters.

"What is the right set of RULES that filter/re-direct communications?", not just how they might be managed and applied.
